Who is the mormons?
"Mormons" are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. The Church has over 15 million baptized members
worldwide, and these members come from nearly every nationality,
culture, status, and background. While Mormons might differ
physically and temporally, they are united in their faith. Mormons
are Restorationist Christians, meaning that they believe their
church is the true New Testament Christian Church restored (rather
than continued or reformed) in modern times. The doctrines and
authority of the original Christianity were restored to the prophet
Joseph Smith through visitations by Jesus Christ, Peter, James,
John the Beloved, John the Baptist, and other Biblical figures.
Mormons share most beliefs and practices with other Christians, but
also have some unique doctrines, including modern prophets,
additional scripture, and temple ceremonies.Mormons tend to be very
open and excited to share their faith with anyone interested. You
can visit their official website, Mormon.org, to learn more about the faith and

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.
