CNN Religion Editor Offers Informative Explanation of Mormonism


As national and worldwide attention is increasingly focused on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the need to clearly explain the Church’s background and core doctrines to curious outsiders becomes more and more important. Religion Editor Dan Gilgoff recently posted a video that accurately clarifies common misconceptions people have of the Church, while also explaining a few of the Church’s core beliefs.
