Starting At The Finish LineStarting at the Finish Line seeks to declare the Good News of the gospel in a way that sounds like “good news” to the Latter-day Saint. It does this by 1) establishing the authority and “correctness” of our modern Bible, 2) explaining how we are saved by the grace of God when we put our full faith and trust in the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, and in His blood alone, and, 3) exposing the dangers of trying to contribute to our own salvation by adding obedience and good works to the finished work of Christ on the cross. This message, to the devout Latter-day Saint, is overly simplistic and offensive. But to the struggling Mormon or to those who have already left the Mormon faith and find themselves lost in a sea of confusion…music to their ears! God gives eternal life to all those who will but receive it in faith.

About the Author:
Dr.John Wallace was an active member of the Mormon church for twenty years, serving a full-time mission to Argentina in the mid-80’s, and holding a variety of leadership positions within the church. But in 1993, John walked away from Mormonism, owing mainly to his deep concerns regarding Mormon temple worship and the unique doctrine of the literal deification of man: “As God is, man may become.” After several years of “self-imposed atheism”, John came back to his original roots and began to search the Bible for answers. Reading the Bible without the filter of religion, and attending a non-denominational, Bible-teaching church, John came to saving faith in Jesus Christ. He came to realize that it is not at all about religion, but rather a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. It was only after his born-again experience that John felt the compelling need to reach back to his LDS family and friends in order to share the astounding truth that it is “by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves.” John is a practicing dentist in Southern California as well as Director of Singles Ministry at his home church, Calvary Chapel Westgrove. Dr. Wallace is available to speak to churches and organizations, and is considered an expert in the area of witnessing to Latter-day Saints.
