Why the LDS Church is a Cult of Christianity: Theological Differences Between Christian and LDS DoctrinesIntroduction The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) claims to be the true Christian church.
Every religion has unique beliefs.
The Mormon Church - officially, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint - considers itself not just a Christian denomination, but rather the only true expression of Christianity . However, the history, theology and practices of Mormonism show this religious movement to be outside of orthodox Christianity.
Joseph Smith, the first prophet and president of the Church, said: "The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the apostles and prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it."

An Excerpt From The Book The Changing World of Mormonism by Gerlad and Sandra Tanner The Temple Ceremony and Masonry Apostle Bruce R. McConkie says the ordinances performed in the temple "were given in modern times to the Prophet Joseph Smith by revelation, many things connected with them being translated by the prophet from the papyrus on which the Book of Abraham was recorded" (Mormon Doctrine, 1966, p.779).
