Share the Gospel
The church is always criticized on Social Media, the Internet has a lack of information about the church so we members of the church created LDS Themed websites and Groups on Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as a solution for the need of accurate and authentic information about the church on the Internet.

“I now extend to you the invitation to help transform the trickle into a flood. Beginning at this place on this day, I exhort you
to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth — messages that are authentic, edifying, and
praiseworthy — and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.”
– Elder Bednar
Sharing the gospel should be a natural part of life as a Latter-day Saint. As the Church grows, more and more people will ask questions, and it will be easier to respond with confidence if we pay attention to some basic principles.
One of those principles, Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles teaches, is that the gift of discernment operates best when we are listening. So while talking about the Church, remember that it may help to ask clarifying questions and to do as much listening as we do talking.
With that principle in mind, here are eight ways on how we can share the Gospel to others:
8 Simple Ways on how you can share the Gospel to others.
“With so many social media resources and a multitude of more or less useful gadgets at our disposal, sharing the good news of the gospel is easier and the effects more far-reaching than ever before,” President Dieter F.

LIVE YOUR RELIGION
A Latter-day Saint’s life is his or her best sermon. Our conversations ought to be open, genuine, and engaged in with a spirit of kindness. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are most believable when our actions are in harmony with our beliefs.
ESTABLISH A FOUNDATION
Rather than responding to random questions, it might be helpful to establish a foundation—explain that we embrace Jesus Christ as our Savior and accept the Bible’s teachings, but believe that the Christian world departed from basic truths, and so Christ needed to restore His Church.
CONNECT THE DOTS
Try to discern the gospel principle at the heart of a question, and connect the answer back to the Savior. We do not need complicated, sophisticated arguments when the principles we try to live by come from the Son of God.
Answering questions is not about reciting memorized answers. Sharing genuine, personal experiences can invite the Spirit to bear witness and carry the message into the listener’s heart.
UNDERSTAND YOUR AUDIENCE
The same conversation isn’t going to work for everyone—we all have different backgrounds. And remember that a casual question doesn’t require a half-hour lecture as a reply. Be sensitive to interest, comfort, and level of understanding. Signal that sensitivity so that those who are curious can feel at ease.
