Simple Proof that Mormons are not Christians

Mormons portray themselves as the one true church of Jesus Christ.  It is stated in the name of their organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  They say they believe in Jesus.  They talk about him.  The Book of Mormon is supposedly another testament of Jesus Christ.

So....they must be Christians, right?

Wrong!

Mormonism fails the most basic of all tests of Christianity.  In order to be Christian, a group must believe in the most basic and central belief of Christianity.  That belief is not a belief in Jesus as the Christ.  That comes later.

So...what is the most basic and core belief of Christianity?

God: Eternal, Creator of all, and the Father of all.

Mormons will quickly point out that the believe in God and pray to him.  The problem with that is their definition of God is totally different than any Christian, Jew, or Muslim.  The central teaching about God in Mormonism denies His eternal nature.  Mormons sum up the belief nicely in an easy to remember saying.

"As man is, God once was.  As God is, man may become." Stated by Lorenzo Snow, former prophet.

This is complete blasphemy to any Jew, Muslim or Christian.  This cute little say states that God was once a man!  It goes on to state that men may become gods themselves!  This is the ultimate heresy.

I still have trouble even wrapping my brain around this.  God was a man?  They do not mean this in the same sense that God was made flesh in Jesus to dwell among us.  They mean he was a normal, typical male doing all the things males do.  He lived a good life and was rewarded by becoming a god.  He was given our world to populate.

Even worse than the thought of God having once been a man is the thought that men can become gods and have their own worlds to populate.  Think about it.  Each and every Mormon man believes that if he lives according to the dictates of his religion, he will be rewarded by becoming a god and having his own world.  Women are rewarded IF their husbands choose to elevate them.  Their reward is to be forever pregnant and having spirit babies to populate their husbands world.

I am not making this up.

Mormons deny God is eternal.  They blaspheme in thinking that the men can become a god themselves.

Mormons are polytheists,  The Mormons believe in an incredible number of possible gods.

By denying God as eternal, unchanging and creator of all, Mormons fail the most basic of all tests of Christianity.  It does not matter how many times they talk about Jesus or pray to God.  They are not praying to the same God that is exalted by the three major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Mormonism is not a form of Christianity and without a belief in the eternal and creator God, Mormonism can not be including in the same classification as the three great religions that do worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Mormonism has more in common with the polytheists of ancient Greece and Rome than the monotheistic Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
