September 19 – Matthew 17:1-5; “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

Ah, the life of Joseph Smith. You either love the guy or you don’t. This article isn’t so much about the Mormon Church and Smith’s accomplishments in his relatively short-lived life as it is a chronological look at his behavior pattern.
The young man certainly had a zest for flair and wasted no time displaying acts of grandiose ideals along with misplaced leadership skills. With the drive to lead we oft times find other parts of a personality emerge bordering obsession. If a person like this hasn’t the opportunity for a mentor who can help tame the wild side, you’re usually left with dictators. It’s up to the reader to decide if Smith fit those shoes.
A few weeks ago I posted an article in response to an e-mail we received on the site about our stats on suicides in Utah.
Unfortunately I overlooked the fact that I should have posted a link to my article as a response to John in the comments section…sigh… We heard back from him just a few days ago so once again I’m responding with another article and yep, this time around I’ll be sure to provide a link in the reply section of our comments.
