Q&A: Are Mormons Christians?

Are Mormon's Christians?Perhaps the question should be rephrased: Are Mormons saved? Are Presbyterians, Catholics, or Baptists for that matter? The answer might surprise you.
 
The Ultimate Power of Jesus' Cross
Greg Smith
Power of the CrossMost people think of Christianity as a scale. All of the bad things you've ever done sit on one side, and all your good on the other. Life's goal becomes working to load as many good things as possible on your scale so that by the time you die, things lean in the right direction. While this may seem right, the Bible teaches that this view is wrong.
 
Where do you stand with Jesus Christ today?

Where do you stand with Jesus today?Being a Christian is an individual thing -- a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is alive, and wants to know and be known by you. No "religion" can save you, nor can any denomination or church or organization.  Where do you stand with him today?
 
Can I Tell You How We Discovered Life?
By Bill Gillham, www.lifetime.org
God created men and women in his image. Bible scholars have discussed what that means for centuries, but one thing it definitely means is that God created us with the ability to choose. He gave us a free will. He wants us to choose to have a friendship with Him. He wants us to choose to enjoy His company forever.
 
Rusty Wright: 7 Questions Skeptics Ask About the Lord Jesus and Christianity

7 Questions Skeptics Ask As the flight from Chicago to Dallas climbed in the sky, I became engrossed in conversation with the passenger to my left. "Aimee," a French businesswoman, asked me about my work. On learning I was a Christian, she related that a professing Christian had signed a contract with her, attempted to lead her to Christ, then later deceitfully undercut her. "How could a Christian do such a thing?" she asked.
 
Are You Calling on the Real Jesus?

Are You Calling on the Real Jesus?Suddenly, without any premeditation whatsoever, I asked Stan a question that I had never asked before. It went like this: "Stan, when you accepted Christ, which Jesus did you believe in?"

The Cup of Jesus Christ
By Greg Smith
You Are The Cup of ChristMany centuries ago, Christians focused their attention on trying to find the "Holy Grail" -- the cup Jesus passed during the Last Supper (Matthew 26:27). But I have a different message for you. YOU are the cup of Christ.
 
Loving a God Who Sometimes Says No
By Greg Smith
Loving A God Who Says NoAs parents, we love to say yes to our children. It often means we’ll have fun together. Sometimes it makes life go easier. But sometimes it’s absolutely the wrong thing to do.
 
An eye-opening encounter with Jesus
By John Fischer
An eye-opening encounter with Jesus"I was blind, and now I can see; I was lost, and now I am found; I was guilty, and now I'm forgiven; I was alone, and now I have a friend." It doesn't take a perfect life to spread that message - just someone who has had an eye-opening encounter with the living Christ.
 
Bob George: Classic Christianity - Life's Too Short To Miss The Real Thing
Forward by Major W. Ian Thomas

Classic Christianity - Don't Miss The Real ThingThere are few things quite so boring as being religious, but there is nothing quite so exciting as being a Christian! Most folks have never discovered the difference between the one and the other, so that there are those who sincerely try to live a life they do not have, substituting religion for God, Christianity for Christ, and their own noble endeavors for the energy, joy, and power of the Holy Spirit.
