Adam Dastrup, Ma, Gisp. Islam and Mormonism have been compared to one another ever since the earliest origins of the latter in the nineteenth century, often by detractors of one religion or the other—or both.

For instance, Joseph Smith, the founding prophet of Mormonism, was referred to as "the modern Mahomet" by the New York Herald, shortly after his murder in June This epithet repeated a comparison that.

Historical Christianity as it exists to day has quite a few "founders". Whether the historical Jesus was one of them is open to debate. Paul was, as were some church fathers, councils etc. Christianity was institutionalized as a state religion (with all it’s pagan practices) in the fourth century A.D., Constantine Christianized pagan rites and called it Christianity.
