Now stick with me for second... Jesus' Church began at his death some believe when He rose from the dead or on the day of penticost. So the church age started around 30's AD.
1 Timothy 3:2
King James Version (KJV)
2 A bishop (an overseer-leader of the church) then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
12 Let the deacons (minister/ one who serves the church) be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
As we all know, Joseph Smith had several wives and taught that it was God's command for him to have several wives.
Joseph Smith was a leader, bishop, overseer and prophet of the lds church. he also lived in the church age. we can see that he made up his own doctrine in order to fulfill his perverted desires.
another false teaching by the lds church.
I agree there is much error in the LDS church.
I don't believe in "Latter day saints" and modern prophets, nor in Joseph Smith's teachings.
Just like I don't believe in the tradition of the Catholic Church bestowing "Sainthood" upon people the way they do.

My personal opinion is that, YES, most Christians believe in God out of fear. And that starts when they are children. When a child is taken to church and told that he/she will burn eternally in the fiery...

I feel that believing in one religion is not practical. Likewise, there is no way of knowing if there is one God, or any God for that matter. I'm not saying there's not either, though I do trust science it only goes so...

I often wonder about the Church and Bible. I had a friend in college who would read it every night before going to bed. He would attend church every Sunday. Is the Bible a reference on how to conduct...
