I believe that anybody who serves Jesus Christ are Christians. All religions that serve Jesus are christians. It's just the way that we serve him. There are different ways. Every church has a distinct way of serving Jesus Christ. Like the mormans still believe in some of the old ways from the old testament of the bible. The catholics believe that they still need to confess their sins to the priest. Baptist, Pentacost are almost the same but I believe there are some differences, I just don't know what they are. For me, it doesn't matter. I love everyone no matter what religion.

I don't think that there is any TRUE Jesus chruch. But, yes mormons are Christians, an american born christianity, but christian nonetheless. I personally am agnostic, but I've taken a couple religion classes and we had to study LDS quite a bit.

PAGAN ALERT!!! Mormons are not Christians,furthermore, Joseph Smith Cheated on his wife multiple times and was charged with adultery. He is a male Witch, and he was very good at what he did. When he was shot, he was found with the talesin of Jupiter on him. Witches love these things. It is one thing to be a Witch, it is another to be a Christian. the bible has blatantly condemned Witches and seers.

Let me guess: You were there when Joseph Smith was shot and saw that talesin yourself ? If not then I would say you have no leg to stand on. Its simply not true that Jospeh Smith was a witch. There are sooo many people making up things about our church. It's a pure lie. George W Bush made up lies about weapons of massdestruction for example because he didn't like Saddam Hussein. (Well I don't like him either but I am not making stories up). So don't accuse others just because you read something from people that are against the Mormons. Of course they won't write what a good guy Jospeh Smith was.

Spiritually speaking,Church is Jesus Christ's body,in the world there are more than 25000 denominations are there, they are not actual church.Church is universal,it includes people who are truly born again from all walks of life.To be born again you have to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour for the remission of your sins.In true terms the man who accepted Jesus Christ can only be called Christians, others are namely Christians.

I believe you are right....the only way to be a Christian is to be born again, and make Jesus your personal saviour.

Lonnie, As you know from my comment on your article on gather, I am a member of The Church Of JESUS CHRIST Of Latter Day Saints. I am a very strong "MORMON". Yes, we are Christians. How are you discussions going? I remember when I first took the discussions. It was many years ago. I did not join the church at that time. It was about five years later when I joined the church. I love it. I have found peace in my life since I joined. I still have trials and many of them but I am better at dealing with them now. I am impressed that you typed the Church's name correctly, with the name of JESUS CHRIST in all capital letters. You are learning our ways. Good luck to you. If I can be of any help, just let me know.

First of all, Yes, in some extent Mormons are Christians, the main problem is they do not have the whole Truth that most Christian churches teach, and they tend to put their trust in their Prophet as their God and authority, than Jesus. Mormons are Good people, but I just cannot understand how they can believe some of the ways that they do. When you research the Bible and its teachings and beliefs in there, it should be Jesus you trust and turn too in time of trouble more than man. Yes, they are very Good people, just a little lost. As for the True Church, I beg to differ there, but until a person seeks God for himself and comes to an understanding of who he is, and has done for us, and can do for you, there is nothing anyone can do. And no Church is better than any other as in Religion, it is the personal Relationship that matters most.

Thanks for your comment, I didnt mean to say that one church/religion was better than the rest, I was just saying that those of the LDS believe that their church is the only true one :)

You really might want to research your information a little more straight from the source. Mormons do belive in Jesus Christ. They even pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Yes, there is a living prophet but there always has been except when the people got so evil that they killed them all. I am not telling you this to start an argument. I am telling you this because it is Fact. I am a member of The Church Of JESUS CHRIST Of Latter Day Saints or Mormons as we are commonly called.

What the above poster has said is true, they are christian, however LDS people believe that the LDS (Mormon) church is the ONE true church on this earth.

True, however I have never had another denomination ask me to tell them that all other religions are false, and say that theirs is the only true one. Most other religions are just happy to have you.

Just wanted you guys to know that Lonnie passed away in 2007 from a stroke. I had him as a friend on Facebook and his son let me know about his passing. He was a very sweet man. May God bless.

All that believe in Jesus Christ are christians. That what it means to be one. Do not know much more about mormorns tham the tabloid things that are portrayed on tv or in papers. About the bigamy, about their attire etc.
