Are mormons considered Christian?

Only by themselves perhaps

Yes. They believe in Jesus Christ so they are. The fact they have added a few saints and said that Jesus visited North America does not change that.

Would the apostles who wrote the NT speak of them as believing the gospel they preach-ed about Jesus Christ, or would they warn of them as part of the "wolves in sheep's clothing" already trying to sneak into the new Church, to lure people away after them-selves and their novel teachings? Considering the LDS group didn't form till the early 18th century, the thing to do is compare NT teaching with LDS teaching to get an answer.
LDS belief has the god Elohim fathering myriad spirit babies by his spirit wife in some other universe. Their firstborn was named Jehovah (same as in the OT) and lots of other spirit wives were involved too. They say this Jehovah became the baby born to Mary, who was not a virgin after Michael (yes, the archangel, who they also say was Adam!) had sex with her to produce Jesus. You note all the mocking Qs on here about sex to father Jesus? Those mockers have unwittingly taken on board LDS beliefs, supposing them to be Christian! Can you believe such ignorance?
As for the gospel - the biblical one is very different to the LDS one. It claims that you will need Joseph Smith's permission to get into the highest level of their idea of the 3-tier 'kingdom'. And married Mormon women who die will not get raised back to life without their Mormon husband calling them forth! Anybody who knows anything about the biblical gospel of Jesus Christ, the uncreated, eternal Son of God, knows that is blasphemous.
As for the biblical doctrine of God, Mormons have myriad gods and goddesses but they do not consider the Holy Spirit to be a god, or even an entity - just power. Their doctrine of Eternal Progression has everyone able to climb up to godhood, but that has to entail being born on Earth to be a Mormon. You may now understand from this brief resume why mainstream Christianity considers the LDS to be on "the outer fringes" (to put it politely.)

Not according to the Bible.

The Church of Jesus Christ Latter Days Saints (Mormons) is a cult. Their members are nice sincere people, but they are sincerely deceived. Their faith system was established on the false prophecies of Joseph Smith and his earliest followers. There is no mention of the planet Kolob in any Bible I've ever read, and the God of the Bible did not come from there.

No, they are not. They do include Jesus Christ in their beliefs, but what they teach about Him is totally incompatible with the teachings of Christianity. There is more to being Christian than believing "something" about Jesus Christ.

I personally don't consider them Christian because they aren't trinitarian, but instead believe in three gods united in purpose.

They do, that's all that really counts. If you want to get technical, then they are on a separate branch of the Christian tree not Catholic, not Protestant nor Eastern Orthodox. They belong to a branch called Restorationist which include LDS (Mormon), Jehovah's Witnesses, and Seventh Day Adventists--to name a few.

They are, although quite unorthodox.Source(s): Jesus follower
