MEDIA ADVISORY, May 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- Mormons are not Christians, according to Hank Hanegraaff, head of the "Christian Research Institute" and host of "The Bible Answer Man" radio show. He says: "They take our language but they pour their meanings into the words...Mormons do not believe that the Bible is the infallible repository for redemptive revelation. They believe that the book of Mormon is the most correct of any book on earth and it's the keystone to their religion and we therefore have a sharp difference in terms of what our authority is....
"There are more and more Christians who are saying that the gap between Christianity and Mormonism can easily be bridged with rhetoric. [They say] the divide, well it's not wide at all in their view. And I don't think that they're taking seriously what Mormonism teaches. Now we'd all be very happy if Mormonism recanted their heresy particularly with respect the nature of God and the person and work of Jesus Christ. But they haven't done that. What they're trying to do is bridge the gap with rhetoric and it is a gap that is so wide and deep it can never be papered over with rhetoric."
Mr. Hanegraaff made these remarks in an early May 2007 interview with John Lofton, Editor of TheAmericanView.com and a Recovering Republican. This entire interview may be heard by going to TheAmericanView.com and clicking on Program 104. Mr. Lofton can be reached at JLof@aol.com; phone 410-760-8885.
