The name of the church I belong to is called
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I say belong because I don't just attend.
I am an active participant.
I live what I believe.
I love it.
It brings me peace and hope and lasting happiness.
We are often referred to as Mormons for a number of reasons...I think.
One: We not only "believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God."
Two: Mormon is a lot shorter than saying the full name - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Okay, that's all I got. Two reasons.
But, why Mormon?
The Book of Mormon, just like the Old and New Testament, is another testament of Jesus Christ.
It is an ancient history of the people of the American continent.
Mormon is the name of one of the ancient American prophets.
