Raised Catholic, Mormon convert, born again Christian, author Vincent DiGirolamo presents new perspectives on the common ground between Latter-day Saints and Evangelical Christians that sheds new light on shared Christian beliefs and principles of truth.
“All Mormons, Evangelicals, Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists and many other traditional, non-traditional, orthodox religions who believe in Christ are Christians. Why? Because their fundamental belief in Christ and their practice of moral principles, values, and gospel tenets, gives them hope in the promise of salvation through Christ, a personal witness of His grace, and experience in His ways.
The common ground is the beliefs, principles and values they share, not in the way that they are interpreted or practiced, nor their origins, but in the manifestation of the fruits they bear and the manner of men they become through living those principles which are true.”
The author takes a new and refreshing, principled-centered approach bridging the Mormon-Evangelical divide by listing beliefs shared by Latter-day Saints and the rest of the Christian world, while looking forward to the day when all of God’s children come together in the unity of the faith.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists;
and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints,
for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,
unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
