Why Evangelical Ministries to Convert Mormons Lose to Secularism

According to the “Why Mormons Question” survey, 55% of Mormons who leave the LDS Church become atheist/agnostic while only 11% find another Christian church. There are countless Christian ministries that train on how to evangelize Latter-day Saints, organize protests at Mormons functions, publish tracts and books, etc. Yet Christians lose to atheism at a nearly 5 to 1 ratio, despite near-zero effort from atheist organizations to single out Mormons. The reason why can be found in sociological data and ex-Mormon narratives. Though Mormons’ first exposure to critical information about the Church often comes from Christian ministries, further inquiry leads them to atheism.
