Thanks @MatthewMoisen for the notify. @ GarrettJ: Ah, I see that now, and it does answer my appended question, so that suffices. Thanks for pointing that out!

comment How do Mormon missionaries learn foreign languages so quickly?
Thanks for the answer! Just so you know, I updated my post to include a question on the LDS belief about the gift of tongues. You're welcome to comment on that in your answer, or I'll still accept this as-is!

Added gift of tongues question as an after-thought

@TheFreemason It's not that it's superior to use "Elder "for missionaries or for them to travel in pairs, it's just a matter of fact: how or why. There's no "Mormons are better" here. I wish people would stop assuming Mormons think they are special.

@TheFreemason This question is no different than other existing ones such as Why do Mormon missionaries travel in pairs? and Why do Mormons use the term "elder" for their missionaries? - to be continued...

@Narnian Stop reading too much into this question; I'm not asking for a comparison. I'm looking for a clear, factual answer about the process of training Christian missionaries.

@AffableGeek Maybe a couple of months, but the ones I've talked to didn't mention using software. @ TheFreemason I think so, since missionary work into every land is a Christian commission, it definitely has relevance.

comment What is the basis that many mainstream Christian groups justify labeling groups like the Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses as Non Christians?
Well, okay. I guess that works in the traditional Christian and Catholic meanings of those words. For clarification, though, Mormons consider all God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Spirit as divine.

How do you define divine (in your last paragraph)?

comment Why do Jehovah's Witnesses travel in pairs?
I thought I've seen them proselyte in neighborhoods in groups... though perhaps their actual door approaches are in pairs or as individuals. Anyway, this is a valid question. +1

comment Why were verses taken out of the Bible when it was being formed? Was there any major stuff taken out?
@CecilBeckum Also a good point. We could leave it up to 83457 to revise the question for now.
