  Are They Chrustian???

Sometime ago some young nicely dressed men stopped by the house. They introduced themselves as elder which was kind if humorous. Both looked like they were not out of high school. They identified themselves as members if the Church if Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, mormons in other words. Now they did not come right out and say this. It took some goading on my part to get them to admit this. The young men kept insisting that they believed in Jesus. They said they were Christian.

Ok. This us a forum and I would like to pose the question. Are mormons Christian? Are they believers in the person and work of Jesus Christ? I believe this question is going to have greater relevance as Mit Romney, a mormon, will surely get the Republican nomination. Be said in an interview sometime ago he believed Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Ok, do mormons really believe this?

Glenn Beck, a news commentator claims to be a born again Mormon. What is that? Does this make him a Christian? He also claims to read the Bible.

I have always understood mormons to be a cult. But now we are being led to believe mormonism is just an offshoot of Christianity.

I lay this before the forum not to have useless coversation. But to realize the nest president could be a mormon. So does he or any other person from that faith have the right to call themselves Christians? Do we regard then as brothers and sisters?

How does the forum respond?

Not Christian. Not brothers and sisters in Christ. Yes, Mormonism is a cult.

Greetings bearmaster

The simple answer to your question is no they are not Christians. They believe in another JESUS, one of their own making but not the one in the Bible. If you really want to understand the teachings there are some great books that go into the Mormon teachings. While the Mormons themselves will tell you that they believe in JESUS, once you spend real time sharing with them it becomes clear real fast that they do not follow Biblical truth so they are in need of our prayers.

As far as the possibility of Mitt Romney being the next president I have nothing to contribute on that front. After much prayer and conviction from the LORD I do not take part in elections so I don't really have any insights to share on that topic.

God Bless

But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse! -Galatians 1:8-9



I have a bible by my front door with a bookmark on this scripture for this exact purpose. If you get an honest mormon all you have to do is ask them one question:

Can I get to heaven if I reject the teachings of Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon?

They will usually sidestep the question (they are taught how to avoid answering your question directly), but just tell them something to the effect of "can you just answer the question, it's yes OR no, it's a simple question".

When the person says 'no you cannot make it to heaven' read them Galatians 1:8 and 9, explain to them that this verse was so important the Paul repeated himself to make a point. Then ask them if the book of mormon was gospel that the apostles preached, it was not, therefore it must be rejected because it accursed (and they are too because they are preaching it).

At this point they will probably be gone but if said in a loving spirit perhaps the word will be sown and germinate in their heart? It has that kind of power!

Praise His name!

Are Mormons Christian?

This is a tricky question and not easy to answer. There could be several variables to consider.

I see the Mormons as like any other so called denominational 'Christian' church. They're ranked up there with the best of them. You don't hear too much about their "other" book, but they do have it and they do say they believe that Jesus is the Son of God (the devils do too).

But let me ask this question, what difference is there in any of the fundamental Christian Churches that we know of today and their creeds that they push on the people of God and put weights on them, are they any better? I see no difference between the Mormon and them. Jesus said that if anyone offends these little ones it would be better if a millstone be tied around his neck and be cast into the sea. I know fundamental churches that do that all the time, everyday, I would like to ask, are they Christian?.

With that, I salute the Mormons for their zeal. However, their zeal is not unto righteousness by faith but righteousness by good works and therefore, like many of the fundamental churches that litter North America who say in word but do what is against grace are unChristian.

 Re:

Bro, Go visit a Mormon church. Your doubts will be cleared up quickly as to the cultic nature of the organization.

The clever speech and Bible quotes disappear with testimonies of the wonder of the book of Mormon.

Better yet, just go to lds.org and look through their online magazine.

 Re:

Scripture is very clear on the fact that there is but one God. God himself leaves no question that he alone is God and there has, nor ever will be another. I understand Mormans believe that God was once as we are and evolved into what he is today. I understand that if God was once a man then there must have been a higher power to have created him and the planet he lived upon as a man and as an evolving being. I guess that means that Mormons believe in evolution of the highest order as well as polytheism. That being the case it would only make sense that there should be a Mormon version of the bible were God calls himself the great I AM NOW. Millions of gods.....I think we can safely say this is not the same God a Christian worships.

 Re: Are They Chrustian???

The answer to your question is No, they are not Christians.

And to Approved they are not a "Denominational Christianity" unlike the others, they believe there are many Gods and that we become gods when we die (if we are good mormon boys and girls). They believe in Polytheism and that God the Father came to earth and had sex with Virgin Mary to conceive Jesus Christ the Son. That is not Christianity even in its most perverted state. They also believe that Satan or Lucifer and Jesus are brothers who fought the destiny of the race of man.

They believe black people are cursed because they are really the fallen angels that didn't choose a side and so have darker skin.

They operate on a works based salvation working your way to become a god. that Christ Jesus was just a regular man who worked his way up to god status.

Joseph Smith (the founder) was a con man and was widely known for telling stories. He also had a very strong drinking problem. Joseph Smith claims to have found golden tablets that contained the book of Mormon it was written in hebrew which Joseph Smith had absolutely ZERO training to translate, shortly after the book of mormon came about the golden tablets were lost to never be found.

Joseph Smith claimed the Native Americans were actually Israelites but through genetics we find they aren't even close to matching.

Mormons are NOT Christians, not even an offshoot or denomination. They are believing a lie upon a lie.

Hope that answers your question.
