Do you consider Mormonism to be Christian?

Postby Ceannairceach » Fri Mar 28, 2014 9:21 pm

Simple enough question, I'd think. Do you think that Mormonism, as is practiced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is Christian?

My family and I converted to Mormonism when I was around eight or so, and I was baptized that following year as a member of the LDS Church. In Sunday school, I was taught about Jesus Christ, God, the Gospels as well as the Book of Mormon, and generally about the religion. It is somewhat hazy, because I was so young and ended up leaving the Church a short time later, but during that time, I was taught that Mormons were Christians. That is an understanding I still have today.

But what does everyone else believe? Are Mormons, by any stretch of the term, Christian? If so, why? If not, why not?

I think that if you worship Christ as your savior, then you are Christian. Everything else is just details.

I do, but only on a preliminary "Until someone who knows better tells me different or I learn about Mormonism myself" basis.

They worship Christ, so yeah.
Your nation is like a son. What it does right is your merit, as well as what it does wrong is your fault. When you praise it, be lucid and avoid exaggeration. Praising it too much can make it indolent. On the other hand, when you criticize it, be harsh, but do not ridicule it. Do your best to improve it, not through derision or disdain, but through good examples and dedication.

The Buddhist Mormons I know of are all hardcore vegetarians. They tried going vegan, but failed. But they are hardcore vegetarians nevertheless.

Exactly.

Which is why we need another inquisition and have the Spaniards lead it because nobody would expect it.

I believe so. I know a few Mormons actually (or at least people who think they know what Mormonism is)
I like TGs. About anything, especially history, Germany, the UK, and the Royal Marines. You may call me Fence, since that's all anybody calls me.

Mormonism, along with most other protestant sects, could be considered different sects of christianity, in the same way Monothelitism, Monophysitism, Messalianism, and Bogomilism could be considered different denominations.

But they're not. They're classified as heresies....
