On this great day when Rick Santorum left the race and Mitt for all practical purposes clinched the nomination (much more on that later), I fear that I stirred up a bit of trouble over at our Patheos site. I found myself disagreeing with Rick Warren’s response to Jake Tapper’s question, “Are Mormons Christian?” Warren’s response centered around the Trinity, which I thought was a bit of a dodge. I respond with three questions of my own. Here’s the first:
1. Is Warren’s statement correct as a defining characteristic of Christian belief? In other words, is the creedal belief in the Trinity the dividing line between Christian and non-Christian?
To read the other two (and my attempt at responses), head on over to Patheos.
