Pastor Bill Cummins was correct in pointing out that the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints has existed for about 170 years.

Pastor Cummins then stated that Biblical Christianity was over 2000 years old. The first people referred to as "Christianos" were a few Hellenistic Syrians around 45 C.E. The name didn't stick until the beginning of the 2nd Century C.E. That makes Christianity a bit more than 1900 years old at the most.

A question: What is "Biblical Christianity?" There are many hundreds of denominations with different beliefs and practices. Can they all be Biblically correct? Is any part of what is known as Christianity really Biblically pure? Maybe a local pastor would write a letter to the News-Sentinel explaining why his church is correct and all others are in error.
