Just some quick notes of caution and clarification about the posts I’m making here about the Mormon Articles of Faith compared to the Lutheran Augsburg Confession Articles of Faith.
- All comments are moderated. That means that not all comments will be allowed through. If you don’t like that, you don’t have to be reading here. I will try to be fair in what I allow through. I’ll be attempting to keep this civil, but honest from my perspective. I make no apologies about that.
- I fully expect to be challenged, and challenged hard. Mormons are used to defending their faith in a way that is quite like no other religious group. They have endured tremendous persecution on account of their beliefs, and much of it at the hands of Christians. They have learned to defend the faith, and do it pretty effectively.
- To that end, there have also been divisions erected by some Mormons. Already I’ve noticed language like “creedal Christians vs. biblical Christians” and apostate Christians directed my way.
- I am a Lutheran, and I would call myself an orthodox Lutheran of the ELCA persuasion. I am not a Mormon scholar. I’m looking at the Mormon Articles of Faith. I’m not looking beyond this.
