Mormons DO NOT Buy Into the Nicene Creed

Evangelical Warren Cole Smith made waves with his article, "A Vote for Romney Is a Vote for the LDS Church." In an interview with Joanna Brooks on Religion Dispatches entitled, "Mormons & Romney Presidency “Dangerous” According to Evangelical Author: A Conversation with Warren Smith" Smith calls The L.D.S. Church "dangerous" because our beliefs are false and anything false is dangerous. He says we are dangerous because we do not embrace the Nicene Creed.
The historic view of Christianity is that the essential views of the Christian faith—the views affirmed in the Nicene Creed—both Catholics and Christians affirm those essentials.
He is right. Mormons do not consider the Nicene Creed to be Biblical. If other Christians embrace non-Biblical doctrines, that is their business.

Mormons will never embrace anything non-Biblical.

  1. 1. That guy's definition of 'Christian' is ridiculous.
    2. Almost no Christians can explain the Nicene Creed correctly. Mormons arguably could accept the Nicene creed depending on how you define 'substance'
    3. Mormons embrace all sorts of stuff that's non-biblical. That's what continuing revelation is for.

    My two cents.
