I am shaking my head about this, but I feel it needs to be written for no other reason but for clarification purposes. I hope that you all will either get a good chuckle about this, or say to yourself, “Oh man! I had no idea. I’m glad I read this.” 🙂
I saw one of my mannnnnnny doctors a while back and she said something to me at the end of my appointment that was really surprising. She knows I attend this church and in our conversation she said, “Now be sure to tell them you go to the Church of the Latter-day Saints.”
Now, she didn’t say “The Mormon Church”; which I could have easily corrected her, respectfully and lovingly, by telling her the name of the church is: “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”. (For some reason, people seem to gloss over the Jesus Christ part! Why? I don’t get it.) Even NPR‘s “Fact Checker” didn’t do any research as I have heard it stated on air the same way my chiropractor mentioned it.
I was just so taken aback that I didn’t get a chance to say to her, “You accidentally left out the most important part: Jesus Christ.” On all the logos, missionaries badges, etc., the name of Jesus Christ is BOLD because it’s THE MOST IMPORTANT PART.
I know I am not here to change the world. I can only do what I can do on this tiny part of the Internet. I just want YOU to know that I believe and worship in Jesus Christ. He leads the church I attend.
