      definition of Christianity. I am not saying it is not Christianity, because that's not my expertise. But there are problems with the theology from a taxonomy standpoint the way it's problematic to consider Druze and Baha'i as Muslim.

      and Jesus was not the same as God, so that is pretty basic.

        became established dogma at the Council of Nicea in 325. But other churches have developed different opinions on this question. Here is what Wikipedia has to say on the subject:

        Trinitarianism (one deity/three persons) contrasts with Christian non-Trinitarian positions which include Binitarianism (one deity/two persons), Unitarianism (one deity/one person), the Oneness or Modalism belief, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' view that the Godhead is a council of three deities, perfectly united in purpose and will, but nevertheless separate and distinct individuals.
        So, in that sense, Mormons do not exist within the canon of Christianity, and actually hold beliefs that most Christians would regard as heresy, although no more heretical than unitarianism.
