As national and worldwide attention is increasingly focused on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the need to clearly explain the Church’s background and core doctrines to curious outsiders becomes more and more important.
CNN.com religion editor Dan Gilgoff recently posted a video that accurately clarifies common misconceptions people have of the Church, while also explaining a few of the Church’s core beliefs. For example, Gilgoff explains that the Church’s official name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Gilgoff also points out that the Church considers the Book of Mormon to be scripture alongside the Bible, and stopped the practice of polygamy in 1890 — more than 120 years ago.
