Sometimes it gets a little frustrating when everyone feels entitled to define your religion for you. There has been a lot of talk about whether Mormons are Christians or not, whether we are a cult or not, and why it actually matters. As you can probably imagine, I have a few thoughts on the matter. But, I feel like it would be a waste of my time to write my own thoughts on this because I just read an article that I think explains it so wonderfully and already includes everything I was thinking (except Jeffers, the author, enjoys politics and I am quite the opposite :)).
I really enjoyed this post because I felt like it explored all the different sides of what it means to be a Christian and how The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints fits into that. For me, Christ is the center of everything I do. He is why I strive to be a good wife, mother, neighbor, citizen and human. If you have any questions about Mormons’ stance on Christ (or even if you don’t and you just want a good read about what it means to be a Christian) I highly recommend reading this article from our friends over at mormonperspectives.com.
