Rick Warren: Evangelicals’ ‘Sticking Point’ – Mormons ‘Don’t Believe in the Historic Doctrine of the Trinity’

RICK WARREN: Well, the key sticking point for evangelicals and actually for many is the issue of the Trinity,” the evangelical pastor explained. “Orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, Protestant Christians, evangelical Christians and Pentecostal Christians all believe in the Trinity; that’s the historic doctrine of the church, that God is three-in-one. Not three gods; one God in Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mormonism denies that. That’s a sticking point for a lot of Catholic Christians, evangelical Christians, Pentecostal Christians, because they don’t — they don’t believe that. Now they’ll use the same terminology, but they don’t believe in the historic doctrine of the Trinity,” Warren added. “And people have tried to make it other issues. But that’s really one of the fundamental differences.

    Memo to Rick: NO ONE GIVES A RAT’S ASS, RICK.

    Well, maybe a few mouth-breathing biblethumpers care about this mythology and the Mormons seem to be hung up on it, but, aside from them, serious people don’t care.

    Mitt is so fabricated. his strategies are so immature. he constantly counteracts obama and anyone else and puts regular folks down. he is just a spineless rich guy who states whatever he thinks he

    That doesn’t seem to bother fundamentalists in Kansas! Either they don’t know enough about it, or getting a republican in, ANY republican, that they don’t think it is important.
    If he wins and starts a Mormon theocracy they will find out it was important.
    GOP people deny racism hotly, but it’s pretty evident that they are.

    Quite right Pam, you certainly don’t want a Mormon theocracy. Best stick to the Christian/Muslim in the Whitehouse, hey?
