So first off Mormons don't actually believe in the traditional "hell", and you don't go to hell for drinking a "warm" drink. When Mormons talk about not drinking hot drinks they mean specifically coffee and tea. Mormons also do not believe that Jesus Christ would literally build a temple in Missouri, however Mormons have built a temple in Missouri. And last but not least Mormons are not based off the bible. Mormons main holy scripture is the Book of Mormon.

Next time you decide to hate a group at least get your reasons for hating them correct.

Just to clarify: The "warm" drink thing? It actually is advised to stay away from hot drinks in their beliefs due to the whole "your body is a temple" thing and the fact that hot drinks are actually potentially damaging to your stomach lining. It's not anything your body can't fix, but meh.
Teas are okay, actually.... so log as they are decaf. Caffeine is highly addictive and that's the only reason the mormon church advises staying away from it.
I think he may have been referring to the Book of Mormon, which is more or less a retelling of most of the bible, but in north america instead.
And lastly, The Book of Mormon is just the most well known "scripture". There's actually also the Doctrine and Covenants (from what I understand, a guide on how to best live your life: example, not taking substances that are harmful to your body, not defiling your body, etc.), the Pearl of Great Price (no idea what that is), and the Bible. The way I've heard it described, in their church, the Bible is the bread, the Book of Mormon is the meat, and the rest are the fixings/trimmings. You can be complete with any part, but it's best to have the whole meal. I thought it was kinda a cool analogy.

Thumbed you up though because I can't stand to see someone defacing anyone's beliefs, even if I thought it was stupid beliefs.

I worked with a Mormon and met quite a few of them. They are rather nice people. They believe in 3 levels of heaven. There is no hell. You go to whichever level you'd be happiest at. No matter what you believed in life. Which honestly is something I like. I don't personally believe in a heaven or a hell but I do like how they don't believe to condemn someone to hell.

Not happiest at. It's the one you most deserve. Kinda like a happier catholic. And there still is belief in hell.

Well, there is a hell in a sense. They call it "Outer Darkness" and it's when you do really ****** up things, like murder and rape. If you are a generally decent person, you're fine

Nah, Outer Darkness are for people who have a perfect knowledge and belief in God and have denied him. Therefore, no man on Earth can possibly go there.

And the lowest level of heaven, where history's worst monsters will go, is apparently so beautiful, that if we were to see it, every human would commit suicide to be there.

except every few years or so a bunch of christfags start saying how they determined when judgement day is going to occur but it never does
