Mormonism

I was born and raised a Mormon so I can answer the question; what do Mormons believe? Furthermore I back it up with a lot of LDS quotes. (i.e. Mormon Quotes) Here you will learn about the Mormon Jesus and the teachings of the prophet Joseph Smith. This of course will include a few accounts of Joseph Smith 's first vision and Joseph Smith 's death. By the end of this you will be able to answer the question; are Mormons Christians? This will be an in depth discussion on Mormon VS Christian.

There are many Good things that can be said about the L.D.S Church and its members. I do not have any ax to grind concerning any of its people or all of the good things that they do. My one and only objection concerning the L.D.S Church is that it is not true. I believe that Satan has used this organization to blind the minds of its members. The people themselves are deceived and are mislead.

As the Apostle Paul said
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Eph 6:12)
