I think he is more educated and attuned to Christ's Spirit than most internet posters who claim to know what denomination is more Christain than the other -based on his most recent actions and interviews.

Oh, so you're judging me again.

Your previous expressions of forgiveness and love are appearing less likey to be true with every jab you take — especially considering the Mormon faith believes it's the "more Christian" faith.

So if I agreed with your faith, which disagrees with the Bible yet calls itself Christian, I'd be in tune with the spirit? The same faith that denied African Americans such as Sharpton the priesthood role until 1978?

Al's ok with it and so are these Black LDS Christians.

Is this what you think Jesus would want you to do, to spend your time on earth trying to pick apart the Mormon faith?

And by what authority do you have to do this ?

Did Christ tell you to do this?

Because it was a supposed "revelation" from God that didn't allow African Americans to be in that position. This is inconsistent with the nature of God revealed in the Bible. It reeks of discrimination.

The Bible teaches to take a stand for truth, and Christ himself didn't tolerate those who misrepresented God.

Unless God told you this personally, I think it's one person's opinion against another.

diamond, the Bible is God's word. Through it, he reveals to all of his followers to defend truth. That said, I do feel called to discuss differences with Mormons I come across and I've had many good conversations.

I prefer Al Sharpton's understanding of the Bible and Christianity to yours.


best,

This was a interesting read. I think Sharpton did very well, as he kept asking Hitchens to quit debating the bible, and debate whether God exists.

What i don't understand is, and maybe this wasn't the whole debate, but why were the gospels written 40 years after JC's death? Seems like a long time to get that message out.

As for the argument about dispelling God, and why are people inclined to be "good" or have "morals". I don't think it's God, but rather Biology.

While some will look towards a higher power that gives us this control, I just think from a survival level, it doesn't make any sense. If any one species were to start killing it's own, how would this species survive?

Definately a big stain on the Mormon religion, but what religion doesn't have stains? We'll look back 20, 30 years from now and shake our heads at how the church treated homosexuals.

You're right, but keep in mind not all Christians or churches have treated homosexuals poorly. There are many Christians who may disagree with it from their perspective, but they do it respectfully and don't stand for discrimination.
This was faith sanctioned discrimination.

Very few.

I see no difference. The majority of Christian denominations are doing the same exact thing right now.
