Good to see non-LDS Christians coming together with the LDS on some common grounds.

The "War of Words and Tumult of Opinions" is still alive in many circles,
but this is really a Big Step Forward to see a more "civil" and respectful
attitude developing. Billy Graham's son, Franklin, was interviewed on
Piers Morgan's CNN show the other night, and he reflected a similar feeling
about accepting Mitt and Mormons in general in a more positive way, but Franklin
Graham came short of referring to Mormons as fellow "Christians". Piers Morgan
tried real hard to get Franklin to agree that Mormons are equal Christians, but
Franklin refused to go that far.

However, this is a Big step in the Right direction. The "War of Words and Tumult of
Opinions" has been around for a long time, even before Joseph Smith. In Europe before
the USA was even born, Religious Intolerance cost many their very lives. Especially those
who wanted the see the Bible available in the "English" language.

To Scientist: Again you're mixing what happens at the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. All of that takes place then. If you even cared to read more carefully you would find that ALL the wicked will be destroyed at that time that only the MOST righteous will be left alive on earth. It doesn't say that only members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will be alive but the most righteous which includes everyone from all different religions on earth. In the beginning there will be still the same amount of religions on earth but as millineium becomes the standard then and only then will there be only one government subject to Jesus Christ. There will still be a lot of missionary work going on. The thing is the government will be after the organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Christ WILL be on the earth and will be its KING over all people.

In time only one Church will be left, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is the Christ.

Christian is as Christian does. If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence convict you?

Google "An Open Letter to Billy Graham Regarding Mitt Romney and Mormonism." It addresses thoughts on how some Christians have allowed their patriotism to become an idol worshiped in Jesus' name. It sends a message that Christians must focus on perceived threats to their earthly kingdom more so than on threats to the Kingdom of God. Billy Graham removed language from its website calling Mormonism a cult to AVOID controversy? By doing this, they jumped right into it.

That the extermination of nonbelievers will happen in the future makes no difference.

It is still a horrible worldview.
