This article is just one of many I have encountered in my journey to understand why people think that Mormons are not Christians.
Despite the many untruths I see, such as “Historically, only until recently have Mormons wanted to be called Christians, preferring not to be included with Christian denominations” (see? untruth right from the VERY beginning), I DO know that there is no definition of what a Christian really is, anywhere in the Bible, Book of Mormon, or any other historical scripture that I am aware of. How can anyone argue that anyone is not a biblical Christian when there is no such classification anywhere in the bible?
Christian is not a title granted to us through the grace of Christ, it is a set of defining characteristics that we (God’s children) proclaimed upon ourselves. It is a way of being like Him, as we understand Him, which is why Latter Day Saints (originally nicknamed “Mormon” by their enemies) call themselves saints.
