Some people wouldn’t consider Mormonism a world religion…but it is. Mormonism is Christianity at its core. It’s a restoration of the Church that Christ established when He was on the earth. What really makes the church unique is the fact that it’s the only religion on earth that I know of that tries to embrace all of the other world religions for the truth that is contained within them.
When I was in college I took a world religion class and loved every minute of it. The professor was an Evangelical PhD of religion. I think it was the best grade I ever received in a college class. The class provided a deep analysis of the roots and teachings of the great religions in the world.
