Prepare for a shocking announcement!
I am a Christian.
I am a Mormon.
The political news this week has had way too many stories about a Southern Baptist minister saying that Mitt Romney and other Mormons are not Christians.
To that all I have to say is if we are going to get nitpicky about what constitutes a Christian, and go all the way back to the Nicene Creed, then no, according to that document written in the year 325 AD, I am not a Christian. But who are we kidding? Most Protestant religions barely qualify as Christians under this creed they hold so dear when attacking other Christians.
But if we define a Christian as a follower of Christ, as someone who believes and has faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, as someone who each and every Sunday takes upon them the name of Christ as they partake of the Sacrament, then yes, I AM A CHRISTIAN.
