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?
