"Who is Standing Together Standing With?"
While I have been somewhat critical of Greg Johnson and his Standing Together (ST) ministry, I appreciate a clarification Johnson brings out in ST's latest e-newsletter. In the article "Who is Standing Together Standing With?", he writes:

Occasionally, I am asked by individuals if Standing Together is an organization that “Stands Together” with Mormonism as a theological system that is compatible with historic, biblical orthodox Christianity. When asked this question, I realize that our efforts to seek spiritual transformation in Utah and my personal ministry efforts to engage Mormonism in a dialogue about the theological issues that divide us is at the heart of the matter. As we launch this new e-news letter in an attempt to communicate more often with friends and partners of this ministry, I thought it would be wise to begin with a reaffirmation that Standing Together is an evangelical ministry that is seeking to “Stand Together” with other evangelical ministries here in Utah and beyond for spiritual transformation here in our area. So, is Standing Together standing with Mormonism? No, we are “Standing Together” with other evangelicals while seeking to reach out in love and Christian civility to our LDS friends and neighbors. Remember, as we express oneness, Jesus tells us that the “world will believe that the Father has sent the Son.”


I pray that all evangelicals will stand together in faithfully proclaiming the true gospel of grace to the Mormon people, doing so with gentleness and reverence.
