Reflections on a Mormon / Evangelical Dialogue
John Umland recently attended a dialogue between Robert Millet (Mormon professor at BYU) and Greg Johnson (founder of Standing Together ministries). Now he has posted his reflections: "a convicted civil discourse between an LDS and an evangelical." Here are his concluding thoughts:

Afterwards i stuck around to thank the speakers. i listened to a woman who left a small offshoot of the mormons called the church of Jesus Christ who broke from Smith after his polygamy teaching became public. They recognize the book of Mormon and the Bible only. she still thinks the American Indians are Jews.

Johnson agrees with my both/and view to Temple outreaches, onsite and offsite. and we both agree that the onsite stuff needs to be considerate and not obnoxious. In fact his website describes
one on-site approach.

overall, this was excellent. i think Johnson pointed out significant issues and Millet acknowledged some of them and blew smoke at the same time. it was worth the time and i'm glad i went.
