Some people wouldn’t consider Mormonism a world religion…but it is. Mormonism is Christianity at its core. It’s a restoration of the Church that Christ established when He was on the earth. What really makes the church unique is the fact that it’s the only religion on earth that I know of that tries to embrace all of the other world religions for the truth that is contained within them.
When I was in college I took a world religion class and loved every minute of it. The professor was an Evangelical PhD of religion. I think it was the best grade I ever received in a college class. The class provided a deep analysis of the roots and teachings of the great religions in the world.
Every single class, my friend and I would look at each other in amazement as the doctrines of the Mormon Church were taught over and over again. Primal religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikism, Jainism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity in all its 40,000 different denominational variations. Each of them containing pieces of truth.
It makes all kinds of sense if you think about it. In the beginning, God gave the gospel to Adam and Eve. They taught their children the fullness of the gospel and there was only one “Church” on the earth at that time. Who can dispute that?
