On the other hand, the first Vatican statement cited, "Negative" was about as succinct a way of stating that “LDS are not Christian” as possible.

Same old dodgy, weasel-word, deliberately deceitful debate.

The differences between Mormonism and Christianity are irreconcilable.

One of the lines from the 2nd statement cited above says it pretty well:

"What does it take to be Christian?"

Acts 16:31 - Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

In the matter of the salvation of the individual soul and sonship with God, any mixture of water baptism with regeneration (the New Birth) is to mistakenly read sermons preached to the nation of Israel (Jesus of Nazareth, John the Baptist and Peter particularly) concerning the repentance of that nation into the equation.

For example, one cannot find a public sermon in Acts chapters 1-7 that was not preached to Israel as a nation and her leaders. No sermon recorded in Acts chapters 1-7 was directed at either Gentiles or the Body of Christ.
