Some of the most common questions about mormonism include questions about Joseph Smith. Some people think mormons worship him- this could not be farther from the truth. We do not worship Joseph Smith, but we do hold him in high regard as the earliest leader in our church history. Any worship is reserved for the One true and living God.
Joseph Smith was a boy, who in the early 1800’s, asked God what church on the earth was true, so that he could join it. I recommend reading the following link to find out how God responded to Joseph Smith’s prayer, and then praying yourself to ask God if the things you read are not true.
