When: Thursday, December 6, 2012
When First Baptist Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress said last year that Mormonism is a cult, there was a firestorm of media coverage and debate on the topic. Dr. Blomberg will address this topic, sharing what the official Mormon teaching is and where he sees the church is currently.
Dr. Blomberg will include insights from discussions he has had with BYU professors and LDS church leaders over the last twenty years, as well as how the media has misrepresented the Mormon Church.
