Accuracy Of Polls a Question In Itself

 
Polls is still like adding in arithmetic, just  leave out some numbers and you get a wrong answer. As simple as that,
      “Born again Christians” or the “Evangelicals” are defined for a start as the professing Christian  people who said they have made a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, they are married to Him,  that is still important in their life today and who also indicated they believe that when they die they will go to Heaven because they had confessed their sins and had accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. They generally are abstainers from Alcohol, Smoking, drunkenness, drugs, adultery, sex outside of marriage . ” This includes their believing, saying the Bible is the word of God, asserting that the Bible is accurate in all that it teaches; and describing God as the all-knowing, all-powerful, perfect deity who created the universe and still rules it today saying their faith is very important in their life today; believing they have a personal responsibility to share their religious beliefs about Christ with non-Christians; Believing they must help all the poor and needy persons too, believing that Satan exists; believing that eternal salvation is possible only through grace, not works; believing that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth; . Being classified as an evangelical is not dependent upon church attendance or the denominational affiliation of the church attended supposedly..”  Charismatics and Pentecostals are part of this group even if some falsely do not want to accept them. Catholics and Mormons, Jehovah witnesses are   not a part of this grouping.

   

“Notional Christians “are those who consider themselves to be Christian but do not meet the not born again criteria  such as  Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah witnesses they really are not Christians, mere pretenders, imposters, foolish virgins according to the evangelicals.

A poll a sample of only one thousand supposedly born again Christians is meaningless as it already has a built in error of 70 percent.

  Conservatives are Notional Christians , Evangelical Born again Christians, and non Christians, non liberal, non democrats

  1. Why aren’t Mormons Christian? If anyone follows the commandments, not to drink, smoke or do drugs it is Mormons. If anyone has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, it is Mormons. Our church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He is the head of our church. We are the only church with both priesthoods as in the days of Moses. Can you name the two priesthoods? Can you name the priesthood of Jesus Christ? Can you name the greater priesthood? We are the only church with additional books by both Moses and Abraham but we are not Christian? Yes, we don’t buy that Jesus is both son and Father. We believe Elohim is Father God and Jesus Christ is the Son of God. It is the trinity that is unbiblical!

    Are you telling me when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane and he was praying to his father he was actually praying to himself? Wouldn’t that make him slightly retarded? Why would you pray to yourself during your greatest struggle? I have never gotten down on my knees, folded my hands and said, “Oh Dena, I come to you in prayer that you may ease my troubled soul.” If I am in the one in trouble how is praying to myself going to accomplish anything? Next, Jesus specifically prayed for this cup to be taken from him if it be his will, otherwise he would do his father’s will. Now if he is Father all he had to do is, “Hold on, I am the Father, never mind-crucifixion is out-I’m not doing it! It be my will! Woo hoo!” Jesus went through with not because it necessarily pleased him to do so but because he loved us and Heavenly Father so much he was willing to do what HIS FATHER asked of him.

    Mormons are not the pretenders, we understand the Atonement. We understand Christ a lot more clearly than so called evangelicals. We do home teaching, visiting teaching, we make sure the Gospel is taught to all of our members. We live the Word of Wisdom, we are dedicated to Christ and Heavenly Father and know the Holy Spirit will only stay with us if we are pure. We are Christians, we carry his name proudly. And I am proud to have the fully restored Gospel as it was in the time of Moses, Abraham and Christ back on the planet and in my life today. Mormons believe in the primitive organization of the church and live their life accordingly. Don’t knock Mormons until you know the truth about who we are.

  2. >>Are you telling me when Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane and he was praying to his father he was actually praying to himself? Wouldn’t that make Jesus slightly retarded?

    you have been condemned by your own words..

    (John 10:30 KJV) I and my Father are one. Jesus

    (John 10:31 KJV) Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus

    (John 10:32 KJV) Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

    (John 10:33 KJV) The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

    instead of reading your heretic , blasphemous books, read the Bible.. you will get a kick out what it really says too.

    Mormons are Christian.. Hey that is a joke.. they firstly believe a polygamous God had real sex with a wife, and had two sons, the devil and Jesus.. and Jesus Christ is not God.. they don’t believe the Bible was written by God, not the whole new testament.. pretenders, imposters, but they are not Christians, they are anti Christ’s cult, sect as millions of evangelicals believe and do see my past pages on Mormons..

    I never met a Mormon who lived a real Christian life in decades, my next door neighbor is a Mormon, I serviced loads of computers to Mormons as well.. still they lied, stole, got drunk too.. not a Christian life… I cannot see any difference between them and my non Christian friends, neighbors still too in reality.

    do see https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/neither-give-place-to-the-devil/

    Both Catholics and Protestants have long taken a dim view of various aspects of Mormon theology.. “Mormon beliefs diverge widely from historic Christian orthodoxy. The Book of Mormon, which is Mormonism’s principal source for its claim to new revelation and a new prophet, lacks credibility. And the Jesus proclaimed by Joseph Smith and his followers is different in significant ways from the Jesus of the New Testament: Smith’s Jesus is a God distinct from God the Father; he was once merely a man and not God; he is of the same species as human beings; and his being and acts are limited by coeternal matter and laws. The intent of this essay is not to say that individual Mormons will be barred from sitting with Abraham and the saints at the marriage supper of the Lamb. We are saved by a merciful Trinity, not by our theology. But the distinguished scholar of Mormonism Jan Shipps was only partly right when she wrote that Mormonism is a departure from the existing Christian tradition as much as early Christianity was a departure from Judaism. For if Christianity is a shoot grafted onto the olive tree of Judaism, Mormonism as it stands cannot be successfully grafted onto either.” Gerald R. McDermott, an Episcopal priest who is a professor of religion at Roanoke College:

    “But evangelicals are reluctant to vote for a Mormon. Historically, evangelicals and Mormons have demonized each other. Evangelicals consider the Church of Latter-day Saints to be a cult and typically think Mormons are not real Christians.Evangelicals accuse Mormons of adding new revelation (the Book of Mormon) to the Bible. They think Mormons teach that humans are saved by good works rather than by Jesus Christ, and that humans are of the same species as Jesus and can someday attain his status. In addition, evangelicals say, Mormons reject key Christian doctrines such as the Trinity and creatio ex nihilo (God creating the world out of nothing).” http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2007/mayweb-only/122-42.0.html

    ““Here is the bottom line. As an Evangelical Christian – a Christian who holds to the ‘traditional Christian orthodoxy’ of the Church – I do not believe that Mormonism leads to salvation,” wrote Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, on Wednesday evening.

    “To the contrary, I believe that it is a false gospel that, however sincere and kind its adherents may be, leads to eternal death rather than to eternal life,” he stated.

    Mohler’s response is part of an ongoing “blog dialogue” sponsored by the Web site Beliefnet.com. Since June 28, the evangelical scholar and prominent Mormon science-fiction writer Orson Scott Card have been debating whether Mormons can be considered Christians.

    During the course of the debate, Card focused on whether Mormons are moral people, good citizens and why Mormon presidential candidate Mitt Romney should be supported by evangelicals. He emphasized that Mormons share many of the same values as evangelical Christians and believe Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation.

    However, Mohler noted that whether a Mormon has similar moral values to evangelical Christians is beside the point because Beliefnet.com had asked whether Mormons can be considered Christians based on traditional Christian orthodoxy.

    “It appears that we are not really discussing the same question,” noted Mohler in his latest blog response.

    “The debate has never been about whether Mormons are good Americans or would make good neighbors,” he wrote.

    “I dare say that most American Evangelicals and traditional Roman Catholics would find more in common with Mormons in terms of child-rearing, sexual morality, the protection of marriage and family, and a host of other issues, than they would with liberal Catholics or liberal Protestants,” acknowledged Mohler.

    But Mormonism from its beginning has rejected traditional Christian orthodoxy, which is part of the core Mormon identity, pointed out the highly-respected theologian. The subtitle of The Book of Mormon is “Another Testament of Jesus Christ.”

    “A ‘testament,’ that is, other than that accepted by the historic Christian churches,” Mohler highlighted.

    Mohler – who is often seen on “Larry King Live” and other popular news show representing the Christian voice – concluded that Mormonism is not just another form of Christianity and is incompatible with “traditional Christian orthodoxy.””
