    I think it's self explanatory. Here, I'll type slower, the ones who follow the word of Christ. Do you understand now?

    No. I don't. He is basically stating that episcopalians are not true christians. So I asked specifically... which denominations are true christians. Then you jumped into the fray with a non-answer. Wanna actually answer it? Or do you wanna keep playing coy and dodging this rather specific question with obtuse generalities?

    We can go one by one if you like...

    Are Baptists true christians?

    There really is no other answer. "Christ" is the root word of "Christian". How can you call yourself a Christian if you do not follow the word of Christ? Serious question.

    Certainly their leadership is not promoting the teachings of Christ by allowing gay marriage and gay church leaders. I cannot know the heart of every Episcopalian. I am sure a great many don't subscribe to what their leadership has done.

    So, how can you follow Christ without following Christ?

    Do you think Mormons are Christians?

    No, they are not. Joseph Smith was a proven charlatan, this is irrefutable.

    And yet, the LDS believe in Christ and probably follow his teachings more literally than any other sect or religion that call themselves Christians. But I think one of the main differences is that the LDS don't worship his death but instead worship his life and his teachings.

    It's not the same Christ. Do you know anything about the Mormons?

    The answer is going to be that Jesus Himself said nothing about homosexuality. Ignore His familiarity with Scripture and also ignore what occasioned His first miracle. And try to ignore those who are trying to trap you into a defensive position.
