LDS: What's in a name?
This material is not interesting to many Mormons.
Everything here is true
-- as far as
This page is about the NAME of the Mormon church. Officially, we like to call ourselves...
"Church of Latter-day Saints of Jesus Christ" *
Our founder was an
uneducated farmer. He gave us the name...
This is wrong! - - LOOK:
|LOOK: The Dictionary Definition...|
The word of is directional ← .
Of indicates possession or belonging. Examples: Jesus of Nazareth... King of the Jews... state of mind,,, Fullness of the life of Jesus.
Of means that the first thing belongs to the second. It never means that the second thing belongs to the first. Don't go to sleep now...
'Belongs-to' also can mean 'is part of', or 'is owned by'. You can think of the first thing, THIS , to be a subset, of a member of the second thing, THAT :
THAT ← belongs-to THIS
Jesus Christ ← of Latter-day Saints
The second part
has two parts:
Of, as far as it has been translated correctly, has that meaning. It's like so:
← belongs-to United States of
Jesus of Nazareth king of the Jews wheel of cheese state of mind I am the daughter of the great King host of angels ← belongs-to ← belongs-to Binders full of the names of women Sharing the fullness of the life
Jesus Christ In the valley of the shadow
This means that Jesus Christ belongs to the Latter day Saints.
...But that's ass-BACKWARDS!
The grammar is right, but the meaning is wrong:
Jesus Christ doesn't belong to the Latter-day Saints.
It's the Latter-day Saints that belong to Jesus Christ!
Thus, the name of the LDS church is wrong. Anyone with knowledge of English can see that the name of the church should be...
Church ← of Latter-day Saints ← of Jesus Christ...
... if translated correctly, of course. The Church of Latter-day Saints belongs to Jesus Christ.
Another example of this is:
Mitt Romney's ← church's ← Baptism For the Dead
The valley ← of the shadow ← of death
The grammar is right, but the meaning is wrong... In Mormonism, meaning is often a secondary concern. We're a peculiar people. For example, we teach that the Bible is true, as far as it has been translated correctly.
But the false, not to be translated parts are not identified.
Joseph Smith, the inventor of Mormonism, spent much of his life forcing meaning onto Egyptian hieroglyphic texts, and tried to rectify this Bible-problem by re-translating it, but he did not finish the work. Bush's meaning...
Bonus Point: The Chosen People --
What does the word saint mean? A saint is a chosen person who is better than everybody else. Definition.

Genitive case - Wikipedia
The genitive case (also called the second case) ... English does not have a proper genitive case, but a possessive ending, ...
AXIS of FAITH - FAMILY VALUES
* Mormonism uses the possessive case incorrectly in its own name. Officially the name of the church is Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
but the intended meaning is Church of Latter-day Saints of Jesus Christ. Mormonism was invented in the early nineteenth century by Joseph Smith,
an uneducated young farm boy.
* In 2001 The leaders of the Mormon church announced that they don't like the name Mormon.
We think that it is better than the current one.
