Mormon dating made easy
Islam agrees that Jesus (whom the Qur'an calls "Isa") was a Messiah in his own right, but insists that he was only a mortal man, not the Son of God or a divine being.Despite great opposition from many other Christian branches, Mormonism identifies itself as a Christian religion, the "restoration" of primitive Christianity.Islam and Mormonism both originate in the Abrahamic traditions; each differs from mainstream Christianity in being non-Trinitarian.However, where Islam insists upon the complete oneness and uniqueness of God (Allah), Mormonism asserts that the Godhead is made up of three distinct "personages", each of which is referred to as "a god".When Alyssa Murphy met William Johnson in their young single adult ward, she was quickly attracted to his testimony and ambition.Johnson found himself drawn to Murphy’s bubbly personality.

“A lot of my friends had Tinder, mostly as a joke, so I thought I’d try it,” he said.
He was the first to swipe right on Murphy’s photo, and Murphy soon followed.
The dating game is rigged, but the problem is not strategic â it’s demographic. Multiple studies show that college-educated Americans are increasingly reluctant to marry those lacking a college degree. It’s not that He’s Just Not That Into You—it’s that There Just Aren’t Enough of Him.
