I read comments that said Mormonism is a cult! I did some research on it and I'm still not sure if I should choose Mormonism over Christianity!
The Book Of Mormon is not that old compared to the Bible.

The Book of Mormon isn't to replace the Bible. Its goes with it. If you want to know more about it, perhaps you should study the religion.

Really, all religions are cult, as defined as a system of worship, especially when they refer to rites/ceremonies. Being a cult, or religious group, isn't a bad thing, and as for choosing either Mormonism or Christianity -- go with whichever one you feel more comfortable with, whichever one you believe in the most.

The Baptist church I go to is struggling with attendance. 0ur pastor is a big Romney supporter so they must not think Mormonism is a cult. I've heard him say that Obama isn't a Christian. I have never heard him say Romney isn't a Christian.
Maybe this area needs Mormon Churches to energize the people in this area.
I think people need more choices on what religions to worship!
If preachers are for Romney, shouldn't that be proof that Mormonism isn't a cult?
Anyway, it is still hard to decide!

Yes, I am a Mormon. There are thousands of Mormon churches in the US and other countries. Yes there are several in West TN. They aren't hidding under a rock. Just ask.

How can a person who believes in the Bible support someone who believes the Book of Mormons?

Traditional Christians believe in the Trinity, that God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Mormons reject this as non-bibical creed. They believe that God the Father and Jesus are seperate physical beings and that God has a wife whom they call Heavenly Mother.

Mormons also believe in the afterlife humans will inherit their own planet and would become like God.

The definiton of CULT: a particular system of religious worship, especially with reference to its rites and ceremonies.

Now if i'm not mistaken ALL churches are a CULT. Mormonism is a CHRISTIAN BASED RELIGION.

Move On!!!

Any minister that would openly tell people the President, a lifelong baptized Christian, is anything other is passing judgment with authority he doesn't have. Maybe this so-called "minister" should concern himself with preaching the Gospel instead of fostering divisiveness. The pulpit is not a venue for political persuasion (legally or ethically). Shameful.

I have been around quite a few Mormon families since i married into one. I myself am Baptist. By definition all religions are cults, but by observing these families i would say these people are. I'm sure there are good Mormons out there, but these people give the word cult it's true meaning. In every religion, there is always one or two that make them look bad. Just by observing these people(7 families). I really don't think i would even consider looking into converting.

As far as I'm concerned Mormonism isn't a religion in itself but a denomination, like baptist, church of Christ, or Methodist. They have their own ways, yes, but in the end it's boils down to similar views. That being said, there are cults that say they are Mormon, just like there are cults that take the name of pretty much every religion under the sun. If you are truly curious go to multiple Mormon churches (if that is possible) and decide for yourself.

Romney says he is a Christian!

Below is just the beginnings of why Romney is not a Christian!

First: Mormons do not follow or believe in the historic Jesus Christ of the Bible, but rather in a difference Jesus. This is why most Biblical Christians emphatically insist that Mormons are not Christians. Let me explain.

The god of the Mormons is not the God of the Bible. To the Mormons, Jesus is the firstborn son of an exalted "man" who became the god of this world. The man-god of Mormonism was made the god of this world because of his good works on another planet somewhere out in the universe. He "earned" godhood, and was thus appointed by a counsel of gods in the heavens to his high position as the god of planet Earth. The Mormon god of this world was a man, like all men, who became a god. This is what the celestial marriage and the temple vows are all about. LDS men, by doing their temple work, are striving for exaltation by which they, too, shall one day become gods. Their wives will be the mother goddesses of "their" world and with their husband will produce the population of their world. This is the Mormon doctrine of "eternal progression."

Note the following quote from the Mormon Journal of Discourses, vol. 1, page 123, made by the LDS Apostle Orson Hyde:

"Remember that God, our heavenly Father, was perhaps once a child, a mortal like we ourselves, and rose step by step in the scale of progress, in the school of advancement; has moved forward and overcome, until He has arrived at the point were He is."

Lorenzo Snow, late President of the Mormon church, made this statement in the second verse of his famous poem entitled, "Man's Destiny":

"As Abra'm, Isaac, Jacob, too, babes, then men--to gods they grew. As man now is, our God once was; As now God is, so man may be,-- Which doth unfold man's destiny..."

The God of the Bible is not an exalted man. The God of the Bible is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. The Bible says He is the only God and there are no other Gods. He had no beginning or end and he is a spirit being and never was a man.

Romney is looking forward to many wives when he dies! He will be a God and have his own planet to re-populate! God and his wife are already on a planet near the star Kolob waiting on their new God neighbors!
The Mormon religion is similar to the terrorist religions in that they will be having lots of sex in the afterlife!
