Joseph Smith Reviews
the Mormon Army

A page has been started here that lists a few links, videos and books that provide some background on the Church of Latter Day Saints, also known commonly as the Mormon Church. Mormonism is a home-grown American religion that was started by Joseph Smith in the Burned-Over District of New York State. The area was given that name due to the religious fervor of the region during the early 1800’s of the many unorthodox religious communities that arisen there. Many of the unorthodox American religions that started in the US have theological roots in this area, including Obama’s Black Liberation Theology, which is actually theologically related to Mormonism. This list gives those, who are so minded, a relatively quick means of learning about the unorthodox theocratic beliefs of Mormonism.

The doctrine of Mormonism teaches that Mormons have a destiny to found a political and ecclesiastical theocracy in America and the world in their version of the imminent end times. The Mormon church already did found such a political kingdom of God in the Utah territory in the mid-1800’s. That ended, more or less, when Utah became a state, but the church is still organized as a government that exercises quite a lot of control over members’ day-to-day lives. For this reason Americans should be more aware of the doctrine and history of this very influential religious sect.
