  • It is a man made religion that caters to all mankids weaknesses. Like eternal marriage, I mean who does not want to be marriaged forever to there spouse and have spirt sex to produce spirit babies in Mormon heaven which is like to 90210 of all of heaven!
    Sounds great right???? Catering to mmankind weaknesses.
    But they are very commited to their families b/c of that.

  • Isn't the name of the chuch pretty self explainatory? The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints?? Christian means belief in Christ..... Come on think this one through. Would you ask if Buddhists believe in Buddha?

  • There are a lot of religions that don't believe Mormons are Christians. I had a friend who went to a Southern Baptist high school. This school taught him that Mormons were not Christians.

    Some religions (evangelicals) believe they are not because Mormons believe that Jesus and God are separate beings. Others quote passages in the Bible that say nothing should be added to the books of the Bible.

    It is debatable. Mormons believe in Christ. But others bring up technicalities.

  • Mormons do believe in the bible and that Jesus was a good man. A great prophet. They don't however believe he was the savior. If for some reason you are interested in the LDS churches please investigate their beliefs completely and don't take anyone here's word for anything. Mormons are some of the most wonderful saintly people i know. They are kind hearted, loving and very well educated. They are giving and and very sweet and organized. I have learned much from my mormon friends. They are not however Christians. They are not generally accepted as Christians by either the Protastant or Catholic churches.

  • "They don't however believe he was the savior."

    You haven't been listening to your Mormon friends very closely. We do believe that Christ is our Savior. Why does it matter if Protastants or Catholics classify Mormons as Christians or not? Do they make all the Christian rules and decisions?

  • OK first. Why the attitude? This can remain friendly and the pp to you was very gracious.

     The LDS Church does not believe in the same Jesus as the bible. For example: My name in Jennifer. Well my neighbors name is also Jennifer. But we are not the same Jennifer. Just because Jesus is in the name does not mean it is the same Jesus. The LDS church definition of Jesus is very different then the Jesus in mainstream Christianity.  Plain and simple.
