The doctrines and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) do not correlate with those of metaphysics. That is, you could not honestly believe in both metaphysics and Mormonism. That being said, Mormons are not 'against' metaphysics. It is a fundamental belief of Mormons that all people should have the freedom to believe and worship as they choose. Mormons recognize metaphysics as a legitimate belief system, just one which they don't personally believe in. Mormons are welcome to study and learn about metaphysics if it interests them.

Some early Mormons were poor and some were quite wealthy. Some left a great deal of wealth to join the Church. Some lived in large brick homes and others in small wooden shacks.

Early Mormons had differing opinions about the Missourians. At first they were hopeful and felt that Missouri was the place that they should settle. Then many Missourians began to be hostile toward the Mormons, which caused most Mormons to feel that the Missourians were unaccepting and intolerant.

The Mormon Extermination Order was withdrawn in the 1970's and today there are over 60,000 Mormons living in Missouri.
