Are Mormons Christians?

So I have been doing Mormon ministry for at least 8 years now. But frankly it has taken a back seat to my actual job which is in youth ministry. After spending a few months getting settled in a a new city and getting my barrings after 'my mission.' (An evangelical equavelnt of the LDS stint.) I am ready to jump back head in. I guess my question is, should I start inviting LDS missionaries over again? I need to get going but I'll fill you all in more about it later. Essecially, I have a new roomate who is interested in learning more about LDS ministry but I feel like it is a little unethical to ask them to come over when they fully expect the conversationas to be about converting to Mormonism, when in fact I am 'a ringer.' Thoughts?

i never found it unethical to invite sisters over. they want to convert me and i want to convert them. we are doing the same thing. pray about it, and the Father will guide you. He clearly has given you a heart for these dear deceived creatures of His. :)

You might be surprised how many will show initial surprise, but then nothing extraordinary after that. Missionaries are used to all kinds of opposition from doors slammed in their faces, to even having others attempt to convert them. I don't know how successful you will be, but I don't see that there is harm in trying so long as it is in the spirit of kindness that you do it. No one changes their beliefs by force or coersion.
