There's a modern religion for you It's a denomination of Christianity, a branch of the tree of Christianity that many Christians probably want to prune, but it's there, it's part of the tree. And it's modern... 1830. The official name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was founded by Joseph Smith, a seeker who believed he was given authority to restore Christianity. So you don't get confused, I'm not a Mormon and I don't believe Joseph Smith was a prophet. But there are some things I have in common with Mormons... Chastity, fidelity, ...thinking... (I know there are more....) Recent.... 1830 and 1844... The Baha'i Faith began in 1844, the same year that Joseph Smith was shot by a mob. The Forerunner of Baha'u'llah, the Bab, was shot by a firing squad six years later, in 1850. Mormon temples and Baha'i temples serve different purposes and look quite a bit different from each other, but the first temple of both religions was lost. The first Mormon temple was lost to a splinter group and the first Baha'i temple was lost to the Soviet Union. The second temple of each religion was built in.... (and this is a surprising coincidence....) So I'll build up to it. The Mormon Church began in Pennsylvania and the Baha'i Faith began in Persia... Pennsylvania and Persia are very far apart (if that isn't obvious...) And even though they started so far apart, and so recently, the second temple of each religion was built in the same state, Illinois.
