For My Friends Who Question

I've experienced something, in the recent past, that I didn't think I'd actually experience given the wide-spread knowledge of my church.... I've experienced some friends questioning whether I, as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, am a Christian.

There are so many weird things about that line of questioning... first and foremost is the fact that in questioning, they must be overlooking the fact that our Savior's name is within the name of the organization of which I'm a member. I mean, to me, that says a LOT... there are SO many other churches who profess Christianity, but whose church names are named after a man or something else entirely. How can they be Christ's without His name? Anyway... I'm not saying I doubt my friends' Chritianity at all... it's just a general question in my mind.

These women who have questioned me are very strong in their Faith in and of Jesus Christ. It just seems to me that they would feel less inclined to question me about my religion since I live it SO openly... I mean, I talk of Christ, I openly and often praise Him for His work in my life... it seems that they would accept what I say (frequently) as what I believe rather than doubting me because my "religion" goes by the nick-name Mormon.

Anyway... that's my rant for this morning.

My main reason for posting right now is cause I wanted to share some testimonies from some of the leaders of the church to which I belong. These are some Apostles (as in of the 12 Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ on the earth today) as well as our current Latter-Day Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. I bear my testimony that these men are men of God, but MORE. They are called of God to preach the Gospel of CHRIST, to bear witness that Christ lives, to all nations, kindreds, tongues, and peoples at this time and in these days, even these latter-days. I believe this to be true. And I end these, my sayings, in the dear name of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

YOu are, for me, an example of a Christian woman who boldly, openly lives her faith. It is odd that you should be questioned. Must be the nickname.
