I watched a discussion on Fox News. Joel Osteen, the celebrity preacher, was asked about Mitt Romney, who as some know, belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, otherwise known as the Mormons.
Yes, said Joel Osteen, in so much as Mitt Romney believes that Jesus is the Christ, he is a Christian, and accepted as a brother in Christ. Hallelujah!
A further segment showed that Mitt Romney was a Bishop at the Church of Latter Day Saints since 1980s, a rank equal to that of Pastor.
I got baptised at the Church here in Ilford in January this year.
To me, the most impressive aspect is that Joseph F. Smith received the first vision of our Heavenly Father and Christ in an orchard in Wayne County, New York, in 1820, at the age of fourteen, and thereafter he devoted his short life to preaching the gospel according to Christ together with a supplementary text, the Book of Mormons, a testimony translated from the Golden Plates through direct inspiration of God.
This timely intervention probably saved America from much strife, and the Church of Latter Day Saints, which has grown in number of churches and temples throughout the world to God's glory, has young missionaries who devote so much of their time to share the Gospel with people in all countries.
In China, more and more people are turning to the Christian creed, knowning that even Chairman Mao believed in a Heavenly Authority, having Halls of Prayer to pray for good harvests, just like his predecessors, the Chinese emperors, used to believe in God and pray for good harvest and wisdom.
South Korea has about 75,000 Christian missionaries. If and when North Korea opens up to the world, maybe they too will allow missionaries to come and share the Gospel with them.
