One comment on “Ed Stetzer–Dealing with this "Mormon Moment": Cults, Truth, and Grace

  1. John A. says:

    According the [url=http://dictionary.cambridge.org]Cambridge Dictionary[/url] a cult is “a religious group, often living together, whose beliefs are considered extreme or strange by many people.” By this definition I would not consider Mormonism to be a cult.

    If we have to put a label on it, I would say Mormons are heretics just like many so called mainline Christians who do not believe that Jesus rose from the dead and other traditional Christian beliefs. For many people, it seems, it is more important how a group makes you feel than what a group believes.
