Despite its recent surge in discussions in the mainstream media, the Mormon Church–officially known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–remains one of the most misunderstood and, to some, the most mysterious of Christian faiths in America. There is a lot of literature out there on the internet, some true, a lot false, and much, much more that is just too long, complex, or confusing for many people to sift through. In an effort to clarify America’s fourth-largest religious denomination, it seemed appropriate to highlight what Mormons actually believe in a media format that is much more accessible than traditional text and hypertext: an infographic.
Note: While all efforts have been made to reflect the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint’s views on these subjects, this infographic is not an official document produced by the Church. Interested readers are encouraged to review the Church’s official website, lds.org, for more thorough and officially-endorsed information.
