Thank you, truthwarrior. This was an interesting read to me.

Three generations of my godmother's family converted to Mormonism en masse when I was in middle school. She took me to church for a while since I wasn't a churchgoer anywhere else. I even went to a Mormon conference and heard their revered 'prophet' Spencer W. Kimball. My mother eventually got fed up with '20-year-old-elders' and made me stop going.

It's telling that they never told me about their special theory about heaven despite telling me it was different than Christians. They just kept saying, "You wouldn't understand." I think they wanted me to be baptized first but my mom wouldn't allow it.

I found John D. Lee's book. http://www.amazon.com/Mormonism-Unveiled-Confession-Complete-Brigham/dp/0826345670/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276804532&sr=8-1

I found another great resource for those looking to leave the Mormon Church or questioning it.

I am reading a book at moment about the Mormon Lafferty brothers who murdered a woman and her baby in 1984 because they had a "revelation from god" that they needed to do so. It also goes into detail about the mormon church, how it was founded and all the different sects which have split off. ( it's by Jon Krakauer and called "Under the banner of Heaven") The whole church is a huge deception of Satan - he has them wrapped round his little finger. It's very shocking.

There is an excellent video called "The Bible vs. Joseph Smith" we watched it at our church, good stuff!

It is a very shocking and disturbing book. I've read it and it just really portrays the evil origins of Joseph Smith and mormonism.

It's not for the faint of heart -- and many may find it offensive, but Krakauer is one of my favorite authors and it's a good read for folks who are prepared for the graphic portrayal of the tragedies that come from this cult.

Yes - thankfully I love a good gritty book :) I read one about the life of Charles Manson not long ago and everyone thought I was nuts - "How can you READ that?!" they all asked me!

I am asking this question out of curiosity, I don't want to become Mormon or anything...I'm just curious about it because I hear about it all of the time.

What is the difference between being Mormon and being just Christian with no denomination? I remember somebody here saying before that the Mormon religion is based on false teaching- what is that false teaching? What do they teach that is wrong?

Wander over to the "Modern Cults and Religions" section on the board and do a search for Mormanism. There are PLENTY of great resources there and I'm sure all of your questions will be answered!

What do they teach that's wrong? Try the Book of Mormon. God physically having sex with Mary. Each planet has its own god and when you die, you get to be one . . . the list goes on.
