By this all men will know you are my disciples, if incorporate "Jesus Christ" in the name of your organization

Of all the various and sundry tactics employed by mormons to argue that they are Christians, there is none more silly than the "We have the name of Jesus Christ right there in the name of our church, we must be Christians!". There were no organized churches in the time of Christ and the ministry of the apostles. The idea that putting the name of Jesus Christ into your organizational name makes you a legitimate is foreign to Scripture. Refusing to worship Jesus Christ as Lord and God is not negated by putting His name on your organization, in fact misusing His name might just bring even greater condemnation.

"You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. (Exo 20:7)
