Welcome escholl! I hope you stick around and learn some new stuff here. I was once like you and had the same feelings about the LDS church. However I kept an open mind and with a little research have come to realize Mormonism did NOT come from God. The LDS church is CLEARLY a man made institution.
I recommend that you check out the following:http://20truths.info/http://packham.n4m.org/tract.htm
This is mostly a recovery (and bitch) board for ex-Mormons, but the above websites will show you the UNEDITED history of Mormonism. And YES you can't always TRUST the internet, but you have a BRAIN so its OKAY to use it! Verify the sources and check out the Mormon apologists websites/books (www.fairlds.org) to see what their rebuttals are. You will quickly come to the realization that you been kept in the dark (and in many cases LIED to) by the LDS church.
Good luck on your path to learning the truth!
