While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

Christian Out of Mormonism: A Woman's True Storyoffsite by Judy Robertson
When Judy and Jim Robertson felt a spiritual void in their lives, they found "the finest people in the world" to embrace them and a beautifully packaged religion to entice them. Once drawn into Mormonism, they quickly climbed to leadership positions and became worthy temple Mormons, only to become disillusioned with the teaching and demands of the LDS church. From her unique insider's viewpoint, Judy shares her life as a Mormon woman, her rediscovery of the Jesus of the Bible, and how she and Jim found freedom as they left the LDS church in the face of persecution and confrontation.

Christian Where Does It Say That?offsite A collection of photos of original documents showing the problems of Mormonism. Useful witness tool for those that enounter the mormon question, "Where does it say that?" (Note: an online version, presenting scanned documents, is available as well).
The average person couldn't even begin to locate original copies of the Journal of Discourses, first editions of The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, or copies of the early Mormon newspapers, journals or diaries.

Such books and newspapers are the source documents for the original teachings of the Mormon churches. However, when Mormons see some of these "unbelievable" statements made by their leaders, they will often dismiss them by saying, "That is obviously out of context of misquoted!" In most cases they have never even seen the original source material themselves and what they really mean is, "I cannot believe that my founding prophets and apostles could have meant what they said!"

Thus, the whole purpose for the existence of this volume is to make actual photo-copies of these original documents available to everyone. You now have at your fingertips, selected pages from several thousand dollars worth of rare books, pamphlets, diaries and manuscripts as well as companion quotations from many current Mormon sources. Use them well in your search for truth!
