A comment from a delightful young lady

Suzanne, a 12-year-old Mormon, left a comment on my blog.

She wrote: "I am a 12 year old Mormon. I love it. Do you know someone who is a Mormon? It is very true that it is the person not the religion. Some are bad some are good. I have a lot of non-Mormon friends. They are awesome. They know I am a Mormon and still are my friends. Joseph Smith never drank alcohol. He asked some people to stop spitting tobacco all over the temple, though. Where did you find your info? By the way, Mormons are Christians because we believe in Christ. it's as simple as that. I know he died on the cross so we can repent of our sins. which I have made a lot of mistakes. Our church is not the one that is bad. It is the people making mistakes. We all do. we are human. god does not make mistakes, and he made the church. My bishop is a very humble man. He does a ton of service. One time, all the youth got together and gathered food for the food bank. I was one of them. It was raining hard, but we all had fun and laughed really hard. I know you probably think I am bluffing. It's not right to clog drains. (What were they thinking?:) But we really did do it. How do you know Joseph Smith is a lunatic? How do you know it's not true? Thanks, but think about it."

Thank you, Suzanne. I was a Mormon for many years. I am now a former Mormon.

Joseph Smith was a drinker of some alcoholic drink. Wine, for example.

How do I know Mormonism is not true? I prayed about it.

Suzzane, thank you for your well-thought out comment.

God bless you.

I've realised that quite a few blogs that I read are authored by Mormons, and so I did some research which, frankly, made me pretty confused. Such as how do Mormons resolve differences in teachings within the Bible with Mormon teaching? (Do they consider it important to read the Bible or just the Book of Mormon?!) Also if you don't get married are you not considered saved?
Sorry for the random questions, but as a Christian I find it incredible to reconcile the saving grace of Christ with the 'checklist' that seems to me to be Mormonism. I don't want to offend anyone, so thought you might be my best bet!
