2 Nephi 4:5 “But behold, my sons and my daughters, I cannot go down to my grave save I should leave a blessing upon you; for behold, I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go ye will not depart from it.” c. BC 588-570 (more…)

Alma 17:36-39; “But Ammon stood forth and began to cast stones at them with his sling; yea, with mighty power he did sling stones amongst them; and thus he slew a certain number of them insomuch that they began to be astonished at his power; nevertheless they were angry because of the slain of their brethren, and they were determined that he should fall; therefore, seeing that they could not hit him with their stones, they came forth with clubs to slay him. 37 But behold, every man that lifted his club to smite Ammon, he smote off their arms with his sword; for he did withstand their blows by smiting their arms with the edge of his sword, insomuch that they began to be astonished, and began to flee before him; yea, and they were not few in number; and he caused them to flee by the strength of his arm. 38 Now six of them had fallen by the sling, but he slew none save it were their leader with his sword; and he smote off as many of their arms as were lifted against him, and they were not a few. 39 And when he had driven them afar off, he returned and they watered their flocks and returned them to the pasture of the king, and then went in unto the king, bearing the arms which had been smitten off by the sword of Ammon, of those who sought to slay him; and they were carried in unto the king for a testimony of the things which they had done.” (more…)

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: But the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

The LDS Church tells us their Book of Mormon is “a second witness to the Bible.

However, we’re wondering…

Who needs something that condemns our Lord, and what He’s said in His word?

2 Nephi 29:3, 6; “And because my words shall hiss forth—many of the Gentiles shall say: A Bible! A Bible! We have got a Bible, and there cannot be any more Bible. 6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews?”

In their routine fashion of diverting attention via means of confusion, the Church tweaked what it plagiarized from the prophet Isaiah.

The Church’s message on the importance of baptism has been stretched to its limit. They’ve made their canon so confusing, it’s difficult to determine which is worse – lying about the Israelites practice of baptism in the BC era (which they didn’t do), or retro-engineering what Joe Smith plagiarized from Isaiah’s prophecy.

Let’s sort this out to you can lovingly share this with the Mormon you know, and give demonstrative evidence of why their canon was written to confuse them.

Here’s what the original Book of Mormon said –

1830 Book of Mormon, p. 52; “Hearken and hear this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the Lord . . .” [emp. mine]

Alma 7:10; “And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.”

Today’s topic comes courtesy of Lee Baker – yay! Thanks Lee!

Yesterday I received an e-mail from Lee and Kathy stating they were meeting with a college student who was on the 2nd week of the Missionary Lesson Plan. They sent the note asking if I’d look over the list of Book of Mormon scriptures pointing out that God is eternal and Triune.

It was an awesome list we’ll be sharing in the next few days.

One thing Lee and Kathy asked in the paper they sent is our question for today.

Psalm 119:89 “For ever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven.”

Yesterday we looked at a random question someone had e-mailed us here at LAM. It reminded me of God’s omnipresence in the lives of believers. When we stop to think of it, the body of Christ is a living example that Jesus keeps His promise! Mt. 16:18.

As great as that news was, the e-mail I received last night is at the  other end of the spectrum. The  words of the gentleman who wrote in is heartbreaking. He sounded like a typical Mormon in the tone he used, which only serves to spur me on in this work. His e-mail is listed below, followed by our response.

The one thing I hope to get across in posting this is that we’re not here to bash Mormons. We’re heartbroken they’ve been so deceived, and have obviously spent exorbitant amounts of time in their quest to vindicate Joe Smith’s false gospel. Please, pray for this man, won’t you?

We’ve not included his name, nor have we changed any spelling in his note –
