While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

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.
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.

• FAQs

• Glossaries / Terminology
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.
