I myself, am a Mormon, and as such, I have always heard others tell me that Mormons are just a cult who "aren't real Christians. Now, I am not looking for someone who is just going to tell me that my religion is wrong and that I have wasted my time. I am looking to express my ideals and hear what others have to say about this topic. Good luck, and let's begin. I am going to start by saying that Mormons are Christians because they believe in Jesus Christ. Christian: a person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings.

No Mormons cant be Christians.

The Father,Son and Holy Spirit are one being thus the religion of Christianity being monotheistic. However Mormon believe that they are all separate beings meaning that their religion is polytheistic. This contradicts the very nature of Christianity and goes against what is said in the bible.

They don't believe the bible is trustworthy and created their own book. If you don't adhere to the bible or you are suspicious of it you cant be Christian.

The Mormon belief says that when we die we all become divine gods. Specifically stated in the bible that we don't even become angels so how could we become a "god".

My source is a theology professor who has studied both the bible and the book of mormon

Those are interesting reasons for not being a Christian any longer.

I was realized that it all was just fake

That the chance of being born into the right relgion out of the 4200 was impossible.

Also the fact that cheisitanity implicates that only Christians go to heaven. I found that laughable

What made you stop being a Christian?

Insane people can teach a great many things to those who are sane

"Only when dreams seem the most insane are they the most profound."

I feel we are getting into is a Jesus all powerful debate. You believe I don't. Simple as that

The only reason I was ever a Christian was because I thought I would burn in hell if I wasn't one

I agree with you on the last part. But I do not think that you can be the man Jesus was and still be insane. Historians of the time period have refereed to Jesus as a good teacher. That doesn't describe an insane person. Remember, insane people are treated in asylums...

Just because your insane doesn't mean you can't be a good person

He helped the poor and sick

So even if he was insane

He was a good guy in my book

He also claimed to be God. Do you think he was insane? Because in that case he could not be a good person.
