Article of Faith 11

11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

I think this article of faith is self explanatory. However, I would like to mention once again that our church spends no money or time to combat other religions. We don't print any information about other churches, nor do we preach about their teachings. Our attitude could be best summed up by a statement by Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley when he said, "Let me say that we appreciate the truth in all churches and the good which they do. We say to the people, in effect, you bring with you all the good that you have, and then let us see if we can add to it. That is the spirit of this work. That is the essence of our missionary service." Gordon B. Hinckley, “Words of the Living Prophet,” Liahona, Apr 1999, 18
