Dr. Ravi Zacharias speaking to an overflow crowd at the Mormon Tabernacle this month said:

"We have our deep theological differences, but I think it's commendable that we find a common cause in trying to create a good moral soil in this culture and in this time."

Calling him a "powerful, persuasive voice," Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said Zacharias shared a faith and testimony to counter a minimization of religious faith and expression "unprecedented in American culture." He said those in attendance were united in their belief of Jesus Christ.

"In an increasingly secular world, and facing the attack on religious faith and religious freedom that we see all around us, it is imperative for the extended Christian community to acknowledge that what we have in common is so good, so far-reaching and so potentially powerful in addressing the ills of society and of the soul that the very least we can do is know and understand each other better than we do." Elder Holland said; Above all else… we are unequivocal that it is our shared love for the Lord Jesus Christ that brings us together in true brotherhood and sisterhood tonight and always."   How many ways can it be said:

“Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

Do not become partners with those who do not believe, for what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship does light have with darkness?”

Ravi Zacharias is only the latest in a series of evangelical leaders appearing before the LDS community. Southern Baptist leaders Richard Land and Albert Mohler, Assemblies of God leader George O. Wood, and former Fuller Seminary president Richard Mouw have made the trek to Utah and the pulpit of this religious cult.

Jesus preached and taught in synagogues, on hill sides and in homes, but in temples erected to teach, proclaim and preach a false religion - He did not teach, preach, proclaim or even enter.


  1. What are we to make of these people? By "these" I mean Ravi and Al Mohler??? In my opinion they are leading Mormons to believe they are right with Jesus when clearly they are not!

  2. Absolutely!! Tolerance over theology - and sadly souls hang in the balance.

  3. This just happened this month?! Ravi was already out there sometime last year or the year before, as I remember.

    These guys really need to get some common sense!

  4. Yes, he spoke again at the Mormon tabernacle on January 18, 2014.

  5. What a big disappointment. I guess this is what happens when people like Ravi become so popular.

    I haven't see anything about this. What was he there for in the first place?!?! Why not use the opportunity to speak about the fraud of Mormonism!?!

  6. I first heard about it on SRN news - then did a web search and found out more. His reason for being there I have no clue, but it is sad that so many are compromising the gospel of Jesus Christ.
