Why Southern Baptists dislike Mormons

 WELS converts people at their college.




Why Southern Baptists dislike Mormons:



"That's a bridge too far -- much easier is convincing Christians that Joseph Smith's new-and-improved version of Christianity is the "only true and living church."

Southern Baptists have been aware about the threat of Mormon missionaries for decades:

In the early 1980s, Southern Baptist Convention leaders discovered — much to their horror — that 40 percent of Mormonism's 217,000 converts in 1980 came from Baptist backgrounds. More than 150 Mormon missionaries had descended on the northern Georgia area alone, a Southern Baptist magazine noted warily in 1982, and they found Southern Baptists among their most promising targets.

Here's just one example of Mormon missionaries "lying for the Lord" in their campaign to convert Christians:
A Mormon missionary admitted by letter that he was recruiting for the Mormon church at a Christian singles group.

When the pastor confronted him, he outright lied to the pastor until the pastor showed him his own letter. Caught in embarrassment, he then apologized, only to turn around and repeat the same thing at a later time in the same church.

IMHO, Southern Baptists dislike Mormons in part because they have been competitors for tithing true-believers for a long time."
