    I'm looking for information on how these two groups' beliefs differ. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Christians have had 2000 years to modify their ideas and in particular, construction of defenses against their opponents. They can trace their concepts of reality back to the beginning of time, 6000 years ago. They think the Bible, which is anonymous, is the only source of God's messages to mankind, but it can only be interpreted "correctly" by the Church fathers.
    Mormons, on the other hand, know exactly who wrote their book and that he was a crook. They haven't had much time to fix any problems. However, they have got a computer data base and they wish to create an entry for every human on the planet so they can keep track of who believes what, presumable to aid Jesus with his judgement on the last day.
    Mormons are aware of traditional Christianity, but they don't think it is mad enough.

    Incredible how incapable of modifying their thoughts over such an amount of time. Even the pope recognizes that this is nonsense, and that there is overwhelming scientific evidence that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. Or do you still think it's flat as well?

    1 thing they have in common is : Mormons know Christians are wrong & Christians know Mormons are wrong.
    Or is that a difference?

    There are many differences, but the biggest difference is the Trinity. Mormons don't believe in the Trinity whereas most Christians do.

    "Modern nontrinitarian groups or denominations include Christadelphians, Christian Scientists, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Dawn Bible Students, Friends General Conference, Iglesia ni Cristo, Jehovah's Witnesses, Living Church of God, Members Church of God International, Oneness Pentecostals, the Seventh Day Church of God, Unitarian Universalist Christians, United Church of God, The Shepherd's Chapel and Spiritism."

    Mormons also differ in their eschatology. They don't believe in the traditional Hell, and in their belief system there are 3 levels of heaven. In Mormon theology, Christ is viewed as a big brother, and every Mormon in good standing will become a god in the afterlife. They will become gods.

    I'm afraid there are too many "m"s in Mormon.

    Indeed we do. The book of Mormon is obviously fake. We know when it was written but it's language style is English as spoken 400 years earlier. Only the Bible is the true Word of God.

    The only difference is the Bible is an older fake.
