Today, you’re going to see how the Church of the Latter Day Saints has changed from the days of the Prophet Joseph Smith.
Today, the church is a full-fledged nonprofit organization.
Today you’re also going to find out why some people are afraid of it, and some are not.
Today we’ll talk about the history of the church, the impact of Joseph Smith, and how Joseph Smith’s church has changed.1:00 – How Joseph Smith and the Church StartedThe church was founded in Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1843 by Joseph Smith Sr., the son of the prophet, who was the second prophet of the Church.
It was founded as a religious, social, and political organization, a group of believers who believed that they were the true followers of Jesus Christ.
The church was also an economic institution.
The Prophet Joseph was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and a member for a time of the First Presidency.1.00 – What was the Nauvook and why did it need to be burned?3:00 Joseph Smith had his own set of rules about how to run the church.
In fact, he wrote down every single rule he had to follow in the Doctrine and Covenants.
He made sure he had a set of documents that he would keep, and he kept them safe.
He even created a special place for himself and his family to go to in the woods to get away from the harsh weather.
This is where he would get the gold plates.
Joseph Smith also wanted to keep the Naupeons property secure.
He wanted the property to be secure because he believed that the plates were not to be lost.
In 1844, the Prophet burned the Nauwampum property, and Joseph was not the only person involved.
Brigham Young and the Twelve also died.
Brigham was buried in the cemetery.
He was buried on a hill in Nauwamum Cemetery, about ten miles (16 kilometers) away from his home in Nauville, Illinois.2:00- The First American ChurchThe First American church was started in 1844 by Joseph and Hyrum Smith, who were both converts to the gospel.
They were the sons of Joseph and Emma Smith.
The Mormon faith was based on the teachings of Joseph, and the Prophet was also known as the “Father of the Faith.”
The First Mormons believed that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the teachings he preached were the Word of God.
Joseph and his wife Emma had a child, Joseph Jr., who was baptized as a child and became the father of the Mormon faith.
The first Mormon church was formed in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Joseph had a vision about two years after he was baptized, and a person named Benjamin Rush was a man who lived near him.
He came to Joseph and told him that Rush was prophesying that Joseph would be called to a celestial kingdom, and that Rush told Joseph that he was a Prophet of God, and told Joseph to go and preach to the people and then to avenge the death of his wife, Sarah.
Joseph went to Salt Lake, and in 1845, Rush baptized Joseph as the first Mormon prophet.
The Church was founded with the help of a large donation from Brigham Young.3:30 – How the Mormon Church changed over timeThe LDS Church today is the largest Christian denomination in the world.
Today the church has over 13 million members and around 4.3 million temples, or worship places.
It is estimated that there are about 200 million members of the LDS Church.
There are a lot of differences between the LDS and other Christian denominations, but here are some of the main ones:The First Presidency was created in 1851 by the First President John Taylor and Joseph Smith as the head of the government of the United States.
There is a large divide between the First and Second Quorums, the first two of which were led by Presidents Brigham Young, John Taylor, and Oliver Cowdery.
They all believed that God was in charge of all things.
The Second Presidency was formed by Joseph’s brother, David O. McKay, and his father, Brigham Young Jr. Brigham Sr. was the first of the two presidents to be called President of the Council of Fifty.
It has become the official body of the presidency.
The First Presidency is responsible for overseeing the LDS church, including all government offices.3.30 – Why do Mormons have so many temple ceremonies?
When people were asked why Mormons are so organized, the answer was that they did not want to give up their freedom.
They wanted to be able to have the freedom to worship as they wished, which was to go out into the world and worship as their hearts desired.
They also wanted the freedom not to give their lives away in battle.
In many ways, it was an organization that would allow people to live their lives as they wanted to, without having to be under government control.4:00 Mormon temple ceremonies are now a lot more common than they were
