Years ago it seemed the Mormons (Latter Day Saints), desired to be seen as different from biblical Christianity. But in the last several years there has been a paradigm shift of sorts, and now Mormons want to be known as Christians. Why is that?
And for those of you who aren’t sure, you may be asking, “isn’t Mormonism just another denomination of Christianity with a different twist?” We’ve got some excellent research and resources linked up below today to help you compare Mormon teachings to biblical Christianity. Joining us on today’s program is someone who knows Mormonism from the inside out. James K Walker is the president of Watchman Fellowship, and a former fourth-generation Mormon himself.
Just a few weeks ago the Pope met with evangelicals and Mormons together: What do Rick Warren, Russell Moore, Muslims, Mormons and the Pope have in common?
Watchman Fellowship is an apologetics and discernment ministry that provides research and evaluation on cults, the occult, and new religious movements from a traditional Christian perspective. Rev. Walker is directly involved with evangelism and apologetics in a variety of related fields including Mormonism, the New Age Movement, Armstrongism, Satanism and the occult.
He speaks at churches and universities throughout the world, and evangelizes to the lost at Jehovah’s Witnesses’ conventions, Mormon temple openings and New Age events.
Because of his background and love for those lost in the cults and alternative religions, James Walker has invested his life into reaching them with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. His desire is to work together with local churches to evangelize those in the cults and to bring them into healthy, Bible-centered churches.
