The LDS have misused the name of Christ for years but the term "Mormon" was what was desired, "Christian" was not, until the value of the "brand name" became important overseas and such. A simple but rather time consuming survey of older church writing and publications will reveal this trend. get coffee, it takes a while. Ooops I forget no coffee.
As far as having Jesus Christ in their name, just because I have a sign saying "garage" on my home doesn't make me a mechanic is one analogy I like...
And I have been to the source, in fact I can go lay my hands on their various doctrines and such like the BOM at my home right now. I have been telling LDS folks like you for along time they need to look at what they really say about Christ, what their leaders tell them and what the Bible really says. They need to determine if Polytheism and other issues are worthy of a “Christian”
They also need to stop pretending they are not LDS by speaking in the third person and such, I have never understood that around here...
Well, gee, there ya go again.
It was not the LDS that first referred to themselves as Mormon - and within the congrations, they still don't - they are LDS.
Mormon was a name hung on them by outsiders, in reference to the Book of Mormon.
Of course, they also beleive in, read and study the Bible from cover to cover - so hmmmmmmmm?
