The “I’m a Mormon” Campaign Launches in the U.K.

The “I’m a Mormon” Campaign Launches in the U.K.

Liza Morong, a student in Boston, joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often inadvertently called the Mormon Church, in an unusual way.  On her profile on mormon.org,  Liza explains how she lives her faith:

Boston is filled with individuals from all walks of life and I strive every day to find ways to help others. I serve in my ward as a Ward Missionary. This calling is so rewarding to me, as it gives me so many opportunities to share the amazing Gospel with others. Everyday I pray for missionary opportunities and strive to live the example the gospel provides…I know that by living my faith with courage and charity in my heart, I can be an example to others.

Notepad and pen with a quote about motivation from Henry Eyring.Liza joined The Church of Jesus Christ  when she went to see the controversial and inaccurate Broadway musical, “The Book of Mormon.”

Deseret News reports,

With her interest piqued, Morong, who was raised Congregationalist, found herself on the official website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mormon.org, simply to continue her amusement with this seemingly bizarre faith. When she found a link for a live chat with missionaries, Morong felt like she had hit the jackpot. But what she found wasn’t what she expected.

It was when she started chatting with Elder Trevor Boardman, a missionary in the referral center at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, that everything changed. [1] (more…)

LDS (“Mormon”) Values: Music and Dancing

LDS (“Mormon”) Values: Music and Dancing

Christmas StoryM

usic is an important and powerful part of life. It can be an influence for good that helps you draw closer to Heavenly Father (See Doctrine and Covenants 25:12). However, it can also be used for wicked purposes. Unworthy music may seem harmless, but it can have evil effects on your mind and spirit.

Choose carefully the music you listen to. Pay attention to how you feel when you are listening. Don’t listen to music that drives away the Spirit, encourages immorality, glorifies violence, uses foul or offensive language, or promotes Satanism or other evil practices.

LDS (“Mormon”) Reflection: Life Among the Faithful

LDS (“Mormon”) Reflection: Life Among the Faithful

By Scott A. Robinson, Scott Robinson grew up on a farm in Idaho and now resides in Charleston, South Carolina with his wife and three children.scott

I live in a place where the land is dotted with white steeples, where there are morning traffic jams six days per week, and where family matters most.

Here, the shared values of Christianity are still relevant to public policy. Sunday is generally a day set apart. Church members are very strong, struggling members are given extraordinary opportunities to learn and grow, and they do!

Where I live, my family, fellow congregants, and I have served together with our brothers and sisters of other Christian denominations, at activities organized by the other denominations in the true spirit of Christ.

I have open discussions about religion within the large corporate office where I work. (more…)

Mormons are Christians!

Mormons are Christians!

mormon familyMembers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are Clearly Christians: They espouse and follow Christ’s pure and restored gospel teachings.

It is an unfortunate reality that the death or departure of a great leader is almost immediately followed by a fracturing of his followers. Though followers may continue to adore the departed, be it Lincoln, Kennedy or Ghandi, there almost always arises a division in how the adoration and the legacy of the leader should be continued after he or she is gone. Most often, division occurs and the once-united people walk their separate ways.

Early Christians were, tragically, no exception to this general rule. Following the death of Jesus Christ, many groups sprang up with many different viewpoints. Judaizers declared that new converts to Christ’s gospel should be required to accept Judaism as well as Christianity. Other groups, scholars have found, insisted on restricting Gentiles, keeping particular Jewish traditions, integrating Greek philosophy or changing the official doctrine on resurrection, baptism, or the Law of Moses. Paul lives out his converted life refuting false beliefs and attempting to protect the truth and the one authorized Church of Jesus Christ.
