comment Christians are doomed to hell?
The last part of your questions asks where the idea comes form that LDS believe or believed others were doomed to hell. The answer does not investigate this in the least bit, starting with an LDS statement of opposition, which is completely irrelevant. You did not ask if this idea was acceptable to LDS, only where it came from. The answer lists a single quotation and then asserts that conclusion is invalid. Whether it is invalid or not is also irrelevant. Basically, this has turned into just LDS proclamation of what they believe--not a serious look at the question.

This question seems to have devolved into attacking the Catholic Church, asserting that the conclusions they have drawn are wrong, completely unjustified and malicious. The accepted answer is from a LDS view and not a Catholic view.

This question appears to be off-topic because it limits Catholic perspective to strict resources considered official by the LDS church. The Catholic Church may come to its opinion about LDS doctrine on other resources, even if they do not have a specific LDS classification attached to them.

@Matt Yes, it's tagged LDS, but it asks why Catholic Church holds a particular opinion, then limits the source of this opinion to only resources considered "official LDS resources" by the LDS church, when the Catholic Church holds itslef to no limitation. Do we need to ask another nearly identical question that allows for the inclusion of resources that are by well-known LDS leaders, but are not considered "official" by the LDS church? If we did that on every question, we would have three times as many questions.

@Matt The restriction to LDS "official" resources is understandable from an LDS perspective. However, the Catholic Church does not come from this perspective. Thus, this is, in my opinion, an improper limitation. The Catholic Church may very well reference other LDS sources, statements, and historical material to draw its conclusion.

I understand that LDS members wish to restrict references to "official" resources. However, the Catholic Church is not bound to that restriction and may base its position on other statements and resources from LDS sources, even if they are not "official" according to LDS.

@Matt I'm not sure how Bruce McConkie is not considered a reliable source for official teaching. He was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. If he doesn't know official Mormon doctrine, then who does?

comment What is the biblical justification for allowing only male pastors?
I don't believe this is a duplicate as it asks the basis for the opposing position.

comment Is there a biblical basis/justification for requiring a pastor be educated?
Welcome to the forum. This site is an academic site rather than one of opinion. As such, answers are asked to be supported with scripture or other resources.

comment What is the biblical basis for the prohibition of instruments in worship?
How do you know there were never mechanical instruments in worship? They were referenced in the Psalms, and the first Christians were Jewish.

comment What Scriptures are used to justify the belief that Christians of Denominations other than a specific one will be rejected by God?
@Bye Could you narrow it down to a particular denomination that believes this? The verses will vary accordingly.

comment What Scriptures are used to justify the belief that Christians of Denominations other than a specific one will be rejected by God?
The issue is not whether or not our names are written on a particular denomination's membership roles, but whether or not it is written in the book of life.

comment What is the Catholic Church's view of Anne Catherine Emmerich - can her visions and prophecies be trusted?
Could you provide a bit more content from the link--at least a brief summary? A good answer on this site does more than link to somewhere else.

comment Does being Protestant imply you are also a Zionist?
I really believe this should be closed. Otherwise, we would have to tolerate a ton of questions... Are there any Catholics who believe in multiple gods? Deny the trinity? Deny transubstantiation? Deny papal progression? The answer to any questions of the form, "Does ANY x believe y?" is probably going to be yes.

comment Adam and Eve did not get married
Was this a question or a rant? Who says you have to have a ceremony to get married? Or a piece of paper? Or Canon in D? This is a ridiculous question.

comment Does being Protestant imply you are also a Zionist?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about because it's a yes or no question that is easily answered as "yes, there is at least one Protestant that meets this criteria."

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
That is, assuming God speaks to us in a manner that is totally incomprehensible for us.

comment How would it be Just to have Jesus blaspheme against his own Law?
If Jesus is, indeed, God, then He did not commit blasphemy, but was innocent of the crime of which He was convicted. The first word for God in Hebrew is Elohim, which is a plural form. Elohim says, "let US make man in OUR image". Psalm 2 commands us to "Kiss the Son". Isaiah 9 speaks of a child who would be called the Mighty God. Who was it that Abraham saw before Sodom was destroyed? Who was the fourth man in the fire? Who was the rock cut out, but not by human hands in Daniel 9? The Old Testament is replete with references to the Son.

comment What is the single best reason - specific to Christianity - that the Christian God is the real God?
@fredsbend A vision that one person has is hardly comparable to the resurrection of the dead witnessed by over 500 people. The historicity of the resurrection is the critical element of Christianity.
