Ah, the wheat and the chaff, the sheep and the goats, those on the left and those on the right. These are all descriptions of the sorting process that will take place when Jesus returns to judge the earth on the last day. The separation process will send those who believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh to heaven and those who don’t to hell.
The candidates are being pressed to make a judgment call on whether or not Mitt Romney is a Christian. Herman Cain says, “He’s a Mormon, that much I know,” and Michele Bachmann won’t respond at all. Why are these normally robust, in your face candidates all of a sudden silent about their view of Christianity? Because they would rather win the nomination than stand for what they believe in.
It’s obvious they don’t believe Mormons are Christians because if they thought Romney was a Christian, they would say it. In fact, the biblical definition of Christian is one who is a follower of Christ. Christ said He was God in the flesh. Therefore, you must believe that Jesus is God in order to be a Christian. Mormons, as well as Jehovah’s witnesses, do not hold that belief, nor do they hold to many of what are considered standard Christian beliefs. In the evangelical community, both Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses are considered cults. Of course, neither group considers themselves a cult, but that is not the question being bantered about. The Mormons hold many beliefs that are anathema to Christians.
