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.

It is quite obvious that Catholics do not follow many things in the Bible. They look at the Church as the one that sets all standards. Why is it so?

Could someone please explain to me the Mormon faith. I researched Joseph Smith and later Brigham Young and find it so different from my Christain beliefs.
