Depends of course who you ask. Catholics lump them along with all evangelicals as heretics. Lutheran? Mormon? It’s all out there somewhere in hell to them.
From an evangelical/biblical view, they are in some technical sense a “Christian” religion, in the sense that other historical church heresies are “Christian” even though defining Jesus Christ as being incapable of salvation in the traditional sense.
mormonism is to Christianity as sitting on the kitchen counter and calling yourself a toaster - neither are true.
“Catholics lump them along with all evangelicals as heretics. Lutheran? Mormon? Its all out there somewhere in hell to them.”
Wrong. If a Catholic tells you that, tell them to take it up with the Pope.
It follows that these separated churches and Communities, though we believe they suffer from defects, are deprived neither of significance nor importance in the mystery of salvation. In fact the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as instruments of salvation, whose value derives from that fullness of grace and of truth which has been entrusted to the Catholic Church Pope B16, Dominus Iesus
And as far as LDS, Catholics don’t accept their baptism as the LDS understanding of the Trinity isn’t the same, while with all nonCatholic Christians it is. Which seems reasonable to me.
As far as Christian faiths claiming that another isnt Christian, theres a vocal minority of nonCatholic Christians who go beyond thinking the Catholic Church is wrong on many grave things to thinking Catholics arent Christians. FR actually banned some of the things produced from this wackadoo-ism, and they didn’t come from LDS.
“Depends of course who you ask. Catholics lump them along with all evangelicals as heretics. Lutheran? Mormon? Its all out there somewhere in hell to them.”
Catholics don’t accept Mormon baptism and consider them damned. The Catholics do not consider non-Catholics to be hell bound. Maybe deceived, wayward brothers, but not infidels outside of salvation, at least as I understand Vatican II.
