Galatians 5:22-23; “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

joseph smith 3Today we’re looking at claims the Book of Mormon makes about itself, and if you know anything about Mormonism, you probably have an opinion about it as well! Outside opinions can be helpful, but what does the book itself say about its own content?

On the website JosephSmithAcademy.org, you can find a ton of pro-Mormon info on Joseph Smith. On this site there’s also a list of prophecies he gave, and I found it interesting there was no comment on how the one we’ve listed here was false.

philodibblePhilo Dibble, Hyrum L. Andrus and Helen Mae Andrus, comps., They Knew the Prophet [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1974], 70; “While celebrating the 4th of July, in 1838, at Far West, there came up a thunder shower, and the lightning struck our liberty pole and shivered it to pieces. Joseph walked around on the splinters and said: “As the pole was splintered, so shall the nations of the earth be!”

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, ‘I have a Question,’ OCTOBER 1973; “Why was it necessary for Elijah to be taken into heaven as he was? Are there other prominent persons who did not taste of death—and do we regard Moses as being translated instead of dying?

Alma P. Burton

Since Elijah and Moses were foreordained to perform earthly ordinances before the death and resurrection of Christ, it was necessary that they retain their physical bodies beyond the natural time of their lives. President Joseph Fielding Smith has written:

Mormon Decisions 10They say the bad thing about telling a lie is having to remember everything you said. Apparently Joe Smith didn’t get the memo on that one.BoM3in1

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’…

Mormon Decisions 10How does the Church define ‘the first resurrection’?

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.

Mormon Decisions 10This 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!

“…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)

Mormon Decisions 10Whenever 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?
