Watch the video above and talk about it with a friend or mentor.

In Utah, Mormonism and its influence are like part of the air we breathe. Mormons often dominate in society. That may seem daunting to non-Mormons, especially newcomers. But there is hope.

Key Points:

  • In Utah, Christians Live in a Culture Dominated by a Different Faith
  • Living in Utah, You Can Not Only Survive but Thrive
  • We Have a Positive Message for Our LDS Neighbors
  • We Choose to Talk About Mormonism with a Respectful Attitude
  • We Choose to Interact with Mormons with Wisdom and Sensitivity
  • Sharing Good New with LDS Is Challenging but Hopeful

Talk About It

  2. What is your initial reaction to this video? Do you disagree with any of it? What jumped out at you?
  3. How long have you lived in Utah? What were your first impressions when you moved here?
  4. What were your initial fears or concerns about living in Utah? Compare your actual experience to your expectations.
  5. Compare 2 Corinthians 11:4 with Acts 19:37 (see above). How can Christians defend the truth against a “different gospel” without “speaking against” Mormonism?

  7. What are some ways to demonstrate respect for our neighbors even though we disagree about ultimate truth?
  8. What are some factors that make it challenging to share your faith with Mormons? How does this make you feel?
  9. On a scale of 1 to 10, do you feel like hiding out until you can leave Utah (1), or like you want to try to make a difference (10)?
  10. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
