Mormons & Polygamy
Polygamy and Mormonism are in the news again out in Utah. While I know that the Mormon church renounced polygamy over a century ago, a couple of paragraphs caught my eye:
Although polygamy is illegal, it's believed that tens of thousands of Mormon fundamentalists and others across the West continue the practice. ... The fundamentalist sect split from mainstream Mormonism after the broader church renounced polygamy more than a century ago. The fundamentalist group touts that men must have at least three wives to reach heaven.And so my question for my Mormon friends is simply this - how do you know you are right and the "fundamentalist group" is wrong? If God's revelation is an open book which is still being written, how do you decide which prophets to listen to and which ones to reject? How would a non-Mormon know which "Mormonism" to convert to?
This is not a flame - I'm genuinely interested in knowing how you'd answer this question.
