A very nice, generous, misunderstood group of people. No they don't practice poligamy and have multiple wives. We only try to do the best we can in life. We're not perfect and don't think we're perfect. We only strive to work hard and get through life without much trouble. We don't put down other religions, and we don't think you'll go to hell or whatever just because you're in a different religion. We believe everyone has a chance to have eternal salvation and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two seperate beings, and that Christ created the Earth. We are Christian. And no, we don't think Joseph Smith (the translator of the book of mormon) is a god, we believe he is a prophet of God.We aren't here to overtake the world, we promise.We only try to allow everyone who would like to hear about our church to hear about it. We understand that its your choice to join or not and we don't to force it upon you. Thank you, and I hope you understand mormons better.
Oh, there goes a missionary. He's not scary, he's just trying to do the best he can in life.
A member of the church of Jesus of Latter(last) Day Saints.
Many do not understand this religion, and like the people who call mentally disabled people "retards", they get angry at what they do not understand.
As many have already defined this religion in a reasonable way, I will not go into details.
I don't know Mormons are, so instead of actually asking them and saving a lot of time, I think I'll go online and rant about how stupid they are!
A person. Not necessarily kind, horrible, white, conservative, liberal, crazy, sane, whatever. They happen to believe that the Bible is not THE only revelation God has EVER given to mankind. Mormons don't have multiple wives any more than Catholics lynch scientists in public squares. Only Mormons who are idiotic bigots display racist, sexist, or homophobic tendencies. Just like EVERYONE else. And no, they don't have horns. Get over it.
"I'm bored. Let's make up stupid things about the Mormons and post them on the internet!"
A religion people love to hate.
Often very backwards and confusing to people who don't take the time to fully understand it. Most simply spew on about missionaries being brainwashed, about living in Utah, and of course, have many wives. But that's not all Mormonism is, it's only the stereotypical tip of the iceberg.
As an atheist I really can't tell you all it's about but, IMO, it's mainly based on forgiveness, being the best you can, and the future of your soul.
Shame Mormon's have such a bad rep...
Typical (foolish) conception of Mormons:
"I want to be a Mormon and have 16 wives and live in Utah and never drink coffee because I have no idea what this religion is actually about!"
Mormon is a religion that Hawaii people do not like much. Often get yelled at or picked on when going from door to door or riding their stupid bicycles.
"Get off the road you stupid mormon" "Get off my yard fucking mormon" "Lets steal the mormon bikes" "Damn haoles
mormons (latter days saints) are very respectable people. they dont have rules, but guidelines that they personally choose to follow to live a richer, more fullfilled life. they do NOT practice polygamy. they are not a cult. they are just a christian religion that believes it has the truth.
The mormons are very happy and content, and should be treated equally like all other religions.
after the latter day saints were branded morons they decided to turn hate mail into positive propaganda. To save on costs they nick named themselves mormons which allowed them to easily adapt the leaflets.
hey mormon i'm gonna kill ya, now get off a my porch before i get my cow to trample on you and your religion.
A generally misunderstood religion. Mormon is just a nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Followers are called Latter Day Saints or Mormons.
Heaven: there are three degrees of Heaven:
highest: Celestial- this is where God the Father and Jesus Christ reside. in order to be allowed into the Celestial Kingdom, you must accept Jesus Christ as the redeemer of the world, accept what Jesus taught, and try to be your best in life. mormons do believe in the idea that if you do your best, god/jesus will do the rest
Middle- Terestial- well, not as good as celestial, better than Terestial. This is the average joe area.
Low - Telestial - This is where murderers, rapists, and those who commit suicide and other forms of murder go.
---- all the kingdoms are beautiful beyond belief - it is said that a person would commit suicide to just get into the Telestial kingdom, so just try to imagine what the Terestial and Celestial Kingdoms would be like!
the equivalent of hell is Outer Darkness. if a person regrets a sins or something he did, and he goes through the steps to forgive himself and ask forgiveness to anyone that it hurt in the process, and asks god for forgiveness and help to overcome it, god will forgive it. the only thing god will not forgive is denying christ, god, and the holy g...
