Bennett's statement: The more I studied, the more convinced I became that Mormonism was not a Christian faith.

No one with a working brain could possibly come to this conclusion after studying Mormonism for any length of time. But Bennett is reporting to us what his thoughts were. We simply can't disagree, no matter how bizarre it is.

We Mormons talk about Jesus all the time. We conduct every meeting in his name, with a prayer to the Father in the name of Jesus at the start, and another at the end. We take the Lord's Supper weekly. We worship on Sunday like most other Christians. We study the Bible for 50% of our curriculum. We raise our children to believe in him (what more sure sign could there be?) We hang pictures of Him, and not much else, in our chapels and Temples. We hang pictures of Him in our homes like he was a family member. We certainly act as if Christ were our master; everyone knows that the Mormons will be there to help in a disaster, in their yellow shirts, before FEMA arrives, and the same is true on small scale as well as large. Any other church that does half these things is classified as Christian without hesitation.

The reason people claim we are not Christians is because we are the REAL Christians, and this conflicts with the status quo of the wicked world. The real Christians of the first century were villified, thrown to the lions, driven into deserts, and their books burned, because they went against the status quo of the wicked world.
If he really thought this, he was outrageously incorrect. If he's remodeling his report of what he thought back then, he's bein' a liar. Just sayin'



I was not raised in a Mormon family. When my mother was pregnant with me, she came home one afternoon and collapsed on the couch. She just could not face cooking dinner for her family who would be coming home from school and work soon. Then she smelled something delicious. She went into the kitchen and discovered, in the oven, a casserole warming. Who put that there? We didn't lock our doors in those days. She inquired diligently but none of her friends would admit to doing it.

Years later, she learned who dunnit. It was the Mormon lady that lived down the street. She had done this compassionate service without seeking recognition whatsoever - didn't even get her pan back. Now THAT'S Christianity - exhibiting the pure, selfless love that Christ has for every one of us.
