    A Faulty Premise Leads to Misplaced Optimism

    (This book is an abridged version of another Rhodes opus entitled, "Reasoning from the Scriptures with the Mormons")

    Ron Rhodes is a prolific writer, but quantity doesn't automatically translate into quality. While Rhodes' take on what Mormon's believe is usually accurate, his understanding of some of the core doctrines of Christianity is flawed on many levels. This makes him a less than solid choice for Christian apologetics. Many of his books are based on the faulty premise that one can, through force of logical argument, lead someone of a different faith to Rhodes' particular interpretation of Christianity. While this occasionally may work with the adherents of some non-Christian religions, it will rarely work with Mormons.

    Mormonism is not primarily a religion, but rather a shadow culture hiding in plain sight among the prevailing cultures of the regions where it attempts to gain dominance. It is also a powerful economic enterprise. Some have described it as an "open cult", where many of the cultic beliefs are available for investigation by non-Mormons. In recent years, as the evidence has become overwhelming that the founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith Junior, was an outright fraud, and that their many sources of "scripture" have been spun from the fertile imaginations of Smith and others, the LDS leadership has tried to "bullet-proof" LDS doctrine by promoting the belief that, "When our leaders have spoken, it is time for thinking to stop." In other words, pointing out the contradictions, inconsistencies, and frauds perpetrated by the LDS, as Rhodes urges, is mostly met with blind allegiance to Mormon leaders. Logic and truth are trumped by a "burning in the bosom" of the Mormon one is trying to proselytize. It is far better to love the Mormons one encounters, and let your life be your witness. When the Holy Spirit moves your Mormon friends to ask questions, a clear proclamation of the Gospel will be far more effective than Rhodes' 10 point plan.
