-Jesus had 3 wives and many children
-Elohim (sp?)(God) had physical sex with Mary.
-They view Lucifer as a hero because he is the one that gave them the concept of becoming a God yourself in the garden of eden by telling Eve to eat the fruit...
-Sometimes Jesus' sacrifice isn't enough and your own blood has to be spilt to atone for your sins.
and so on an so forth....
Actually, not even close. Ed Decker (maker of The God Makers
has been spewing forth falsehoods, lies, and innacurate propaganda for over 30 years trying to destroy The Church of Jesus Christ, and he has failed miserably. And by many acounts he is a miserable person himself, in a way I feel sorry for him, he seems to be full of nothing but hate, which is no way to live a happy and succesful life.
Perhaps you should ask yourself, " Why would someone devout their entire life to destroying anothers persons faith which gives them peace, and helps them live a positive and happy life?" I believe people should be allowed to worship, or not worship, however and whatever they choose. (see #11 below) There are good people all over, from athiests, to pastafarians who live good positive lives, without feeling the need to tear down anothers way of life.
Now here are the real basic beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
The Articles of Faith
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
1.We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
2.We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.
3.We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
4.We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
5.We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
6.We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.
7.We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
8.We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
9.We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
10.We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
11.We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
12.We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
13.We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
