If mormonism didn't offer anything in return for belief, if wouldn't have a following. This is a fear and greed game. It's all mental.
I grew up in Utah--around Mormons. From what I've noticed, face to face (online is a bit different), this is what makes non Mormons happy: sex, weed, money, and um. Sex, weed and money.
Sex makes you happy through chemicals, weed makes you happy through chemicals, and money applies to both parties. Mormons may be happy through a mind game, but at least it's not a chemical game.
