OBJECTION #2: YOUR DAUGHTER THINKS HER LDS BOYFRIEND IS A CHRISTIAN: Even though in the first part of your conversation with your daughter, you attempted to address any concerns she had about her own faith in comparison to Mormonism, she may still claim that these differences are insignificant and that she believes her Mormon boyfriend is indeed a “Christian” because he “believes in Jesus Christ.” Are you prepared to explain why her LDS boyfriend’s “belief” in “Jesus Christ” is not the same as her belief?Mormonism uses Christian terminology with completely different meanings.She may have questions about the distinction of persons in the Trinity, three heavens mentioned in the Bible, baptism for the dead and Mormon priesthood authority.Because of the way LDS (Mormon) missionaries twist Biblical Scripture to make the false doctrines of Mormonism appear true, you will need to be prepared to defend your faith and accurately explain the Scripture verses that Mormonism abuses in support of its doctrines.If she agrees to this meeting, you are well on your way to being able to have a heart-to-heart discussion with her. ESTABLISH COMMON GROUND AND ADDRESS HER OBJECTIONS.A good way to start your meeting with your daughter is to ask her what she sees in this young man that has captured her interest in him and his religion.You could say that this is the reason you would prefer that her LDS boyfriend not be present at this meeting.Let her know that your hope is that this meeting would be a time for honest communication, where you and she can discuss the implications of her choices in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
We are concerned she is thinking about becoming a Mormon, and we need information on how best to handle this situation.” OUR RESPONSE: We often receive inquiries from concerned parents whose son or daughter is dating a Mormon.Then, explain that because you love her, you feel a responsibility as her parents to share the concerns you have over this relationship, but this in no way reflects a desire to “run” or “control” her life.At this point, it would be good to ask if she would be willing to engage in an open and honest dialogue with you over her reasons for dating this LDS young man and what interests her about Mormonism.How would it affect your ability to teach your children about God?
Why does God warn against being “bound together” with an unbeliever?Thus, we recommend that the best way to approach your daughter in this situation is to emphasize that while you have “concerns” about her choice to date this Mormon man, you will always love her as your daughter, no matter what choice she makes in regard to this relationship.
