With all the political mud-slinging and social unrest going on, sometimes religion gets mixed up with it too.
I was reading in Time or Newsweek or something (can't remember which. We get both at my office) and there was an article about Glenn Beck and his rally about returning to honor.
This rally had nothing to do with politics or religion.
And yet there was a comment in the article from a religious leader who said he "still" didn't believe Mormons were Christians.
Um, excuse me?
I don't mean to sound angry or antagonistic, but every time someone tries to tell me what I do or don't believe, I get a little...
Especially when it has to do with something as sacred as my belief in Christ.
I am a Christian.
Jesus Christ is my Savior.
My greatest Friend.
and so many other things.
What right does anyone have to say that the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints don't believe in Christ as their Redeemer?
It would be like telling me I don't believe in my love for my earthly family.
Or in my devotion to my unborn child.
Or that my heart is beating.
I know most, if not all of you who read this blog are Christians as well, so I'm likely preaching to the choir.
But that's fine. I'll say this anyway.
I believe in God as my Father. I believe in Jesus Christ, his Son, as my Savior. I believe in the Holy Spirit as my constant companion.
And I will strive every day to be more like Christ.
So to those who may still doubt where this "Mormon" girl's loyalties lie? Don't ever, ever insult me by trying to tell me I am not a Christian.
