I was saved in the fall of 1987.
A friend was telling about Mormons (I was Lutheran) and some of the strange doctrines they held. He challenged me to read a book about the Mormons that contrasted Mormon doctrine with the Bible. While reading that book I realized how bizarre the Mormons were and slowly it dawned on me that I didn’t believe the truth that was given to counter the false doctrine. After “white-knuckling” for three weeks, knowing that if I were to die I would go to hell, I went forward during the Sunday invitation at Highland Baptist Church in Salt Lake City, Utah, and accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.
