I would guess that as usual I am missing a step in the process, but when I attempt to add a hyperlink to an article, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. For example, this link worked:
But trying to link to http://www.lds.org and other similar links did not..... What am I doing wrong?
(I have tried it with and without http and https....still doesn't work.)

I just tried those links, and they both worked fine. Are you just typing that link into the body of the article, or are you using the link button to add a link? I used the link button as follows:
- Type text like "Click here for LDS.org"
- Select "here"
- Click the Link button on the toolbar
- For the URL, enter "http://www.lds.org" and click OK
- Save the article
Click here for LDS.org.
That's what I expected. The link for "here" is clickable and takes me to the expected place (LDS.org).
If I don't use the Link button, and just type in the text of the URL, in my experience that text is never turned into a clickable link.

That was it! I was on a plane all day yesterday and I think my brain is scrambled, but now that I can successfully add a link, the link only gives me the dreaded... "Page Not Found." Oh wise one, what am I not doing correctly?

I don't know. But if I were troubleshooting this, I would:
- Exactly copy the URL I put in the link
- Paste it in my browser's address line
- Make sure that I can successfully visit that exact URL
