When they hear what we really believe, most people will instantly recognize that members of the Church of Jesus Christ who are baptized in His name and seek to follow Him and revere Him as the only source of grace and salvation must be Christian, regardless of other doctrinal differences. SALVATION IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND HIS SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS ON THE CROSS, NOT BY FOLLOWING THE TEACHINGS IN THE KORAN or ALLAH, a false god. A Latter-day Saint is free to adopt a “cafeteria” style approach to teachings found in other religious and philosophical systems, only with the proviso that such teachings do not contradict or discredit established LDS doctrine.

Calvary Chapel was founded in 1965 by a former Foursquare Gospel minister, Chuck Smith, in Costa Mesa, CA. Not only are there tens of thousands of Mormons living in this so-called "everlasting covenant" today, but the justification for it is still holy scripture to all Mormons. Members of the LDS Church receive Patriarchal blessings which declare the recipient's lineage within one of the tribes of Israel. I used biblical verses appropriately in this debate (historically), while you're verses are strictly arbitrary (theological), as according to the pattern of this debate in which i'm claiming that the Bible is not the ultimate factor in the meaning of being a Christian.

There is also no way of estimating accurately the total number of people involved in these sectarian movements in the United States. After all, if there *is* a positive correlation, then that means it should go both ways. Term papers should be done in MS-Word or similar format (Wordperfect, RTf, PDF) and may be sent to the lecturer at any time. To establish doctrine and to understand the biblical text, Latter-day Saints turn to living prophets and to additional books of scripture—the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.

Subject: Re: Can any sect be the pinnacle of revelation? But while I have long suspected, based on anecdotal and qualitative research, that Mahdism was and still is endemic in the Islamic world, I was nonetheless taken aback by Pew’s quantitative data which clearly shows the breadth and depth of such belief: However, in Mahdism the Mahdi only returns for Twelver Shi`is; for Sunnis, the Mahdi has yet to step onto the historical stage (despite the plethora of mutamahdis, or “false Mahdis,” who have declared themselves over the centuries.) This has been my academic specialty, upon which I wrote my doctoral dissertation and first book, Holiest Wars, as well as many articles; I also maintain a website following Mahdism. http://hnn.us/articles/mahdism-and-sectarianism-and-superstition-rises-islamic-world Pinhas Inbari - an analyst on the Palestinian issue for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

A third group of men are called the First and Second Councils of the Seventy. To truly believe in and trust God means to believe in His Word, and all Scripture is inspired by God, which means it comes from Him (2 Timothy 3:16). For Mormons, salvation is to live eternally as a family in the celestial kingdom. Does it have the primary effect of promoting any religious beliefs? One critic scoffed that dispensationalists "devised an elaborate system of mental watertight compartments. Christ fashions this body by communicating Himself to each member and by supplying to them the Spirit of Grace in an effectual, tangible manner….
