Information about the audio download Why Join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? (Previously titled Why Join the Mormons?)
Why Join the Mormons? is an informative talk directed to potential members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as to those who are already members of the Church.
It focuses on the nature of a testimony, tells how a testimony is received, and shows the importance of a testimony as the basis for the conversion process.
The talk also reviews the blessings and obligations of Church membership, presenting them in the light of the many opportunities found in the Church’s organizations and programs. In addition, it describes the “Mormon lifestyle” as it surveys the many theological, social, economic, health and practical factors which will influence people’s lives when they enter the waters of baptism.
An important feature is the comparison of sectarian viewpoints with Latter-day Saint perspectives on many subjects, showing the greater depth and insights found in Mormonism.
Why Join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?, (previously titled Why Join the Mormons?) focuses on basic principles, doctrines, and social benefits. It speaks of
- health principles found in the “Word of Wisdom,”
- the great emphasis on family life within the Church,
- the widespread humanitarian efforts of the Latter-day Saints,
- the reality that only through eternal marriage and family sealings performed in the Church’s many temples can families be together after death. And
- it emphasizes that only through baptism performed by one holding priesthood authority can one actually come unto Christ and begin to receive blessings and opportunities leading toward the highest level of his eternal grace.
Its message is ideal for those preparing themselves to enter the waters of baptism and for those seeking a stronger basis for their personal faith.
