Difference Between Mormons and Christians

Mormons vs Christians

Mormons and Christians both believe in Jesus Christ. Though Mormons consider themselves to be Christians, they are not considered so by the Protestant and Catholic Christians. Both the Mormons and Christians share many things in common but there are also many differences between the two groups.

Mormons, as a religious group, were formed by Joseph Smith, who is regarded to have restored the church. It was in the 1820s that Mormonism developed. Official name of the Mormon church is ” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”.

Regarding the differences between Mormons and Christians, the former sect believes in the Book of Mormon, otherwise known as the Mormon bible as well as the Holy Bible; The Pearl of great Price, and Covenants and Doctrines. Christians believe in the Holy Bible.

Regarding their belief in God, the Mormons believe in a heavenly father who has a physical body. On the other hand, Christians believe in Trinitarian God, who has no physical body. For the Christians, they have one god, the Trinity with Jesus as Messiah. Christians also believe in salvation. Mormons do not believe in the Trinity or one God. But they have three Gods  – The Father, Son and Holy Ghost. All the three are distinct from each other in all ways.

For the Christians, Jesus is believed to have been born to the Virgin Mary, whereas Mormons believe that Jesus had a natural birth and was born of a Heavenly Father and of Mary.

In terms of Sin, the Mormons believe that all men are accountable for their own sins and all mankind will be resurrected and saved at the last day. For Christians, sin is horrific as it dishonours God. They believe that sin is treason against God and the Holy Spirit.

When compared to Christians, the Mormons lead a disciplined life. The Mormons are against the use of alcohol, tobacco, tea, coffee and other addictive substances.

Summary

  1. Mormons as a religious group were formed by Joseph Smith, who is regarded to have restored the church. It was in 1820s that Mormonism was founded.

  1. Sorry I called this blog strange. It looked like my message was deleted. Then I saw it under moderation again and finally posted. Mormonism does attack the Christian Church then run and hide when one thunders on their whitewash. They are so unworthy of any honor.
    They call Jesus Satan’s brother. They call God flesh. They call Christians an abomination to their man-made god. They rejoice when Satan say’s they will become God’s and believe him then reject God’s word who say’s,
    •Exodus 20:2-3: “I am the Lord your God…. You shall have no other gods before me.”
    •Exodus 34:14: “Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”
    •Deuteronomy 4:35: “You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.”
    •Deuteronomy 4:39: “Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.”
    •Deuteronomy 6:4-5: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”
    •Deuteronomy 32:39: “See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides me.

    • Dear Gme,
      I just saw your comment and I would be delighted to clarify some of these statements, if you are still wondering. 🙂
      Mormons are Christians, therefore they do not attack the Christian Church (by this I assume you are referring to the rest of Christianity, but please correct me if I’m mistaken). When Joseph Smith received the First Vision, he was told that none of the Christian churches then on the Earth had the full truth. This doesn’t mean that they were all completely wrong. Many had aspects of doctrine that were correct, but did not have the fullness of the gospel because the priesthood had not been restored to the Earth. The Restoration was necessary to restore all the keys of the gospel to Earth again.
      Yes, we do believe that Satan and Jesus are brothers. We also believe that we are their brothers and sisters. We are all spirit children of God, who knows and loves each one of us individually. In the premortal life (before we were born), God presented a Plan of Happiness that would allow each one of his children to come to Earth, gain a body, learn and grow, and return to Him if they were righteous. Because no one is perfect and God knew that all men would sin while they were in their mortal lives, a Savior was needed to take on the sins of the world so that we can repent and forsake our sins. Christ was chosen as the Savior of mankind. Satan presented an opposing plan, wherein men would come to Earth, but be forced to choose good. Satan wanted to then receive all the glory. By Satan’s plan, man would have no freedom to choose. God rejected Satan’s plan because it would not help us to become more like Him, which is what He wants us to do. Because Satan rebelled against God, he fell from grace and was not allowed to have a mortal body. Not all children of God are righteous, but that does not change whose children they are.
      Yes, we do believe that God has a body of flesh and bone. I don’t know if this is what you meant by saying we “call God flesh.” God is perfect, so he is not of mortal flesh (which is imperfect). Instead, he is an immortal physical being.
      We do not believe God to be man-made. We do not call other Christians an abomination. We are all children of God, and as I said before, many other Christian religions have some truth to them. Instead of rejecting others for their beliefs, we invite them kindly to come and learn about ours.
      I’m not sure I fully understand what you’re trying to say with your last sentence, but I’ll respond as best I can. We certainly do not rejoice in anything Satan says, for he is evil and wants to tempt us to sin so that we will become miserable like him. I love your Bible references and would like to clarify that we do not reject them at all. There is one God and He is the only God. We do not worship any other gods.
      I hope this helped explain some things to you and to any others who read this. If you have any questions, feel free to reply or to visit lds.org and mormon.org to find out about LDS beliefs.
      All the best 🙂

      • Thank you for this information. Your article was very well written, understandable and succinct.

      • Well explained, it really strengthened my testimony tho.

      • I think you are overlooking that Jesus said there would be many false prophets who would come after him, telling people they were receiving messages (like Joseph Smith, Ron L Hubbard, scientology) who would alter Christianity, claiming different ways to worship and many would fall into these traps.
        Also, to claim Jesus and Satan are brothers is blasphemous and VERY dangerous-the sin that will not be forgotten. How on earth can the most evil one be aligned with the most holy one? Absolute nonsense, they’re miles apart. Mormons should think very carefully

        • Sorry, L Ron Hubbard and the sin that will not be forgiven

        • Pamela, if God created the universe and all that is in existence, if we were all made to be in his image, then it only makes sense that he also created Satan. If you don’t believe he did, then you don’t believe he is God, who created everything. Where do you believe Satan came from? Also, 1. It’s called doctrine and covenants (at least do some research before writing) 2. The book of Mormon is not the Mormon Bible. The Bible is 1st, the book of Mormon is also known as ” another testament of Christ” literally as it’s description. The holy Bible and book of Mormon are totally separate books and both the most important books in the church. 3. Christ is our savior and redeemer and not a God. The holy ghost is… the holy ghost not a God. The exact same as all other Christian religions believe. The name of the church is literally the church of Jesus christ of latter day saints. I don’t know how you can be more Christian than that. Whether beliefs are a little different or the same, this entire article is wrong and if the writer couldn’t even get the name of one of the scriptures right, it just goes to show how little research was done and thus explaining how everything written is false. If you want to know about a religion, look for said religions own explanation of who they are and their beliefs rather than some random blog by someone who clearly never was part of said religion. This applies to any religion. All Christian religions share common beliefs and they also all differ some but at the core they all believe that there is one God, one savior and redeemer and the holy ghost. The lds religion is no different in that department.

          • The Holy Bible plus nothing is true Judea-Christianity. Period.

          • God gave the angels free will as well as us. Satan decided to do his own thing and God did not create evil. We are created in God’s image, not the angels. And Joseph Smith altered the bible which the original one and true one says not to do. It sounds like Satan decided him, appearing as an angel of light. Read the real deal!

          • I meant the angels are not created in God’s image♥️

        • Amen and Amen. PTL

        • Thank you for clarifying this I have a morman friend and Im a Christian and this helps me understand.

        • I’m a Christian, my concern is should we always love all Christian no matter what there teaching and still love them all no matter what there back ground relationship with our one God that sent Jesus to show us to love all like Jesus did . And let God judge us individually and put together on his right path.l love all Christians of all religions. An to be like Jesus. So know matter what church group and other like Catholic , sda, lds , baptist, Lutheran and so on . I still show my love like a brother in like Jesus would. Isn’t that what we should do . Explain to me if it’s the right way.

        • Is it not true that Able was brother to Cain. If that is true then why is it so outrageous that we think that Jesus and Satin are brothers? We do not think that they are allied or that Satin is good. We just think that we are all brothers and sisters in the spirit world which includes both of them. We do not feel as though Satan is good or that he is capable of being redeemed. We believe that Jesus is the Savior that died for us to give us a choice to repent for our sins and to live like him.

        • First AMEN
          Hello All,
          Please look over me trying to explain myself and what I personally believe and do not agree with say all and first Jesus and Satan brothers and saying we are also we are brothers and sister of Satan.

      • Mormons are NOT CHRISTIANS. If so, than they would be following and reading from Christian Holy Bibles. They are only Mormons. Nothing else. Mormons are following man’s own belief: Joseph Smith. That is NOT who Christians follows at all. Christians believes and only follows Jesus Christ alone. So Mormons are absolutely nothing to be Christians. Christian literally means Follower of Christ. And Mormons are NOT following Christ’s Words and ways alone. They are following Joseph Smith’s own beliefs and doing things that are not of Jesus Christ. Which makes them BELIEVERS OF MAN, which is a sin in itself.

        • Wow. If you’ve ever talked to anyone that belongs to The Church of JESUS CHRIST, aka “Mormon”, you would know you are wrong on so many levels. We believe the Church of Jesus Christ was on the earth for thousands of years, and people slowly forgot to put God and his son, Jesus Christ first, and many aspects of it were lost. When Joseph Smith (a man, not our God) questioned which church to go to, he felt they all had bits and pieces that he felt were true, but he wanted to know which one to go to. Now, I know this is hard for people (like you) to grasp, but God, our Heavenly Father, and his son, Jesus Christ (yes, the same one you believe in) appeared to him, and told him that mankind was ready to have the fullness of the gospel on the earth again. We don’t worship Joseph Smith. He was a prophet, who seeked answers from the Holy Bible (yes, thee Holy Bible), and was given them. He then went on to be led to, and translate ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon. It’s not a “Mormon Bible”, it is another testament and witness of God and Jesus. In the Americas. He didn’t just communicate with one people. Jesus visited the whole world, and the Book of Mormon tells of the people in the Americas, who witnessed the birth and death, and resurrection of Christ. Before you say hurtful and very untrue things about the LDS church, actually talk to and/or read material that is written by actual members of the church. I know you are a Christian. I am too. It literally means “followers of Christ”. I follow Christ, not man. Man is not perfect, that is why we are here in the earth, and that is why Christ died for us, so he could save us from our sins and live eternally with Him. Please stop saying things that you blatantly don’t know to be true. I know God lives and loves us. I know he sent his Son to die for us. I hope you have a better understanding of what I believe.

          • Awesomeness Revealed Once Again In Jesus Name Amen

          • Hello, I don’t doubt your sincerity, but foundational biblical teaching includes that Jesus Christ is God; he existed in the beginning; all things created were created by him; that as God in the flesh, he was born of a virgin; that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one; and the devil is a fallen created angel, So, it’s natural we are skeptical when one claims a man in the 1800s, using magic glasses to read unseen golden plates, gained extra-revelatory knowledge of God that contradicts foundational revelations of the disciples and apostles through whom the bible was received. Both beliefs cannot be true, so either the other Mormon holy books contradict the bible claimed also as a holy book, or an altered bible is being used. Paul spoke to the importance of foundational doctrine, stating twice in succession that “if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” I wish that upon no person, and say it merely to note what my bible says. I have family and friends who are Mormons, and it is only their eternal salvation that concerns me.

          • Don’t feel bad, he didn’t even get the beliefs in Christianity right.

      • Thank you for all this information. I know much more than I did before and understanding makes it easier to be compassionate.

      • Once a beautiful angel named Lucifer who *defied* God and fell from grace.
        Along with others who felt they didn’t have to either total was 7 who fell from grace

      • Blasphemy. Jesus Christ and Satan are not brothers. Mormonism is a false doctrine!!!! They believe in the lie instead of the truth. Mormons have itching ears!

        • This is the first time I’m hearing jesus is Satan brother santana was a angle wanted to be like God we satan brother because when some of the angle fall from heaven some mixed with us jesus made satan he have no begin &end we all his children including satan

          • No Satan was a created being. We were born of my father. Making us his children. Those who do what he say. Meaning loving your black brothers. And not thinking you own slaves. That would be pride and that’s why Satan was kicked out of heaven.in this case parodies. Lifted up in pride. Isiah chap 14 verse 12 he brought his own light with him son of the morning. Many of you are walking around thinking you are walking in truth and have satans light. That light don’t want to let everyone in. Most religion think the blacks are cursed. Hams seed but the devil has fool you thinking you are special and have class privilege. Which you believe. You refuse to love these people and to treat them fare. But my father is watching you st John 5–39 -47 here we are told to search the scriptures for many think they have eternal life and are on their way to hell. You have to love all especially the true saints.

      • Awesomeness Revealed

      • your beliefs are not biblical and Joseph Smith was not a prophet.

      • I was raised a Baptist Christian and became a non-denominational Christian as an adult I do not understand where the l d s community gets Jesus being Satan’s brother? Do you or do you not believe that Jesus is our Lord and savior and died on the cross for our sins and without him we will not be saved?

      • There is only one Bible, you believe in. No other reason to believe in the Mormon books. In the Bible it says do not add or take away from it. Joseph Smith was a good salesman but not to believe in his books.Where is the cross in the Mormon church’s.

      • Good afternoon, that is the first time I have seen some what of a good reply. If I may interject. There is only 1 God ,Jesus is that God . Jesus is the Creator of heaven and earth and everything else. Satan was created. So the first thing is they can not be brothers . Last thing for now, it is by Grace , through Faith alone that we are Saved, not Works. Works will come after we’re saved through the indwellment of the Holy Spirit, we all receive different gifts. Have a blessed day

      • I was invited to go to church not realizing it was Mormon,I am very spiritual and trying to be christ like and live according to the Bible.If I had know it was a Mormon church I probably wouldn’t of went.after going to church I found them to be like most other religions and I believe them to be Christians.I believe if we are truly seeking God he will lead you to were you need to be weather you are Mormon, Catholic, Muslim ect,I believe that you can only get to God through Jesus and what the Bible teaches but i also believe through prayer God will lead you through the holy spirit to the right path.The Mormons believe in Baptism of the dead and their prophet which are things I know nothing about and do not necessarily believe.I believe people get caught up on religion and miss the big picture. Love your God with you whole mind ,body and soul and love your neighbor as your self.I believe the enemy “Satan “uses division and confusion where ever he can through religion to take are focus Way from God.In conclusion I found going to the Mormons church to be a good experience and I believe they follow what most other Christians believe and follow.Instead of looking for flaws in one another maybe we should all come together under God.

      • I love your teaching, I know it to be true.
        It is self explanatory. They are inspired, I thank heavenly father for providing you this answers.

    • I really think you are speaking from alot of anger and judgement not based on facts.

    • Were did you get your information from. Im not Morman but have you actually set foot inside a mormon church. I have heard so many stories about this. Im not being rude just curious because i have never been to an actual church from that religion. Im just researching different churches so i know for myself which one i should join, but i will at least investigate any such religion for myself as well before i join. And in just curious.

      • look for a church that is Biblically sound. Worship God not a church.

      • I believed in the Bible anyone who changes the God breathed bible, it says they will be cursed …this is why I don’t cross over to my Mormon friends doctrine, because I believe in my Christianity and the virgin birth.
        Thanks for all your insights GBU all

      • There are many discrepancies in this as far as Mormons beliefs. We do believe in the Bible very much so. I’d be more than willing to answer any questions you may have.

    • Much of this posted us totally untrue and incorrect. We are Christians, only have 1 God, believe in the Bible and do not “listen to Satan”. We do not condemn other Christians or any religion and welcome anyone to ask questions. Our faith in God is equally strong and the His son Jesus. Please do more research before putting out stuff that gives false or misleading information.

      • Actually, Mormons will honestly, however naively profess belief in the Holy Bible and the same Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit as Christians believe in and worship. However, if any Mormon member would do an unbiased study of the Bible and how the Book of Mormon aligns as “Another Testament of Jesus Christ”, they will find that the Jesus of the Bible and the Jesus of the Book of Mormon are not congruent. Mormons are by majority not of sound understanding of the Bible. They believe that they are and feel confident that they know who God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are (as opposed to Christians). Having a conversation with a Mormon about Jesus Christ can be frustrating and oftentimes futile because they are already believing that they have a superior understanding of Jesus Christ because they believe only they have the complete packaged gospel of Jesus Christ. They can’t see their own lack of understanding or misunderstanding. They take offense at being told that they are not Christian because they truly believe that they are. The Holy Bible is not studied from a traditional Christian stance in the Mormon Church. Mormons put a Mormon Doctrine spin on the Bible and everything in the Bible is interpreted as it goes through the Mormon Doctrine filter. Mormons are actually being sincere when they profess to believe in the Bible and have that in common with the rest of the Christian world (that the Mormons believe don’t have the full or true gospel). Talk Bible and the God of the Bible with Mormons is like two people in actuality looking at two different colors and insisting that they are both seeing the same color. The Bible isn’t interpreted the same by Christians and Mormons. They both talk of Jesus Christ as the Savior and Redeemer, but they disregard the Bible when it contradicts their own Mormon Doctrine. The Mormon Church does not have the “fullness” of the Gospel; Mormons believe half-truths. I know this from an insiders view. I’m not condemning Mormons, but they honestly don’t understand what Christians do. If Mormons did understand the Bible and study it as even “another testament of Jesus Christ”, they have to reject the entire Bible entirely or cherry pick what is Truth and what isn’t. They believe that the Book of Mormon and their own “Doctrine and Covenants” and “Pearl of Great Price” supercede the Bible. When the Bible doesn’t align with these Mormon scriptures, the Mormons become apologetics for the Mormon scriptures and doctrine. Even though Mormons proclaim that the Book of Mormon is “another testament of Christ”, if they would be completely honest, actually believe that the Bible is the other testament of Christ that has been messed with so it comes second to Mormon scripture. The thing that Mormons don’t get is that there is nothing in the Bible that contradicts itself, but the Mormon scriptures not only have contradictions to what is in the Bible, but the three Mormon books of scriptures contradict each other in various places. The Bible stands without a single contradiction in Christianity – the Bible proves it’s Truth. The Mormon scriptures can’t stand on Truth. The God of the Bible is constant, consistent and faithful. The God of the Mormon scriptures is constantly vascilating. I was a believing Mormon for 42 years is why I can say this. I thought that the Christian world didn’t have the entire Truth. It was by the Grace of God that I was able to begin to see and understand Truth. I am referred to as an apostate in Mormon circles. That has a very negative connotation with the Mormon membership. I was sad to lose connections with friends, a culture and community because I found the Truth, but the Truth has indeed set me free. My love for Jesus Christ and hunger for the only Truth is greater and more valuable to me than mother or father, sister or brother, friend or community. In Him I have family, friend and community. And above all, I have Truth through Grace!

    • Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to thy own understanding in all thy ways acknowledge him (GOD the only true and living GOD) and he will direct your path. Religion are rules and regulations that one has made for people to live and chose to live by. Get a Relationship with GOD and you will not go wrong and have a need to have strife over who is right or wrong concerning the word of GOD. This is what was given to us from the beginning.

  2. I thought a different voice might be helpful here.

    What most people are overlooking, is the fact that religion (throughout history and at the present time) causes more harm than good. The bible is full of stories, written by human men, thousands of years ago. Anyone can say that God told them to say something or do something. What’s important is what you yourself say and do. And religion tends to take away from our personal responsibilities and puts them on something intangible.

    When you look at the history of human beings… these beliefs make perfect sense. Humans lived in a world without basic understanding of the world around them. These stories, now called sacred and holy texts, were a way for us to make some sense of what we saw and felt. This is what humans do, we’re problem solvers by nature. We do our best to make sense of the world around us with the tools that we have.

    All of the worlds religions have their own stories and many of them even borrow from one another. These stories were important, because they laid a foundation for more civil societies. Now.. that being said… Jesus, whether or not he actually existed as one man at the time mentioned, taught many things that are still very useful and relevant to this day. It’s too bad that the Christian religion doesn’t focus more on his teachings. Living the way Jesus taught people to live would make for a much more beautiful and peaceful world. One of the most powerful things Jesus ever said was “I am the way”. If people really tried to live like Jesus, then think of how differently they would be living than how they actually are.

    This is the most important thing that the Christian religion gave us. The teaching of peace and love toward all. And this brings me to another important fact… that of Jesus and The Buddha as very similar teachers. If you look at their direct teachings next to each other, you begin to see that they had more in common than usually mentioned. The main difference being that The Buddha never claimed to be divine. This is what makes Buddhism a practice, and Christianity a religion. I won’t refer to Buddhism as a religion. It was never meant to be one. And who’s to say Christianity was meant to be one either? We have many years, translations, and a lot of politics between us and the original purpose of Jesus’ teachings.

    I’m not against learning from the religions of the world… I’m all for learning. But blind faith in anything isn’t sane, and it isn’t healthy.

    Be a light unto yourself.

    Peace.

    • @Jason,
      You said that blind faith in anything is insane? So then, the last time you sat down on a chair, how did you know it was going to hold you without buckling under you? (Blind faith) the bible was written by holy men of God as they were taught by The Holy Spirit. The bible is infallible. There are no errors in it unless it is man reading it! Judge the scriptures by other scriptures to see if you have read it correctly! It takes more faith to believe God is not listening to every word you speak, and you will be judged at the appointed time for your sins than it does to trust Jesus died in my place on the cross and rose on the 3rd day and is now in heaven waiting for the appointed time to reveal all to every man. God is everywhere at the same time, He knows every thought you ever had or will ever have, He know the motives behind your thoughts. God tells us in the bible, all have sinned and fall short of Gods Holy standard of righteousness. He also tells us the penalty of sin is death (eternal death)! That’s the bad news…the good news is Christ paid the penalty for the sins of those that will trust Him. Not by works of righteousness (nothing we do!) the sins of believers have been paid in full! Past, present and future! Praise His Holy Name. All he ask us to do is trust Him! Trust, and will be born again! The Holy Spirit will take up residence inside you, leading a new man to everlasting! Don’t trust and upon drawing your last breath you will spend eternity ih hell. ( eternal separation from God! Keep reading the bible and according to Gods Word those in hell are not enjoying beer, hanging with their buddy’s and satan is not in charge! It is a place the bible describes to be constant weeping and knashing of you teeth.. You Jason have blasphemed my Ho,y Lord by claiming lies about His truth.

      • Well said Linda! You are 100% correct, We are saved through faith not our works! Clearly says it in the Bible by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, Ephesians 2:8

      • The chair: science not blind faith.
        This is all insane! Too many people I know use religion to justify their hateful ways. If we REALLY followed Jesus, then we wouldn’t hate others for any reason and oh, we wouldn’t crave more and more material things at any cost.
        And we would not think of ourselves as being better for being Christian.
        Ian 64 and I haven’t met a true Christian yet, including myself, so all this musing about who is Christian and who is not is really pointless, because at best very few of those claiming to be Christian really are.

    • Think of it this way, speaking of way , early Christians were known as the way,,,Jesus is The Way,the only way to the one True God and Father of us all, our creator, there is many false ways and a real enemy who deceives the whole world, there is my way to your way to his and hers and to all the ways handed down and ways learned but only one Way and that is Jesus he is the way the truth and the life,no man comes unto the Father except thru Him, very important and Jesus said it for a reason buyback to what I was saying , Christianity is not a religion, it is reality ,, please look at it like this, mankind and his organization skills are not always very good and like I said there is a real enemy in the world, its the the reality of this current earth age and Jesus is the Way and so much more
      God Bless us each and everyone

    • I enjoyed your comment very well put. People all talk about the different faults that different religions have and to be sincere their are parts of the bible that have been lost. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts instead of saying what is wrong with this or that religion. Theirs flaws in everything. I dont think their is one unflawed religion we can think of. Thank you again.

    • It’s about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ the Lord of Glory, not religion. I will not cast my pearls among swine!

    • Very well said.
      Excellently worded and I believe correct on a Godly level.
      Thank You

    • God requires faith, belief and hope to come in the return of His son …that leads to salvation, the ones that do not accept Christ into their hearts will not go to heaven, I’m not saying where they will go but my faith is not blind or insane ..God has literally touched my arm at a woman’s retreat, we were soaking in the spirit and it was supernatural, I pray everyone would experience a supernatural episode, you just have to open your heart and mind to His love.. it has increased my faith and I’m not blind or insane.If anyone thinks so they need their blinders removed..take care and God bless.

    • Thank you for your input. I believe that you are correct about religion. God is not a religion, and religion can and does pervert the Truth. Religion is useful in supporting the Truth and living the Truth. I believe that Jesus is the Truth, the Way, the Light and Life of the world as He proclaimed. I don’t believe it is possible to be a light unto ourselves. We can only draw upon and reflect His light because we are not the source of light. Insisting that each of us are a light in and of ourselves is what pits us against and divides us as people. Our pride is the source of our own light. That “light” is pretty dark as history has proved over and over.
      I do appreciate you clarifying that Buddhism is not a religion and Buddha didn’t profess to be God. That is what made him wise!

  3. Humanly speaking, the Bible was written by approximately 40 men of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years. Despite being penned by different authors over 15 centuries, the Bible does not contradict itself and does not contain any errors. The authors all present different perspectives, but they all proclaim the same one true God, and the same one way of salvation—Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) Man today finds on the internet Bible verses rearranged out of context to believe their own lies to honor man rather than God.
    Mormon’s and Jehovah Witnesses are emenies to the Word of God by distorting His Word hiding the real God and Jesus behind their false man-made Jesus and God. I call these deceivers (Static… ) that God’s Word warned us that would be here today and they surely are. The Bible is from God who is a small still voice that cults thunder with static to drown Him out to replace Him by their own version that deny’s the true bibical God of the Bible.
    There were over 360 prophecies foretold about the coming Jewish Messiah – hundreds of years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Jesus fulfilled all 365 of these prophecies. Now look at the static of Mormon’s and Jehovah Witnesses prophecies. They failed and are proven liars. They make alotta noise to drown truth and the is choice is ours to believe in what man has done or in what Jesus has done on the cross.
    Ultimately, above the human authors, the Bible was written by God. 2nd Tim 3:16 tells us that the Bible was “breathed out” by God. God superintended the human authors of the Bible so that, while using their own writing styles and personalities, they still recorded exactly what God intended. The Bible was not dictated by God, but it was perfectly guided and entirely inspired by Him.
    Be a light unto yourself? Are you a lover of yourself as God’s Word proclaim that we will see in today’s times? The true Bibical Jesus is the light of the world. (John 8:12) There seemeth a way right unto man, but at the end thereof are the way of death. (Proverbs 14:12)

  4. There are a lot of comments here from people trying to convince you one way or the other as to which is right.
    This article does get a lot right, but not everything.
    However, I believe the question was what is the difference between Mormons and Christians, not which was right.
    But you know what?
    You want to know what a Catholic believes? Ask a Catholic.
    You want to know what a Baptist believes? Ask a Baptist.
    You want to know what a Mormon believes? Ask a Mormon.
    You want to know which is right? Ask God. (James 1:5)
    If you really want to know, ask the person who can give you the most correct answer. Don’t follow because someone told you so. Follow what GOD told YOU.
    I’m sure there will be rebuttals to this comment. You’re entitled to believe what you want. I’ll believe what I want because I believe God has told me what I should do. No vision, no angels, but he HAS answered my question in prayer.
    Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.
    If you really want to know, he’ll tell you.

    • I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am Christian, not Mormon. I grew up Roman Catholic and both believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. Calling us Mormon, just because we read a book called The Book of Mormon would be like calling everyone who reads the National Geographic “Geographers”. The only way to understand why we like the Book of Mormon is to read it yourself.

      • Exactly self inquiries matters, what you experience is different from what you are told, I wonder why people have eyes but can’t see, have ears but can’t see, why can’t they experiment their faith, prayerfully study the book of Mormon and ask God in prayer if it is from God.

      • You’re a disgrace to leave the Catholic Church for a cult!

        • explain Catholic leadership for years condone covering up preist who defiled children who are Christ most precious? The bible says to multiply and replenish the earth, not to stop a group of men and women the right to be a family. It seems thst alot of tithing money is being used to pay for law suits….

  5. As a “Mormon”, I just thought you should know your articles is riddle with inaccuracies regarding the “Mormon” beliefs. First of all, the correct name of the church is “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”. If you are going to quote it, quote it right.

    It’s not called the Mormon Bible. Nobody in the church calls it that. If you are going to say we believe in something name it correctly. The only way we address The Book of Mormon is as The Book of Mormon. Also, it’s called “Doctrine and Covenants”, not Covenants and Doctrine.

    I also find it strange that you say Christians. As though every Christian sect believes the same thing. Not every Christian sect believe in the Trinitarian God. Some believe they are 3 distinct beings, and they have a physical state of being, just like the Mormons. It seems that most of these “Christian” beliefs you are describing are based solely off what Catholics believe. Perhaps you should re-title article “The difference between Mormons and Catholics”.

    Mormons believe in Salvation, just like Christians. As to the 3 Gods statement. We believe in one supreme God, what you mentioned as Heavenly Father. He is God, but Christ, and the Holy Ghost serve in a unified Godhead with him. Like a President has a Vice President, and Secretary. The all work together unified as one in purpose, but we do not worship them individually. We worship God, our Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, our Savior. He speaks to us through the Holy Ghost.

    We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary. I’m not sure what you mean by natural birth. What is a unnatural birth? Or did you mean conception? We believe that our Heaven Father had a part in how Mary became pregnant, but the details are unknown, since the Bible doesn’t reveal the manner in which the transition took place.

    We believe exactly what you said about Mormons regarding responsibility for sin, but we also believe sin is horrific as it dishonours God. They believe that sin is treason against God. We believe everyone will be resurrected and have to face God for a judgment, but not everyone will be saved. Only those who are righteous and follow God. Not even all Mormons will be saved, which is another misconception. Just being a religion doesn’t save a person. It all depends on what kind of relationship the have with God.

    I have no idea where you got all your information for your article, but perhaps you should have gone to LDS.org to get the correct information. As one commenter mentioned, if you want to know about Mormons, ask as Mormon, or visit their website to find out what their beliefs are. And quote them correctly, don’t interpret it to what you think we believe.

    • Dear Alex,
      Great explanation! I’m glad that there are members out there helping correct some false conceptions about the Church.
      All the best 🙂

    • i have mormon neighbors and being a non denomonational Chrisitan I literally ask them what they feel about all kinds of things that pertain to there beliefs and the book of morman and honestly given them the chance to explain there beliefs and how they see things its really no different then what most people judge them and claim what the represent. I am just starting to look into it but so far with our talks with these two guys its literally the same as most other christians and im not saying I know everything yet but what I have learned is different then what people judge and claim them to be. they spoke about God and how he isnt 3 people but how he has 3 different purposes in how he goes about everything but its not true they believe there are 3 different people they believe in one God and that Jesus sacriced himself to pay for all of our sins and from my point of view use scripture the preach the word of God by using scripture and I learned they see and believe in the word the same way most do and that God and scripture are what they preached to me and its so far from what I have learned is that they seem just about everything the same way most of us do they just believe certain things arre not meant to be used or done such as sweet tea or coffee which that right there lets me know I couldnt be a mormon because I am not giving up my sweet tea. God gave us good ole sweet tea do love and drink the shit out of it and I will drink that shit till the day I die. By the way I am just starting to look into this but so far this is how I have learned is by asking what they think about this or that and truth is its just little things they go about in a different way but the main point is they preached god and scripture just like any other christian ive known but whats sad but true is alot of people who call themselves christians are the quickest to pass juggement on others and believe mormons are only about Joseph or John Smith but I learned that to not be true from the time i have spent asking how they feel about alot of things are how they interpret the bible and there explanations if you give them the chance or exactly what the bible scripture is meant to be seen just a little different way of expliaing it but then again ive yet to read much into it so I am not claiming I know alot about them but from what I have learned there beliefs and faith and how they explained to me there beliefs its no different then how i feel and I am a non demoninational christian who believes whatever faith works for you good for you but that God is our one and only god and that his son jesus sacrificed himelf to pay for our sins. i think people dont give them a chance because lots of people judge anyone who doesnt see thhings they way they do and it sayd in the bible who are we to judge one another. I asked what there thoughts on weed were and he told me well if used for medicinal purposes and it helps then they believed its ok because anyone who thinks otherwise should read Genesis 1:29

    • Stop referring to yourself as “Mormon”!!!!
      Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ARE NOT MORMONS!!!!!!!
      WE ARE CHRISTIANS.
      We believe in Christ, repentance and forgiveness by Our Father in heaven. Jesus Christ came to earth and died on the Cross so that we could all be redeemed by Atonement and return to Heaven.
      The Book of Mormon was transcribed by Joseph Smith under the guidance of God and His saints, just as the Bible was.

      • I just want to ask you where is this book Joseph Smith translated ? Please tell me, what you wrote was nice and all but you cannot say, just like the other books of the Bible when they are not like the others, we had the originals and they were copied and not translated as the Mormon book was, they are certainly not like the 66 books and letter we call the King James Holy Bible because we had copy of these books before the originals were lost to fires and time,than the discovery of the dead sea scrolls gave us back some originals and further validated the accuracy of the scribes work and our the copies, the book of Mormon is not the written word of God , it’s another testament of with no archeological evidence when there should be plenty, do not be decieved God is not mocked, what a man sows he shall reap, I know folks mean well and do try to serve but it is not by our works that we are saved but only by the shed blood of Jesus, the only Begotten Son of The Living God, I wouldn’t doubt that an angel visited Joseph Smith nor do I doubt that an angel visited Mohammad but you have to remember that the enemy doesn’t come up to people with 666 on his forehead, this would decieve no one and the fallen angels of darkness come to folks as an angel of light to decieve ,,, don’t be decieved by satan, he isn’t just going to come up and say boo with 666 on his forehead and he just might come and and say that he loves you, don’t be decieved, he is a liar and the father of it

      • I know this is true. Thank you for speaking it! No amount of debate will satisfy the need that only the The Holy Ghost can provide. It is by this power, the power of revelation through the Holy Ghost that I so testify, in the name of Jesus Christ my Savior. Amen

    • Thank you. I really enjoyed your comments thank you

  6. I would love to clarify a few things and make a few corrections. If you’ll bear with me…
    -The LDS books of scripture are the Book of Mormon, Holy Bible, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price. The wording is a bit misleading, the name of the Doctrine and Covenants is incorrect, and the Pearl of Great Price is incorrectly capitalized. I’m sorry for being picky about grammar on that last one, but I think it would help your website look more credible.
    -Again with grammar: the last sentence of the second paragraph is a fragment.
    -Every time a reference is made to “Christians” believing something other than Mormons, it gives the distinct impression that Mormons are not Christians. This is not true. I think that the wording “Other Christians” or “Protestants and Catholics” would be more accurate. Please note that this occurs several times throughout the text.
    -“Heavenly Father” should be capitalized each time it appears, just as you would capitalize “God” or “Jesus Christ.”
    -Mormons believe in one God; His Son, Jesus Christ; and the Holy Ghost. This is clearly outlined in the Pearl of Great Price, Articles of Faith 1:1. I think the wording of the 6th and 7th sentences of the 4th paragraph could be better worded in order to explain this doctrine more accurately.
    -“Sin” is not a proper noun and should not be capitalized unless it is at the beginning of a sentence.
    -The 6th paragraph should be revised for accuracy. What is said about LDS doctrine therein is a half-truth.
    -There are several fundamental doctrines that are not included herein. While I realize that this is not supposed to be a comprehensive list, I think it might be helpful to refer to the Pearl of Great Price, Articles of Faith. These are some clear statements about the beliefs of the LDS Church.
    In conclusion, it seems that the person who wrote this article wasn’t very familiar with LDS doctrine. I would respectfully ask that such articles in the future be better-researched and that this one be revised. As to the grammar corrections, I am not trying to be rude, just to give some polite tips and help.
    I have no desire to be rude or offensive in any way, but I think that people have the right to get clear, correct information about the LDS Church.
    All the best 🙂

  7. The reason people refer to LDS members as Mormon is because the church plastered
    billboards across the country with people declaring, “I am Mormon.”

  8. There are many comments here some are true. You can witness to a Morman until your blue in the face. In the end they’ll say your being contentious or judgemental. The devil hates the truth and he will judge those who say it. Only the wise love truth enough to search for it. I have an example of its value, if a man believed with all his heart that he could fly and jumped from a tall building what would matter more what he believed or the truth? In the end maybe God will be more forgiving of our simplicity but why risk it. If we are deceived it does not honor Him or bring us closer. Yes the Mormons hide from truth,it has always been Satan’s goal to diminish Jesus and those who do don’t speak for God. I pity them for being captive to a lie and leading their children astray. Their blind to their own pride and self righteousness and they have no love for the truth. I’ve tried to awaken them to their errors but it’s futile. I’ve narrowed it down to a simple Question. Can a Morman be a Christian as they say if they don’t believe what a Christian believes? I mean if you believe something completely different how is that possible? If you say there is no difference I submit that you Google it. Of course this won’t be enough they follow the wrong Shepherd and will never bring Him glory. I pity their children most of all for having such ignorant parents,there will come a time when they will be accountable too. Heaven is not a reward for the righteous its a gift for the guilty. Matt

    • AMEN Matthew

    • @matthew
      I’m confused as to what you mean in regards to the LDS church being fundamentally different then “The Christian church” Christianity is a broad belief in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice, which has many different adaptations including catholic, Baptist, etc. Church of Jesus Christ members believe in the teachings of the Bible and the sacrifice of Christ, with the Book of Mormon being an additional testament of Christ that was written by the original inhabitants of the Americas (Who become the native Americans) and then translated by Joseph Smith by the power of God.

    • Your comment makes me laugh by how ignorant you are on what you think the LDS church believes. You have tried to convince them that their ways are wrong when it’s obvious that you haven’t done any real research on what their church is about and what they believe. It’s articles like these and comments like yours that have given most people who bash on the LDS church, such a wildly misconstrued truth and judge the religion and it’s members based on them. I have spent allot of time doing actual research and have met many, many members throughout my life and this article along with the majority of the comments saying that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not a Christian religion is so far off. I mean, the name of their church alone should give a clue. They believe in God, his son Jesus Christ and in the holy ghost (spirit). The members that I have met have been great examples of love, service towards others and how to live with charity and being a good human, period. I have been to several of their church services and not once have I heard a single judgment, negative comment or statement on any other religion, Christian or non-Christian. One of the many reasons that they have my respect. I can’t say the same about a lot of other churches that I have investigated. People are going to try and convince people on what they should believe and are quick to judge others when they don’t understand. It comes down to being a good person. Doing the next right thing. Being of service to others and having a good heart. Imagine how far that would get us.

      Peace and love

    • I love the part that says that heaven is not a reward for the righteous, but a gift for the guilty. I couldn’t earn it, and i didn’t deserve it!

    • Thank you for your input. I was once a Mormon and I didn’t understand any of what you have posted. I am in a minority because I came from a devote Mormon family. I was a 5th generation Mormon who was a member of the Mormon church for 42 years. You are speaking the Truth. Mormons believe half-truths; and they are oblivious to their half-truths. The Mormons are vested in the Mormon church. They donate time, talents, money, live a strict lifestyle that is necessary to being saved. It’s much easier to walk away from a lie you haven’t lived and vested so much of yourself to live it so well. I was will to let go of my pride, give over my life, take the bitter truth that I had bought into a lie in an effort to please God. I gave up my life and surrendered all of it over to Truth. I realized that all I had to offer or ever could offer God was empty hands and contrite submission to the One who offers me forgiveness at a price I cannot pay.

  9. I mean if you believe something completely different how is that possible? If you say there is no difference I submit that you Google it.

    This is the craziest bull shit ever. Also, your grammar isn’t the best. Google doesn’t know religion. The internet is full of crap. If you want to know the REAL truth about The Church of JESUS CHRIST, ask someone who is actually a member. And what “truth” are they hiding from? Crack a book once in a while. More specifically, the Bible. Yes, I believe in the Bible. I read it every day. I also believe in The Book of Mormon, which is ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ’s birth, life, death, and resurrection. Christ visited his children in the Americas too. Not just the countries in the Bible, which again, I will say I believe in. You are spewing hate and implying hurtful things about my church and faith, with out knowing what the hell you’re talking about. It’s obviously your parents who are ignorant. They should have taught you better to not spew hate and falsities without knowing actual facts of the subject your damning. Don’t Google religion. Pray and ask God.

    • Hi Holly, I’m just a bit confused. So we agree that the Bible is 100% true hopefully so we can have an agreed upon basis of truth. If the life of Christ is recorded in the Bible, from birth, life (33 years) crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection, and then (Mark 16:19 – “So the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God”) so after all this we see he rests by the father. Also in John 19:30 Jesus says “it is finished”. So you can see how from my perspective the Bible has the full gospel account. It has the full account of Jesus life on earth. He came and died and said it is finished, rose again and rested at the right hand of his Father. He did not return again and Jesus himself told of when he would come again (read Mathew Ch.24). See Christ himself warns us against those who will claim to have seen him.

  10. Dear Heavenly Father, Our God in Heaven.. I pray for whoever wrote this article. I know it took a lot of time, study, and dedication. I pray that he/she knows it got me thinking about my own religious beliefs and strength in where I stand and I’m grateful for that. I pray for he/she that they may be blessed. Religion is a hot topic, everyone has their own relations to their God, I pray that this article may help others to come together in peace rather than contention. In the name of our savior Jesus Christ, Amen. ❤️

    • ..” Yes, we do believe that Satan and Jesus are brothers”

      Satan is a fallen angel…if he and Jesus are brothers that would mean Jesus is also an angel. I have a problem with that..

    • Any Church that clearly denies that Adam sinned is not true. The LDS church believes Adam followed the plan of God to open the eyes of Adam for physical procreation to begin. They dont believe this sin separated man and God as the Bible says.

  11. I was raised in the LDS church. Ordained a priest. In my 20,s I started reading the New Testament KJV. I found that the Jesus in the Bible is not the Jesus I was taught as a child growing up. One fact I was taught was that God Elohim came in physical form and impregnated Mary. Also there has been over 4000 changes in the Book of Mormon since Joseph Smith translated it. I have a copy of one of the earlier versions and it has a lot of information that has been taken out. There are so many differences that I can’t type them all. This is just the tip of the iceberg. My family is still deep in the LDS church. I pray for them daily that the Holy Spirit convicts them.

  12. First of all, I myself am a Mormon and we are Christians. We believe Mary was a Virgin and we read the Bible and so on. People tell me all the time I’m not a Christian. I AM CHRISTIAN. I know my Savior died for my sins, I know He loves me, I know He cares, I know he answers prayers, I know my Savior lives. Most stuff you see, read, or hear about what I believe is false. If you really want to know then go to churchofjesuschrist.com
    Everything on there is true. Also I just want to say, I should know if I’m Christian or not cause I know what I believe. And Mormon was a prophet and our religion is not based around Mormon, it is based around Jesus Christ my redeemer, King, Savior, Prince of Peace, and much more. He has a special place in my heart. Again if y’all have something against my religion ask yourself why? And find the answer from a Mormon or from the web I shared. And our churches name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So yeah. I didn’t read the whole article or comments or anything. I just buys and pieces here and there and yeah. It’s not true. I have a strong testimony for my church. I’ve been to others and it feels like something is missing. I love my Savior, I know He loves me and each and every one of y’all❤️. If you still don’t believe me then it’s fine. Believe what you want I don’t care. Just don’t believe everything you see. Love y’all peace! Btw I’m 13 yeahhh

  13. I have an “acquaintance” down the hall. I don’t reject her because of her “faith” in Mormonism. I am fully aware of the MAJOR schism in our beliefs. I came to Christ my Lord and Savior almost 59 years ago. She and I do things together, and she has helped me in MANY ways with doctors’ appointments, groceries, etc. Over ALL these years, and many spiritual setbacks, Jesus has taught me that LOVING ONE ANOTHER is our primary purpose in life–regardless of differences–even those who hate us. And to pray for forgiveness when we sin, and pray for others, regardless of who they are, what they believe, and what they have done toward us, and to believe in the One Who loves us regardless and unconditionally. Trust me when l say, l am a believer who failed many times throughout my life, but at 74, time is briefer than ever. Let’s don’t criticize and hate one another. Let’s obey the Lord. It’s the bottom line. Don’t you think?

  14. There are so many different beliefs.
    Personally, I believe that what is not of love is not of God and that is all I need to know. The ‘Golden rule.’
    “Respect what is right in the eyes of all men. “
    This is in the Bible.
    Let’s just love each other and leave it at that. I think God understands the complexity of our thoughts.

  15. 1Cor 15:1-4 of KJV states we are saved by believing in the Gospel of Jesus, Christ, His death, burial, and ressurection. 108 verses state we are saved by faith alone, by no works; salvation is a free gift simply for believing in Jesus’s work on the cross.

    The Mormon Bible contradicts the Christian Bible in 200 places,most major doctrines, and hundreds of minor doctrines. They are totally incompatible. Mormons call themselves Christians, but I know of no Christian that identify as Mormon.

    If one of the two religions is true, then the other must be a false religion. Choose at your own peril.

  16. Ok. To all the LDS here. Do you really believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers or is that a rumour?

  17. Romans 13 Re Submit to governing authorities other translations submit to higher powers we can all agree that this was retranslated in AD 312 under the Emperor Constantine and the Anti Christ who is the Pope or VICARIOUS FILII DEI OR SUBSTITUTE OF THE SON OF GOD OR 666 THE NUMBER OF HIS NAME and the entire world is submitting to the higher powers not to the highest power and soon the world will be worshipping this beast starting with your allegiance and silence and submission and unity of wearing a mask then the world is deceived by the sorceries or pharmakeia by injections next people will not buy or sell without digital tracking then whoever is left will bow down and worship Satan. Does anyone know a church who is submitting to the Highest Power our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ?

  18. I am currently heavily investigating The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. I find myself in need of a church that believes in God The Father, Jesus Christ The Son and The Holy Ghost. A church the is accepting and not judgemental. I was very drawn to the original article and all of the replies. I grew up Lutheran. Something always felt off. Most of my family now has become Catholic. A religion I have no interest in joining. The Catholic faith prays to the Virgin Mary and bows to the Pope. They are also some of the most critical and judgemental people I know. But that is just my opinion.

  19. Are people still following a religion ? ☺️
    “” But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. “” John 16:13 it’s the Holy Spirit that reveals the truth to us not man , not jospeh ! No ONE but the spirit of God reveals the TRUTH to our heart when we are open to it. We can not learn things Of the spirit by our carnal mind and that is why we need the holy-spirit. I get revelations all the time when I read my Bible. All I do is I ask the Holy Spirit to teach me with total surrender and humbleness and he does teach me and reveal the truth to me.

  20. Hello fellow believers. I am Baptist and don’t agree with the author’s definition of what Christians believe. We, as Baptists, believe in God the Father, God the Son(Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit as a Trinity. The three are one. We don’t believe that there are 3 Gods. God the Father created all, including Satan. I know that is hard to understand, but that is why it’s called faith. God sent his Son(to be born in human form) through natural birth out of the virgin Mary, with Joseph at her side. Mary was only the vessel chosen. As a Baptist, we do not pray to her or put her on a pedestal next to God. I prefer the King James Holy Bible, and truly believe that nothing can be taken out of context. Sometimes I have to refer to separate verses regarding the same topic in order to truly understand one scripture. This doesn’t mean that you should change the meaning, or the moral of the story. It doesn’t mean that you can believe one part and not another. Every word has a meaning, even if the truth hurts us, we are to heed all scripture written. There are so many churches that are afraid to teach the truth, for fear of losing members or fear of offending anyone. Salvation is a touchy subject, but it is what it is whether you like it or not. We believe that we are saved through grace, by the power of faith, that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead, and will return for those of us who don’t deny him. I think everybody knows John 3:16, and it says that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 14:6 says “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No man comes to the Father except through Me”. That doesn’t mean we acquire salvation through good deeds or works. These verses also say WHOEVER, not any certain amount mentioned, but literally anybody who accepts God as his savior. Baptists aren’t saved because we’re baptized. We get baptized because that was the first command by God to PROFESS our salvation AFTER receiving Him in our hearts, accepting the Holy Ghost into our lives to guide us, so we can try to live according to His Word. When you see us baptize our infants, it’s only promising to God that we will raise up our child in church to encourage God’s will in their lives. We are not “saving” our babies. Only they can “save” themselves when they are old enough to accept God in their hearts. Salvation is available to everyone, it is up to each individual to either accept or deny God’s grace. Satan is a master deceiver. He comes in all forms, and to be honest, sin is tempting to everyone. We even sin in our thoughts. Proclaiming to be a Christian doesn’t mean we think we’re better than anyone else. It means we are admitting that we’re sinners, but that we have accepted Christ into our hearts, ultimately becoming saved by God’s forgiveness and grace. We still strive to be as Godlike as we possibly can as humans, showing God’s love through good deeds. He wants us to help others see His way, by witnessing to others. Not judging, that’s His job. We pray to only God, not saints, for only He can answer our prayers. I think I covered as much as possible here on what I, as a Baptist, believe. I hope this helps many of you who were misled by the author about Christians. I really enjoyed reading all your inputs as well and learning what you corrected too. Yes, grammar is EXTREMELY important when it’s such a fragile topic. Please punctuate properly. It makes it harder to understand when it’s not written properly. I hope God blesses you all.

  21. Please Those of you in the Church of JESUS ACHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS … how do you reconcile this scripture…Titus 2:13-14… Had JESUS only been entirely God he could not have died for us.it is the very fact that JESUS was FULLY HUMAN and FULLY GOD that makes Jesus our Savior…!!!!

  22. Also Colossians…2:9 For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily
