This is a question that irks Mormons to no-end, “is Mormonism Christian?”. I honestly understand the frustration it must cause. If you would like a respectful and well-reasoned answer from an Evangelical perspective I would recommend Chapter 9 of “The New Mormon Challenge.” You might think the question is totally stupid, but at least you can have an honest answer without flippant accusations of Satanic and cultic behavior. I’ll honestly admit that most Evangelical Christians don’t know enough about Mormonism to give a good answer.
Standing Together Ministries is giving away FREE copies of chapter 9, “Is Mormonism Christian?” by Craig Blomberg. Just click on the link and request your own copy.
I don’t expect a single Mormon anywhere to walk away from reading it saying “Oh, I guess he’s right, we’re not really Christian.” But I do think that Mormons can walk away saying “Finally, I understand why Evangelicals don’t think we’re Christian.”
There is likely going to be A LOT of comments suggesting why Mormonism is or isn’t Christian. I think the chapter from the New Mormon Challenge is the BEST answer any non-LDS is going to be able to give. I’m tempted to close the comments section because I don’t think many will actually comment on Blomberg’s essay, but I think discussion is healthy. So, go for it!
