As a mormon, Romney believes that the Garden of Eden is in Missouri. And magic underpants.

There is a big difference between faith and magic.

The Morman Underwear is worn as a sign of faith just as many Christians wear crosses around their neck.

HELL IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

she'owl, sheh&#8209;ole', Hebrew 7585; or she'ol, sheh&#8209;ole'; from Hebrew 7592 (sha'al); hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates :&#8209; grave, hell, pit.

Hell in Christian theology, eternal abode of those damned by God. Souls in hell are led by SATAN and deprived forever of the sight of God. In legend it is a place of fire and brimstone, where the damned undergo physical torment. Islam has a similar hell. In the ancient Jewish Sheol or Tophet, souls wander about unhappily, but Sheol later became much like the Christian hell. The ancient Greeks believed souls went to an underworld called Hades.

How can Christians vote a sectarian mormon, this sect is not recognized by Christianity, it is antichristian, heretical sect of perversed polygamists. What Christians can vote it?
Ron Paul o'k', he is good Christian, but this mormon is no Christian and he is the worst candidate in the race.

I know what sheol is. That's why i know it's not hell. Sorry charlie, all souls go to sheol, damned and rightous. Eternal damnation is not a jewish concept. Ask a jew. Sheol is mistranslated by christians so often it's not even funny. Sheol literally means question. Sheol is the unknown afterlife all souls go to. Eternal damnation is not something the God of the Jews would do. He is supposed to be a merciful God and at some point mercy is shown. Hell is a concept introduced by roman followers of Jesus.

Christians can vote for whomever they want. God gave us free will. But when you try to justify your choice, be prepared for a fire storm.

Karol's right; in the unlikely event of a Romney victory, we'd have a president who was neither a Catholic nor a protestant. Weird.

what is scary is that, in the event of an Obama win, if something should happen to him, JOE BIDEN would be our president....that is enough to make you vote Romney.....

In a statement about the automobile industry Joe Biden said it was the twentieth century last I checked we are living in the twenty first century.

A Christian group is Christian simply because they claim to be. Anyone that believes in Jesus as Savior and the son of God (which is what separates the Muslims who believe Mohamed to have been the last true savior) is Christian. Mormons do believe in Jesus, therefore they are Christians.

In other words Mormons believe in Christ therefore they are Christian.

As far as someone really active in Christianity goes, only a Mormon would accept a Mormon as a Christian. The pope would say that only Catholics are true Christians, Protestant leaders would say that only Protestants are true Christians. This has always been the case and will always be.

Joseph Smith was a prophet like Noah or Moses was a Prophet. So what?
How does believing in prophets make a person not a Christian?

If Joseph Smith truly believed in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, he was a saved man at death and a Christian for believing.

Salvation does not require a person to belong to a certain group or church.

The President of the USA is not required to belong to a certain group or church.

Being a Christian means having a belief in Jesus Christ as the Savior - there is no doubt and no possible room for debate, yes Mormons are Christians.

Anyone telling you otherwise is a fool, a hypocrite, and acting in an unChristian manner.

Ask yourself...What is a Christian? Is it someone who has the same concept as you do of what Christ is like or is it someone who believes with all their heart that Jesus IS the Christ and tries to live their life as Jesus taught us to do.

I believe it is the latter definition, and under that definition, Mormon's are definitely Christians!

Yes, Mormonism, Catholicism, Baptists, etc. are all Christian, just different denominations.

Just as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all denominations of Abrahamic religion.

Not my opinion, just fact.
