Apostasy and Restoration
Mormons claim that “total” apostasy overcame the church following apostolic times, and that the Mormon Church (founded in 1830) is the “restored church.”
Mormons claim that God the Father was once a man and that he then progressed to godhood (that is, he is a now-exalted, immortal man with a flesh-and-bone body).
Mormons believe that the Trinity consists not of three persons in one God but rather of three distinct gods. According to Mormonism, there are potentially many thousands of gods besides these.
Exaltation of Humans
Mormons believe that humans, like God the Father, can go through a process of exaltation to godhood.
Mormons believe that Jesus Christ was the firstborn spirit-child of the heavenly Father and a heavenly Mother.
Jesus then progressed to deity in the spirit world.
He was later physically conceived in Mary’s womb, as the literal “only begotten” Son of God the Father in the flesh (though many present-day Mormons remain somewhat vague as to how this occurred).
Mormons believe that most people will end up in one of three kingdoms of glory, depending on one’s level of faithfulness. Belief in Christ, or even in God, is not necessary to obtain immortality in one of these three kingdoms, and therefore only the most spiritually perverse will go to hell.
Sin and Atonement
Mormons believe that Adam’s transgression was a noble act that made it possible for humans to become mortal, a necessary step on the path to exaltation to godhood.
They think that Christ’s atonement secures immortality for virtually all people, whether they repent and believe or not.
Mormons believe that God gives to (virtually) everyone a general salvation to immortal life in one of the heavenly kingdoms, which is how they understand salvation by grace. Belief in Christ is necessary only to obtain passage to the highest, celestial kingdom—for which not only faith but participation in Mormon temple rituals and obedience to its “laws of the gospel” are also prerequisites.

The Mountain Meadows Massacre has definitely become a lamentable part of Mormon history. Whereas
Mormons often like to point to persecutions brought on them from outside sources, this is one area of
history where there is no doubt that the Mormons were guilty of the most heinous of crimes.
