This is not meant to be disrespectful at all and please don't take it that way. My own opinion is that Mormons believe in Christ and therefore are in fact Christians.
I hear a lot of different views and I am just interested in a random poll on this subject.
And to be honest with you I myself am neither Christian nor Mormon.

I am not sure.

Do not know enough about Mormonism to decide. Do not like the pluralistic marriage thingie, however, that is not main-stream Mormonism from what I DO know.

However, if LDS considered pluralistic marriage with one wife and multiple husbands (particularly if they are good at keeping house) then I would probably convert.

Good points, Luc!

As always, you cut straight through the b***s***, and into the heart of the matter.

Monica.... the name of the Mormon Church is: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Why would the Mormons choose to name their church after Jesus Christ.... if they do not believe in him.... and do not worship him? Why is the Baptist church automatically considered a Christian church when the name of their church is named after the Baptism? Or the Presbyterians? It seems that the only church on earth that displays the full name of Jesus Christ in the name of their church...is always accused of not being a true Christian church.... This is beyond logic and common sense.
If I wanted to learn about the Baptism...I would probably go to the baptist church. If I wanted to learn about the presbytery...I would probably go to the Presbyterian church. However, if I want to learn about Jesus Christ himself....under no circumstance would I ever go to a church named after him. Because, obviously, this would not be a church that teaches about Jesus Christ. See the logic? If they would change their name to a broken down pick-up, that was sitting on the side of the road, they would be accepted as a true Christian church with no questions asked..... we cannot change the name of our church simply because we teach about Jesus Christ....

I only asked for an honest poll. I honestly want to know what Christians believe about this. As I do not attend a Christian church I only know what I see on the news. I want to know how biased or true the views I see portrayed on news show really are.

This is how I see Mormons:
Both Mormons and Moslems:
1. Believe in a "newer" book that is "better" than the bible.
2. Believe in having more than one wife.
You'd think they would see the similarities and celebrate what they have in common.

I agree--if you call yourself a Christian, I accept that you are a Christian.

B. Elijah I am neither pro nor con Mormon Church. As I stated in the op, in my opinion by logic alone Mormons are indeed Christian since they believe in Christ.
I am interested to know if there are Christians that do not believe they are and by what logic do they base it.

Monica... the real reason why the contemporary Christian contend that the Mormon Church is not Christian is simply because they do not understand that the Holy Bible and the "Book of Mormon" are taught together as the true word of God. The Christian ministers contend that when Jesus died on the cross... he was no longer capable of communicating with mankind from that time forward. Therefore, they do not believe that it would be possible for Jesus to have visited many different people, after he resurrected from the dead. They do not believe that it would be possible for Jesus to establish his church in other lands after his resurrection. Therefore, they do not believe that the "Book of Mormon" could possibly be one of these ancient records that recorded his visit to this continent, many centuries ago. They ignore the records of the American Indian when they speak about the great white spirit...or the Holy Spirit....or the bearded one. Or why they refer to their Holy men as priests. Or how it was possible for the American Indian to know that Jesus was killed on a cross and resurrected from the dead in three days. One clay tablet was found in the southwest...that is over a thousand years old that dipicts this story... However, the contemporary Christian ministers refuse to believe this as well....
You can see these artifacts in... Ancient American Magazine....back issue: Christ in America. You can click on back issues and order it for yourself.... I hope this helps...

Monica,
Many Christians posting in the Forum don't consider
other Christians "real" Christians.
What I infer from the posts here
is that Christians only think some one who agrees with
them completely is a "true" Christian.
Attacking other Christians is part of being "Christian" in fact,
if not in fantasy.
And no, some of them certainly don't think Mormons are true
Christians.

Anne.... I have to agree with you almost 100%. I think that some people come on this forum just to start an argument. They don't care about what.... just so they can strike out at somebody....for any reason.. Sometimes, I enjoy the comfrontations....the exchange of ideas....and sometimes the sword fighting takes place. Therefore, I treat people with respect....who treat me with respect. I do not attack someone...unless I am attacked. One exception... there are some people that I know from way back.... I will sometimes say things to them to rustle their feathers. Just for fun....

Good gravy, Marie! One husband is a pain-in-the-hinder as it is. There's a good reason why polyandry is extremely rare! :-0

I would be happy if LDS didn't fight against same sex marriage, let alone a pluralistic marriage with multiple husbands.

Are you saying that you believe that repealing DADT had something to do with bestiality?

I am not asking Mormons to do anything, the problem is what they are DOING. Gays as a group had nothing to do with the persecution of Mormons. Gays want to get married for the same reasons that str8s want to get married.

Was your associating DADT with bestiality deliberate, or will you be correcting your post?

BE: "The answer: the media hates God and everything he represents. They like to pick on the Mormon Church because we are averaging about 1 million converts a year...there are now about 13 million members around the world."

I have never had any indication of the media hating God or Mormonism. There are those of us who find prosthelytizing very offensive, but that has never been indicated in the media as far I have seen or heard.

I think everyone was horrified at the involvement of the Mormon church in proposition 8 in California. The advertising that i saw was pure lies or implications that lead to lies.

I'm confused. If they aren't "Christians", what are they considered then? A completely separate and unrelated group- like Hindus or Druids would be?

Skotos.... really....a church nemed after Jesus Christ....himself is not a Christian church. Granted, we do not consider ourselves among the contemporary Christians. However, we are Christians because we believe in Jesus Christ. The same Jesus that suffered and died on the cross, the same Jesus that resurrected from the dead in three days. The definition of a Christian: they believe in Jesus Christ....
