Just need some basic information about the Mormon religion..I dont know much about it except that they are nice people, believed at one time in poligamy and they dont drink sodas or coffee. My friend is trying to tell me that they are just Christians like me.

What do you think?

This needs to be posted on "Liberation Brew Threads." I'm sure you'll get alot of responses there.

Hey 2BHAPPY,

I know quite a bit about the LDS religion, since I am Mormon and served a mission for them a few years ago. What is it that you would like to know? I know quite a bit, but that is only because I was raised in the LDS faith.

We ARE nice people, but always remember, its the religion that we find perfect, not the people. We are taught, as all Christens are, to be prefect even as Christ was perfect. We fall short of acheiving that, at least I know that I do.

We did believe in Polygamy ages ago, but for several different reasons. It ended in the late 1800's. We DO NOT practice it know, but there are off-shoots of our faith that call themselves "Mormons" that do, but they are not affiliated with our faith.

We can drink soda but we stay away from Coffee. The reason that is such a common disbelief is because of caffeine. We are encouraged to not take harmful things into our bodies.

If you ever need or want more, let me know! I love my faith and it is amazing the things that I have been and been a part of. Miracle really do exist!

Oh...ya, Mormons ARE Christens.

Yes we are Christian. The real name of our church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Yes, I agree this thread should go to lib side. However, I believe that by their fruits you shall know them. An affiliation with a denomination doesn't make you that, unless you live accordingly. All you need to do is look at their fruits and see if they line up with the teachings of Jesus. Everything else beyond that is pure, human perception. I do not know much about the Mormon Faith just like so many other Faiths, but I know that most Mormons aspire to live good lives. Watch and judge for yourself. Follow your instinct.

I do know that accordingly to most christian faiths, good works and clean living will not get you into heaven, they are called works, and even someone "like myself" could theortically go to heaven if that was the case...but a belief in Jesus is what most christian believe get you into heaven and rejection of jesus is the unpardonable sin...and then there are christians who believe you must also go to church, not complaining bout it either, and do good works as well as believe...gosh it all stinks the high heaven to me, religion scares me alot, that is why I CHOOSE to be free and believe in myself and live the best life that I can, that was when I found my true happiness! To each their own!

Religion............
Such a HOT topic no matter where you put it!
Religion is just that!
There are so many veiws on different types! basicly review & reserch the bible! .........But which one?
The KING James is closest to the hebrew versen first writen by the aposles of jesus!
The WORD or term Christain means to be Christ like!
The Morman/ or laterday satins are very kind loving Christ like people!
But deep rooted (teachings) of there faith are not all in sink with the king james bible or the original hebrew text ! There wrote EXTRA books & thories of the after life & rulers of there own worlds & the many wives thing still goes on in the follwers under grown in many parts of the mid states! esp.in Utah >>>>>>>>>>>>
So do your reserch!
"Many say they KNOW me but I KNOW them NOT" sayith the LORD!
Have a realationship with Christ not religion......... Gaurd your heart & mind ! Most people belive what they have been taught by there family!
We are adults now so we can reserch & choose to belive whatever we want!
I have experinced & reserched many different types of Christainity & Catholigy even Buddiset & I have found There's is ONE GOD ! & how many chose to praise & worship him is personal & I hope HE/GOD will honor all faiths & we will all be one in the end with the all mighty GOD / we all have fallen short of the Glory of GOD!
The only way to the Father is thruogh HIS son Jesus Christ!
This is truth!
Study the Word of God & you will know the truth & the truth shall set us FREE!
Go with God!Not Religion!
Not to offend those that are into there religion............
