Talk About It
  1. In what ways have you been subjected to manipulation, anger, or judgmental words since leaving Mormonism?
  2. Read Ephesians 6:11-12. Who is our real battle against? How does that make a difference in our relationship with LDS people who oppose our new faith identity? 
  3. Does it help you to know that the people who oppose are speaking out of deception and bondage? Why or why not?
  4. How does being in a performance-based religion help to foster self-deception?
  5. Do you agree or disagree that a person’s anger might reveal that they are being convicted? Explain.
