Mormonism is not Christian
The evidence is overwhelming to the reasonable and objective mind, that Joseph Smith was being led not by the Spirit of God but by a different Spirit altogether. The Mormon religion, by it's own teachings, cannot in any manner be considered "Christian." Just the opposite. It is a false religion led by a different spirit, not of God.
To quote John Ankerberg in his book, "What Do Mormons Really Believe? ", "Mormonism believes in multiple gods, different holy books, a different Jesus, and different views of sin, salvation, and the afterlife. The Bible clearly teaches that any group that teaches a different view of salvation and of Jesus than that presented in the Bible is a non-Christian movement. It is not just "another way to God."
The pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, was correct, whether the Presidential candidates or the media, or anyone else begs to differ. The facts are the facts.
Whether Michelle Bachman thinks this is not what people are talking about or not, it is what they are thinking about, and not to be underestimated when it comes to the voting booth.
Whether Ron Paul understands where liberty comes from or not, the issue is only partly the Constitution. The underlying issue is what one believes about the truth, and the author of truth, whose teachings form the underlying principles of our Constitution.
Whether Newt Gingrich thinks it was "unwise and very inappropriate", I disagree. No member of a cult, having agreed with it's false foundation and deceptive teachings, can be good for the restoration of America "under God". John Jay, first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court said,
"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."
Thus may it be, LORD.
