Mor·mon

The book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, believed by members of the church to be an abridgment by a prophet as a record of certain ancient peoples in America, written on golden plates, and discovered and translated (1827–30) by Joseph Smith.

Mormons believe that the LDS Church is the only true church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church all other churches (Presbyterians, Baptists, and Methodists) are wrong. Those of traditional Christianity have adopted "pagan beliefs" and are part of "false Christianity". One either belongs to "the church of the Lamb of God" or to "the church of the devil". They say that Joseph Smith taught that everybody but faithful Mormons will be damned. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is absolutely indispensable to our salvation. No supposed personal relationship with Jesus, not a commitment to the gospel, not even a high level of Christian conduct in society can compensate for what is to be found in the Church".(Cite)

History

The Latter Day Saint movement is a religious movement within Christianity that arose during the Second Great Awakening in the early 19th century and that led to the set of doctrines, practices, and cultures called Mormonism and to the existence of numerous Latter Day Saint churches. Its history is characterized by intense controversy and persecution in reaction to some of the movement's doctrines and practices and their relationship to mainstream Christianity (see Mormonism and Christianity). The purpose of this article is to give an overview of the different groups, beliefs, and denominations that began with the influence of Joseph Smith. The founder of the Latter Day Saint movement was Joseph Smith, Jr., who was raised in the Burned-over district of Upstate New York. He claimed that, in response to prayer, he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ, as well as angels and other visions. This eventually led him to a restoration of Christian doctrine that, he said, was lost after the early Christian apostles were killed. In addition, several early leaders made marked doctrinal and leadership contributions to the movement, including Oliver Cowdery, Sidney Rigdon, and Brigham Young. Modern-day revelation from God continues to be a principal belief of the Mormon faith. (Cite)

Famous religious quotes

“Men will be held accountable for the things which they have and not for the things they have not. … All the light and intelligence communicated to them from their beneficent creator, whether it is much or little, by the same they in justice will be judged, and … they are required to yield obedience and improve upon that and that only which is given, for man is not to live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”

Joseph Smith, Teachings of Presidents of the Church:(2007)

“When our wagon gets stuck in the mud, God is much more likely to assist the man who gets out to push than the man who merely raises his voice in prayer—no matter how eloquent the oration.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf
