Let it go. It’s still the fastest growing, wealthiest church. It seems the more you do, the less impact you have.
“…the standard of truth has been erected; No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the great Jehovah shall say the work is done.” – Joseph Smith, Jr.
Guess he was prophetic after all. Keep up your futile “ministry”.
First of all, it’s a mere myth that Mormonism is the fastest growing religion. It’s growth has become somewhat stagnant, is decelerating, and the retention rate is alarming (in a negative way). I invite you to read a book by a Mormon which speaks of these problems:
Secondly, and most important, Mormonism’s growth rate and wealth have absolutely nothing to do with whether or not its claims are in fact true. Appealing to wealth and population as a measure of truth is arrogant and shows that one does not understand the power or character of God and his kingdom. Our ministry is not about numbers or money, it’s about the truth and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
God says of himself in Isaiah 43:10, “Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me.” The Psalmist says of him, “from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Psalm 90:2)
Do you worship this God?
Grace and peace in Christ, who justifies the ungodly by faith apart from works (Romans 4:4-8),
