    Very important point.

    Not Christian



  3. Mark Kelley on November 25, 2019 at 3:07 am

    Many Christains fault us because we believe that God the Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings or that even they could have a body of flesh and bone. I was taught when a child in another church that God and Jesus were the same and invisible. Even as a child I could not comprehend a resurrected Christ with no body.

    What is his restoration of the Godhead? Can anyone please explain what that means?



  7. ROOT S on November 25, 2019 at 3:12 am

    The name is posted visibly on the buildings, but you people verbally profess the name "mormon" before "Church of Jesus Christ" why is that? Is it mormons church? Or the church of moses?



  8. Chris lilienthal on November 25, 2019 at 3:13 am

    Sum members don’t act Christian



  9. Richard Holt on November 25, 2019 at 3:13 am

    Not sure where it says mormon on any of the buildings. Its The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. Know as LDS. We study the book of mormon.

    If you are Christian they why do you practice polytheism



  11. theTYTAN3 on November 25, 2019 at 3:15 am

    We do read the Bible most LDS students attend seminary where they study the scriptures for four years. I do not know your exact definition of the trinity in my experience I have found disagreement among Christians on what that is but I can say we believe in God the Father, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. We believe that Christ will come again and each of us will stand to be judged of him according to our works and the desires of our heart

    Mathew 24-5



  14. TheHolyServant on November 25, 2019 at 3:17 am

    I have been told that and I personally at this Current time Believe Mormons are not Christians but if you could convince me otherwise then I would be glad to accept them as Christians. If you don’t Mind I have a few questions, 1st: Do you guys read the Bible? If so Both the New and Old Testament? 2nd: Do you Believe in the Trinity and also in Christ’s second coming, the Day of Judgement and salvation? I mean no disrespect I just want to be acknowledge on your views.

    Only Mormons think they are "Christians". I’m a Native American (non-Lamanite) & born again Biblical Christian. I’d be happy to challenge any Mormon willing to defend their faith. My only "anti-Mormon" material—the KJV Bible. This is all I need to show that the Mormon Christ is not the Lord Jesus Christ from the Word of God.



  16. Daniel servant on November 25, 2019 at 3:20 am

    why use the word Mormon how disobedient for any to refer them selves as Mormons ye are Latter -day Saints are ye not for do ye not belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I do not see the word Mormon here in the name of the lords church . A true Christian is one who strives to be obedient in keeping all of Gods commandments and in following the example of Jesus Christ. so are latter day saints Christian people yes. to they who choose to be obedient in keeping the commandments and doing the will of the lord are true Christians. 



  17. Robin Compton on November 25, 2019 at 3:21 am

    Bwilliams13able@Joseph Smith himself ordained a former slave, a black man named Elijah Abel as an Elder with the Priesthood in 1836.Brother Abel was a fairly prominent member that served in the 3rd quorum of the Seventy starting in 1839. He served 3 missions for the church. Another black man, Walker Lewis also received the Priesthood during Josephs leadership. He was ordained an Elder in1844 by William Smith, Joseph Smiths brother.Joseph Smith was not a racist,he was friends with Elijah Abel wh

    Ask your Christian friends for 2 things–a definition of what they think a Christian is, and (2) a list of which churches fit the definition. Then look up Filioque and see if it’s in their definition or not. Doing those 2 tasks is more difficult than they imagine, but it’s crucial to their point to rescue their argument from fatal inconsistency. If you can’t take someone’s word for it at face value, it’s best to just let God decide who is a Christian (Bishop Edgely).



  19. Selah Shine on November 25, 2019 at 3:24 am

    How are the Mormons so sure that Joseph Smith really got those revelations?



  20. metfan metfan on November 25, 2019 at 3:25 am

    So we are all family 😳



  21. mollymu1 on November 25, 2019 at 3:25 am

    Had Stake Conference yesterday . We have a new Mission President now . He is an MD who got his trainging at Duke Univ . Why would someone leave a medical practice , move away from his home and family for 3 years , receiving no finacial compensation for it ? Because he knows the message of the restoration of the Savior’s Church here upon the earth is true .



  22. wulfgar3000 on November 25, 2019 at 3:25 am

    No they are not



  23. cumomsandcureloms on November 25, 2019 at 3:30 am

    About 1835-36. His name was Elijah Abel



  24. N1C4510 on November 25, 2019 at 3:30 am

    May God forgive you all.



  25. MercyNLovelieRAngels on November 25, 2019 at 3:30 am

    I don’t know if she was the first black person to become a Mormon, but Jane Elizabeth James and her whole family were black members and they got baptized in 1847 (Henry J. Wolfinger, “A Test of Faith: Jane Elizabeth James and the Origins of the Utah Black Community,” Social Accomodations in Utah, American West Center occasional papers, University of Utah, 1975)



  26. John Hugh on November 25, 2019 at 3:33 am

    Christ was the first born spiritually to God in the beginning and then later, when Christ came to earth, Christ was the only one privileged to be born of the flesh to God. So Christ was born in the beginning. I hope this answers your question.



  27. Isaac Andrade on November 25, 2019 at 3:33 am

    Well, mormons not only acknowledge Christ as the Savior of the world, but they also follow him the best they can.
    Even though they don’t have the answer to every question one might ask, they have faith that all answers have one divine source. I think you can understand that.



  28. giuseppe mendoza on November 25, 2019 at 3:33 am

    Mormons are not christian



  29. Sylvia Gale on November 25, 2019 at 3:34 am

    Gee I posted 2 comments that the powers that be didn’t show. Just one got by them, wonder why?



  30. Jerry Williamson on November 25, 2019 at 3:35 am

    Great message about Mormons being Christian.



  31. Brandon Bush on November 25, 2019 at 3:43 am

    That’s a really good question. When we speak of the Gospel we don’t mean in any way that the Lord Jesus Christ didn’t finish His earthly ministry as recorded in the 4 Gospels. We are using the word Gospel to describe the Teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ which includes the Word of God as described by some of His Prophets such as Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. 
    By saying that the “Gospel is restored” we are only saying that once again Prophets are recording His Word for the benefit and use of His children. Us! I know that God does still talk to prophets and they are faithfully delivering Gods message, it is our job to read those words and live them! (James 1:20)



  32. chiyo irashii on November 25, 2019 at 3:44 am

    We are christians. Our name, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it testifies it. I testify. I have a testimony in this church, I know this church is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet, and I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet.

    For some reason this video is not playing properly. All of the visuals are distorted and green. Sad! None of the other videos seem to be having trouble.



  34. Ron Lifestyle on November 25, 2019 at 3:45 am

    What was the chapter of Isiah and verse?tell me please.



  35. todreaminblue1 on November 25, 2019 at 3:48 am

    so soothing



  36. Isaac Andrade on November 25, 2019 at 3:48 am

    Because Peter, James, and John, among other special people (prophets of old) were sent by God to restore the the Priesthood in the late 1800’s.
    If you want, you can ask the missionaries or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you might encounter. They will be more than glad to explain it to you.



  37. Carib on November 25, 2019 at 3:49 am

    2018?



  38. Anthony Tsai on November 25, 2019 at 3:51 am

    Powerful testimony that makes me feel the spirit.



  39. horace Rumpole on November 25, 2019 at 3:52 am

    No…read the bible not works of fiction ! They remind me of the coneheads claiming to be from France



  40. 1974spr on November 25, 2019 at 3:53 am

    Because we believe and teach that we were with Father in Heaven in the pre-existence. We chose his plan and sided with God the Father in coming down here to be tested and prepared for the world to come. Jesus stepped forward and chose to be our example and thus our Savior in God’s plan, giving God all glory. Some mistakenly think that nothing came before this life. We, you and I, made the choice to come down here and gain a body.



  41. Caleb Branson on November 25, 2019 at 3:55 am

    I don’t understand how you can call yourselves Christians. First off the idea behind the "restored gospel" is not correct. What is the gospel? Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. These four books wrote down what Jesus did and said. So the idea of a restored gospel is saying Jesus is imperfect in his teachings and had to revise them. Jesus is God, and God is Perfect and Just. When Christ comes to receive his bride, it will not include the Church of Latter Day Saints.



  42. mad 22 on November 25, 2019 at 3:56 am

    The word of God don’t need another account.. Anything outside of the bible is from the devil…. The Bible talks about spiritual blindness and that what you are.



  43. Jason Jammin on November 25, 2019 at 3:57 am

    What the difference if your a Christian and already save.why would you need to be a Mormon are even belief in it ? This is a question not a insult.



  44. Joseph Barker on November 25, 2019 at 3:58 am

    @Caleb, we call ourselves Christians because that’s what we are. Everything we have is centered around the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His Atonement is how we can get back to our Heavenly Father.

    What is the gospel? The gospel isn’t a book. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John aren’t the gospel, they teach the gospel. What is the true gospel of Jesus Christ? The answer is simple: faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism by immersion for the remission of sins, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. That is the gospel.

    I see you don’t understand why it had to be restored. After the Apostles were off the earth, true Christianity as Jesus Christ set up ended. This is because people rejected the Apostles, revelation, the true nature of God, and many other truths. Baptism was changed to sprinkling, some teach baptism doesn’t matter. Other ordinances were changed as well. When the Apostles weren’t on the earth, neither was the presiding Priesthood authority of God. Nobody had the authority to make any changes to doctrine. When one looks at today’s version of Christianity found in the Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, all other Protestants, Catholics, and all other non-LDS churches you will see that this form of Christianity differs from what the Savior set up in His original Church found in the New Testament. Many people use the argument "you’re saying Jesus was wrong." That’s not it at all. He has always been right. Man, however, does not have the same track record. Again, these changes and false doctrines found in other churches come from men and by creating such things, they distorted the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Yes, Jesus is God. We agree with that. We know that He is the same God with whom the children of Israel had to do with in the Old Testament. He is the Great Jehovah among other many and marvelous great names He has been given.

    I look forward to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Caleb, because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Jesus Christ’s church, the Church IS the bride Jesus will come for. I also notice you left out the name of the Lord in His Church. Why can you not call the Church what He has declared it to be?

    Ultimately it all goes down to the Book of Mormon. Read it. Ponder its teachings. Pray about it. Follow James’ counsel and "ask of God, and it shall be given [you]." Do so with an open heart and an open mind. Ask in faith, nothing wavering. If the Book of Mormon is true, the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fullness. If the Book of Mormon is not true, this church would be a fraud. At the same time, if that is the case then there would be no true church upon the face of the earth and the gospel would still be lost.



  45. jmoe243 on November 25, 2019 at 4:01 am

    The God Head is Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy ghost. Restoration means to return something that was lost. And because we Believe that the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, was lost with the Great apostasy, (when all the apostles of the church where killed over around 2000 years ago) it needed to be resorted to the World. So the information about the God head was restore to human knowledge, with the restoration of the Church and fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   



  46. Robin Compton on November 25, 2019 at 4:02 am

    Marv23able@our Religion was before this world was ever formed.this religion is the same as Jesus taught over 2000 years ago. When the disciples were killed, God took it off the face of the earth, this gospel was restored to u’s through Joseph Smith in 1820.



  47. Dmitriy Danshin on November 25, 2019 at 4:02 am

    Up!



  48. KENZ GUNNER on November 25, 2019 at 4:03 am

    Is it the same Bible you are using, not from the cover that I judged but I want to know the inside.



  49. Logan Cappo on November 25, 2019 at 4:04 am

    What is the Isiah verse?



  50. Mackenzie Whitten on November 25, 2019 at 4:04 am

    Mormon is just a common nickname passed down from generation to generation. I am LDS and I preferably go by that name. We are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Just as you may have a nickname, Mormon is simply ours. Nothing more then that. Just because our nickname is Mormon does not mean that we are not Christians, and it does not mean that is the Church’s official name.
