Darn it... I was so happy when I found this website initially, only to find out that Mormons aren't seen as Christians by the people here. If anyone is interested, here's a website that shows Bible references that support LDS doctrine: http://www.moroni10.com/Mormon/Bible_References.html.

Laurie Rogers Trlak, neither have I, and I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life.

Well then if it is from the Book of Mormon, I am sure you can quote your source ( I am chuckling because in the Book of Mormon, there is no source) you are simply parroting what you have heard others say. As far as the original quote being "equal Gods" That is something that I have never, ever been uttered in church, mentioned by any of the church leaders, nor is it stated in the Book of Mormon. I could fully explain this belief to you, but I feel like I would be wasting my time.

Don't forget all the "lost books" that were left out of the bible there is a lot of goodness lost in the translation and decisions of men who decided what we should see and what we shouldn't! If only we could gain access to the vaults of the vatacan to see what's really been left out and "lost"

Let us remember, long before the reformers came along there was the Council of Nicaea.Where a group of clergy came together to determine who and what they believed.Lot's of history here, not many people have studied what the Council of Nicaea was all about.Then after the 14th century came the reformers who read the bible and determined what they thought it to be.So your question is why are there so many different interpretations of the bible! After all it is God's word.Yeah I'd do some research on the Council of Nicaea, it seems they had a tough time making some decisions!

Mary, the idea that all religions lead to the same God is faulty logic at the very least. Considering the truth claims made by the church, and considering what Jesus had to say about himself, you can either believe it or not, but if one believes it then we can NOT just leave everyone to "live in in your own happiness." It's not "brainwashing," it is clear thinking, and having the courage to act on what we profess. Having said that, I am fully aware that many who call themselves Christians do not live up to the name, myself included, but that does not relieve us of the obligation to tell others about Jesus Christ. I may not be the best example of a Christian woman, but I still have to tell others about why I believe that Jesus is "the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (His words, not mine). If you choose not to believe, fine; go in peace. But you can't claim that Jesus was not who He claimed to be, but was just a good man, a good teacher, etc. To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, Jesus was either who He said He is, or He is a liar or a lunatic, which would preclude His being "a good man," or a "good teacher." You said "There is truly more to life than brow beating people until they join your "faith"." How true. In particular, there is more to life than just this world. After this life there is eternity. Now, if I spend my life living out the consequences of my faith, caring for the poor and sharing the Gospel with others, and I'm wrong about Jesus, then I've lived my life well and hopefully I have left the world a little better than I found it. On the other hand, if you live your life according to your current beliefs, then maybe you've left this world better than you found it, but if you are wrong about Jesus, then it will cost you everything. The choice is yours. But we who know the Truth cannot remain silent, in spite of our faults.

Eric Wittmershaus What I have problems with are praying to saints and asking them to intercede. First of all that is necromancy and secondly it insults the scriptures where we are told to pray one for another. In other words, we are put here on this earth for a period of time and are placed here by God to share our lives with others who are also walking the earth at the same time. We are to pull together just as those in past times did and we are to pray for one another. You don't need Mary. You need me and you need those around you to stand with you. Find your comfort in what God has given you and you will find that he has given you a rich and abundant life replete with other humans who will love you and stand with you through good times and bad.

Catholics are Christian with lots and lots of of non-biblical stuff(seriously, honest Catholics should read the Bible) and with something excellent and beautiful that few other denominations have. Each church has true believers and non-believers. Mormonism is NOT Christian in its main doctrines.

Deborah Hardgrave Franklin - Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. God the Father evolved from an ordinary man (somewhere, at some point in time) God the Father had literal sexual relations with Mary Mary gave birth to Jesus (the spirit brother of Satan) Jesus evolved from an ordinary man to become a god As an evolved god, Jesus was perfect enough to cover our sin - so that we also may evolve to become our own gods as well. If that's all true, Who evolved to make a perfect sacrifice to cover God the Father's sin? If that's all true, Who evolved to make a perfect sacrifice to cover Jesus the Son's sin? As a woman in the Mormon faith - you will always be second class - never attaining "god-head" You will never be equal to ANY man - does that sound like a loving God to you? Eternal second class status - just because you were born female? The highest level you can attain is to be ONE OF MANY "spirit-wives" of ONE evolved god.

Mary Raisor King - It was a simple question. Why all the hysterics? You asked why it matters what others do or don't believe. I believe in Heaven - I believe in Hell. I believe that Jesus is Who He says He is. Therefore, I believe eternity matters. If I believe that some will spend eternity in Hell - then yes, I'm concerned for my fellow human beings. Who wouldn't be? Who do you say Jesus is?

Closed-mindedness is a sad thing. I feel sorry for all of you who are brain-washed into thinking "your religion" is "THE" only one, or the only "true" one. Sad, sad, sad... There is truly more to life than brow beating people until they join your "faith". Life is short...live in your own happiness and leave others to do the same.

Daniel Hollywood Oh, so you DO read the Book of Mormon? I am so glad to hear that. My favorite books are the Bible, BOM, D&C and The Pearl of Great Price.

Sue Williams I have "investigated" and found The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be the one true church on the face of this earth. I have been a member for 29 years and have run up against people such as you who have set out to run down my faith. I do not blindly follow but I read and pray and understand and I do go to the Temple on a regular basis. The more people attack my faith the more I KNOW that it is the TRUE church. I have heard and read what you have posted above, many times. Yes, Heavenly Father IS a perfected and glorified and Man. As man is, God once was and as God is, man can become. I know what I know to be the truth. I am sorry if you feel you much go on the defensive. Just keep loving the Savior and Heavenly Father in your own way and I shall continue to do the same. Nothing you can say will ever change my mind about my religion or the belief I have in its truthfulness.

Sue Williams What you don't seem to understand is does it really matter to YOU where I spend eternity? To each his own. And please don't try to convince me I should spend my eternity where you are planning on spending yours.

Eric Wittmershaus ok what that video states about Mormonism is more similar to RCC than you would think..............I did once a research paper on the topic of 'The Bible and the RCC' I had also some first-hand exposure as i lived for 10 years in Austria
