As a believing, active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon), I sorrow that some misrepresent us. The Lord Jesus Christ said during his earthly ministry “Blessed are ye, when men…shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake…Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” (Matthew 5: 11-12).
I hope that those who hear of us will seek to understand our true positions. Draw your lessons from the good, faithful members of the Church. Go to official Church websites like lds.org for your information about us.
