Why do some people believe that Mormon, Jehovah witness, Muslim, and alot of other religions are part of Christianity?

Doesn't Christianity stand alone? I ask this from this scripture in the bible. john14-6

Christians, Muslims and Jews are all members of Abrahamic religions - meaning that they are all followers of Abraham's God. Christianity was an off-shoot of Judaism and Islamic beliefs are an off-shoot of those. The main difference (among other things) being that neither Jews or Muslims believe that Jesus was the son of God.

Christianity is more or less an umbrella term, which refers to a rather wide variety of traditions or sects, of which Mormons one. There's also Baptist, Episcopal, Catholic, Presbyterian, Anglican, Protestant, etc...

So while the Bible may state that Jesus is "the way" for Christians, there has been enough dissension over the years, between the various Churches that there is not any one specific way. Also, for those that are not Christian, they have their own ways as well.

Christianity includes religions such as the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Catholicism, Baptist, Presbyterian, etc. All of these religions were originally derived from the original idea of Christianity.

Muslim, Judaism, and Hinduism are different religions.

Deadpiratejackie. They do not accept Jesus as their lord and savior is my point. They believe that Jesus is just a prophet. The only way to the father is through Jesus his son.

I live in Utah, surrounded by Mormons. I was raised as a Christian and I've heard this same thing a lot. What you HAVEN'T done is studied other religions to see what they really believe, you just shout out things that have been taught to you by your parents or teachers.
Report as
I was raised Jehovah witness my aunt and uncle are Mormon. I didn't agree with them so I went to a Christian church.

I've yet to meet a single person who thinks a Muslim is a Christian.

Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses ARE sects of Christianity ... the same as Baptists, Calvinists, Lutherans, Catholics, etc, etc, etc are.

First off Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormoms ARE Christians. Muslims, Jews, and Christians believe in the same God, just with a different name and different prophets/messiahs.

Jehovah witnesses don't except Jesus Christ as their personal lord and savior. Christians do.
Report as
Jehovah's witnesses are christian for the following reasons (got it from jw.org) -they try to follow closely the teachings and behavior of jesus
-they believe jesus is the key to salvation...
-when becoming a Jehovah's witness they are baptized in the name of jesus
-they offer prayers in jesus' name
-they believe he is head... Appointed authority over every man
Report as
From what I'm reading on this JW website, yes, Jehovah's Witnesses are indeed Christians.
Report as
Why couldn't we just check the scriptures?
Report as
Because the questioner is claiming that they are not Christians, and those the scripture "leads" are Christian, so it wouldn't really have helped out any.

Why do some people believe that looking down on other religions is Christian?

Christians don't look down on other religions, we just want them to be saved too.

PrettyInPink1 ... your comment is self-contradictory ... the mere fact that you don't believe they are "saved", means you think less of them

Pink, my Jewish friend says maybe Christians need to convert... After all jewish are the chosen ones...
Unlike you though, she is kidding and would not presume to tell you your religion is wrong. Christian of her, isn't it?

Mormons and witnesses worship Jesus as their savior, that makes them Christian. I have never in my life heard someone call a Muslim a Christian.

A Muslim is not a Christian, but simply a Muslim. Muslims do not follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, which is how they are not Christians. However Jehovah's Witnesses, and Mormons, as well as Presbyterians, are all Christians because they believe in god and believe Jesus died for the sins of man.

Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses ARe Christians. There are nearly 40,000 denominations of Christianity.

Muslims, Christians, and Jews all believe in the Abrahamic god but are not the same religion.

Because Mormons and Witnesses accept Christ as their personal savior. Why do you think they aren't Christian? Are you just parroting something someone else told you?
-
Muslims do not consider themselves Christian, they think that Jesus was only a prophet, not the son of God.
-
You really need to question the knowledge of however is telling you this stuff. They obviously know very little about it.

All of your gods stem from Abraham. Islam is a little more different than the others but its all bible religion with minor differences.

Then why does the bible say there is only one true God? They all can't stem from Abraham.

They all do- learn your history- even biblical scholars don't debate this.

Simply because people want it simple. Most will believe everything they are told by a person they respect. Think about, many evangelist for many years have said "say the sinners prayer to be saved" or " just accept Christ into your heart to be saved" and because it's easy and requires no effort, people say "ok" never looking for themselves to find that Christ or His apostles ever approved or taught any such thing.

I know for a fact that Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus is their savior. I'm plagued by their visits constantly and my sister is a Jehovah's Witness who likes to preach. A lot. Jehovah's Witnesses are Christian. That is a fact. Muslims are not christian. Muslims are not Christian because they have a third prophet. Just like Jews are not Christian because they only believe in the third prophet, and do not believe that Jesus is God's son. Mormons also believe in Jesus and accept him as their savior. Christians are defined by their belief in Jesus, so any denomination that accepts Jesus as their savior and worships the Abrahamic God is Christian.
