How did Mormons grow so fast? They changed how they counted
If you suspected the newly released U.S. Religion Census overstated the Mormons' growth rate, you were right. Thatâs because, this time around, the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints changed the way it reported its membership to the researchers.
Its report pegged U.S. Mormon growth at 45.5 percent, jumping from 4.2 million in 2000 to 6.1 million in 2010. The 2000 figure, however, was much lower than the 5.2 million listed in the LDS churchâs own almanac for that year. If researchers had been given that figure, the percentage of growth would have been considerably smaller, closer to 18 percent....
No matter if they counted differently its still a false religon and a false hurch. Very sad indeed that so many people are spiritually blind in this world whether in the rcc, mormon, jw and protestant denominations etc. Religon will take you to a lost eternity because it is about us getting salvation for ourselves and rejecting the glorious Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ.
