Historically, Redteuxis right........only the Roman Catholic Church can trace itself back to Christ. Look and see who the Early Church Fathers were and the facts around them. Research who actually compiled the Bible as we know it today--it was the Catholic Church that decided on and compiled the Canon of Sacred Scripture. The canon of both the Old (the Jewish Scriptures) and the New (Christian Scriptures) was defined in a council of the Church of Rome under Pope Damasusin 374 and again at the African councils of Hippo in 393 and Carthage in 397. Protestant bibles have 7 fewer Old Testament books--you can research why:-)

You're going to get so many answers on this, but I will tell you what I believe. I'm LDS (Mormon). We believe that our church is organized exactly as Christ organized things when he was on the earth. When he died and later the apostles all died, much information and truth was lost. We believe that we now have that restored gospel. So for us, that would make us the most true to the central teachings of Christianity.
Please check out LDS.org or come ask questions here at Cafemom in the LDS MOMS group if you would like to know more and understand how this came about.

Mormons are not Christian because they believe Satan and Jesus were brothers--begotten through physical sex from whom they consider "father".......they do not believe that there is only one god, but only one god of this earth. They believe that Jesus was a man who became glorified through his life and thus became a god. They also believe that the men will also become gods if they follow all of the precepts of their church. And they do all of the genealogy so that they can have people attached to them and those people will then become--basically--their servants when they become little gods of their own world. So technically they are not Christian because Christians believe in ONE God who came to earth in Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all of our sins.

There is so much wrong in the answer above me that I'm not going to even clarify it all. Mormons DO believe that there is ONE God and we do believe that Jesus died for all of our sins. The name of our Church is actually THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS.
Our whole church centers around Jesus, how can we not be Christian?
This wasn't a put the Mormons down post. The OP asked a question. I answered what I believed. Why do you feel the need to trash somoene elses religion? And if you're gonna....at least get your facts straight!
