False Prophecy in Nephi
2 Timothy 3:5-7; “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
I often wonder what the average every-day Mormon might think of their scripture above. How is it the Mormon god and hero in their beloved scripture would lie to them? How can this happen if God can’t lie and God is perfect? Why would he allow one of the main characters in the BoM to say such a thing when in fact it wouldn’t be true?
And then there’s Joseph. Not the Joseph mentioned in their scripture, but the one and only Joseph Smith. If he truly cared for the flock he was in charge of, why would he allow them to believe something that isn’t true?
The whole story of the Book of Mormon rests upon the idea that the Nephites were utterly destroyed in the many battles they fought with the Lamanites. Supposedly Joseph Smith found the golden plates their stories were engraved upon after being visited by an angel and told to translate them into 1611 King James English.
So if the seed of Joseph wouldn’t utterly be destroyed then what’s up with Moroni’s farewell and the story that the Nephites all died out?
People who truly love and care for you, whether it’s family, friends or your prophet, don’t lie to you and especially about something as important as the welfare of your soul. If Smith truly cared he wouldn’t do this.
