one thing I want to point out though is the FLDs and LDS are two very different things.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
For LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) common questions, see:
Also, the general Church website is:
There you can access all our scriptures, all our talks from General Conference back about 30 years, and all the magazines/talks/articles, as well as lesson manuals, hymns, etc. It's a very complete website, but you have to look around.
Also, you can ask questions here or on the LDS Mamas and Papas thread in this forum.
This web site offers a nice, well-balanced view of many different religions. They try to present things from all points of view.
Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.
Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
Thanks so much for your help! This is a tough time but at least i can learn about the religion and be more knowledgeable.
if you have any specific questions please feel free to ask either here or the other two threads or even send a PM to one of the LDS mamas and papas here.
Also, here is a link to the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies FAQ site. They have a ton of information on there.
Jeff Lindsay also has a great FAQ page if you are interested.
Like others have said, you are more then welcome to ask specific questions if you would like and the LDS and FLDS are much much different. I would also be very careful about anything you watch on youtube, that's not exactly the most credible source, not saying there is nothing true on there...just likening it more to wikipedia, since anyone can post anything. If you are anything like me, you would rather have facts with something to back them up. Also, I wanted to add that we believe in the Bible too (and use it all the time), the Book of Mormon is not our only scripture. Oh and one more thing, tired of me yet? Here is a link to the Church's Articles of Faith. The Articles of Faith simply state our beliefs in short little read.
Good luck and like I said, we are here if you have questions.

There's an ex-LDS mamas thread if you want the dissatisfied perspective.
|Apparently you will also get some anti-LDS perspectives as well|
