I have recently come across a group called Reform Mormonisim. I thought their views were interesting and as I mentally answered some of their questions here I was surprised how much of it resonated with me.
What I did feel in the end after reading much of their thoughts and material is why bother!! Why not become a nontheist Unitarian. Is it worth all the effort when there must be other religions very close to the same theology? Hopefully we can get someone from their church to answer that question
I have added a poll to this and must apologize to those at Reform Mormonism and to the readers at Mormon Matters in that they are totally paraphrased and maybe (unintentionally )taken out of context. So please go here to see them on their web page.
What they believe here
Reform Mormonism is a home-based, personal philosophy. A day of rest is held wherever one is at; there are no church services. Reform Mormonism does have special temple ordinances, that are designed to aide a person throughout their life, that are conducted in dedicated temple spaces. Unlike the LDS, they do not perform any temple ordinance for the deceased.
Reformed Mormonism are individuals who have moved away from organized religion and have found peace and satisfaction in concentrating on the important things in life. We’re just like you – parents, children, brothers, sisters, friends and partners. We’ve settled on a personal philosophy that makes sense in the 21st century. It’s personal, important, and best of all, it isn’t scary like so many churches these days.[poll id=”151″] [poll id=”152″] [poll id=”153″] [poll id=”154″] [poll id=”155″] [poll id=”156″] [poll id=”157″] [poll id=”158″] [poll id=”159″] [poll id=”160″] [poll id=”161″] [poll id=”162″] [poll id=”163″] [poll id=”164″] [poll id=”165″] [poll id=”166″] [poll id=”167″] [poll id=”168″] [poll id=”169″] [poll id=”170″]
