Transcript of Mormon

by Angela Lancaster The Mormon Religion Mormons have some of the same beliefs as
Catholics. They believe that Jesus Christ is
our heavenly father, and like any father, he wants us to be happy. Joseph Smith Jr. Mormonism vs Catholicism Both Mormons and Catholics believe in salvation through Christ and both regard the Bible as the Word of God. Death Mormons believe that death isn't the end, but a beginning. It is a step forward for the plan God has for us. Rules Mormons live by most of the same rules that Catholics do, but some are different. Bibliography http://truthshallsetufree.com/Symbols_of_Mormonism.html Jesus Christ Mormons think that we can't have eternal life with God, if we don't repent. Baptism Mormons enter the Church of Jesus Christ by being baptized. Mormons also baptize the dead in case they did not have the chance while they were alive. Mormons don't believe in baptizing babies, because it is thought that they are too young to sin. The Book of Mormon The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived on earth and that he is the Son of God. It contains writing of ancient prophets. The Book of Mormon and the religion, are named after one of the last prophets. At age 14, he had his first vision. At age 17, he began to receive heavenly messages. He was a prophet like others in biblical times. Followers Right now, there are about 14 million Mormons in the world. More than 1/2 of the followers live outside the U.S. Of those who do live in the United States, the majority of Mormons live in Utah. It is the fourth largest Christian church in America. The Mormon church is lead by prophets, where as Catholics are under direction of the Pope. Mormons believe that God, His Son, and the Holy Spirit are separate beings, while Catholics believe they are one (The Trinity). One day our physical body will die, but our spirit will continue living. It will go to the spirit world where it will continue to learn and progress while we are with loved ones who have also passed. Those who do things and are worthy to be with God will return to live with the Heavenly Father and other deceased in His eternal glory. Who are Mormons? Mormons are members of The Church of Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormons believe the Bible and Jesus’ teachings in revelations to modern-day Apostles and Prophets. Mormons believe that their church is the same as the church that Jesus started when He was on earth. He was born in 1805 in Vermont. Joseph Smith started the Mormon religion in 1830 in New York. Family Mormons believe that marriage is only meant for a man and a woman. Mormons do not allow homosexuality in their religion. The Mormon church opposes abortion except in cases where the mother's life is in danger or where the pregnancy was caused by rape. Although it is often believed that Mormons practice polygamy, which is when one person has multiple spouses, it is no longer allowed in the church. A former president of the Mormon church made this statement: “This Church has nothing whatever to do with those practicing polygamy. They are not members of this Church.... If any of our members are found to be practicing plural marriage, they are excommunicated, the most serious penalty the Church can impose. Not only are those so involved in direct violation of the civil law, they are in violation of the law of this Church.” Symbols The inverted pentagram is a symbol of the Mormon church. It is often seen on temples. It is said to repel evil. http://mormon.org/ http://rsc.byu.edu/archived/salt-lake-city-place-which-god-prepared/7-beehive-and-deseret-mormon-symbols-salt-lake-city The beehive is a symbol of the home of hard workers. http://vigilantcitizen.com/sinistersites/sinister-sites-temple-square-utah/ Apostles The main rules that they live by are...
