Short answer: It depends on the Mormon. The Church has no official view on other organizations except for what is contained in the eleventh Article of Faith: "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may." ...

The the Word of Wisdom was originally given as a revelation to Joseph Smith and recorded in Doctrine and Covenants 89: That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good...And again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly...And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly...And again, verily I say unto ...

As been correctly stated, heaven can mean multiple things to Mormons. Place of the righteous, pre-judgement Earth. Jesus said to the thief on the cross, "To day shalt thou be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43). Yet days later, when he appeared to Mary, he said "I am not yet ascended to my Father" (John 20:17). Mormons believe that the afterlife ...

LDS belief is in direct opposition to Islamic belief. Mormons violate the entire basis of Islam called Tawheed or the oneness of Allah.

The core difference between LDS doctrine and Protestantism really is the core of Mormonism. Protestants believe that the Church as established by Christ fell into apostasy and needed to be reformed, requiring a return to the true doctrine of Jesus Christ by adhering closely to the doctrines described in the Bible. Latter-Day Saints, on the other hand, ...

I currently serve as a Bishop in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I wore a beard before I was called to serve in this capacity. I was not required to, nor was I asked to shave. I shaved none the less as it seemed like the appropriate thing to do. I know of only 2 instances where the male members are required to be clean shaven. As a full ...

This is a really good question. We might not always find the answers to our questions from the Bible. We don't always know what Gods plans are. Deut. 4:2. You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it; that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. (RSV) This was said in the 3rd book of the Old ...
