The best way to find out is to ask a member, one of our missionaries, or go mormon.org. I can give you a few answers here. 1. We are Christians believing and worshiping in God the Eternal Father, and His son Jesus Christ. 2. We believe or use as scripture The King James version of The Bible. The Book of Mormon, and The Doctrine and Covenants. I am sure you are familiar with The Bible. We also use the Book of Mormon, Which is another testament of Jesus Christ. Just as the Bible tells the History of the Jews in the old world, The Book of Mormon tells of an off shoot of the house of Israel led to the new world by the hand of God. It tells of their history and dealings with God. The doctrine and covenants deals with modern day revelation and establishes the laws of the church. 3.We Follow a living Prophet and believe in revelation. The current Prophet today is Gordon B. Hinckley. 4. we believe in faith, repentance and baptism for the remission of sins. 5. There is no paid clergy, its all volunteer. 6. We have 13 articles of faith that out line the basics of what we believe. you can find more answers at mormon.org,and lds.org. look in the telephone book and call our missionaries or the local ward. There are to many to list but you can find the answers where I showed you. You are welcome to visit one of our churches any time you want. Just come on in that way you'll see we don't eat little kids and all that. lollollol sorry little joke very little have a great day First we believe that Heavenly Father is Just that the father of our spirit. Like any father he (Heavenly Father) wants the best for us and being his children we have the potential to be like him. Perfected Mothers and Fathers rearing children and implementing the same plan that God the Father has here. This is all dependent on our worthiness. So not every member of The Church of Jesus Christ will obtain this opportunity and People who are not members will reach this goal by living worthy lives during this test. Women are not dependent on their mates to obtain perfection it is very much the other way around. This is very deep doctrine for our faith. however let pose this simple question. If God loves us and set up the plan of salvation, If the scriptures say we are his children and we are, and we as mortal beings we try to give our children better than we have it, what would a loving Father who is perfect want for his children? what kind of happiness does he have? In Mormonism, Kolob is a star or planet mentioned in the Book of Abraham as being nearest to the throne of God. The literal existence and the exact nature of Kolob is a controversial topic in Mormon theology, as is the Book of Abraham. However, the idea of Kolob has had an influence in Mormon theology and culture, particularly within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Kolob is the place where God lives. there's a hymn in our hymnbook called "If you could hie to Kolob", which means "if you could go to the place where God lives"... so Kolob is otherwise known as the highest degree of heaven.

Radical Mormons are people who are Mormons or share similar beliefs with Mormons, but don't fit in with the mainstream Mormon culture. They are either more liberal or more conservative than most Mormons.
The whole reason why the Mormons traveled to the west was because they were persecuted for their beliefs in the east.
Because non-Mormons were threatened by their religion and that it was beginning so successfully. Also, because non-Mormons were upset with some on the Mormons beliefs. Then once non-Mormons started fighting, Mormons fought back a little, and then moved because they realized this isn't what they were all about.
Since Mormonism began in 1830, the main challenge Mormons have faced is criticism for their beliefs. At times this has caused violence, and some have even been killed for their beliefs, but for the most part it is just a general unacceptance.
Mormons like their religion because they have strong faith in the beliefs and standards their religion practices. For more information see Mormon.org
