Whats the best way to convert a mormon to becoming a Catholic/Christian?Just explain to them that while their myths are patently ridiculous, yours are perfectly rational. I don't see the problem.

but never went to the mormon church, That why most christian get upset when you call yourself christianWell Ender's is clearly the best answer here: "Christianity is a category, not a specific denomination. A Baptist, by definition, is a Christian. A Christian, however, is not by definition a Baptist." The logic in your question is faulty.
What were the Secret Combinations? Were they rituals of some sort of were they almost like a motion (like a sign or a handshake) that set themselves apart?At the time of the BoM's publication, the secret combinations spoken of were widely believed to be a reference to Freemasonry. The anti-Masonry movement was in high gear during the years prior to the book's appearance, and the BoM clearly condemned these secret societies. Of course the irony is that Joseph later joined the Masons and presumably patterned his temple ordinances after Masonic ceremonies.
I was raised as a Mormon. I am 16 years old and I don't want that anymore. Once I move out at 18 I want to wear tank tops and never visit an LDS church again.
I am struggling to forget what I was raised. I was raised that the mormon church is true, everything they says is true...But I don't want to got to Heaven or Hell, I don't want to believe there is a God...How do I get that out of my head? I mean, I kind of believe it, but I don't want to. I don't want to believe God is controling my life, that I am part of his plan. I want my own plan. I don't want to believe in him...Can I get this out of my head?
Oh wow, you guys are all so nice! I'm going to email you all to thank you! I was worried about the responces I would get, but you've all been so nice, thank you!
/JaimeIT'S NOT ABOUT THE TANK TOP PEOPLE! I was just giving you an example!!! I'm not leaving the LDS religion FOR AN Fing TANK TOP!
I am a mormon, and I've been very curious about what other people know/think about our religion. If you are mormon I would appreciate you commenting!*We do not believe in having more than one wife
*We do not believe in having more than one wife
*We can watch TV and participate in the media
*We do believe in God, and Jesus Christ
*Yes, we are modest. But we don't wear floor length clothing and long sleeve shirts all the time.
(Just to clear all of that up)
I just wanted to know what people thought of this specific religion. I am a member of the Mormon church and I believe in it strongly so please so mean comments but feel free to express what you think.Well not being a religious person myself I don't care about the perceived differences between Mormonism and mainstream Christianity that seem to get people in a tizzy. And yes, this question gets asked all the time, but I found your wording interesting.
Here I go again. Asking about Mormons. I'm really curious. I don't hear much about them. I haven't talked to a Mormon personally and inquired how do they preach. I mean what do they say, what do they present, or what do they give when they preach? Do they engage in debates? It's good to have a philosophical debate.Mormon church services are pretty low key. You go in, sit where you want, they have a hymn and prayer and conduct ward business. Then another hymn, they bless and pass the bread and water—which you would probably decline as a nonmember, but the kid passing it won't know so he'll offer it to you.
Freshman John Bundy wanted to join Kappa Upsilon Chi, a Christian fraternity on campus. But he was denied admission because he is Mormon. "They did all the things fraternities do, but they're centered around Christ," he said. "I was really interested in the student organization because they did retreats and services in the community." Mark Nelson, president of the UNM chapter of Kappa Upsilon Chi, said Bundy's faith doesn't fit with the fraternity's members. (Read full article here.)Thank you, Kappa Upsilon Chi, for the reminder of how divisive and petty a religion can make ordinary people. Your Jesus and the Mormon Jesus need to get together and read The Sneetches.
I was able to read the first few pages of the book until i stopped. I found it in our school library. I just want to know what are really the teachings inside this Book of Mormon, because when I was already reading the First Book of Nephi, i, honestly, am getting ...somewhat bored..... sorry.... i don't mean to offend. I understood the Bible better than this book. In the book of Nephi, the first verses were just about Nephi. I don't need to know this Nephi. There were too many verses in the beginning concerning about Nephi. So, i closed the book then just read another book... I just need to know what the Book of Mormon is all about, it's teachings(please give examples, like verses)............That's pretty funny. So you didn't like reading Nephi talk about himself, huh? I don't have anything to add, just thought your viewpoint was refreshing. :)
After having read and been thoroughly disgusted by the Twilight Saga, I have found the main idea to be quite ironic. It is a series about two people who have found their first and only love for all of eternity. And the writer is Mormon. Has anyone else noticed this?Are you referring to polygamy? I'm an ex-Mormon myself and not out to convert you, but you seriously need to look at the LDS church's website (try mormon.org) and get a feel for what modern-day Mormonism is all about. They are not polygamists.
I have sent three letters to the mormon church one to the bishop and two to the church office building why the big run aroundThere is at least supposed to be a smooth process in place now for name removal, described in detail at the site http://mormonnomore.com/

If you have informed them by letter (registered is best), go on and live your life like they never existed. That's what I did."Actually you really should be able to get this done nowadays through the process mentioned. The Mormon church was sued in 1985 for not honoring a resignation letter, which is the only reason they accommodate these requests.
