At BYU, Baptist says Mormons and evangelicals 'may go to jail together'
LDS Church apostles and leaders of other faiths increasingly are cultivating relationships with one another, a process recently accelerated by shared concerns over religious liberty.
Mentioning what he termed his "friendship" with LDS officials, a Baptist leader on Monday gave what once might have been considered a unique speech at BYU, saying that while Mormons and evangelicals are divided theologically, they share "common concerns and urgencies" about "unprecedented and ominous" attacks on religious freedom.
"I do not believe that we are going to heaven together, but I do believe we may go to jail together," said R. Albert Mohler during a speech to nearly 400 students and faculty in an almost-full Varsity Theater in the Wilkinson Student Center....
Those are just good points that Neil made, they were the exact point set should have been made. Amen, Neil.
there are many bad fruits, to replacement theology, penny,which Mormonism and many a radical groups believe in, the Romish church being another, at least I don't think albert Mohler, has made that mistake.
It was surely more difficult for 1st-century Christians to ‚Äúpractice their faith in the public square‚ÄĚ, yet there's no evidence the Apostles whined about that or moral ‚Äúrevolutions‚ÄĚ in the secular sphere (and ancient Rome, drenched in sex, violence, & corruption, was pretty revolting). Unlike modern Christian ‚Äúleaders‚ÄĚ obsessed by politics, they paid more attention to disfunction *within* the church such as heresy, social abuse, disorderly worship, & immorality. And they didn't go around making friendly speeches to heretics, either.
But that's no fun if you're a denominational big-shot, for one makes intramural enemies that way. It's easier to point fingers outside the camp.
the fruit of Christian Zionism? I'm sure there are those who simply want to share the gospel as did RZach, but there is a political, theological connection between the two groups, and perhaps why you've got pastors paying big bucks to sit with GlenB.
