2 Samuel 22:31; “As for God, his way is perfect; The word of the Lord is tried: He is a buckler to all them that trust in him.”

Despite Joseph Smith’s illustrious promise the Book of Mormon is ‘the most correct book on the face of the earth’, one can find thousands upon thousands of errors. We’re looking at just one of those notorious faux pas’ here.

Today’s mistake has to do with the wrong info for locations. Here we go!

2 Nephi 19:1; “Nevertheless, the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, and afterwards did more grievously afflict by the way of the Red Sea beyond Jordan in Galilee of the nations.

2 Nephi 25:5-7; “Yea, and my soul delighteth in the words of Isaiah, for I came out from Jerusalem, and mine eyes hath beheld the things of the Jews, and I know that the Jews do understand the things of the prophets, and there is none other people that understand the things which were spoken unto the Jews like unto them, save it be that they are taught after the manner of the things of the Jews. 6 But behold, I, Nephi, have not taught my children after the manner of the Jews; but behold, I, of myself, have dwelt at Jerusalem, wherefore I know concerning the regions round about; and I have made mention unto my children concerning the judgments of God, which hath come to pass among the Jews, unto my children, according to all that which Isaiah hath spoken, and I do not write them. 7 But behold, I proceed with mine own prophecy, according to my plainness; in the which I know that no man can err; nevertheless, in the days that the prophecies of Isaiah shall be fulfilled men shall know of a surety, at the times when they shall come to pass.”

As I was on the web last night looking at my email I noticed a video ad that asked the questions; “How do I forgive?”, “Will God help me? Where can I find happiness? “. These questions were followed by the caption, “The Book of Mormon: Real Answers, Real Questions”, along with a place to click to learn more.

Clicking the learn more button will take you to mormon.org, and a page with the heading-

God’s help is within your reach”

The Saints Herald, pp. 310-311; “For, when acting as his scribe, your father would dictate hour after hour; and when after meals, or after interruptions, he would at once begin where he had left without either seeing the manuscript, or any portion of it read to him. This was a usual thing· for him to do. It would have been improbable that a learned man could do this; and for one so ignorant and unlearned as he was, it was simply impossible…  …a common expression among all those who were intimate with the scenes in the coming- forth of the book, to use the word “key,” “stone,” “interpreters,” all meaning the same namely, the Urim and Thummim. …

The chief witnesses all agree… The Book of Mormon is the most ancient history of America, its people and its antiquities, that is now extant.

It is also the most correct and reliable… … and was translated from the language found on the plates into English by means of the Urim and Thummim, which was received with the record.”

First off, I have to admit that I’ve never been able to figure out how Joe Smith was able to translate gold plates as he gazed into a hat while magical sentences, and/or letters appeared…be that as it may…

Today proved to be an interesting day in the Lord! I received an e-mail from a good friend and fellow ministry worker, Lee Baker. He told me, and others, about the Church’s latest announcement made earlier today. See Ensign, ‘Joseph Smith: Strength Out of Weakness,’ December 2017 for the full story.

They’ve officially recognized Smith was gazing into his hat while translating the gold plates! Boy, oh boy, right? Wrong!
