this is very true Don. Also, they try to field off any questions on what is true or not by recommending that people pray about it and do what feels right. Problem is that someone that has no experience in reading the Bible hardly know how to go about it and they feel pressured by the apparent knowledge of the Mormon 'witnesses'.

I have had few interactions with Mormons as Mormons, mostly only as other people. The little I know is that I have heard that they use many different definitions for words that are also used by Christians, so it can seem they and us are saying similar things when we are not.

I think it is rough for them. From the few conversations I've had with them, I gather that they cannot even think about a relationship until they are done with their internship. And since they gather together with the women for lunches and other things, when they meet someone they may like they have to be very careful. Since so much rides on marriage, even more so than Christians promote, that has to be emotionally tough.
However, before they go out they have been pretty well indoctrinated. So, while they come up to lots of disagreements in their house to house canvassing, they're already taught to field off the different reactions. It's an interesting system playing into some really fantastic lies, which have been taught since birth.
