March 19 – Geography problems in the BoM. 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’s 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.”
