Our Christian friends keep telling us how they have the ‘Holy Spirit dwelling within them’ yet it appears roughly half of the American Christian population* considers Mormons to be Christians whilst others would passionately decry it as polytheism!
The real question is why in the world are the ‘Holy Spirit inspired Christians’ in utter disagreement on the issue of Mormons - why can't they differentiate between polytheism and their faith if they truly have the 'Holy Spirit dwelling within'? Interesting.
BTW, in case you want a serious answer to the question, it’s simple; Christians do not, despite their beliefs, have the ‘Holy Spirit dwelling within’, thus are prone to such theological disagreements.
Mormon, Danielle O. McClellan Shocks Evangelical Christian (James White)
Unless White can document the rejection of Mormonism as Christian by “the entire spectrum of Christian churches” I would ask him to avoid hyperbole. But as has been pointed out in the comments section of this post, White’s hyperbole is demonstrably false. A 2007 Pew Research Center Survey (found here) found that 40% of white Evangelicals, 62% of white mainline Protestants, 43% of black Protestants, and 52% of Catholics identify Mormons as Christians. Historically, I have seen a these responses to these data. It usually comes down either to the notion that these people must not be real Christians; that it’s the church’s official judgment that counts, and that’s determined by whether or not they consider Mormon baptisms legitimate (or something along those lines); or the data will simply be ignored. Perhaps White will have a different approach
Muslim, MaratSafin, Shocks Fundamentalist Christians
This entire post is actually based on the comment below:
btw mr radical do you believe mormons to be christians? according to this blog post by a mormon here http://danielomcclellan.wordpress.com/2011/04/24/responding-to-james-white-part-3/ 62% of white mainline protestants consider mormons to be christians!!! wow, i guess christians cant differentiate between thier religion and polythiestic one. btw radical if dare read the exchange between the above blogger and james white, it sure did open my eyes about certains things in the bible and it showed how ineffective james white has been against mormons because in all honesty this guy took him to the cleaners. hey if you do read the exchange you might convert to mormonism and support romney or huntsman!!! two guys that seem sane when stood next to palin,gingrinch,cain and bachman
Perhaps our Christian friends are now rethinking their belief structure
