Christ Has Called Us To Be Fishers of Men

We all know that Christ called his apostles to be “Fishers of Men” … and the Bible says they “straightway left their nets to follow him” (see Matt. 4: 18-22).  What we may not remember, though, is that the same charge, the same invitation, is extended to all of us as well, especially as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That’s … Continue reading Christ Has Called Us To Be Fishers of Men

Why I Started TheDailyMormon.com

I started this blog to help people learn the truth about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, otherwise known as the Mormons. There are a lot of differing opinions online about Mormons and a large number of them are misrepresentative, twisted, or just plain false. The “anti-Mormonism” movement, if you want to call it that, while really baffling and disrespectful/hurtful in a lot … Continue reading Why I Started TheDailyMormon.com

We All Know Who Will Win the Fight

Ultimately, when it comes down to it, as I mentioned in my first post, there’s a definite battle going on … for the souls of men, women, and children (and our happiness) everywhere. And, in many respects, it looks like Satan is winning (even though he isn’t and even though we know in the end he’ll lose … big time). It feels a little daunting, … Continue reading We All Know Who Will Win the Fight

Mormonism … and the Father of Lies

I’ve decided to start this blog, The Daily Mormon, with the goal of writing a post daily to help clarify many of the questions surrounding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints … also known as Mormonism or the Mormon Church. There is, in many respects, a very real “battle” going on these days, especially online. Good people are seeking the truth about God, looking for … Continue reading Mormonism … and the Father of Lies
