Messenger and Advocate, Vol. 2, No. 7, pp 289, 300, April 1836; “I am aware, that many who profess to preach the gospel, complain against their brethren of the same faith, who reside in the south, and are ready to withdraw the hand of fellowship because they will not renounce the principle of slavery and raise their voice against every thing of the kind. This must be a tender point, and one which should call forth the candid reflection of all men, and especially before they advance in an opposition calculated to lay waste the fair States of the South, and set loose, upon the world a community of people who might peradventure, overrun our country and violate the most sacred principles of human society, – chastity and virtue.” – Joseph Smith

I came upon a tangled web of lies produced by the Church that I had no idea existed. So today we’re taking a look at events that took place at the transfiguration and comparing the Bible with what the LDS Church has to say about it.
I’m certain this won’t be the last discovery on Mormon history I find, but what it does right now is add to the long list of reasons why I am beyond grateful the good Lord plucked me out of my nightmare. Thank You Jesus!

Zechariah 11:4-6a; “Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.”
Matthew 23:1-4; “Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”
What concerns me about this is the psyche of the Mormon people. This didn’t just happen way back when and then stopped somewhere along the way. This total adoration and reverence for the founder of Mormonism continues on today and is obviously taking place in the schools in Utah in modern times.
This particular devotional is laboriously long so I’ve cut it down to a manageable length, although it’s still a little long winded. See for yourself how they’ve elevated Smith to God status and encouraged young people to all but have conversations with a dead person, which by the way is necromancy.
