Joseph Smith Jr., the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, claimed he was restoring the genuine church to the earth, a church absent since the first century. But is Mormonism truly Christian?
Do you find yourself on the defensive when a Mormon team knocks at your door? You probably wonder: Should I let them in? How can I tell them to go away without being unkind? Shall I try to witness to them? What should I say? This article will help you to know what to expect, how you can reply, and how to be a witness to your faith.
Each year, the Jehovah's Witnesses spend about 2 billion hours evangelizing their communities around the world in 357 languages. Here is what you need to know in order to effectively share your faith with JWs when they come knocking.

Have you ever had the opportunity of sharing God's Word with a Muslim? If you have or if you have seen them on a news program being interviewed, you likely noticed that they a fervent, intense, passionate, zealous belief in God.
Many think that they know the Jehovah's Witnesses, but the sources are usually twofold: (1) They are misinformed Bible scholars who have read books and websites by disgruntled ex-Jehovah's Witnesses. (2) They have read books or comments by disgruntled ex-Jehovah's Witnesses. Herein you will learn a lot that you may have not known and learn some things about how to better evangelize them, or if you are even up to evangelize them. Moreover, we will use some arguments often raised about Jehovah's Witnesses as our text case from such persons as J. Warner Wallace is a leading Evangelical Christian apologist today.
The person you are sharing the Gospel with says, “I am an atheist.” Nevertheless, you still want to find a way to have a discussion with the person and offer them your insights and maybe recommend some books that can help them see that there is solid scientific evidence that points to the existence of a Creator.
