If the "Code of Whites" refers to anything racial, then I can answer definitively that no, the code of whites is NOT enforced in the Mormon Church. The Church turned its back on all racial issues in 1970, and they have not looked back.
If the "Code of Whites" has something to do with the white clothing that Mormons wear under their street clothes or in the temple, then I have no idea, and this answer should be copied to the discussion page, so that this question will appear unanswered for further contributors.
The Mormons' belief did not end. The "Mormon" church, which is a nickname for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is still a worldwide growing church. You can learn more about the Mormon religion by visiting www.mormon.org.
No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) stopped allowing it's members to have more than one wife over 120 years ago in October 1890. Anyone found practicing polygamy since then has been kicked out of the Church. The only way that a Mormon may marry more than once is if their spouse dies or if they are divorced. There were some who disagreed with this new policy who left the Mormon church to begin their own groups. Many of these groups still exist today and do still practice polygamy. Sometimes these groups are called "Fundamentalist Mormons" because they broke off the of the Mormon church, however they are not affiliated with the Mormon church in any way and have tried to distance themselves from the Mormon Church as much as possible.
Brendon Urie, the lead singer of Panic at the Disco, was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) but stopped attending services after graduating high school. Although he is not currently a practicing Mormon, he has not had his membership revoked and is still technically a member of the Church.
0%. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" Church) have been forbidden to practice polygamy for over 120 years. The practice of polygamy in the Mormon church was abolished in October 1890, and since that time anyone found entering into a polygamous marriage has been excommunicated from the Church. Those who disagreed with the polygamy ban broke away from the Mormon Church and started their own groups. Many of these groups are still in existence today. They sometimes are called "Mormon Fundamentalists", but they are not affiliated with the Mormon church and both groups (the Mormons and the Fundamentalists) see each other as apostates and don't want anything to do with each other.
The Catholic Church does not accept any other church as the true Christian faith. However, the Catholic Church has been very gracious in working together with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) on many projects and accepting them as a friend and ally on both faith and moral issues. For the most part, the Catholic and Mormon churches get along very well, both locally and internationally. The Catholic Church has said that they do not accept the practice of Mormon baptism for the dead for those who were baptized Catholics, and that they do not want local parishes or congregations releasing their record books to the Mormon Church for that purpose. Catholic parishes still welcome individual Mormons researching their own ancestors, but do not allow the Mormon Church to copy their records in bulk. The Mormon Church understands their concern and has not pressed the issue.
Yes. Kody Brown served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in San Antonio, Texas. While he was away, his parents converted to the Apostolic United Brethren. When Kody returned, he left the Mormon church and joined the Apostolic United Brethren with his parents. He and his family still belong to that church.
No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) banned the practice of polygamy over 120 years ago, in 1890. Anyone found practicing polygamy since that time has been excommunicated from the Church. There were some who disagreed with this ban and left the Mormon church to form their own groups. Many of these groups still exist today and are sometimes referred to as "Mormon Fundamentalists." These groups are not affiliated with the regular Mormon Church and believe that the Mormon Church has left God's way.

I'm just learning about the mormons religon but I do not thank they have a differnet beleif then any other mormons. They come from all around to teach us the good and great , powerful lord , jesus christ & will all ways do the same belief to all persons of the relgion. -------- another answer: There are many small groups which have split off from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) for different reasons. Some people still consider members of these groups Mormon because they still believe in the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, however there are some major differences between them and the original mainstream Mormon church. The largest of these breakoff groups are the Community of Christ, the FLDS, and the Apostolic United Brethren. The Mormon Church considers these to be apostate groups and does not accept them as Mormon.
Actually, "Mormon" is the new name. The official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This has been their official name since 1838. Prior to this they were sometimes known as the Church of Christ (1830-1834) or as the Church of Latter Day Saints (1834-1838). The title "Mormon" was a nickname given to them by their enemies, mocking them for their belief in the Book of Mormon. Mormons have since embraced the name and accept "Mormon" as an appropriate, although informal, nickname. However, Mormons still prefer to be called "Latter-day Saints" or "LDS" rather than "Mormon". Generally, it is acceptable to call the followers "Mormons", but it is not appropriate to call the church the "Mormon Church".
'Jack Mormon' is a slang term used in Mormon culture originally to describe a friend of the LDS Church* who was not a member. Over time, the term came to be applied to those who are members of the church but do not follow the tenets or lifestyle of the faith. For example, a Mormon who drinks alcohol and coffee but still attends church might be a Jack Mormon. So might an individual who believes in the faith, but has stopped attending meetings. The term has fallen into disuse in recent years, and such individuals are now commonly described as "less active" or "inactive" Saints. * The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often nicknamed the Mormon church.
Kelly Clarkson was never a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church). Perhaps you are confusing her with another American Idol contestant who is Mormon? Mormon American Idol contestants include David Archuleta, Kenzie Hall, Jon Peter Lewis, Carmen Rasmussen, and Brooke White.
"Mormon Underwear" are also known as garments. These garments are worn by members of the LDS church who have entered the temple and made covenants with the Lord. The garments are a reminder and an outward expression of those covenants made with God. There are MANY LDS members who have never been through the temple but are still active members of the Church. No... "Mormon Underwear" or GARMENTS are NOT required to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I don't think that Julianne Hough could be classified as a "Jack Mormon". A "Jack Mormon" is usually someone that is a.) a member who attends meetings but doesn't necessarily live the lifestyle of a Mormon, perhaps they drink coffee, smoke, or dress immodestly but still participate in their congregation; or b.) a non-member who often participates with and supports their local Mormon congregation although they are not officially Mormon. Generally, the lifestyles of both types of "Jack Mormons" are very similar, the only difference is their membership status. Julianne Hough is more accurately considered a non-practicing or inactive Mormon. While she is still officially a member of the Church and has not requested that her name be removed from Church records, she does not participate in congregation services or live the lifestyle expected of a Mormon. She has less affiliation and participation with the church than a "Jack Mormon" would. Most likely she would say that she was raised Mormon, but no longer practices the faith.
No, it is not true. I'm Mormon and plenty of my Mormon friends have left the church and are still welcome with their families. Other members of the families might be disappointed (as is the case with any religious family,) but ultimately we are taught that family is important and you should love them no matter what their choices are. Also, even if someone has left the Church, they are welcome at any time to participate in worship services and activities, just as all members of the public are. Church members strive to emulate Jesus Christ - who said that we should love everyone! They do NOT 'exile' or 'shun' people. Someone who is "excommunicated" from the Church has simply had their name taken off the official records of the Church. They are still welcome to participate in Church services and activities.
The first city founded by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) that is still in existence today is Nauvoo, Illinois.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) discontinued the practice of polygamy in the United States in 1890 and internationally in 1903. Anyone found entering into a polygamous marriage since that time has been excommunicated from the church. The polygamy ban caused some polygamy supporters to split from the church and create their own groups, many of which are still in existence today. Members of these groups often refer to themselves as "Mormon Fundamentalists" although they are not affiliated with the mainstream Mormon church.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) began in 1830, so there was no Mormon community in 1829. The period of 1830 to 1846 is a very distinct period in Mormon history. During this time, Church headquarters and the bulk of its members moved from state to state in search of religious freedom. They moved from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois. Mormon settlements also began in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska. Each time they settled, they were forced out by persecution and violence. In 1847, the church headquarters moved to Utah, where it has been located ever since. This period is also unique in Mormon history because the bulk of modern Mormon practices and doctrine stem from this period. Joseph Smith, the founder of the church, was killed in 1844. The modern church still follows the same doctrines and practices that he put in place and has made relatively few changes since that time.
No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the â€œMormonâ€ church) discontinued the practice of polygamy in the United States in 1890 and internationally in 1903. Anyone found entering into a polygamous marriage since that time has been excommunicated from the church. The polygamy ban caused some polygamy supporters to split from the church and create their own groups, many of which are still in existence today. Members of these groups often refer to themselves as â€œMormon Fundamentalistsâ€, although they are not affiliated with the mainstream Mormon church.
Many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) who say they have 'left' have really just stopped attending meetings. Their names are still on church records and the Church still counts them as Mormons - they have not technically left. However, there are many who really do leave - that is, they have their names removed from Church records. Of course, this number varies from year to year. The Church does not report this number, but it can be estimated through the other statistics that the Church publishes each April. Unfortunately, the number will also include the number of Mormons who died and had their names removed from Church records in that way. For example, in 2009, Church membership increased from 13,508,509 to 13,824,854. That's an increase of 316,345 people. There were 280,106 converts baptized and 119,722 children born. That is 399,828 people. So we can assume 83,483 people either died or had their names removed from Mormon Church records in 2009.
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) believe that parents are responsible for ensuring their children receive a proper education. The majority of Mormon children attend regular public schools. A growing number of Mormon children attend private schools or are homeschooled, but are still a minority. What type of schooling the children receive is a decision made between them and their parents. Often, those who attend public and private schools also have supplemental teaching at home or through church programs for religious education.
Yes; and you may marry someone of another faith and still remain in good standing in the Church.
"Mormon" is a nickname for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are Mormons. The nickname was originally a derogatory slur based on their belief in the Book of Mormon, which they use as scripture in addition to the Bible. However, the church and most of it's members have since embraced the nickname (as evidenced by the church's official website, Mormon.org) although they still prefer that the full name of the church or the abbreviation LDS be used.
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) are not forced to follow the guidelines and standards of the Church. The Church teaches the standards of the Church thoroughly, and then allows the members to make their own decisions. While the Church excommunicates those who commit big sins, such as murder and adultry, for small things like dressing immodestly, there is no Church consequense. This is especially true of teens, young adults, and recent converts, as they are still growing in their convictions. Either this Mormon is not strong or devout in her faith, or she has not been taught well. That doesn't mean she isn't a Mormon, she just has a different level of adherence than others. To better understand the Church's standards of modest dressing, see the "Related Links" below.
Actually, "Mormon" is the other name! The official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It's members prefer to be called LDS or Latter-day Saints. The nickame "Mormon" was given to them by their enemies and was intended to mock their belief in the Book of Mormon. Today, most have embraced the name and are not offended by it, but they still prefer their official name, Latter-day Saints or LDS.
I guess I don't really know what your asking, but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) teaches chastity and virtue to the unmarried; sexual activities are to be kept within marriage. So if a Mormon has never married, yes, they are probably a virgin. For more information about what the Church teaches about chastity, see the related link below.
