Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints went to Harvard University Tuesday with a message about LDS doctrine and teachings.
"What brings me to you today is not a message of reformation but of restoration," he said, "the restoration of that church Christ established by his hand in the meridian of time and which he has reestablished by his hand in this present time."
Speaking to students at Harvard Law School in historic Langdell Hall, Elder Holland talked about the Christianity of Latter-day Saints, indicating "we are not considered 'Christian' by some, I suppose because we are not fourth-century Christians, we are not Athanasian Christians, we are not creedal Christians of the brand that arose hundreds of years after Christ."
"No," he continued, "when we speak of 'restored Christianity' we speak of the church as it was (before) great councils were called to debate and anguish over what it was they really believed."
