For example, Mormons reject the traditional Christian concept of the Trinity. They believe God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost are three separate divine entities sharing a common purpose.

In addition to the Bible, a collection of modern-day revelations and other prophetic writings, the Mormon Scripture also includes the Book of Mormon, a chronicle of events in the Americas where, Mormons believe, Jesus returned after his Crucifixion and Resurrection.

Baptism or the washing away of sins is a rite not just for the living but also the dead. Posthumous baptisms are done inside temples on behalf of the departed so they still have the opportunity to become Mormon in the afterlife.

Polygamy was set aside in 1890 by mainstream Mormons. But some Mormons believe it still exists in the afterlife, and self-proclaimed Fundamentalist Mormons (not part of the mainstream church) still practice it today.

Then there's the claim that Mormons can become gods of their own planets. Mormons say everyone should aim to become godlike. The particulars of how that unfolds are unknown.

Try explaining all of that in 30 seconds or less.
