He's been to LDS general conference and sacrament meeting, given a family home evening lesson and shared his beliefs during fast and testimony meeting.
But the one thing that still puzzles Talha Siddiqui, 19, a Muslim from Islamabad, Pakistan, is why Latter-day Saint students at Brigham Young University in Provo are so eager to get married.

Jim Lincoln wrote: Yes, Muhammadanism, and other cults such as, Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses have much more in common with each other than they do with Christianity. Martin Luther said in effect there are only two religions, Christianity and then everything else.

Martin Luther wrote: Those who do not know God in Christ arrive at this erroneous conclusion: "I will serve God in such and such a way. I will join this or that order.
