Today we’re looking at three lies Mr. Smith tried to pass off as revelations from God, and in case you didn’t know, all three contradict each other. It’s strange considering he pronounced the Book of Mormon as the ‘most correct book on earth’…

Chances are, most Mormons wouldn’t know what their church teaches about this, and their prophet Joseph Smith didn’t make things easy for anyone.
Let’s take a look at what ol’ Joe had to say about the first resurrection, and then compare his words with what he wrote in the Book of Mormon –
This topic should be the catalyst to investigate Mormonism with a fine-toothed comb. The very foundation for all of Mormonism is built upon the story of Joe Smith’s claim he had a face to face encounter with God. That alone warrants such attention!
Setting aside the conflicting stories of when Smith actually saw God, and the problems of when he and Cowdery officially received the priesthood, let’s look at the topic independent of those two inherent problems.
“…with W.W. Phelps and Oliver Cowdery as scribes, I commenced the translation of some of the characters or hieroglyphics, and much to our joy found that one of the rolls contained the writings of Abraham, another the writings of Joseph of Egypt, etc., – a more full account which will appear in its place, as I proceed to examine or unfold them. Truly we can say, the Lord is beginning to reveal the abundance of peace and truth.” (History of the Church 2:236)
Whenever I see parts of the Mormon scripture trying to pawn off Egyptian writings as a holy message from God, the words of Isaiah come to mind. I always wonder if any Mormon has seen what Isaiah wrote, and if so, what’s their response to God’s warning?
2 Nephi 5:21-23; “And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. 22 And thus saith the Lord God: I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities. 23 And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done.”
Ether 3:15; “And never have I showed myself unto man whom I have created, for never has man believed in me as thou hast.”
D&C 107:53-55; “Three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, and Methuselah, who were all high priests, with the residue of his posterity who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there bestowed upon them his last blessing. 54 And the Lord appeared unto them, and they rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the prince, the archangel. 55 And the Lord administered comfort unto Adam, and said unto him: I have set thee to be at the head; a multitude of nations shall come of thee, and thou art a prince over them forever.”
