Alma Chapter 1; “The account of Alma, who was the son of Alma, the first and chief judge over the people of Nephi, and also the high priest over the Church. An account of the reign of the judges, and the wars and contentions among the people. And also an account of a war between the Nephites and the Lamanites, according to the record of Alma, the first and chief judge.” – BC 91-88

Conference Report, October 1961, pp. 18-20; “Now the Lord has placed us on probation as members of the Church. He has given us the Book of Mormon, which is the lesser part, to build up our faith through our obedience to the counsels which it contains, and when we ourselves, members of the Church, are willing to keep the commandments as they have been given to us and show our faith as the Nephites did for a short period of time, then the Lord is ready to bring forth the other record and give it to us, but we are not ready now to receive it. Why? Because we have not lived up to the requirements in this probationary state in the reading of the record which had been given to us and in following its counsels.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

2 Timothy 3:13-14; “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them”.

As we noted yesterday, in an effort to fix a major faux pas, the Church rewrote chapter headings after their own apologists at FAIR publicly shamed the Church’s hierarchy about their initial activity of placing them there c. 1920.

A very good source to read about this can be found at TheMormonDelusion.com. My disclaimer is that after the author of this site left the Church, he became an atheist (very sad), but this shouldn’t deter from the historical data he provided in his expose` of the Church’s shenanigans.

And thus, saith the Lord…or the LDS Church, and Joseph Smith anyway…

Today and tomorrow we’re looking at one subject matter, and that’d be coins in the Book of Mormon. Coins in the Book of Mormon, however, is the cause of the three topics we’re looking at this time around. We’re pulling our resources from Alma, and 3rd Nephi which are both found in the Book of Mormon, as well as a verse in Matthew’s gospel. That’s quite a list, so let’s get started!

The Improvement Era, Vol. 64, No. 12, December 1961, pp. 924-925Joseph Fielding Smith's Response BoM Changes; “During the past week or two I have received a number of letters from different parts of the United States written by people, some of whom at least are a little concerned because they have been approached by enemies of the Church and enemies of the Book of Mormon, who have made the statement that there have been one or two or more thousand changes in the Book of Mormon since the first edition was published. Well, of course, there is no truth in that statement.

“It is true that when the Book of Mormon was printed the printer was a man who was unfriendly. The publication of the book was done under adverse circumstances, and there were a few errors, mostly typographical – conditions that arise in most any book that is being published – but there was not one thing in the Book of Mormon or in the second edition or any other edition since that in any way contradicts the first edition, and such changes as were made were made by the Prophet Joseph Smith because under those adverse conditions the Book of Mormon was published. But there was no change of doctrine.

“Now, these Sons of Belial who circulate these reports evidently know better. I will not use the word that is in my mind.” – Joseph Fielding Smith
