Lilliy69- I'm so sorry to hear about this, I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints and when I was 2, my father had an affair with a married woman with a family of her own. Mind you my father is a member of the church and this woman is a member of the church. Commiting adultery is not taken lightly in the church. Because of what happened between my father and this other woman they were ex-communicated. Because of this decision my father made, my parents got divorced and this other woman divorced her husband. The two got married after they'd been divorced for 5-6 years. If you read Proverbs 6:32, it gives a little bit more understanding on the subject... I know what it is like... I know how it affects those who are in the situation. I am the youngest of 5 children, I'm 17, and most people think that what my father did, ruined my life beause I couldn't have a 'normal' childhood. But because of his decision, I know this might sound strange, but because of his decision to love another woman other than my mom has made my family [my mom and my siblings and myself] more strong in the gospel and it has made me realize that God loves every single one of his children equally and that God will not give you a burden he knows you cannot bear. I hope this might help... I know was a year ago but it's never too late for advice. Right? Well, if you have any questions... Don't be afraid to ask.
24 Thou shalt not commit adultery; and he that committeth adultery, and repenteth not, shall be cast out.
25 But he that has committed adultery and repents with all his heart, and forsaketh it, and doeth it no more, thou shalt forgive;
These are words from the doctrine and covenants from the book of Mormon. Adultery is a serious matter, but if you ask Heavenly Father for forgiveness, and mean it, because of Christ's Atonement, you will be forgiven.
If you want to find out for yourself, I encourage you to contact The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints missionaries. They can really help you.
I'm only 15 so I haven't been a real relationship yet, but I'm really sorry for you. I hope his bad choice doesn't have to rewind the rest of your life.
I'm not a Mormon, but my wife is. And she is NOT a mental slave, nor are any of my friends who are members. I don't see how it can be considered destructive. It teaches self reliance, honesty, a good work ethic, good citizenship, charity, good will, education (for men and women), community, friendship, and so on. How are these destructive?
But yes, adultery is a big deal for people of the LDS (Mormon) faith, and they can be (though are not always) excommunicated for it (they can still come to church, but are no longer allowed into their temples, and if the hold the priesthood they are stripped of their authority and church callings), all depending on the circumstances and other factors that I am not privy to.
anyone notice how I never actually judged him ( ron9394) in my 1st reply. like saying for example that HI IS an ass and spewing misinformation about the church and mormanism. I hope people are smart enough to do there own investigating instead of listening to you. Did you pray today.....oh wait , no you didnt because you believe in nothing except harboring serious hatred. i am so sorry that you have to rant like a 3year old to release some of that anger. Have you thought about therapy possibly or...... ?? Please everyone if you are intrested in mormanism do your own research and please dont confuse us with the crazy FLDS church. The fundamentalist LDS church. They are NOT us. we are only LDS.
Hey ron9394, listen i love your pro woman thing you got going over there, but you were obviouly totally burned and hurt by someone or somehow in the church and you are blaming everyone!! You know darn well the LDS chruch IS NOT a cult!! your just so angry and what you wrote makes that clear. VERY CLEAR!! I am sorry for you and i hope you find some kind of help and happiness somewhere because it must really suck to be you! hey were you ex-comminicatedOh and thank you sodabob because you are right all around. :-))
I can tell you the mormon beliefs and adultery, it is absolutely and completely not acceptable!!! It is a sin and a very big deal. It is between the two people married wheather or not to stay together, but it is grounds for divorce. and divorce is NOT something taken lightly among the mormons it has to be approved before you can even go through with it, but adultery is one that they would approve divorce for. I'm sorry that happened to you by the way.
So sorry for you, for I've been there. It doesn't matter what religion, unfaithfulness is immoral. Forgiveness is always appropriate, even if he does not come back. If he does not come back, you are free and he will have to live with his stupid decision to wander.
Kids always feel they are to blame, but squelch that noise and assure them, if you have any, it is never their fault. Be the best ma you can be and PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!
I grew up mormon in sandy city utah. It is a distructive cult and its negative affects on society, especially women and children. Mormonism is an infectious disease that needs to be whiped out.. VISIT:
many mormons don't know any better. many were never taught, any form of rationalization They only know how to blindly adhere to mental slavery.
I hope all of you condoning polygamy go to hell and burn for eternity. your nothing but an intollerant and a woman hater . please dont reproduce so you dont infect this species with your stupidity. I hope you get cancer in your prostate.
If anyone wants a question answered by an LDS scholar, you can ask them here:
belief is: don't do it... same as any christian religion. Let's just say SHE IS going to BE IN TROUBLE!!!
If you commit adultery, and you marry the person, God will forgive you... I think...
