    Anyone here thats a former Mormon? A person in the internet wrote abouth Them. That community could not be more impressive in its cohesion, sincerity, benevolence, decency, patriotism, and faith.

    I seen mormons go from house to house before the Convid virus.They always seem cheerful. Is it just an act of are they that way in there meetings?

    No need to compare to JWs who always seem miserable and with a forced smile.

    Always be sincere, whether you mean it or not.....

    However it's probably easier to swallow ancients Bible myths than it is to believe 19th century fantasies about finding golden tablets bearing the book of Mormon. In both cases, the evidence for the truthfulness of the Bible and the Book of Mormon, is no stronger than for fairies living at the bottom of the garden.

    You simply have to want to believe it.

    Mormons are at one of the spectrum as far as cults go...... very warm and fuzzy. JW's are at the other end --The Devil's Marine Corps.

    Don't be deceived, the Mormons will disfellowship you just as quick for not worshipping their organizational idol... just like the JW's will. (Cp. 2 Tim. 3:3)

    What motivates young Mormons to go on mission?

    1. Example of parents and siblings who went on mission.

    2. Encouragement from congregation, including financial support.

    3. Hard to attract a mate in the church without going on mission first.

    4. It sounds like an adventure.

    5. Personal religious experiences, and encouragement in speeches by Mormon leaders.

    6. Helps network in the church and in some cases secular career.

    People who are unfamiliar with the JW's say many of the same things about them that you've said about the Mormons.

    Ex members of both groups have shed the rose colored glasses

    So there are two Mormons walking down a sidewalk and two JW Elders walking up the sidewalk.

    They face one another and the two JW elders say 'we don't move out of the way for non believers.....

    We do!....... say the Mormons and then step around the Elders.

    Both religions are extreme and uninformed. Though you can have a more 'normal life' as a Mormon re education wise....... otherwise their really is nothing to like or respect within their Joseph Smith made up fantesy.

    On the other hand being a JW is totally pathetic. Unless you can embrace stupid. A JW knows nothing and doesn't want or need...... to learn anything.

    The Mormons........ due to their education are far more educated then the JW's.

    Having learned the JW beliefs as a young person........ I am still embarrassed. If I was a Mormon I would be equality embarrassed. Being a dumb ass seldom works out.

    The stories in the exmormon community ( ) are very similar to exjw stories.

    To be honest, I think the JWs have equaled if not out performed the Mormon church in almost every way. The idea that the Mormon membership is bigger, happier and more engaged in their religion is simply not true.

    LDS, another high control group I have no interest in being part of whatsoever. I fled one cult and surely don't need another.
