Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
This list is maintained to provide a place where list members can discuss the problems and difficulties one may face by leaving the Mormon church and adjusting to a life without Mormonism. Others (for example, Mormons who want to learn about what life is like after Mormonism) are also welcome. This is a recovery group. It is NOT a forum for debating whether Mormonism is true or not.
Mormonism Discussion board at the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry site
Mormonism Discussion board at Walter Martin's Religion InfoNet
Recovery Board Operated by ExMormon.org
To read some of the archives and get a feel for the bulletin board, visit Mormon Short Topics. The short topics section is also excellent for those who never were Mormons and want to better understand the Mormon lifestyle.
This is a mailing list for women whose lives have been negatively affected by the Mormon church or its culture. It is a diverse list, with many idealogies. We share our experiences, strength, hope, and emotions. It is an online support group with recovery from our Mormon experience being our top priority. Please, no men.

Terminology Differences by Sandra Tanner
Whenever an evangelical Christian and a Latter-day Saint engage in a doctrinal discussion they encounter the problem of terminology. LDS leaders use the standard vocabulary of Christianity but with radically different definitions. A Christian should never take for granted that his/her LDS friend understands common Christian terms in the biblical way. [...] The following list of Christian terms will be defined by LDS sources and then by biblical quotes. While this is not a complete list of terminology differences, it will cover the most basic ones. For a more detailed look at terminology differences, see The Counterfeit Gospel of Mormonism.
