1. “I can’t _______”
As Latter-day Saints there are some things we shouldn’t eat, or do, or watch. But that’s the thing. We shouldn’t. It’s not that we can’t. We are choosing a higher path. Saying “I can’t drink alcohol but if I weren’t Mormon I totally would” shows little faith in the revelations God has given us. Consider saying “I choose not to _______.” Because in reality, that’s exactly what it is.
2. “The Bible has mistakes”
We believe The Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly, so yes, in a sense we do believe it went through wrong hands. But that doesn’t mean we should vocalize that to our friends and family not of our faith. It could turn them off to the idea of learning additional teachings of the restored gospel. The Bible is a beautiful word of God that has so much truth and so much to teach us. But it’s simply one piece in an even bigger puzzle. Let investigators know that we don’t disparage the Bible that we all love.
