I'm still here...
 
Hi ladies, I just wanted to let you know I am still here but mostly lurking. As many of you know I was raised LDS but became inactive as a teen. Over the last few months I have come to realize that my own understanding of the doctrine is a weird mix of LDS beliefs and mainstream Christianity, so I find myself on this journey of figuring out what is the right church for me. I am reading my Bible, praying, and going to both the LDS church and other mainstream Christianity churches in the mean time and hoping that God reveals to me where he wants me to be.

I just wanted to let y'all know that I haven't completely dropped off the face of the earth lol.

What are the main doctrinal differences in LDS and mainstream Christianity?

Mostly it is that the Mormon church does not believe in the trinity. They believe in the godhead (so they believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) but they do not believe they are three in one.

They also believe that we were all once spirit children of Heavenly Father (including Jesus and satan) before we came down here. So we are all brother's and sisters in spirit.

There are quite a few little differences, but those are the main two that most people seem to have a problem with from what I have witnessed personally.

Thanks for the support everyone.
