Talk:Mormon

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Maybe the heading Noun should be split: Noun (the member of a Christian church, countable) and Proper noun (the prophet, uncountable).

Deleted comment on reformed Egyptian, which is not pertinent to the definition of Mormon.


Mormonism is not a Christian Religion[edit]

"A person who belongs to the Christian religious groups related to the religion founded by Joseph Smith, Jr., The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." This definition seems inaccurate to me. Mormonism is not a Christian religion. Any true Christian person believe that Jesus Christ is God, and that there is only one god, and that the in the Bible they can find the word of God. Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is not God, rather just a man, that anybody can become a god, and that the Bible is full of errors and is not reliable. I propose this modification: "A person who belongs to the pseudo-Christian religious groups related to the religion founded by Joseph Smith, Jr., The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." Or: "A person who belongs to religious groups related to the religion founded by Joseph Smith, Jr., The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." 83.46.67.64 23:48, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Sub-groups[edit]

The current noun entry is misleading because there are Mormon denominations outside the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Dsy Saints who are Mormons, i.e. Community of Christ, Church of Christ, Apostolic United Brethren, Independant LDS, Remnant Church of LDS, Bockertonite, etc. I propose changing it to "Latter Day Saints movement".

If that degree of precision is truly important, why not just amend the existing definition to say ", primarily The Church of..."? The vast majority of Mormons belong to that group. --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:18, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
