Understanding Mormonism

Three Mormon commentators have helpfully set out to explain their faith and clear up misunderstandings and misconceptions such as Mormon demographics. So if you want to understand Mormonism as they would have you understand it go here http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700169521/Members-respond-to-misunderstandings-about-Mormonism.html

In an effort to support this initiative I thought it would be helpful to point you to some other sites. So if you want to understand Mormonism without the spin go here http://www.utlm.org/

or here http://www.mrm.org/

or here http://latayne.com/

or here http://mormonhomeevening.blogspot.com/

or here http://www.hismin.com/AboutUs.php

  1. It amazes me that there are people in the world who actually think sites like http://www.utlm.org/ and http://www.mrm.org/ have no "spin." Obviously the best place to learn what Mormons believe is from Mormons themselves...

  2. Of course JDD, and if you want to buy a car you take the word of the dealer, if your looking for a builder you hire the first guy who turns up and recommends himself, and the best people to ask about Enron are the people at the top...oh, but you can't because they went to jail.

    I can't believe anyone should assume they know others' minds. Of course such sites have an agenda but then their agenda is there for all to see, i.e. the dissemination of the truth. It is interesting that such sites carry a lot of Mormon material, allowing Mormonism to speak for itself, while Mormon sites carry only Mormon materials.

    Anyone looking into Mormonism would have to be naive iin the extreme not to consider all sides of the story. I don't ever remember a Mormon saying, "Don't take my word for it, check us out, ask your friends."
