Of course the LDS church is not mainline Christian! Whether you believe it or not the LDS church claims divine authority directly from God who restored truths and priesthood authority, that were lost with the death of the apostles, through his prophet Joseph Smith. He corrected doctrinal errors that had crept into the church over centuries of secular control of sacred things. If there was not a need for doctrinal correction why was there a need for protestantism, and who gave those protestant reformers authority to speak in the name of God?

They told him directly what correct doctrine was and how He wanted His church organized. There was no need to tease answers from a collection of sometimes cryptic messages written down millenia ago that may or may not be correctly translated or even complete. Haven't we all longed for that from time to time - that He would just tell us what he wants instead of us having to guess? The only way to know for sure is to pray about it. Do you dare??
