What’s in a name or, in this case, a nickname? When it comes to nicknames of the Church, such as the “LDS Church,” the “Mormon Church,” or the “Church of the Latter-day Saints,” the most important thing in those names is the absence of the Savior’s name. To remove the Lord’s name from the Lord’s Church is a major victory for Satan. When we discard the Savior’s name, we are subtly disregarding all that Jesus Christ did for us—even His Atonement.
I wonder what President Nelson thinks of President Brigham Young's membership certificate, seen below. And who's Church he believes Brigham was received into since this was the official name of the Church at the time.
I guess we can state with confidence what President Nelson thinks since the certificate contains one of the actual examples used by him in his conference address.
