Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, LDS and the Mormon Church
What Do Mormons Believe?
The first time I was exposed to what Mormonism beliefs are - I was watching the sarcastic and offensive episode from South Park, (season 6 episode 12), that describes how Joseph Smith started a new religion.
I couldn't believe the silly cartoon so then I decided to read about Joseph Smith myself. I found out why Joseph Smith and his followers kept moving outside the United States repeatedly and the US expanded again and again that kept the Mormons moving further and further west.. After Joseph Smith died, the movement settled in Utah, the land of "milk and honey".
Joeseph Smith Childhood
During the time that Joseph Smith was growing up in New York, the area was afire with religious fervor, unencumbered from state religions of the old world. As a child his family sold cakes and beer during the traveling revivals where the language of believers was absorbed by little Joe.
Both Joseph and his father witched for gold in upstate New York and is part of the reason for roaming from town to town. They had to move due to angry unsatisfied customers who had hired the diviners.
