Mormon Decisions 10Sunstone Magazine, ‘Revival Language in the Book of Mormon,’ May – June 1983, pg 22; “The concept of an infinite atonement was born in a famous theory of the atonement by Anselm of Canterbury in the twelfth century. Anselm believed that God was an infinite being, meaning that he was the ideal projection of every good human quality—God possesses infinite knowledge and wisdom, infinite holiness, and so forth…

…“Nothing less than a sacrifice of infinite merit, can atone for the offences of the whole world.” To deny ‘the necessity of an infinite atonement made by the death and suffering of Jesus Christ… goes to overturn the whole system of the gospel ….’ Old Testament prophecy and teaching are ‘all pointing to the great mediator.’ Because Jesus’ sacrifice was ‘offered upon the altar of his divinity, it acquired infinite value…’

We find portions of the above statements throughout the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon has a unique perspective, but it does utilize traditional language and is in fact part of that tradition following Anselm.” – Mark Thomas

October 25 – Revelation 22:18-19; “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

October 17 – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4; “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

D&C 3:1; “The works, and the designs, and the purposes of God cannot be frustrated, neither can they come to naught.”

Martin Harris (1)As I’ve stated countless times before, there’s a lot to learn about Mormonism once you leave the fold. I was a sixth generation Mormon from Utah no less and thought I had a pretty good handle on the history of my beloved heritage.  I’ve never been so wrong in my life!

Today we’re looking at one of the events in Mormonism that brings up more questions than answers. The infamous story of the ‘lost 116 pages to the BoM’ sits in the hallways of Mormon history waiting its turn to be exposed for the lie that it is.

A cursory glance at the subject matter doesn’t reveal the underhanded fallacious habits of Joseph Smith or what he did to pull this one out of his magic hat. The problem here is the same as it is with everything in Mormonism. The victims, if you will, are clueless as to what’s in the dark closets of their church. I know this for certain because I used to be one of them.

Pray with us that they will open their eyes and accept the truth that God is laying out for them to see!

With Love in Christ;
