Mormons are Christians

Mormons is a nickname will you have it given the members of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the church that I am a proud member of. I would like to take a moment to clear up a specific misconception about The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have come across many times in my young life.

"Mormons are not Christians" - INCORRECT

First off what is a Christian? A person who believes in and tries to be like Jesus Christ. Just take a look at the name of the Church:

The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints of Latter-day Saints

The first time I can remember being confronted with this statement I was 12 or 13. In my humanities class I had written a book about Joesph Smith the modern day prophet who restored the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The teachers aid was reading through my book with me and she told me my information was incorrect. I had written in the front of the book that members of The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints are Christians. She was convinced that this was incorrect.

I testified to her that the Church that Joesph Smith restored is named The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints because Jesus Christ is the center of the religion and the people of the religion pattern their lives after the life of Jesus Christ and follow his plan of salvation and that his atonement is of great importance.

Today as an older and a littler wiser woman I again testify that Mormons or members of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints are absolutely Christians, everything they believe revolves around the life and mission of Jesus Christ the savior and redeemer of the world.

If you want to learn about this religion talk to people who fiercely live it not people from other religions.

Well said! Don't you love when other people try to tell you what you believe? People are crazy.
