Mormon Chronicle by An Admin - 5M ago

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spends MILLIONS of dollars every year trying to tell the world that “Hey! We’re ‘Christians’ too!! We believe in Christ, therefore we are Christians.” Many get really offended when people say that we cannot define ourselves as Christian. However, that same corporation is spending large amounts of money to try to control who can and cannot be called “Mormon.”

According to the Church’s website, (here and here) someone who believes in and worships Jesus Christ is a Christian.

If a person that worships Christ is a Christian, wouldn’t someone that believes in the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price be a Mormon by the same standard?  The corporate Church says, though, that you have to be a member of its organization to be a Mormon. Is this a double standard? Are they putting a burden on others that they themselves fight to not be applied to themselves?

Is a Fundamentalist Mormon a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? No, but as Christians, Mormons aren’t Baptists, Catholics, etc. either. Yet, we still want to be called Christian so desperately that we spend money trying to convince people of it. Why would we do to others what we do not want done to us?

Though Mormons are Christians, not all Christians are Mormons. Likewise, Mormon fundamentalists are Mormons, but not all Mormons are fundamentalists.

Interestingly, President Nelson solved this dilemma recently stating that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aren’t Mormons. The new official style guide for media encourages news outlets not to call members of the Church “Mormons.”

The prophet Joseph Smith explained the meaning of the word “Mormon” when discussing the nickname given to the Saints.

“It has been stated that this word [mormon] was derived from the Greek word ‘mormo.’ This is not the case. There was no Greek or Latin upon the plates from which I, through the grace of God, translated the Book of Mormon…. [The] Bible in its widest sense, means good; for the Savior says according to the gospel of John, “I am the good shepherd;” and it will not be beyond the common use of terms, to say that good is among the most important in use, and though known by various names in different languages, still its meaning is the same, and is ever in opposition to “bad.” We say from the Saxon, ‘good’; the Dane, ‘god’; the Goth, ‘goda’; the German, “gut”; the Dutch, ‘goed’; the Latin, ‘bonus’; the Greek, ‘kalos’; the Hebrew, ‘tob’; and the Egyptian, ‘mon.’ Hence, with the addition of ‘more,’ or the contraction, ‘mor,’ we have the word ‘mor-mon’; which means, literally, ‘more good.'”  (T&S 12:194)
