If this subject has appeared once, it's appeared a thousand times all across the country, as the Mormon PR machine is busy at work seizing the moment to try and persuade the public that Mormonism is Christianity. The regular ploy is to make several peripheral comments refuting what are assumed to be typical claims about Mormonism or to dispute what the Mormon Church wants the public to assume are unfair stereotypes, and that by simply contacting the Mormons either through the missionary program or by visiting their website the record will be set straight and everyone will finally conclude that the Mormons are Christians, and that the Mormon Church is a fair representation of biblical, historic Christianity. What the PR machine continues to do, though, is leave out mention that neither the missionaries, nor the website, deal with anything of substance when it comes to explaining why, if Mormonism is Christian, the main doctrines of Mormonism are anti-biblical, if not anti-Christian.
For example, Mormons tell everyone that they love God, Jesus, and the Bible, which would be common qualities of biblical, historic Christians. What the Mormons regularly leave out of such declarations is the fact that the God and Jesus of Mormonism is not the God and Jesus of the Bible, and that the Bible itself has been deemed in Mormonism to be corrupted because it is either full of errors or "missing many plain and precious truths." When confronted with the reality that the Mormon God is an exalted man who lives on a planet somewhere in the distant universe which orbits a star called Kolob, or that the Jesus of Mormonism is actually the "spirit brother" of Satan, the typical response to avoid having to account for such eccentric, if not blasphemies, is that there are differences between Mormonism and traditional Christians, but those differences are minor in the grand scheme of things. After all, look at what Mormons do to help everyone. That's what really makes a person a Christian; it's what the person does, not what he believes.
Such sleight of hand is only convincing to the biblically naive and illiterate. For if one rejects, denies, or contradicts what the Bible has to say about not only God and Jesus, but the Bible itself, then how can the final product be Christian? The answer is, it cannot. Yet that is what the Mormons are placing their confidence, biblical illiteracy and an ignorance of Christian historical doctrine. Otherwise, they know that their campaign will go absolutely nowhere.
Therefore, buyer beware when considering just what it is that the Mormon Church is up to, because this is not about providing clarity, but about proselytization and preying upon the ignorant and the naive. Mormonism is not Christian, nor can it be, simply because its doctrines are totally at variance with what the Bible and Christianity have taught for the past two thousand years. It is as the pastor from Dallas recently labled, a "cult," and needs to be avoided.
