There have been a few news articles lately that highlight Mormonism as it relates to other Christian denominations. People often ask what we believe about Christ, or how we view the Godhead, or whether or not we are Christians. We believe in Christ, we talk of Christ, we hope in Christ, we prophecy of Christ, and we know that Christ is our Savior.
One great source for finding out what the Mormon church is really all about is LDS.org. On LDS.org you will have instant and easy access to all of our doctrines. You can easily and quickly search through our scriptures, our general conference records, and a variety of other church materials. You can even download PDF versions of many LDS church books and magazines, all of which will give you insights to what we read, study, and believe.
Of particular interest on the subject of our belief in Christ is this article from LDS.org. The article gives a wonderfully complete overview of our faith in Christ, that he lived on the earth, suffered and died for our sins, and will come again. Here is a brief excerpt from the article, which I recommend reading in full:
We solemnly testify that His life, which is central to all human history, neither began in Bethlehem nor concluded on Calvary. He was the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten Son in the flesh, the Redeemer of the world.
Even with all of the evidence of our faith and total dependance on Christ in Mormonism, nothing will convince a person about our Christianity. The key, if you truly want to understand about our deep dedication to Jesus Christ, is to ask God in the name of Christ. Prayer is the only way to gain a testimony of the truth because it comes from our Father, who gives to all equally, without holding anything back.
As you look around for information and answers and Mormonism, and about Christianity and Mormonism, please keep a prayer in your heart. I add my testimony to those you might come across: that Christ lives, and that He loves us with an infinite love. He is patient, and personally knows each of us. He has suffered for our sins so that we might not, if we will turn our hearts to him and rely wholy on his merits and mercies. Christ has set an example for us in baptism, and in the Sacrament of His Last Supper. He has set an example in all things.
If you have more questions about mormonism, or mormonism as it relates to the rest of Christianity, please feel free to ask them here on this blog, or visit mormon.org to chat with a mormon missionary who can help answer your questions. If you have a friend who is mormon, that’s also a great way to learn about Mormonism!
