Is it plausible that the BoM people practiced Christianity while living in both Central and South America for over 1,100 years and left no evidence of their existence on either continent?
Grafting in Whom?
1 Nephi 10:14; “And after the house of Israel should be scattered they should be gathered together again; or, in fine, after the Gentiles had received the fulness of the Gospel, the natural branches of the olive-tree, or the remnants of the house of Israel, should be grafted in, or come to the knowledge of the true Messiah, their Lord and their Redeemer.”

The story of Moroni goes hand in hand with anything to do with Joseph Smith. If there’s no Moroni, there’s no restoration of the gospel and no first vision. Ahh, but the story of the first vision includes the lesser known version that Nephi, not Moroni, showed up to tell Joseph about the restoration.
Shoddy Swords and Scalps
Alma 44:12; “And now when Moroni had said these words, Zerahemnah retained his sword, and he was angry with Moroni, and he rushed forward that he might slay Moroni; but as he raised his sword, behold, one of Moroni’s soldiers smote it even to the earth, and it broke by the hilt; and he also smote Zerahemnah that he took off his scalp and it fell to the earth. And Zerahemnah withdrew from before them into the midst of his soldiers.”
Psalm 119:105; “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

Deuteronomy 12:32; “What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”
Our example in the Deuteronomy verse above is a gift to us from the Lord and should be used as guidance in how we’re to treat scripture and His commandments. When the Bible says not to add to His words or take away from it, we should heed His wise counsel and remember it when we come across things like we see with Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon.

Book of Mormon & Dates in History
A few years ago I took a bible study class on the book of Jeremiah. Now I’ve been taking bible study classes non-stop since I was saved back on Palm Sunday of ’93 and I have to say that just like every other Christian I learn a lot, but there are times when the studies are more significant than others. The study of Jeremiah did that for me.

The Book of Questions
Helaman – BC 52-2
I’ve always thought of Helaman as the book of questions. While the entire Book of Mormon has many unanswered questions this one book has always made me wonder why my people can’t see through the lies of Joseph Smith. Today we’re looking at just a couple of things.

Inspired of God? Difficulties in the Book of Mormon
“All scripturei s given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16.
The key word here is inspiration. This word in the Greek is theopneustos. It means God breathed. Look anywhere in the Bible, there is nothing in it that contradicts itself, there are no mistakes, and it is all one hundred percent perfect! Archaeologists will sometimes use the Bible to search for the spots they want to investigate. There are hundreds of documents which prove the Bible to be true, from Josephus of the first century to the Dead Sea Scrolls. Each time they find something new, it validates what the Bible says!

March 26 – Romans1:25; “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. A-men.”
Today’s witnessing tip is a classic example of how Joseph Smith went about tricking people. The teachings of the Church would have their people believe one thing with the teaching of their god being a risen man who is progressive, but in the scripture below they say something totally different. Ask your Mormon loved one what they think of this contradiction.
Mormon 9:10; “And now if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god, who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves, a god who is not a God of miracles”.

March 23 – John 1:18; “No man hath seen God at any time…the Only Begotten Son hath declared Him”.
The whole Mormon story depends on what or whom Joseph Smith talked to in the grove of trees. He claims it was God the Father and His Son. In light of the above verse, one has to wonder.
“God, the Eternal Father and His Son appeared to Joseph Smith”. A Marvelous Work and Wonder, pg. 7, by LeGrand Richards.

March 20 – Ex. 12:9 says; “Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it”.
God was rather clear when He told the Israelites not to eat raw meat, but in the Book of Mormon this isn’t a problem with their god. Ask them why this would be so.
1 Nephi 17:2; “And so great were the blessings of the Lord upon us, that while we did live upon raw meat in the wilderness, our women did give plenty of suck for their children, and were strong, yea, even like unto the men; and they began to bear their journeyings without murmurings”.

March 19 – Numbers 14:25; “(Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley). To morrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea”.
Use this verse as a geography lesson for the Mormon. There has never been a river that empties into the Red Sea. It is surrounded by wilderness (desert) only.
1 Nephi 2:8; “And it came to pass that he called the name of the river, Laman, and it emptied into the Red Sea; and the valley was in the borders near the mouth thereof.”
