A Mormon is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. It happens to be the fastest growing church in the United States history. The church places a large emphasis on the importance of family and community through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Mormons AKA The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints are christians that follow the teachings of the Bible (King James), The Book of Mormon, The Doctorine and Covenants, The Pearl of Great Price, and revelation given through modern day prophets. The LDS church and mormons have persucated since its organization in the mid 1800's because of misconceptions by non-mormons. Their first latter day prophet Joseph Smith was murdered by Illinois by a mob of non-mormons. The Mormons where forced to
flee for their lives. They traveled from Illinois to the west and settled most of Northern Arizonia, Idaho, Utah, and parts of other western states. Many mormons are still persecuated because of misconceptions of the outside public. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints do not support polygamy.
( If you do not believe me look in the books I mentioned and try to find one place that says they do! I bet you cant!)
Mormons are not forced and most are not peer pressured into serving
2 year mission. They volunteer to go anywhere the church sends them and pay their own way! I for one did not serve a mission. I have never been in poor standing with the church and their is no scripture that says you cannot make it to the
"terrestial Kingdom" or any ohter kingdom as one the other authors put it. I now wish I would have served a mission- what a great experence would it had been to dedicate every moment to our heavenly father and his children (that means you)! Mormons do have temples! Temples are places where members are married, or go to make sacred promises to god that they will strive to live rightously and follow the example of christ. A good place to learn about mormon beliefs is through mormons, otherwise you may hear all sorts of "weird" misconceptions.
