At the October 2018 General Conference, Russell M. Nelson–the current president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–explained the reasons why he believes using nicknames and abbreviations for his church and followers are inappropriate. He claims to have been told this directly by God. And by so doing, he has made it next to impossible to reference this church without making a truth claim. MRM’s Eric Johnson takes a closer look at Nelson’s edict and explains if Mormonism Research Ministry will have to change its name. Click here.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced in June 2018 that the church hymnbook will be revised in the next few years. Among other things, the church claims the revision will “fill doctrinal gaps.” And church members are being asked to provide feedback for suggested changes.

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. Click here to see what’s available.
