Had three Mormons visit my wife and I last night. Two were the regular Elders who have been around a couple times before (though one is being shipped to another area soon). The third was a female member of the local church (not a missionary though).
It was another nice 2 hour long session, filled with plenty of light chit chat and plenty of snacks. Strangely enough, I can’t remember most of what we actually discussed pertaining to Mormonism, though I did bring up the problem of chapters of Deutero-Isaiah being quoted in 1 & 2 Nephi (which none of them had heard before).
My wife asked about the concept of a heavenly mother (i.e. the wife of God). They essentially said it isn’t a topic that is discussed much in the LDS Church, which is what I figured considering I hadn’t really seen it mentioned in all the Mormon literature I have read. The lady did sing for us that one hymn that mentions a “heavenly mother” though.
The Elders discussed a couple of specific verses of the Bible and how they pertain to receiving a revelation from God concerning the veracity of the Book of Mormon. The passages were 1 Kings 19.11-13 (“…and after the fire, a still small voice”) and Galatians 5.22 (“the fruit of the Spirit is…”).
Needless to say, we were not convinced to join the LDS Church, and neither were they convinced that Joseph Smith was a fraud. But they were very nice, polite, and friendly. I look forward to our next visit!
