01:46 am - Mormon Theology

Although apparently created by some anti-Mormon group, this is a mostly accurate explanation of Mormon theology:



Inaccuracies:

* There was no vote in heaven. God chose Jesus. Other spirit children (you and I) got to chose who to follow, but the winner was not up for vote. It was not a democracy.

* Joseph Smith won't stand in judgment, that role is reserved for Christ.

* Joseph Smith is highly revered, but is considered a prophet akin to Moses or Noah, not on a par with Christ himself.

* Although there was mention of a Heavenly Mother, I was not taught that God had multiple wives. And although God is said to have created many spirit children, the exact manner of their creation was never specified.

Although these may have been the teachings at one time, they were not emphasized when I was growing up:

* Jesus was married to Mary, Martha, and Mary Magdelene

* Joseph Smith was a decendent of Jesus Christ.

* Elohim had physical sex with the virgin Mary.
