Are Mormons Christian?

I have dozens and dozens of Mormon relatives. They so badly want me to consider them Christians. It's so heartbreaking to explain that when you think about it, you look at our doctrines and compare them to yours, they don't match in the most significant places. The doctrine of God is different. The doctrine of Jesus is different. The doctrine of salvation is different.

In all my debates and discussions with Mormons, it's really come down to one thing. That's the focus of authority, the center of authority. For Christians, for evangelicals we go to the Bible alone. It's sola scriptura to only the scripture. The Mormons have not only the Bible. They have three other books: the book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. Plus, they have people, apostles, elders who are still giving revelations.
