“Are Mormons Christians?” New Era, November 2016

“Are Mormons Christians?”

Katherine C., Illinois, USA

Members of my seminary class often share missionary experiences. But one time, two months had gone by since anyone shared, so I thought it was time to make a move. I prayed to Heavenly Father, saying that if He would let me have a missionary experience that day at school, I’d do everything in my power to teach others as much about the gospel as I possibly could. The first question came from my locker partner and close friend, Tabitha.

“Are Mormons Christians?” she asked.

“Of course I’m a Christian!” I cheerfully responded, “I believe in Jesus. Did you know that the actual name of my church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?” Then we talked a little more.

Throughout the day it seemed like people flooded me with questions.

The next day, as I related my stories to my seminary class, I knew that I’d have missionary moments as long as I desired them.
