I’m featuring some selected new Christian blogs from 2010, proceeding in random order with precedence given to ones that were submitted earlier.
I’ve never involved myself much in counter-cult apologetics, but I appreciate those who do. Jamie Pellew is one of them. He grew up surrounded by Mormonism, and since last May he has been authoring a blog called Answering Mormons. His December 31 post asks, “Why Respond to Mormon Claims?” He answers,
[W]e see that we as apologists do not defend Christianity, as if Christianity cannot withstand the attacks leveled against it, but that those who are attacking Christianity, choose public forums, to level their attacks against Christianity. So if Christians do not provide a defense against the claims these groups make, they could potentially deceive a large number of people.
Mormonism is indeed deceptive, especially in its presenting itself (as it often does) as a version of Christianity. Its vocabulary is indeed largely Christian, but that is part of its deceit; for it attaches meanings to those words that are wildly different from what true Christianity. Pellew draws from a wide range of sources—former Mormons, Christian experts on cults, and his own knowledge of Mormonism and Scripture—to unmask its teachings and display its errors. He does an excellent job of it, and I heartily recommend his blog to those who may be asking questions, or those who may also be called on to be answering Mormons.
