Catholic Scholar Stephen Webb observes the following about Mormons:
In affirming the divinity of Jesus, Mormons are Christians who do not know where to stop. They answer the question of whether it is possible to say too much about Jesus with a resounding “No!”
Indeed, never has a religious movement combined so effortlessly the most extravagant assertions with the most level-headed and commonsensical tone. Mormon rhetoric is guided by the conviction that the only way to say enough about Christ is to say too much. As a result, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints puts Jesus Christ front and center in ways that would make many members of mainline Protestant denominations blush. Mormon theology is Christology unbound—extremism in defense of Christology that can appear eccentric only to those who think that understatement is a virtue. (Stephen Webb, Jesus Christ, Eternal God: Heavenly Flesh and the Metaphysics of Matter (Oxford University Press, 2012)
I hope this helps…
Mormonism isn’t all bad, there are admiral qualities. I don’t think Mormonism is eccentric about Jesus, or even Christ centered. The center of Mormon theology is Mormon family and associated is ones standing of worthiness, towards individual exaltation. An exaggeration of family isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it is centered around making people Mormons. If this were not the case then Mormons would not find it necessary to convert Christians, nor spend an enormous amount of resources to making dead family, most who were Christians, Mormon.
In other words, Christians don’t evangelize Christians, as one doesn’t need to. By the actions of Mormons trying to Mormonize Christians, it is implicit that Mormons are not Christians.
