100 Questions to Ask Mormons

I was a mormon so I can give you a pretty good idea about what questions to ask Mormons.

Asking questions to Mormons is quite easy because they have well-documented beliefs.

If you have to ask questions to Mormons or Mormon missionaries, please be polite, most of them are really nice people.

Don’t try to embarrass them or anything like that specially if you are a believer since somebody can do the exact same thing to you.
