In 2018, the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Russell M. Nelson, gave a talk entitled “the correct name of the church” in which he pleaded with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to call the church by the correct name, and not embrace the nickname that was given to our church long ago. This was a correction that spoke directly to my heart.
In today’s podcast, I’m going to share why both Neil and I feel so passionately about this correction and why we’ve worked really hard to make this change in our conversations both in public and in private settings. What once was a nickname embraced by our church even, “Mormons,” is something we now really try hard to not use anymore so that others will know what we are truly all about.
Whether you’re a member of our church or not, I hope you listen to this episode and find a greater understanding of why this is actually such a big deal to us. There's something about being willing to defend the Savior and being willing to make that subtle correction with gentleness, kindness, and grace. There's a reason everything is done in the name of Jesus Christ – and that's where the power comes from as well as the healing and hope.
We also talk about the promises, blessings, and good things that come from making the effort to restore the correct name of the Lord's church.
