We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
We are a respectful religion and people. We believe in the First Amendment of Freedom of Religion. I have never sat through a worship service where we spend our time preaching against another religion. That's just not done. We spend our time speaking of the Savior and how we can become more like Him. It's sad that some churches feel it necessary to have sermons and conferences demonizing the LDS church. It is very prevalent in the area I live, and you can even read the jabs on the churches billboards. If they only knew that we love them and respect them for all the goodness that they do. It would be nice if it could be reciprocated.
Now, we are a missionary church. You've probably seen our young men of 19-21 years old riding around on their bikes in suits. I lovingly refer to them as the pedaling Mormons. These young men and young woman are not out to force religion on anyone. Remember we believe in letting others worship "How where or what they may". But, we are out there to share something that we feel is precious to us and worth sharing. If they show up at your door, you can respectfully listen to their message or respectfully turn them away. That is your choice. Please remember to be respectful and kind. My oldest will be putting aside college, giving up his time and money to become a "pedaling Mormon" in just a year and a half. It is a huge self sacrifice to put your self aside and dedicate two years to the Lord and serving in the community of your own will. Remember they are someone's sons or daughters and brothers or sisters.
