Your comment that the Mormon Church does not believe in the Trinity is wrong. The Catholic Encyclopedia has no indication that the Catholic Church does not accept the Mornmons as Christians. In fact the Catholic Encyclopedia state what I have copied and past as Mormon beliefts as written by their founder, Joseph Smith. Note the first tenet of faith state they believe in the "Father , Son, and the Holy Ghost." See below.
Those who accepted them were termed "Mormons", but they called themselves "Latter-Day Saints", in contradistinction to the saints of former times. The "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" was organized on 6 April, 1830, at Fayette, Seneca County, New York; Joseph Smith was accepted as first elder, and prophet, seer, and revelator.The articles of faith formulated by him are as follows:
"(1) We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost."(2) We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression."(3) We believe that through the atonement of Christ all men may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel."(4) We believe that these ordinances are: First, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, repentance; third, baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost"(5) We believe that a man must be called of God by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer the ordinances thereof."(6) We believe in the same organization that existed in the primitive church, viz. apostles, prophets, pastors teachers, evangelists, etc."(7) We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, etc."(8) We believe the Bible to be the word of God, as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the 'Book of Mormon' to be the word of God."(9) We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God."(10) We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes. That Zion will be built upon this continent. That Christ will reign personally upon the earth, and that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisaic glory."(11) We claim the privilege of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of our conscience, and allow all men the same privilege; let them worship how, where, or what they may."(12) We believe in being subject to kings, president, rulers and magistrates, in obeying. honouring and sustaining that law."(13) We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul, 'We believe all things, we hope all things' we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."---- Dee p.s. (One last comment: God is the Judge of all, not we human beings.
