I’ve heard the LDS Church and Mormons generally come under condemnation by some for not mentioning Christ more in lessons, talks, books, etc. One person on this blog told me they were going to visit a Mormon church meeting and count how many times Christ was mentioned by name, skeptical that the number would be very great.
My initial reaction to this was that yes, it would be better if Christ were mentioned more. But then I thought, “Wait, isn’t wanting the name of Christ to be mentioned more in church lessons and talks kind of like criticizing your Algebra 2 teacher for not saying the words ‘Algebra 2′ more in class?”
That is, if the content is what Christ taught and less one to Christ, does the frequency with which Christ’s name is mentioned really matter? And I’m not saying it doesn’t, I’m asking a real question here, not making a statement.
