Re: Opinion Nov. 27, 2011 - "Isn't it about honesty and leadership?"
What it means to be a "Christian" is for an individual to believe God and in particular God the Son without adding to or deleting what God has said, what He has revealed in His word, the Bible. To intentionally add to or delete from the Bible is to remove oneself from the fellowship of the Christian community. God needs no help from man to save people from their sins outside of the completed work of what his Son Jesus did on the cross- as described in the Bible. Mormon doctrine recognizes a person referred to as Jesus Christ and who they call the Son of God but they do not admit to his sharing the deity of God as indeed the Jesus of the Bible does. Thus, the Mormon is not a Christian at all, only a Mormon. Mormons want to be perceived as being "Christian" so as to be accepted by the general public and obviously your article, "Isn't it about honesty and leadership" indicates they have fooled the author as well.
A qualified, experienced mature Mormon should be able to be President of the U.S. Likewise an atheist. Being President isn't about religion, it's about governing. And yet, a day is coming soon when the only government will be God and only those who believe him now will share his eternity then. Does that include you?
