RG2G 041 Are Mormons Christians, or Not?

One of the questions I keep getting over and over is, “What about the Mormons?  For all the good that they do and the high moral teaching they hold forth, surely they are Christians.”

This question is of unique interest these days, because some of the leading candidates in the 2012 upcoming election are Mormons.  So it’s interesting to see what Mormonism looks like in the light of day and the scrutiny of public disclosure.

Today we’ll take Mormonism and its teachings apart and see how they stack up against the basic essentials of Christianity.  The principles that we use today can be used not just in Mormonism, but in any movement or group in assessing the reliability of whether or not what they believe and practice can be considered Christian.
