Recovery to Mormonism
Are Mormons Christians? Do they worship Jesus or someone else? Anti- and ex-Mormons will have you believe that they are not. Their doctrines are too strange to be Christian, or they worship a different Jesus. In reality, though, Mormons are Christian; it would be hard to argue otherwise. Read on.
One of the favorite tactics of anti-Mormons is to claim that Mormons are not Christian. Part of a former Mormon’s “recovery from Mormonism” involves such things as “accepting the true Christ,” implying (and often more than implying) that Mormons do not worship Christ, or worship the wrong one (somehow).
