There are a number of common misconceptions or rumors about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Which of these are true and which are false? Watch this brief 3 minute video as it addresses some of the most common myths including:
Myth 1: Most Mormons live in Utah
Myth 2: Mormon men have multipe wives (i.e. practice polygamy)
Myth 3: Mormons don’t believe in the Bible
Myth 4: Mormons are not Christian
Myth 5: Mormons worship Joseph Smith
Myth 6: Mormons don’t drink alcohol or smoke
Perhaps most important to keep in mind is that not everything you hear is correct. With the amount of information now on the Internet, it’s always wise to make sure that you’ve checked the facts. Too often people continue to spread rumors without ever finding out whether or not it’s true. The best advice I might give is that if you hear something about Mormons, ask a Mormon friend, Mormon coworker, Mormon neighbor or Mormon family member if it’s true or not.
Still have questions about the Mormon religion that weren’t answered in the video? No problem–send me a message.
