Evangelical leader says commonality with Mormons deeper than differences
Borrowing an ancient Hebrew word from an Old Testament text, one of America‚Äôs leading evangelical Christian scholars told nearly 2,000 young Mormons at Utah Valley University Friday that his faith and their faith, often at odds with each other through the years over doctrinal disparities, ‚Äúneed to find ways we can work together‚ÄĚ to find ‚Äúshalom,‚ÄĚ or peace.
‚ÄúGod has placed us in the world, in this nation, and calls us to seek the shalom together,‚ÄĚ said Dr. Richard J. Mouw, president emeritus of the Fuller Theological Seminary and noted author of such books as ‚ÄúUncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil World.‚ÄĚ...
LDS doctrine includes Jesus being a spirit brother with Satan, and that per the church fathers/"prophets", man can become as God with his own separate planet to rule - hardly common with any Christian doctrine and found nowhere in the Bible.
Somebody needs to show them Gal.1:8 King James Bible But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. That's clearly sums up Joeseph Smiths claim that an angel came to him and revealed this false teaching to him.
Not only Christianity has nothing in common with Mormonism, John Y., it has nothing common with any religious organization that has works as part of their false salvation ideas, q.v., Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses.
Mouw sure is being influenced by Satan into believing that Christianity has anything in common with Mormonism. There is nothing whatsoever in common between Christianity and Mormonism because Mormonism believes in and worships a multiplicity of gods, does not worship Jesus as God, believes in a holy spirit that is a fluid, believes that the devil and Jesus are brothers, believes that Joseph Smith is god.
