October 28 – Status of a pre-existence for Jesus and mankind. John 6:38; “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”
This is an awesome verse to share with a Mormon for two reasons!
1.It shows there is no pre-existence for mankind, contrary to what the Mormon Church has taught.
2.It shows a fulfilled prophecy from Proverbs 30:4a!
Taking just a few minutes to show a Mormon that God fulfilled prophecy given by a man, Agur, who lived in Jerusalem c. BC 1000, tells them you’re a student of what God says, and it demonstrates your concern for them as well.
Mortal Messiah 1:23; “Christ and all men are spirit children of the Father… He begat us; we are the offspring of Heavenly Parents; we have an Eternal Father and an Eternal Mother. We were born as spirits, and we dwelt in the presence of our Eternal Parents; we lived before our mortal birth…Christ was the Firstborn of all the heavenly host; Lucifer was a son of the morning…and Christ is our Elder Brother.” – Bruce McConkie
