The Story Behind the Council of Nicaeaconstantine

Mention the Council of Nicaea in public and you are bound to get a number of negative responses from Mormons. Do skeptics have reason to doubt the results of the Council of Nicaea? Or is there more to the story than most critics guess?

(Short) Answers to the 10 Most Common Responses I Get at Mormon Temple Open House Outreachesdsc00076

(Note: MRM has attended 31 of these events since 1993!) The vast majority of those who come are LDS. With that as a background, here are 10 of the most common comments we receive, with a short response to each. (Also listen to Bill and Eric discuss this topic in a two-part Viewpoint on Mormonism series.) Click here.

Seventy Tad Callister gave a 2014 talk where he utilized most of the points from the unattributed “17 Points of the True Church.” Should the modern church be characterized by living human prophets and apostles, specifically named after Christ? And is the “Church” an organization or is it a living organism comprised of God’s people? MRM’s Eric Johnson does a line-by-line response to Callister’s talk.

How important is the Trinity in Christianity?

trinityTo that question, we believe that accepting the Trinity is a cornerstone of the biblical Christian church. Unfortunately, Mormonism’s leaders have not only denied this belief but even mocked it. So just what is the Trinity? Is the teaching even understandable? Check out our new page that offers articles, YouTube videos, blogs, and podcasts. If the Trinity is true, it needs to be defended by the Christian who has questioning friends and neighbors.

 The Gospel Topics Essays–Introduction and Links
