I regularly write for the US Reformed Christian newspaper Christian Renewal. They have just published this latest from me offering the thoughts of a non-US citizen and voter suggesting how Christians should view a potential Mormon candidate. Here's a taster:
The issue is whether Mormonism is simply a variant type of Christianity. The salvation issues taught by the LDS shows plainly it is anything but a variant, being neither “mainstream” nor “Christian”. That does not mean that Mitt Romney would not make a good president, nor would handle the US economy better than Obama, nor that he would be anything other than a good family man, husband and father. The larger point is that the November election is not going to be between a Christian Obama v a pseudo-Christian Romney. The former will run on his presidential record; while he still fails to answer serious questions about the nature of his professed Christian faith (and there is much evidence that it is lacking). The latter, will run largely on his past good economic and business record; while a professing member of cultic Mormonism.However US CR readers or US Christians more generally vote in November, it is important not to allow the world to believe that Mitt Romney is a Christian; or that Mormonism is anything less than a fully-fledged cult with core tenets of faith a million miles away from mainstream, historic and biblical Christianity.
