Mitt Romney and Mormonism

Pages In This Entry:

  1. Mitt Romney and Mormonism

Even long before Mitt Romney officially joined the race for the White House, he faced questions about his faith

Romney is an active member of the Mormon Church - a religious movement widely considered by mainstream Christians to be, theologically, a cult of Christianity. [Note the differences between theological and sociological definitions of the term 'cult']

After all, Mormon theology - on subjects ranging from Jesus Christ to Salvation, and from the veracity of the Bible to whether or not God keeps changing his mind (he does according to Mormonism) - is vastly different from that of Christianity.

Evangelical Christians form a large voting block in the US, and in one recent poll a large percentage of people said they would not even consider voting for a Mormon candidate.

Mormons, meanwhile, insist that they are Christians - often pointing to the official name of their church, "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" as proof. They - and others - usually do not take into account that Mormons and Christians use the same terminology, but with vastly different meanings.

We have a large collection of research resources on Mormonism, and we invite Mormons, Christians and others alike to study them.

Meanwhile, - a Christian ministry - has produced an informative video titled, "Mitt Romney and Mormonism."

The video - which focuses more on Mormonism that on Mitt Romney - uses an interview Romney had on the Charlie Rose show as a springboard for conversation that includes Christian apologists Bill McKeever, Timothy Oliver, Matt Slick and others.
