Bible Thumper Name Calling
Personally, I back off. God does not force His Word on anyone, neither should we. If they don't want to know Him, they just don't. Pressing the issue is counter productive, and a waste of time. Love them, pray for them, be kind & they may start asking questions. Actions speak louder than words.

(1) Mormons: Would you please take the time to answer the following questions honestly...

Do you believe the BoM is even "more correct" than the Bible?

What parts of the Bible do you believe are in Error?

How is it you believe the Mormon Priesthood is the only authority God recognizes and is necessary for salvation even though this isn't taught in the BoM, & the Bible teaches Jesus is the ONLY Great High Priest after the order of Melchizedek.

(2) Do mainstream Mormons consider FLDS "non-Mormons"?

Missy: St. John also said "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.....And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (Joh 1:1 & 14)

(3) Isaiah stated "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The MIGHTY GOD, The EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace." (Isa 9:6)

Do you feel the above passages as well as those quoted by James on 11/18 (John 10:30, 8:24, & Isaiah 43:10) are in error? If not, how do they gel with Mormon non-Trinitarian theology?

Ashley: I've posted a reply for you on the polygamy blog, please link to my name to find it.

Does Polygamy Still Exist
Ashley: From the other blog {{I want names}}
It's very easy to find names of Smith's plural wives, search "Joseph Smith's plural wives" There's also a Mormon owned & operated site that lists many of them, search "Joseph Smith Individual Record"

{{Polygamy was not introduced until after his death}}
Please read D & C section 132 & kindly refrain from insulting my intelligence.

Exzucuh: Well stated!

Ben & Dan: Excellent replies!

{{Mormons may be wrong about 3=3. Trinitarins might be wrong that 3=1. Neither is clear enough to call someone else non-christian.}}
Chris: Nor is either is clear enough to call a Trinitarian a non-Mormon. ,0)

While we are limited in what we are able to understand. (1Co 13:12) God has made it possible through creation to clearly comprehend His invisible attributes, eternal power & divine nature. (Rom 1:20)

{{Tracy, Your "solid,liquid,gas" and "past,present,future" anologies require 3 different time periods}}
Chris: The solid, liquid, & gas analogy certainly does not require 3 different time periods, consider ice, water, & steam.
Moreover, I believe that even past, present, & future exist simultaneously. Granted, that may sound absurd, but if you're interested, I'd be glad to explain how I think it's possible.

In response to the original question...
Why do some Mormons think traditional Christians are not Latter Day Saints?

Another question...
Why do Mormons consider J. Smith, Brigham Young, & many other early polygamist founders of Mormonism LDS, but not modern polygamists who most closely adhere to the teachings of their "prophets"?

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."(Joh 1:14)

Chris: Why would God be "made flesh" if He was already flesh?

OK Jackie, I've used my best judgment & have determined that there's no mistake in the translation of Matt 1:18, 20 & Luke 1:35, nor my understanding that Christ was literally conceived by the Holy Ghost.
Likewise, I've determined there's no mistake in the translation of Jer 23:24 & that He literally fills the heaven & earth because He is spirit and not flesh & bones.

(3) {{we tend to take it (the Bible) more literally...}}
---Jackie on 10/26/07

Viewing the Godhead as 3 separate gods becomes quite problematic when discussing the conception of Christ... The Bible says that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Ghost (literally.) Trying to take the Bible literal & at the same time perceive the Mormon view that God the Father is a different God than the Holy Ghost requires way more mental gymnastics than the concept of a triune God.

(1) Concerning racism: If one is looking to justify racism, the Book of Mormon is a far better source than the Bible.

Regarding the Trinity: Stephen, you & Chris both seem to imply that Christians believe the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit are all one entity, which simply isn't the case.
"Trinity" is merely a term that refers to the concept of the "Godhead."

Chris: I'm glad that you understand "That (Elohim) is the plural form of God."

Are Mormons Christians
(2) The idea of a triune God does not contradict any of those passages you listed on 10/26, nor is it polytheistic.
Read Deu 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God (Elohim) is ONE LORD"

There are many passages indicating that the Godhead consists of The Father, Son, & Holy Spirit yet there's no insinuation whatsoever of any other deity existing whether as part of, nor outside the Godhead.

Are Mormons Christians
(3) If the each of following can exist in three forms...
matter (solid, liquid, & gas), time (past, present, & future), & space (height, depth, & width), why can't God (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit)???

(see "Trinity, another look, CARM")

Women Prefer To Stay Home
I, myself, have preferred to be a stay-at-home mom, yet, I respect other women who are happy to work outside the home. I believe the happier a woman is, the healthier it is for the whole family, whether her work be in or outside the home. Since my children are older now, the idea of pursuing a career has become more appealing, I'm glad to have the opportunity, & am grateful for a husband who supports me either way.
