Rodric believes Moroni included special instruction for Modern times and wants to share his unique perspective the same way Moroni shared in The Book of Mormon.

Sometimes, the best thing to do is to be quiet

No one likes to be wrong. No one that I know likes to be wrong! I know I don't! 

I spoke to a coworker about my religious beliefs and it went well until he discovered what my religion is: I am a Mormon.

We vibed on the things that were alike in our belief system, but he could not reconcile my faith with his, Adventist--though there was little difference in morality. 

I saw opportunity to use our common ground to convince my coworker that I and my fellow Mormons are noble and great, but I did not do what I intended with our conversation.


I spoke to him for several minutes before he passed judgement out of prejudice, and I know that my sincere explanations and invitations touched his soul. I could see the connection in his eyes until he discovered my Christian faith. 


He may believe that my faith is jaded, but not by my actions or through differences in moral values. He did judge because he lacked full information. Now he knows he judges out of sheer desire. This can give him the opportunity to change.


I did not defend my faith very well I though initially because I did not say enough. I later decided by not saying too much more I did.


Sometimes, quiet composure can say more than a room full of apologists.
