Latter-day Saints (Mormons)

Founded in the year 1830 by Joseph Smith

This Major Sect is 189 years old.

Smith began his career by raising money to publish a book he claimed was his translation of an ancient text whose hiding place had been revealed to him. The book was about a race of ancient Americans with a connection to the Jews of the Old Testament. Mormons believe that Christianity fell into apostasy shortly after the death of the last Apostle and until Joseph Smith, there had been no valid Christian religion. It should be noted most other Christians do not consider Mormons Christians as they not only deny the divinity of Christ, but even consider God the Father as once not being God.
