Thank God for your website! - 10/02/2002
To you fellow Christians,
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXXX and I am a student at Northern Arizona University. I gave my life to Christ about two years ago. I want to thank you for your amazing website. I have a Mormon roommate that is going on a mission trip in December, and he will not be back at school for another two years. Although I admire his strength and courage for going on this mission, I know that the word he will be spreading is not the word of the one true God. Because of your website, and others, I now know that Joseph Smith was a false prophet. And now I can tell him why. God be with all of you.
CONTENDER MINISTRIES RESPONSE:
Hello XXXXXX. Thank you for contacting Contender Ministries. What a wonderful email to receive. We give praise to God that you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. It's been two years for you now, but never lose that eagerness for His Word. We also praise the Lord that you love your roommate enough to share the truth of the Gospel of Christ with Him. It won't be easy, but God promises us that he will give us the words to use. You and your roommate are in our prayers. If he does not immediately concede the truth of what you tell him, don't worry. The Bible tells us that sometimes all we can do is plant a seed, then trust the Holy Spirit to make that seed grow. By contending for your faith, you honor the God who has redeemed you. May God bless you in your studies, and as you contend for the faith!
