Mormon Statistics

On 25 November 2013 I received in the mail the MRM Update newsletter from the Mormonism Research Ministry, which provided some very interesting statistics.

A large graphic (from the Valparaiso University in Indiana) of the United States depicted where Mormons lived by percentages of the population in the year 2000.  Accompanying the graphic was text explaining that on 44% of the total Mormon population lives in the United States, and that 50% live in South America while 16% live in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

What I found interesting was that the majority of the Mormon population lives in South America.  Of course this make sense when you know that the Mormons lie and suggest the various Inca and Aztec cultures originated from the Lamanites, Nephites, etc of the Book of Mormon fairy tale.  All you have to do to see this is to get a BOM which is illustrated.

It is sad that so many people have been deceived based on the claims made by LDS missionaries which sucker these people into their cult.  This is typical of cults and other false teachers - they go to where education and culture is backward, which is why Jimmy Jones was passing out “kool aid” to his members, and why the Word of Faith cult is so successful in these areas.  Satan has an easy time with people who have been living with pagan religions to begin with.

While the LDS has had quite a bit of success in the USA, I’m guessing that their rate of converts to those bred in the church is quite small compared to the rates anywhere else.  In the USA, even among most non-believers, most people seem to know the history of the LDS and polygamy, which should set off warning bells in their heads when Mormons try to pass themselves off as Christians.

It is truly saddening to think of these people spending an eternity separated from God, which is why it is so important for us to reach these people with the truth.  They are no better off eternally than any other non-believer you meet, yet I’ve met many Christians who consider it not worth while to reach out to Mormons - as if they are a different breed of unbeliever.  Unbelievers and all unbelievers, all in need of the true Gospel.
