Dear teeoh, Your statement "To deny that a people are Christian without considering if they believe in the divinity of Christ is short-sighted" is misleading. Mormon teaching has a "different" divinity of Jesus in mind than historic Christianity. Mormon divinity for Jesus consists "partly" in him being the spirit "brother" (of like substance) of Lucifer meanwhile historic Christianity has the pre-existent Jesus being, God the Word (Jn.1:1), the One who made all the angels (Heb. 1 and 2)

Ah, come on, Anton. Irreconcilable differences? Really? I'm not recommending a marriage of our faiths or suggesting either side surrender their beliefs. I'm just saying we should see the good in each other and be good neighbors! You keep complicating things! ;-)

"... never understood the “different Jesus” argument ..."

Neither have I, but it's been around a while. During the 30 Years War, for example, Catholics and Lutherans said that Calvinists were worshipping a "different Jesus" because their emphasis on predestination was similar to Islam.

It was stupid then, it's stupid now.

I’ve never understood the “different Jesus” argument. Mormons believe in the Jesus of the New Testament. Evangelicals also believe in the Jesus of the New Testament. We should agree to disagree on characteristics of Jesus and appreciate that each other strives to live in a Christian way as best as we understand it. Let God judge us on how Christian we are; we don’t need to judge each other.

There are some serious problems in the world that we could conquer by working together! Moral decay, rampant pornography, materialism, godlessness, etc. These are our enemies! Not each other! Doctrinal issues aside, we should be allies in this world of evil and sin. I accept my evangelical brothers and sisters in Christ as fellow Christians who live their lives in a way they believe Christ would have them live. Let’s do as Christ taught and serve our fellow beings, not tear each other down.
