Ohhhh boy! Well I knew moronism - I mean mormonism - has a lot of silly beliefs, but who am I to judge, huh!?
But this was very entertaining:
Some LDS accepts the idea of a Heavenly Mother. Where did they come up with this??
12) They believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers.
13) The star Kolob is the closest to where God lives. God is a physical being, he does not sit on a "topless throne."
The Book of Mormon, for example, the first work of Mormon scripture, purports to be a historically true account of pre-Columbian people in the New
World; it teaches that they were part of the Tribes of Israel who were visited and converted in America by the resurrected Jesus. (I read about 1/2
of this before I realied its tone wasn't the same as the New Testament where Jesus forgives people, it talks more of the indians that didn't accept
God were washed away it cataclisms and buried beneath the oceans. I guess maybe this was in Old Testament times when this happened, before God
changed his tone through Jesus)
" Magic underwear. Mormons believe wearing underwear with some sacred symbols will prevent them from becoming physically harmed, and they believe
lots of stories about people surviving accidents because of it."
" The Garden of Eden being in Missouri"
You know, I had to stop at this, because I already know that the Mormons have some realy bizzare beliefs. They really don't make any sense.
Christianity, based on Jesus' teachings, did not have all these strange beliefs. He never once talked about doctrine of what is right or wrong, but
spoke in parables for the reader to determine through divine intervention (if you will) what the meanings are.
