10 Things People Ask Google About "The Mormons" (And the Answers)

Question 4: "Are Mormons Christians?"

Answer: Yes.

From Mormon.org:
"Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. He is the center of our faith and the head of our Church.”



Question 5: "Is Mormonism a cult?"

Answer: No.

From Mormon.org:
"Why do some call Mormonism a cult? One definition listed for ‘cult’ in Webster’s Dictionary is 'a religion regarded as unorthodox.' Since the roots of Mormonism are not a break off from the Catholic or Protestant churches, it is seen by some as 'unorthodox.' The 'cult' label is usually applied by Church opponents attempting to criticize or discredit the Church. However, sometimes it’s simply a matter of characterization that has grown up over time by the lack of understanding. Such misunderstandings often vanish when people begin to realize the commonality of what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints really teaches and believes. That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world whom we love and worship. When people begin to see and recognize these things about Mormons, then their opinion of the Church usually changes, and old beliefs are replaced with new understanding."

Question 6: "Is Mormonism true?"

Answer: Yes, it is.

This may be the only question I cannot site an official source for since discovering the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints depends entirely on a person's faith and desire to ask God to reveal the truth unto them.

From Mormon.org:
"God is the source of all truth. He loves you and wants to answer your questions. He will help you recognize the truth as you sincerely seek it and ask Him for guidance. Sincerely pray to your Heavenly Father, ask Him if what you are learning is true. Continue to study and give thoughtful consideration to what you are learning. Listen with your heart for … feelings of inspiration from the Holy Ghost, who will to whisper the truth to your spirit and mind."

Question 7: "Is Mormon trademarked?"

Answer: Sometimes.

From Wikipedia:
"In some countries, 'Mormon' and some phrases including the term are registered trademarks owned by IRI. In 2002, the LDS Church applied for a trademark in the United States on 'Mormon' as applied to religious services; however, the United States Patent and Trademark Office rejected the application, stating that the term 'Mormon' was too generic, and is popularly understood as referring to a particular kind of church, similar to 'Presbyterian' or 'Methodist,' rather than a service mark."
