What if . . . the National Association of Evangelicals (or National Council of Churches, etc.) declared that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was both Christian and sufficiently orthodox? Would you really want this? You'd be labeled Christian and would probably see criticisms and protests die down. However, would that make it harder to highlight modern revelation and doctrinal differences? Would there be a greater danger of the faithful leaving the church due to interfaith marriages? Could the church eventually be swallowed up by the larger faith tradition that embraced it? Thoughts?
Growing up, people often asked me if I was homosexual. Sometimes people were quite cruel because I was and am rather "feminine." In High School, I had very low self-esteem and felt worthless. Now that I'm older, I have learned to accept myself for who I am and have long since forgiven those who bullied me. But I still see others mistreat those who are different from what is "normal." Here is a discussion my wife and I had about the subject. https://youtu.be/OLowASQRU0E What are your thoughts on the subject? If this is too controversial (which I don't think it is), I respect your decision to take it down. However, I think honest and open dialogue is needed about the topic.
