To say you are a mormon is saying I am not a Christian.

That is your incorrect and biased opinion.

And you are NOT biased and/or incorrect? Prove it.

Everyone is biased in some way due to their background, previous experiences, surroundings, and teachings. I used to be completely against the church until I researched it for myself instead of listening to what others had to say about it.
My point is, just because you or some other poster says the LDS church is wrong, doesn't make it a fact.
And calling it a cult doesn't even make sense. It's just an attempt at a derogatory comment. By some definitions, all religions are cults. Does that mean anything? Does it make it any less valid to a person that adheres to its doctrine? Or for that matter, does it make it any less creditable to someone that already didn't believe in it?

Whatever, though you do flatter me, indeed, by continuing to let me know at various intervals that here on Topix I continue to have my very own, personal, just-for-me stalker.... Were I just not an everyday person - say I was a narcissistic Mo like you - I'd actually be getting some delusions of grandeur right about now... But I'll simply be content to be the target of your own personal stalking vendetta right now.

Thanks for the support.

That everyone is biased in some way? Are you serious? You may be the only one in the world that doesn't believe everyone has some type of bias, due to their surroundings and upbringing. How about you prove me wrong. That would be more interesting.

We are a product of many experiences, situations, teachings, and hard knocks.

Now you're just acting like an idiot - most probably to avoid having to answer the question. So I will ask it for the third time - prove what you said is correct about your faith, and that everyone else is wrong.

For instance, Mr DO WHUT, I can prove the correctness of what Mr fedupwiththemess said above, by going to other leaders and members of traditional Christian churches, and they will say that they do NOT consider Mormons to be Christians. End of story.

If you want some links, just ask for them. But you won't because you know I can do it. Instead you just sit here playing games with sentence structure to avoid addressing the whole point you opened up with Posting #2 on this thread.

Can you please specify which part and I will be glad to. I guess I thought you meant the bias part. If you can calm yourself down a bit, why don't you just ask me what you want to know?

My point is, why do I care what a bunch of other people think? I know I follow Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that suffered for our sins in Gethsemane, and died on the cross to complete the atonement for the sins of the world. What some Protestant thinks matters not to me. Christian means follower of Christ. I follow Him and all His commandments, therefore I am Christian.
I've had a Texan tell me I'm not a southerner because I wasn't from Texas. Does that mean I'm really not a southerner? I don't think so. His ignorance doesn't change anything.

Same with this, just because you, or some others think I'm no Christian, doesn't mean you are right.

You just can't seem to prove it as you've been requested to for four times now.

I tire of talking to brick walls who spew their scripts on and on and don't wish to have a two way conversation that involves some thought. So after four times I'll just withdraw my request for you to prove anything because your non-response makes it quite apparent you cannot prove anything regarding the accuracy of what you post here.

why don't you just try specifying what you want me to prove. That would work.
