They also seemed very open to criticism of their faith, and listened to me very closely when i told them what i do and do not believe.

    I wanted to close the door in their faces when they first showed up, but i'm far too nice, and i know they are just trying to spread their faith, they mean no harm.

    they left me a bible though, i'm not religious,at all, but it has been very interesting to read.
    lol, it's the ties that make em hot.
    they would have probably enjoyed it if you invited them in. Missionaries are very friendly.


    Anyways about the questions. I"ve been looking into the church for a while now and studying it and i'm getting baptized within the month.
    So if i can help just let me know... I'm still pretty new to it though.

    Does God have a father?

    If so, is there an infinite regress of gods?

    Good point.

    I'm trying to envision what God sex looks like.

    I would assume so, but it's not something we really talk about. It doesn't specify anywhere in any scriptures that "god has a father," but it makes sense that he would according to other Mormon theology (infinite progression of gods).

    True?


    • The requirement of perfection for salvation
    • That God was once a man
    • That many Gods exist
    • That God progressed to Godhood by performing good works, and others may progress as well
    • That God resides near the planet Kolob
    • That Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother have bodies and use them to procreate spirits
    • That these spirits wait until a human body is prepared for them by women on earth and then inhabit said bodies
    • That by righteous living and faithful tithing a Mormon may obtain a temple recommend and marry “for time and eternity”
    • That after death righteous Mormons obtain planets they populate with their spouses — “families are forever”
    • That Mormons live healthfully without coffee, tobacco and alcohol
    • That plural marriage is “God’s perfect plan” but Mormons accept legal restrictions against it



    What about "Lying for the Lord"?

    I was raised Mormon. I don't really see myself as Mormon anymore though, more like agnostic or maybe Buddhist. I guess I could try to answer some questions though? I'm only 17 though, I don't know everything.

    It's a respectable church. I like the fact that all the local positions, jobs, are non-paid (like sunday school teacher for example). But there are some things I just didn't agree with. Non-equality for women, not until 1978 were blacks equal, and just the general idea that god exists (yet that is my issue with Christianity more-so).

    Thanks for all the information! (That is, except for you "LSD Morons". :P) Sorry it took me so long to get back. I was gone and then totally forgot about this thread until now. There are so many replies that I don't have time to answer each individually as I would like to. I actually went ahead and contacted some missionaries online. That's been helpful. For those of you who are converts (at least one of you I think), how did the Holy Spirit communicate to you that the LDS Church was true? Just curious.
