Your source was but one. Whatever established religions maintain is irrelevant. The only thing required to be Christian is the belief in Christ and what he taught. This varies from church to church does it not? The Jewish faith does not recognize Jesus as the Messiah. Mormons do. Baptism itself varies from church to church. For example, Baptists require full immersion. Many Christian churches do not recognize Catholics either. It is all highly subjective and made up. The only thing I can see is if a group recognized Christ as the Messiah or not as being the sole definer of Christian.
What you say is NOT TRUE. While believing in Jesus of Nazareth is a necessary condition to be a Christian, it is NOT a sufficient condition to be a christian. There ARE other things you MUST believe also, such as Yahweh being the ONE AND ONLY Creator Of All Things. Mormons do NOT believe this. They also have other DISTINCTLY NON-CHRISTIAN beliefs and practices INCLUDING "baptizing by proxy", which is ONCE AGAIN in the news today. "Baptism by proxy" is a NON-CHRISTIAN belief and practice which has offended a great many people, Christians included, BUT PARTICULARLY JEWISH PEOPLE.

Any Christian church. Why don't you ask you're own pastor or write a letter to an official in your denomination and ask them if what I say is true ? Or just look it up on the web.

My priest and pastor would not agree with your position.

Are you a Roman Catholic or an Episcopalian ?

No.

Ask your the religious leader at your place of worship if your religious organization recognizes the Mormons as Christians. I bet you they will agree with me and say they do not recognize them as Christians.

Many have changed over the years. In the past, my church did not recognize any other religions. Times are changing.
