What Do Mormons Believe?

Answers to your frequently asked questions about the Latter-day Saints

Continued from page 1


As a Mormon, has Mitt Romney sworn an oath to follow the church's prophet? If so, wouldn't that be a potential conflict with his oath as president?


Latter-day Saints do not swear an oath to follow the prophet or any other mortal. Latter-day Saints who have been to a Mormon temple pledge to keep the commandments of God and do all they can to build his kingdom on earth. One of those commandments Mormons believe in is to honor and sustain the law of the land. They also believe the constitution is a divinely inspired document. So, there would be no conflict between their religion and an oath to support and defend the constitution.


Recently, Mike Huckabee asked in an interview if Mormons believe Satan and Jesus are brothers. Do they believe that?

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is God the Son, the first born of the father, and the only begotten in the flesh. Lucifer was an angel who rebelled and was cast out of heaven, becoming Satan.. The question of their being brothers makes little sense to Mormons, since there is no special relationship they have, other than in the very general sense of being, along with all of us, children who were created by the same Father in Heaven.
