I wanted to comment on one of your answers:
Why would you state that Mormons are not Christians when they are?
Mormons founded their church organization, and basic belief
structure, exactly as the church was when Jesus walked the
earth, and what Catholics seem to see as the Trinity, Mormons
believe is the GodHead with God, Jesus, and the
Holy Ghost forming that GodHead. When you read the Holy Bible
on this subject, it's true that it could be seen to be true
from both points of view. I see that one person said that 95%
of the Catholic/Protestant people define Christianity as the Roman Catholic Church does, and it seems Mike agrees.
I'd be surprised if that is true!
I believe that being a Christian is defined in the Holy Bible,
and not by any one denomination!
When looking at it from the Holy Bible's point of view, it's
clear that Mormons fit into this category in spite of what
other denominations claim!
What it comes down to is this:
Anyone who calls himself Christian
and does his best to follow Jesus Christ and keep God Commandments,
deserves to be identified as Christian.
Any denomination who debates this is not very Christian in
nature or, at the very least, has a lot to learn about Christian
It is clear that the general knowledge about the Mormon church
is seriously lacking, and though there is a lot more to it
said — fundamentally, she is spot on!
Anyone who claims to know something about the Mormon church
and calls it the Mormon Church is displaying their
ignorance!, though I am referring to it this way for clear communication purposes.
Our church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints in order to signify Jesus as the head of
I don't profess to know to much about Catholics, but I assume
you believe your Pope guides your church in much the same way
we believe our Prophet guides ours, that is According
to guidance received by them, from Our Heavenly Father, Jesus
Christ, and the Holy Ghost.
Oh, and by the way, the Jehovah Witnesses and the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are two very different religions! The quote that lumps them together just
shows that the person who replied to the original question doesn't know as much about
them as he thinks!
Being from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
myself, I believe we are Christians, not as defined by any one denomination, but
as defined in the Scriptures! Our church is set up just as the early
Christian church was, and we believe in the same fundamental
things; if we are not Christian, then all the modern Christian
