Divide y venceras.



:GRUPOS FRACCIONARIOS DE LOS MORMONES - Sectas que se fragmentaron a partir de la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días
Los partidarios de la  Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días (también conocidos como SUD o Mormones) basada en Salt Lake City, se jactan de la supuesta “unidad” de sus 12 millones de miembros. Señalando que existen múltiples denominaciones de Iglesias Cristianas, los Mormones atribuyen su “unidad” (por ejemplo: una estructura de iglesia y creencia uniformes) a la revelación de los últimos días y a los libros adicionales que ellos consideran como Escritura.
Ellos desafían a los potenciales conversos a que lean y oren con respecto al Libro de Mormón para ganar un “testimonio” acerca de la veracidad del libro. Afirman que este “testimonio” (que consiste en tener una sensación de “ardor en el pecho”) es la prueba principal para determinar si el potencial converso debe hacerse miembro de la Iglesia Mormona. Dado el hecho de que más de 100 grupos fragmentarios se han desarrollado sobre el fundamento del Profeta José Smith y el Libro de Mormón, cuestionamos la validez del “testimonio” Mormón en cuanto a confirmar a la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días como la única poseedora del “evangelio restaurado.” Dado que todos estos movimientos basan su autoridad en el Libro de Mormón y en el Profeta José Smith, ¿cómo puede un “testimonio”, obtenido al orar acerca del Libro de Mormón, ser suficiente para probar a cuál iglesia entre todos estos movimientos debe uno unirse? La siguiente lista de grupos disidentes, es tomada del libro Caminos Divergentes de Restauración (Divergent Paths of Restoration):
