Christmas Stories – 25 Days of Christmas – Dec. 22

Silent Night, Holy Night

As told by Walter Cronkite with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

The 1900’s, the final century of the recent millennium, brought unprecedented possibilities and promise.

The children of these hundred years would see more improvement in the human condition than ever before in the world’s history.

Advances in medicine, science, and industry would all but eradicate disease, extend human life, open a dialogue among the peoples of the earth, and lift them into the vast reaches of space.

But these hardly seemed like possibilities as the Christmas of 1914 drew near.

Differences between Mormons and Evangelicals

I came across this great article talking about the differences between Mormons and Evangelicals. I highly recommend reading it. It can be found here: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700201923/LDS-Christianity-Differences-that-matter.html.

Also – included in the article is a nice graphic showing some of the major differences. Link

ps I believe that both groups are Christians. Both believe in Jesus Christ and that He is our Savior and Redeemer. We might have differences, but we actually have a lot more in common (esp from a values standpoint) than we realize.

With his permission I have posted his letter here: Baptist Pastor
