Throughout my many travels I'm frequently asked by persons who don't know much about Mormons, Are Mormons Christians? With a smile I always give the same answer, "Yes we are, very much so."

Mormons quite often are referred to as Latter-Day Saint Christians due to the official name of the church which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. But it's more than just a name, Latter-Day Saints strive daily to live the life of Christ and abide by his teachings and those of his apostles.

The Bible tells us the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. (Acts 11:26) The word Christian means “a follower of Christ" but the word disciple means “student” or “pupil.” Hence a true Christian is not someone who simply says they believe in Christ but rather someone who ardently follows and studies the Savior their entire lives. Mormons do exactly that, therefore we are very much Christian in the truest sense of the word.

The blog list is done

Well, the work is complete.....sort of.

I now have several blogs listed to the left. These are blogs that have passed the initial "worthiness" test but they are going to have to stay on their toes.

Like most people, I don't come to the Internet and visit an LDS inspired website to have my testimony torn down, I come to have it lifted up. So, the list at the left will be a "living" list I guess you could say. When I find a worthy blog I will add it, if a blog lets go of the iron rod I will drop it.

Some might be saying that I sound like I am full of myself. Well, I'm not, I'm just saying that I am saddened by some of the cantankerous blogs that are out there.

So I am going to do my best to keep an up-to-date blog that is always uplifting and interesting. I am also going to keep it pleasing to the eye, (some of these blogs were so bizarre looking I had a hard time adjusting my eyes) and I will keep the information easy to understand. Nobody will need to come to my blog with a Masters in Religious Theological Socio-Economic Criteria-ism.

So come check my blog out as often as you would like and I will do my best to always have something interesting and enjoyable to look at.

  1. I predict you will cut a blog or two from the list if you continue to monitor them. I hope it will not be www.millennialstar.org. :)
