I Am a Mormon and a Christian

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Governor Rick Perry is an evangelical Christian. Mitt Romney is Mormon. Rev. Dr. Jeffress backs Perry because of his standing as a Christian, which is all well and good -- except that he calls Mormonism a cult and suggests that Mormons are not Christians. Tina from Little Tots/Big Ideas sets him straight.

I am a Mormon and I am a Christian. For those of you who may not know, Mormon is a nickname; it is not the correct name of my church. The proper title is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. How much clearer can it be that we are Christian?

I am Christian in every sense of the word. I believe Jesus Christ is my Savior. I believe the only way to return to Heavenly Father is through Christ. I believe I can only be saved through my Savior.

Will the backing of Dr Jeffress hurt Perry's campaign or make no difference at all?
