Encouraging Update from Christianity Today
Kudos to Keith Walker from Evidence Ministries!

After Christianity Today posted a troubling article on Mormonism, Keith wrote a letter to the editor which was also posted on his blog: "Christianity Today Misrepresents Mormonism." His letter led to a response by Madison Trammel, Associate Editor of CT, and Keith humbly replied to her e-mail: "Christianity Today Responds To My E-mail."

Why do I bother posting all of this background material? Because Trammel responded again with an encouraging e-mail: "Christianity Today Admits Mistake In 'Mitt's Mormonism and the "Evangelical Vote"' Article." Here is her message:

Keith,

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.

Sincerely,
Madison


Thank you Madison and CT! I look forward to this response article and agree with Keith as he concludes:
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!
