We ask that you read Parts I and II if you can, because we will attempt to separate myth from truth
so you will have a clear understanding about how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came about, but
if you don't have the time right now to do so, please at least watch the Video we are sharing with you on this
Page, courtesy of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints via Vimeo.
Many false statements, incorrect concepts or "myths"
have been written about the Mormon Church. Just how these myths began is anyone's guess; but there is no mistake
that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been more often maligned than being hailed for the good
things. Most of these misunderstandings come from ignorance - meaning if people would have taken the time to study
us out, they would just naturally know that most of the myths were just that - myths.
Our intent in this section is to help you get to that point.
We suggest most of all, that you keep an open mind; so that we may clear up the misconceptions for you. Then your
free will can again move you to do what you and the Holy Ghost prompts you to do, regarding this Latter-day Work
and Church. Thank you for your willingness to stay the course, for our hope is to stop this cycle of misunderstandings
and begin to help you see true Light about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We seek not to run
down any other Church or religion; we only wish to separate the lies and shed forth Light regarding the Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so you might understand us better..
We have included a wonderful Video for you to watch and listen
to. Please open your hearts and minds to what is said in the Video. It is narrated by noteable Football Quarterback,
Steve Young, and Charlene Wells Hawks and you will hear solid testimony regarding the truths we are seeking to
separate from the myths.
The truth about the Mormons (Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
Some of the questions addressed in the Video are, "Who
are the Mormons? Are Mormons Christian? Are Mormons polygamists?" The Video will attempt to explain other
myths as well.
Some people attack this Church, while other professionals
and religionists make a living at it. This can cause confusion for people who are looking for information. The
thought reminds me of Christ's parable about the Kingdom of Heaven, when He said, "The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had
found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it." (Matthew 13:45,46). I believe all honest seekers of Truth would also
give all that they have to find that "Pearl of Great Price", Hence...
A person who wants clear water should go to the Spring. A
person who wants fruit should go to a Fruit Tree. Those who want to know what the Latter-day Saints actually believe
can visit the Official Website of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints. The complete curriculum of the church is there including
every lesson manual and song. Also may we suggest a visit to the Church's
Information Web site.
We also have weekly worship services in most cities and towns. A quick reference to your Yellow Book will give
you local Church listings under, "The Church

See and Learn. You will find smiling happy faces awaiting you there, no matter where
you go in the world. We'll be waiting for you . You will experience NO pressure to join us; just invitations to learn and grow.
