I was having (or trying to have) a conversaton with a couple of Mormons on another site. One of them insisted that they are Christians and that Mormonism is valid because they believe in Jesus. In itself, that's a little vague but I don't think most of us would have a problem with it, given the way that "believe in Jesus" and "faith in Jesus" are commonly used. I pointed out the differences between the Mormon Jesus and the Jesus of the Bible and he didn't respond, except to say that they had faith in Jesus. Now my question is this: All other differences between the two Jesus' aside, can a Jesus who was a man, exalted to Godhood by keeping the law (remember, in Mormon theology, Jesus was not always God) be an acceptable sacrifice? The conversation on this other board is over, but I'm still curious to know what you all think.
