Mormons are Christians

Mormons are Christians. And anyone who says differently is either ignorant about Mormons or ignorant about what the definition of Christian is.

Definitions from dictionary.com, webster-dictionary.com:
a person who believes in Jesus Christ; adherent of Christianity.

a person who exemplifies in his or her life the teachings of Christ: He died like a true Christian.

one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Does this definition say anything about the trinity or how much revelation God has sent to Earth or anything that Mormons do differently from other Christian churches? No. Let me assure you that every Sunday at church Christ is discussed … in every lesson Christ is brought up no matter what the topic. The head of our Church is Christ. People are claiming that we are not Christian because we have the Book of Mormon. Does anyone even read the whole title: The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. We teach from both the Bible and Book of Mormon. Is it really so hard to believe that God and and His Son would teach more people than just those in Europe between creation and what … 1500 or 1600s? Is it so insane to believe that Christ would come to Earth in our day and age? Why would there be no more prophets? Does that make sense that God and Christ would just stop all communication and say, “yeah, just go with what we gave the people hundreds of years ago.” And how are we less Christian by saying Christ is his own being and so is Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost. I don’t get how that lessens our Christianity at all. And because we think Christ will come to Earth again … oh heck we must totally not be Christians then. How could we believe He is still around and still cares and still plans on coming again. I currently read an article that discussed this question and it just royally ticked me off. It referred to our church having “loopiness”. I’m just so sick of people who have to tear down other religions. IT bugs me so much. It bugs me if a fellow Mormon does it to someone else. Gosh, our church name is not even really Mormon it is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! We don’t have to agree. And I am totally cool with people saying, “I believe this is different and your way doesn’t make sense to me.” That’s fine. There are items in other peoples’ religions that don’t make sense to me. But I don’t try to tell people what they are or aren’t. Example: I don’t say to a Catholic … you aren’t Christian because you’re not from one of the Protestant churches that formed. That’s so stupid. Catholics are totally Christian. I also don’t say to a Seventh Day Adventist … you aren’t Christian cause you honor the Sabbath on a Saturday. Again stupid. Seventh Day Adventists are totally Christian! Don’t tell me I’m not a Chrisitan. Ask me if I am. And I will tell you. Yes, a million times over. MY entire belief system revolves around Jesus Christ. Christ is my savior, my friend and most importantly my brother. And I love him so much. And I want so much to be more like him. And I love his teachings. I am a follower of Christ. And my parents are. And the people in my ward are. And in my stake. And in my entire religion. My prophet, Thomas S. Monson is one of the greatest followers of great I know. So, this whole debate about Mormons being Christians is just silly. And honestly, why? Why is it even happening? How is it hurting other religions to admit we are Christian. I’m not somehow offended or hurt by saying Baptists or Presbyterians are Christian. It doesn’t effect my belief system at all. So people just get over it and stop trying to tell other people what they believe in! Urgh!
