They had inherited a state of apostasy?, as each generation was influenced by what the previous one passed on, including changes in the doctrines and in ordinances, such as baptism. I tend to be distrustful about denominations in general, but I tend to go with the Southern Baptists or the Methodists. I could go on to talk about most denominations because there are legalists in all of them, but I think you understand my message by now. The information you find here comes from several different sources: general authorities, lecturers, and even LDS-SSA.org members.

Most modern Mormon fundamentalist groups may be traced back to this organization. Your take on why there are so many Christian denominations (sin is the underlining cause) is plausible and very interesting. Unlike in the protestant denominations, the significance of the bible texts are decided by hundreds of different men who come to a general consensus on what the text means in accordance with doctrine unlike other denominations in which each preacher interprets the texts according to his own personal beliefs.

One of the features that many sects and cults have in common is a claimed communication from the spiritual world. He called a young man named Joseph Smith, and through him, the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. He is God in flesh and man ( John 1:1, 14; Col. 2;9) and the creator of all things ( Col. 1:15-17 ). One of their articles of faith is: We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. (In other words, to them when the Bible contradicts LDS doctrine, it wasn't translated correctly!) Mormons only selectively believe in the Bible.

He was, as well, the authoritative person in matters of doctrine. Members of creedal churches often mistakenly assume that all Christians have always agreed and must agree on a historically static, monolithic collection of beliefs. They boast over active 2 million members. The FLDS are the polygamists with all the sexist horror stories. Oliver Cowdery, with the help of Joseph Smith, published the first history of Mormonism in the LDS paper Messenger and Advocate, Kirtland, Ohio, Dec. 1834, Vol. 1, No. 3.

The Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century reacted against teachings and abuses in Catholicism and led within the Catholic Church to various reforms. Official publications include Church News, a weekly 16-page newspaper, and the Ensign, a monthly magazine. What has resulted is a theology that is different from what historic Mormonism originally taught. Yet the "Bahai" religion survived, and it has communities in 205 countries.[ 156 ] The early Mormons were persecuted by the "orthodox" Christian majority, and the founder of Mormonism was killed by a mob.

Menorah Ministries is a local, Colorado, and international Messianic ministry of the Gospel to both Jews and Gentiles. Catholics believe that their church possesses the Priesthood in an unbroken chain from Jesus to Peter and the Apostles down to present day popes.
