*** If you are not familiar with the Christianity Today story and my involvement with it or are new to my blog, it might be best to drop down to the Saturday, June 02, 2007 entry and read up from there. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment. ***
Here is the latest on the CT controversy. It seems as if our voices have been heard and CT has admitted its mistake. A couple of hours after I sent my second e-mail to Madison Trammel, I received this response from her.
Thanks for writing back. Your points are well-taken — indeed, upon further reflection, I agree with you that the article’s foray into Mormon doctrine was an unnecessary, and ultimately unhelpful, diversion from the article’s main point. Please check back at our website in the next week or so. I’m hoping we’ll be able to pull together a good response article that outlines Mormon-Christian theological differences.
I don’t know about you, but I see this as a victory. I am encouraged that they are concerned about the issue and plan on making a distinction between Mormonism and Christianity in a future article. I eagerly await the piece and will pray that any confusion the original article produced will be cleared up. PRAISE THE LORD!
