Are there any mormon moms on here? What do you believe in?

I just thought it was interesting! I'm exploring religions :).

  • A few basics...

    They believe in God the father, Jesus Christ(Savior of mankind), Holy Spirit. Call them the Godhead, 3 seperate beings but 1 in purpose.
    Polygamy was outlawed years and years ago, only break off sects of the church now practice it.
    Belief in modern day prophets, that God and Christ restored the church of Christ(the one Christ built while here on earth)through Joseph Smith. Men who are called of God to be prophets/seers/revelators are the leaders of the church here on earth...Christ is the leader of the church overall.
    The belief in modern scripture aka Book of Mormon,etc. The belief is that God didnt stop talking just cuz Christ was gone but now that Christs church has been restored he speaks through the prophets. His words are heard again.
    The Book of Mormon was written about the peoples who lived on the American continent before, during, and after Christ. Including Christs visit to them after he died.

  • Oh ,and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka "mainstream Mormonism") hasn't practiced polygamy since 1890, though there are some offshoots that still do...

  • 3Happy gave good advice. Visitors are welcome at Sunday services, and the best way to find out is first-hand. Go here to find a local chapel. If you're interested in the crib-notes version (otherwise known as the Articles of Faith) go to Mormon.org. The site also have some good basic information and an overview of the faith.

  • She's right. Polygamy was "outlawed", and isn't practiced by the majority of the faith.
