The Neutral Observer has a legitimate question about the Mormon religion.

No religion bashing allowed in here!  This means you, asshole.  Yes!  You!

Is it true that Mormons believe, upon death and arrival in heaven, they will get their very own planet/world to administer as they see fit?

If so, can one administer the world as they see fit, or are there codes of conduct one must abide by to maintain one's godship?

Someone at work mentioned this to The Neutral Observer, and The Neutral Observer is not certain if this person was truthful or not.

EDIT:

Eh....That would be Mormons.

From what I recall, that is correct.  However, I don't know about the rules in governing.  It's been a long time since they tried to convert me...

They believe:

*  Once a mormon dies, he will become god of his own planet

* Jesus and satan were once brothers

* Jesus death on the cross did not buy our salvation, it was the blood that was shed in the garden of gethsemane

* God the Father was once a man.  If he appeared and walked down the aisle of a church, he would appear as any other man.

* Joseph Smith found the Book of Mormon in a creek.  The angel Moroni gave him special glasses that allowed him to understand the language it was written in.

* They believe in holy underwear garments, that good mormons wear at all times; and they must be buried in them.

If there are no rules of governing your own world, can Mormons call dibs on their own planet?

Because...The Neutral Observer wants the planet they send all the dead terrorists to, and would be willing to convert to get it.

The Father has promised us that through our faithfulness we shall be blessed with the fullness of his kingdom.  In other words we will have the privilege of becoming like him. To become like him we must have all the powers of godhood; thus a man and his wife when glorified will have spirit children who eventually will go on an earth like this one we are on and pass through the same kind of experiences, being subject to mortal conditions, and if faithful, then they also will receive the fullness of exaltation and partake of the same blessings.  There is no end to this development; it will go on forever.  We will become gods and have jurisdiction over worlds, and these worlds will be peopled by our own offspring.  We will have an endless eternity for this.

It is my understanding of LDS beliefs that a person can achieve a God like status in the afterlife, but it is not a sure bet.

I'm not LDS but I grew up in a mostly Mormon community.  A majority of my best friends are LDS. I've studied their beliefs,  doctrine (& covenants) at great length.

It takes a pretty good amount of faith to accept  some of what they believe.  I can't do it myself, but LDS folks do a good job of living Christian ideals here on Earth, better than any other sect I know of.  They make good neighbors.


Plus they're the only white folk breeding.  Pretty soon it will be the white man's religion.

I will not reply to anything on this website regarding my religeon!!!!!

Why, because there are too many people here who twist our doctrine out of context to bastardize my faith, they do not do the complete research to find out what ALL the links that actually explain the beliefs, so only having part of the story they Mock that which they had not made a serious effort to understand!!!

It always leads to a disrespectful discourse of "My religeon is better than yours because......"

So I will just respectfully stay off the topic of this on a general discussion board!

The folks I work for (On my week-day job) are predominantly LDS and I've found them to be a very generous and decent bunch of people but I can't get over my "Gut" feeling that the whole Mormon movement was birthed from a rather elaborate joke played on a bunch of "Townies" by a  very bored Joseph Smith.

I dunno, I may very well be wrong but, the whole Angel MORON(i) thing gets me I guess.

... I live in a Latter Day Saints bastion. Much as Paul portrayed, my neighbors seem to be wonderful people. I have many Mormon friends, and with the exception of the older ladies, most do not try converting me (too hard). I've attended several of the gatherings and have never once felt out of place or looked down on.

ok, so if someone today said they found the word of God in some creek somewhere in the midwest and that an angel told them it was sent from God, how many of you would be like, 'sign me up, brother! who do i make my check out too?'

lucky for this joseph smith this happened in the 1800's when people were far more ignorant than they are today.

you really think this religion would be around today if it started 5 years ago buy some long-haired, camaro driving, hippy?

We are ALL children of God as are they, some of us are just more obedient

Actually, it was revealed to him by an Angel named Moroni on a hill named Cumorah in upstate New York, near Palmyra.  If you live in New York state you can go visit a memorial commemorating this event. The Book of Mormon was translated by the power of God by Joseph Smith
* They believe in holy underwear garments, that good mormons wear at all times; and they must be buried in them.
It is part of a covenant we make with God.  An outward symbol of our inward commitment.  I guess it is because I have grown up in this religion but, I have never understood why people think we are weird for wearing underwear.

show me the urim and thummim. show me the sacred golden plates. show me proof of the ancient american civilization that joseph smith talked about, even though not a shred of evidence can be found by modern day archeaologists.

why are there so many new editions of the book of mormon if joseph smith said god declared them correct in 1830?

if the book of mormon is the true teachings of god, why did the mormon church abandon: the adam-god doctrine, the united order, plural marriage, the curse of cain, blood tonement?  according to the prophet, these were supposed to be everlasting?

if 'the book of abraham' was legit, why do egyptologists and other scholars say the grammar used proves it to be pure fantasy?

why does the mormon church use the king james version instead of joseph smith's revised version?

why did smith never finish translating the kinderhook plates?

if smith was such a prophet, how come next to none of his prophecies went fullfilled, even though he gave names and dates for them, many of which have since died or the prophecies not meeting their deadline?

why did a man of god die in a gun battle while in jail for ordering the destruction of a newspaper that was about to expose him?

Poink, Chill a little dude. Religion is what? Beliefs and that is what is in their heart. It is not up to you or I to question and judge other's religion. I know some people in my life that embrace their religions whole-heartedly and have COMPLETE faith. I know others that are Atheists. Are they wrong? I dont know.

So, in the Mormon religion you have beliefs and in the Christian religion you have one set of beliefs as Judaism has theirs. Who is wrong and who is right? This is why Politics and religion... I dont discuss either.

Frankly, I think all religions are based on some pretty silly premises, and the only reason we think Mormonism sillier than the rest is that it's newer.
And, I may add, I have YET to meet a Mormon practicioner that wasn't incredibly nice.

Man is as God once was? Is the idea expressed there that God was once a man like us and as fallible as us?

And is Jesus literally considered to be a brother to Satan, even though the Bible says that Jesus is the ONLY begotten of The Father?

I am no expert in mormonism and didn't know much past the claims of a new revelation by JS. But is this really the stuff that is preached?

Every Mormon I have ever met has always been a very nice person. Their children are always polite and well behaved. I have no problems with them. Some people should take lessons.

I know next to nothing about their religion and don't care to. The temple in SLC is beautiful.

Edit to add---- They seem to have a lot of hot womenz.
