It is clear that Mormon is not a type of Christianity. For one they don't believe that God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit are the same person which is clearly stated in the new testament. Then why would they use the Bible when it goes against their beliefs. Also, why would they have 3 books? Especially since they contradict each other. so in other words Mormon is NOT a type of Christianity.

Let's do this.

Where is your proof that Mormons do not believe in God and Jesus?

As reading about Mormonism on their website, (lds.org), it says that the in fact DO believe in God, and DO recognize Jesus Christ as their savior.

They do partake in a daily schedule like other denominations of Christianity, like- going to church, receiving sacrament, and worshipping God.
I would like to see your argument.

Lost of words? Not really. Just seeing if you had any other weak back-boned arguments for me. I mean really? Why would Mormons have 3 books anyway? Did God just decide that the Mormons should have special attention and give them 3 books? Besides, why have three books that totally contradict each other? Even the other types of Christians agree with me. They don't believe that Mormon is a type of Christian. All types of Christians believe in the same basic things, that Jesus is our savior, that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are the same, a trinity, that Jesus is the way to heaven, etc. the list is endless, but one difference is that Mormons don't believe that God, Jesus, and the Holy spirit are the same. I mean, it state clearly in the New Testament that they are the same people! So why would you even have the Bible if your other books are contradicting things the Bible states clearly? Obviously, Mormon is a fake religion and definitely not a part of Christianity. SO there, lost for words?

YOU are contradicting yourself! At first YOU stated that they believe in God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit but NOW saying they believe they are all the same person? YOU have NO FACTS to backup your opinions without totally CHANGING your arguments.

The argument about the books doesn't really tie into the argument. As I see it the main point is that Mormons aren't Christians because they believe in a different God. I can see your point. It is a fact that we view that nature of God differently than most Christians.

It is interesting to note, however, than may of the doctrines that support the Trinity stem from the Nicean Creed which is not a part of the Bible.

Our books of scripture don't contradict one another. If you are looking for seeming contradictions than you have no further to go than the bible.

However, we truly to believe in Jesus Christ. We just believe that he has a father who sent him here. We believe that he came here and died for us. That makes us Christian.
