A 2011 national survey recently showed that half of all Americans believe Mormons are Christians. It also showed that 39% of evangelical Christians agreed. This finding has caused many to ask, “Are Mormons Christians?” Is Mormonism the only true church and all of Christianity wrong? Being “Temple worthy” is an important practice in the Mormon tradition, but do promises made in this process stand inconsistent with biblical Christianity? What about Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon Church? How did he receive his revelations and prophecies? In this series, we will address these questions and ask, “What do Mormons really believe?”
About 400 years ago, philosopher David Hume declared that miracles are impossible. They simply do not happen. But according to a poll commissioned by our guest, Lee Strobel, 67% of Christians in America today believe that God still performs miracles today; 15% disagreed, saying God does not perform miracles today. But, surprisingly, 38% responded that they had personally experienced God’s miraculously working in their own lives. We will examine the evidence for miracles in this encouraging 3 program series.
