Nicene Creed vs the Mormon Church
My friend Brad Haas over at the Defensor Veritatis web site has written an excellent post about comparing the Nicene Creed to the beliefs of the Mormon church. I would highly recommend reading this post and really digesting the points that he makes in it. Here's a paragraph which I feel really summarizes up the question of "Are Mormons Christian?" very nicely:
So after all that, are Mormons Christian? In all my experience, I've concluded that the answer to that question is: it depends on who's asking and who's answering. They vigorously claim to be Christians, and if one considers "Christian" to mean "one who loves and serves God the Father and Christ His Son," without concern for right doctrine, LDS definitely fall into that category. But if one considers "Christian" to include following the teachings of God as revealed through Christ and handed on through the Church, then they are definitely not.
