After much pondering, Gary Smith favored us with:
So, until you get your eating habit under control, you aren't following
the D&C, and this means you aren't a true Christian because you aren't
following the prophets? I definitely wouldn't be considered one under
your definition, either, since there are many things I struggle with and
do not follow perfectly.

> A Christian, by my definition, is one who follows Christ. And since it is impossible to follow Christ without following those whom Christ has sent to lead, namely President Hinckley, all nonmembers and many members do not qualify as true Christians. --JWR
Here you are committing two errors in your logic. First, you are taking my position to an extreme that I never intended. Second, you are setting up a straw man in doing so by assuming something that I never said. I never said that a person had to follow the prophets perfectly to be a true Christian.

When a person rejects the authorized messengers whom the Savior has sent, he is rejecting the Savior. It is the same. Who are these authorize messengers? I speak of our missionaries, prophets and apostles.

"A liberal in the Church is merely one who does not have
a testimony." --President Harold B. Lee
All my opinions are tentative pending further data. --JWR
