Is Mormonism Just Another Christian Denomination?


I was recently troubled to learn that on April 25, 2014 political commentator Glenn Beck, at Liberty University's convocation [1], claimed that Mormonism is simply a different Christian denomination.  Beck stated:

"I share your faith. I am from a different denomination, and a denomination quite honestly that I'm sure can make many people at Liberty feel uncomfortable. I am a Mormon, but I share your faith in the atonement of the Savior Jesus Christ."

Is Beck right?  Is Mormonism just another Christian denomination?

Mormonism Research Ministry is a missionary/apologetics organization that was organized in 1979 to propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to critically evaluate the differences between Mormonism and biblical Christianity.

This featured article includes part of the first chapter of Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson's book Answering Mormons' Questions: Ready Responses for Inquiring Latter-day Saints and explains why Mormonism is not the same as historic, biblical Christianity.

Courage and Godspeed,
