Yet, they simply view Mormonism as a distinct religion outside of basic teachings of Christianity. I am sure God put in polygamy into the Law of Moses as well (which note that Jacob and Abraham weren’t under) because it violates the obligations of the marital bond established by God. The original passage is seen as having only a single meaning or sense.

A little different, yes, but to me, their main faults seemed to be fear of alcohol and refusal to party on Sunday. The term "catholic" (Greek katholicos) was first used by Ignatius of Antioch in A. A few of the stranger ones that stick out in my mind include the Skoptsy, each of whose male members cut off their "male member" - to become literal "eunuchs for the kingdom of God." (Shades of "Heaven's Gate!") And there were the Shakers, who were convinced that the Bible taught it was "best" for a Christian to never have sex, not even for procreation. (They raised orphaned children, but not enough of the children embraced Shakerism, so the sect died out.) According to some sources, there was even a Dutch Protestant Christian sect whose members murdered recently baptized infants to ensure that the infants would go to heaven[ 71 ] (a service also provided by some Catholic conquistadors who feared that if they left South American infants alive after baptizing them, then the infants might grow up and forsake Jesus for their parent's paganism and wind up in eternal hellfire).[ 72 ] Even something as innocuous as "kneeling" proved a matter of debate within Christianity.

Mormonism's designation by Orthodoxy as being " heretical "--instead of " heterodox ," as is the case with the Roman Catholic and most major Protestant faiths--stems primarily from their spurious doctrines on the Holy Trinity and the nature of God, together with various other specious beliefs. Unless you're getting me confused with someone else, I've been saying this whole time that simply having a different religion (however strange) is simply heretical not cultish. In lands where no particular religion is officially recognized the distinction between Church and sect is considered impossible by some Protestants (Loofs, "Symbolik", Leipzig, 1902, 74).

The specter of Marcion loomed large enough so as to merit refutation by Tertullian at the end of the second century; nevertheless, Marcion’s movement mostly died out or assimilated into other Gnostic groups. Anyone today can follow the very roots of Christianity.

The poll, which had a 3 percent margin of error, also found that 53 percent of evangelical Christians don’t consider Mormonism a Christian religion.

Jesus sent him to people  of the nations "to open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to  light and from the authority of Satan to God." (Acts 26:17, 18)  Clearly, our choice of religion does matter. Furthermore, Wesley used this vantage point to address a different set of issues than those that faced the Reformer. Others denominations, such as the Southern Baptist Convention, which officially does not permit women to serve as senior pastors, do not, (even though there are small numbers of women pastors in the SBC).
