To find out for yourself if it is a fake religion visit LDS.org. Mormons is a nickname given to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This name was given to the church and it's members because of their belief in the Book of Mormon which they accept as an inspired book which serves as another testament to Jesus Christ. There are some apostate groups which have been mistakenly viewed as Mormons which groups some would consider to be cults. This topic has been brought up lately in the republican debates because Romney belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Some consider the church's claim to be a Christian church to be incorrect. However an examination of their beliefs will show that a belief in Jesus Christ is the fundamental belief of their church.
