Random Things About Mormonism

One of the charges by Mormons to demonstrate how they are the “true” church, is that the rest of those claiming to be Christians have split into all sorts of sects, yet the Mormons have stayed as a unified faith.  Of course, they don’t seem to realize, when making such claims, that the RLDS (Community of Christ) is the second largest Mormon denomination.  However, the LDS had many, many split-offs during its history.  Mormonism Research Ministry examines just a few.

Mormon prophecy can be challenging to keep up with.

Historically, the LDS has had a practice of “lying for the Lord.”  Such deceit has resulted in many leaving the LDS when they learn they’ve been lied to.  The whole LDS faith is really built on lies.

Horace Greeley interviewed Brigham Young in 1859.  The text is very enlightening.

Last week I posted a review of Spencer Kimball’s book, “The Miracle of Forgiveness,” to demonstrate the impossibility of being forgiven of sins in the LDS.  On the same subject of forgiveness, Mormon Coffee examines the Book of Mormon and what it has to say about attaining forgiveness.

Joseph Smith had at least 30 wives, although many researchers (especially Mormons) will say he only had about 17.  Regardless of the actual total, the fact is that Smith was promiscuous and adulterous.  I found an interesting site which records the number as 34, and gives a biography of each one.

That’s enough for today; I wouldn’t want to bore you!
