LDS Answers
September 12th
The Joseph Smith Foundation is excited to announce a new project dedicated to providing
real answers to the tough questions regarding
LDS history and doctrine: LDS Answers!

Visit LDSAnswers.org
How can you answer the question,
"Are Mormons Christian?"
Why are inverted pentagrams
on LDS Mormon Temples?
Is there real evidence
Christ visited North America?
Is music the cause of
your teen's rebellion?

In a 2011 survey, respondents rated the factors that contributed to their "crisis of faith":

  • Doctrinal/theological issues (74%)
  • Loss of faith in Joseph Smith (70%)
  • Historical issues (70%)
  • Loss of faith in the Book of Mormon (65%)

LDS Answers will take each of these factors head on and provide accurate, faith-filled articles that tell the real story with the real facts and the real history. From polygamy to evolution, the Book of Abraham, education, parenting, latter-day prophecy, Book of Mormon geography, historical issues and many other “Mormon stumpers”, we believe answers exist and the facts fortify faith!

We want to reach as many Latter-day Saints as we can but we need your help! Please consider ways you can make a difference:

  • Sharing LDS Answers content on social media.
  • Joining our "commenting" team and assisting in the discussion we encourage at the end of each article.
  • Sharing this project on your blog.

Parallel Problems, Parallel Answers
from the Book of Mormon

Friday, September 16th, 10:15-11:15am

Prior to the first coming of the Son of God, the Church of Jesus Christ among the Nephites enjoyed a period of great prosperity and growth followed by dissension and dwindling. In our own day, some LDS researchers are discovering a similar pattern. Could the history of the Latter-day Church of Jesus Christ be laid out and foreshadowed in the narrative of the Nephite Church? Could the Book of Mormon hold answers for navigating periods of dissension and uncertainty? Discover keys from the Book of Mormon that preserved the faithful and become empowered with practical solutions to strengthen the faith of your family and the Church.

Faithful Answers
for Tough LDS Questions

Saturday, September 17th, 4:00-5:00pm

Do you know someone struggling with a faith crisis over LDS Church history? Are there real answers to these tough questions? The answer is yes! Was Joseph Smith involved in the occult? Why did he marry a 14-year-old girl? Was Brigham Young really transfigured into the image of Joseph Smith or is this narrative merely "Mormon folklore"? Why are many prominent LDS historians calling for a “reconstructed narrative” of Church history? Was Joseph Smith a product of his time? Learn the real history, with real facts that fortify faith! Discover how you can help as we unveil a new Joseph Smith Foundation project, LDS Answers.
