African churches were founded by small groups breaking off from the European denominations, especially in Yorubaland, where such independence movements started as early as the late nineteenth century. In my mind, Mormons need to be constantly reminded of the basic beliefs of their religion and why these beliefs are so far out of the mainstream of Christianity. We gather annually for fellowship, worship, nurture, support, and education at the General Assembly of the Christian Church and in other locations during years when the Assembly does not meet.

I say to the whole world, receive the truth, no matter who presents it to you. When did the Father and Son ever disagree about what church people should be members of? or about how to worship God? or about the plan of salvation? or about the organization of the church? It may be that in the not-too-distant future, we will have to categorize Mormonism as a separate world religion. The most explicit examples are when blacks were finally given the right to hold the priesthood (1978), and when polygamy was banned by Mormon President Wilford Woodruff (1890).

There are many religions and denominations in the world. If someone looks to Christ for salvation and seeks to follow Him, in my mind, that's enough to qualify as being a Christian, regardless of other theological differences. Therefore, one might say the most fundamental difference between Lutheran and many Methodist churches is that the Lutheran church is a confessional church (i.e., it binds itself and its member congregations to a specific, formal confession of faith) while the Methodist church, in its varied forms, tends not be as concerned with formal "confessions" of faith to which its congregations must subscribe.

No, as has already been stated by other posters above. I think the notion was that Mormonism could be considered a different religion because they have a different book than most Christians. The task of the Joseph Fielding Smith Institute for Latter-day Saint History is the scholarly study of the history, institutions, people, and culture of the Latter-day Saints. The result was the "Book of Mormon", published at Palmyra, New York in March, 1830; in the preface eleven witnesses, exclusive of Joseph Smith, the translator, claim to have seen the plates from which it was taken.

These men recognized that denominations had departed from the message of the Scriptures with their creeds and doctrines and therefore desired to return to the faith of the Apostles. The Roman world was home to many sects labeled “Christian” that would seem odd and downright weird to us this side of the Council of Nicea. I will shoot him, or cut off his head, spill his blood on the ground and let the smoke thereof ascend up to God, and if ever I have the privilege of making a law on that subject I will have it so."

Here is a brief case for why biblical theism has greater evidence than any other worldview. A decline in a conservative denominational church is often offset by an increase in a conservative non-denominational church. This is the cardinal tenet of Hinduism. Well, the Christian life is full of challenges to be sure, but submitting to a false prophet is not part of the program. Tolerance is taught in the church following the maxim "love the sinner, despise the sin."

However, once he has been cleansed, he is released into a wonderful state of existence known as the Telestial Kingdom. Their stance is NOT what all Christianity is about at all.

LDS officials today declined to comment on Jeffress' statements until they see a transcript of the remarks, spokeswoman Kim Farah said.
