Making a Distinction in the Mormon Church

February 15, 1996

"When the Laws of God and Man Converge" (Feb. 5) was well written but contained a significant error. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (called Mormon in your article) has Jesus Christ as its central focus, and should not be considered a "non-Christian faith" as your article referred to it.

The centrality of Jesus Christ in the lives of the more than 9 million members of the church should leave no doubt in the minds of your readers and others that it is indeed a Christian church.

A better term would be "non-Protestant." The distinction is very important and should be understood by your writers.
