Yes. Mormons believe in the divine nature of Jesus and know that it is only in and through Him that we may become worthy to live with God. Mormons look to the life of Christ a…nd his teachings as a perfect example of how we should live. We look to the atonement and crucifixion of Christ as the ultimate sacrifice for sin that was made on our behalf. A scripture contained in the Book of Mormon (a companion scripture to the Bible) states: 2 Nephi 25: 26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins. The actual name of the church is The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The name Mormon is a nick name given to the church because of their belief in a book of scripture called the Book of Mormon. The church believes this book of scripture to be a companion to the Bible, not a replacement. Think of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as represented by a board nailed to a wall. The nail represents the Bible. With a single nail through the board, it can be turned in many directions. This represents the different interpretations that can be made of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Those different interpretations is what has caused the diversity of different Christian faiths. Some interpret a specific verse to mean one thing, where another church might interpret it completely differently and base their dogma of their church on that understanding. To members of the Mormon church, the Book of Mormon represents a second nail in that board which solidifies the board and removes the chance of turning it. The Book of Mormon testifies of the Savior Jesus Christ, and is held side by side with the Bible in the interpretation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The question is so broad that perhaps the best answer to it is to simply refer you to the Church's own website for you to investigate further.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the official name of the Church and has been since the early days. "Mormons" is a nickname given to members of the Church by… their enemies, although most Church members have accepted it and no longer find it offensive. The "Mormons" were always a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because they are the same thing!
No . C S Lewis was an atheist for much of his life, and then, through systematic study of scripture and being influenced by the Holy Spirit, accepted Jesus as Lord, and became… a Christian and a very active member of the Church of England (part of the worldwide Anglican Church, which includes the US Episcopalian Church). St Paul was a pharisee and persecutor of Christians who went on to become a Christian and from then became the author of some of the most authoritative and inspirational writings in his letters in the New Testament. In a similar way C S Lewis, although previously an author, became, after his conversion, one of the world's great Christian authors, not only writing the Narnia series for children (that have a profound Christian overtone and allegory) but also many Christian works for adults including his famous 'Mere Chriistianity' and 'Screwtape Letters'. As a prominent Christian and Oxford don, C S Lewis spoke out for Christianity and Christian principles and regarded Mormons, and Jehovahs Witnesses, as heretics, and spoke out against them. During my wife's training for ministry she spend a year in a parish whose lay preacher was a friend of Lewis at Oxford, and he testified to Lewis's profound and informed Christian beliefs and his rejection of Mormonism, the JWs and other unorthodox sects. The above answer suffers from the kind of smug Tribalism that C.S. Lewis absolutely loathed. Lewis never would have referred to any Christian denomination as "Heretics". C.S. Lewis wasn't the sort of man who spread hate and divisiveness. It's true that Lewis never joined any Church other than the COE, but it's also true that he was a Christian in the truest sense, in that he valued Christian Behavior over juvenile attacks on other Denominations, or even other Religions.
Just tell them that you are not at all interested. If they persist then get in touch with someone in authority in the Mormon Church in your local area, the Bishop of the local… Ward would be a good place to start..
They never joined. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the official name of the church. Mormon is just a nickname that happens to be more widely known than the …actual name. The name "Mormon" was given to the Church by their enemies, meant to mock them for their belief in the Book of Mormon. Latter-day Saint, LDS, and Mormon are interchangeable.
Yes. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) is a Restorationist Christian denomination. This means that they are not Catholic, O…rthodox, or Protestant Christians, but belong to another branch of Christianity - Restorationism. They believe the Bible is the Word of God, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the Redeemer of mankind, that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ, and strive to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ - so yes, they are Christians. It is worth noting on this wise that many Protestant Christians do not acknowledge Catholic Christians, the Orthodox, or Restorationists to be fellow-Christians.

You can join the Mormon Church even if you are covered in tattoos and have kids :) Jesus Christ loves everybody and will welcome you! Because He LOVES YOU!! ________ You… did not say if you were divorced or you had the child out of wedlock. If you were divorced and then after having some instruction from the Missionaries you still feel that you would like to join the church, then I see no reason why you could not. If you had the child out of wedlock then much repenting needs to be done on your part so that forgiveness may be obtained from the Lord. The Bishop through revelation will know if you are truly repentant, if so then you may join the church. Your tattoos, though not agreeable to the Lord will not be a deterrent to you from being baptized. ____ No matter how you have a kid, or what tattoos you have, you can join the Mormon church if you want to be part of it and if you are willing to live the gospel. God accepts everyone, and the whole point of baptism is repenting and wanting to change your life... all you have to do is be willing to live the gospel from now on... no suffering for past choices required.

Because they were asked to do so by the United States Military and felt it was their duty to serve their country when asked.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) has never released statistics about how many people have joined the church in history, they only release …how many members they have in January of each year. I would estimate the number is about 50 millon, but this is just a guess.
