I found it somewhat vague at times. The thing with LDS compared evangelical Christianity is that we use the same terms, but those terms mean different things to each group. Like with Jesus, the LDS Church will say that Jesus is the Son of God, but do they believe He is co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father? Do they believe that God is one, but in three persons? Then there is the Book of Mormon where is the historical and archeological evidence that backs its claims? Just some random questions that came to mind as I read the article.
Some who commented on an earlier post on the LDS Church encouraged readers of this blog to check out the LDS website, and they also have a website specifically to explain their doctrine. It is helpful to read in their own words what they believe, but I also believe one who is discerning needs to realize that we may use the same lingo, but meanings are not always the same.

Also you can check out James White’s article on the 21 questions over at the Alpha & Omega Ministries website, and Aaron Shafovaloff of Mormonism Research Ministry also gave an analysis of the Fox News article.
