It's funny to me that there is a new debate between evangelical leaders with Mormon leaders. This is strange, because in the past evangelicals have NOT been too fond about Mormons, specifically their claims that Joseph Smith and his made up book of mormon is on par with the bible.
What do I think?
I don't think that Mormons are christians. However....I'm just an idiot with a blog.
Robert Millet would do things differently if he were carefully strategizing how fellow Mormons could best pursue interfaith contacts.
"I probably wouldn't have started with evangelicals," said the Brigham Young University (BYU) professor, considering the antagonism between the two groups since Mormonism's beginnings. "If we can have more civil and respectful relations with evangelicals, we can do it with anyone."
Not many years ago, evangelicals would have deemed substantive contact with Mormonism equally improbable. Yet since 2000, small scholarly teams of Mormons led by Millet and evangelical teams led by Fuller Theological Seminary president Richard Mouw have managed to hold 17 intense, closed-door dialogue sessions.
