Convention of Statesmen


Elder M. Russell Ballard Explains

LDS Public Affairs, the Public Affairs department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released a series of YouTube videos answering seven questions. Elder M. Russell Ballard, an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ addresses each of these questions which have become more frequently asked since Mitt Romney tossed his hat in the presidential ring:

1. Do Mormons worship Jesus Christ in their services?

2. How are Mormon beliefs similar to other Christians?

3. Is there scientific proof authenticating the Book of Mormon?

4. Are Mormons Christian?

5. Why do people say Mormonism is a cult?

6. How do Mormon beliefs differ from other Christians?

7. Does the Church support political candidates?

What a wonderful thing to live in this day of technology. To have a living Apostle of the Lord answer questions so that the world may see what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is all about. I love being alive!

Update on Alvin: His surgery ended up being 6 1/2 hours long. 3 1/2 hours longer than it was supposed to be. But they managed to get every portion of all three parathyroid glands and shave the fourth down to a normal level. His calcium levels, after a couple of tries finally reduced to normal. Hallelujah! It was a long scary day, but he's doing well. He's in IMC (Intermediate Care) right now, but hopefully will be moved to a normal floor today. Fingers crossed.
