Mormon Apologia’s purpose offers thoughtful , fair and objective articles to both Members and investigators of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These articles range from daily devotional’s, current Sunday school curriculum for 14-18 and adults, inspirational articles that encourage a deeper and more meaningful life; as well as give an objective and proper view of Church history, doctrine, and current teaching.
The youth mutual theme for 2013 is based on Doctrine and Covenants 87:8 where we are commanded to stand and not be moved:
Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold it cometh quickly, saith the Lord, Amen.
Beginning January 1, 2013, Mormon Apologia will be adopting this theme as well. Feature articles will offer insightful living and a fair objective approach in how all members of the Christian faith can stand in holy places and not be moved. Along with these featured articles, devotionals will consist a reading through Nehemiah for thirteen days, reading through Proverbs (along with PDF downloadable documents) and other relevant and applicable devotions.
Latter-day Saint Christians will also focus on learning about the Doctrine and Covenants as well as the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These articles will be brief and simple to encourage discussion about the Restored Gospel in these last days, the nature and purpose of the Doctrine and Covenants as scripture, and how we can apply the principle teachings from this modern set of revelations. Those who are curious and investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are welcome to join in the conversation and learn more about what we believe, how we understand our beliefs, and how we truly are the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ in these last days.
In addition to these articles, devotional and curriculum studies, we also will offer articles geared toward the youth of the Church as well as the youth of other faiths and how they too can stand in holy places and not be moved. Such topics will focus on the brief summation of what our youth experience and the challenges they face today. From dating to serving others, these help the youth solidify their faith in and becoming strong disciples of Christ to preach the Gospel and share the hope of the Gospel. Mormon Apologia will give brief articles on the First Presidency message, visiting teaching messages, and commentary on articles published in the Ensign, New Era, and Friend Magazine where the desire is for families to use these particular topics as discussion points within their families.
Finally, every month, a downloadable version of Mormon Apologia will be provided, as well as a hard copy in a monthly magazine format. The downloadable file and magazine format will be available for purchase for a nominal fee, or single articles can be purchased for download.
