Image via WikipediaHank Hanegraaff posted a great summary of why classic Mormonism can't be considered a Christian denomination. The information he points out I have heard and read in other sources. I've also seen primary sources such as the Book of Mormon saying the same thing he says it says. I think Hanegraaff's post is important because some people rationalize their rejection of Christ by thinking that the Bible and Christianity are confused messes with no discernible clear message. It's a placebo people use so that they don't have deal with what Jesus said. If there is no way to know what Gospel really is because there are no core and consistent beliefs of Christianity that the first Christians adhered to. This is a lie. There are clear differences that make a Christian a Christian and not something else. If that is not true then words have no meaning. Hank does a great job summarizing why Mormonism does not have those differences.
