Demonic Names in the Book of Mormon Part 1

Over the past month I’ve received numerous requests asking when, or if, we’d ever talk about our series, Demonic Names in the Book of Mormon – so here it is! Look for the new updates on the day of posting and be sure to share these with the Mormon you know!

 While studying some points of interest in Masonry, I came across some names within their books that sounded familiar to me.

The familiarity became abundantly clear when I opened the Book of Mormon.  I began researching some of the names in the Book of Mormon and their meanings.  I compared them with the Bible, bible dictionaries, and even Webster’s dictionary.

Demonic & Ungodly Names in the Book of Mormon Part 3

      In the past six or so years I’ve written countless articles on many subjects regarding Mormonism, but there are a few subjects that continue to show up for another view and additional insight.  The subject of this article is my case in point.

     The first time I wrote on this subject I received many horrible reviews – all by members of the Church.  The reviews that were favorable of course were from the Christians.  At the request of former Mormons and Christians I was asked to write a sequel so I acquiesced – that was three years ago.  Now I’m receiving more requests to write another so here I am again.  Glory to God for His word, the truth and His guidance!

‘Back by popular demand’as they say,  I went through my old notes and found some other names I think would be of interest to the Mormon, and non-Mormon alike. There were more than 50 names of people and/or places contradicting what Biblical accounts report. Here are just a few of them.


 The name of Chemish so closely resembles the name of Chemosh from the Bible, it’s hard to ignore. In Mormonism the name Chemish belongs to the brother of Ameleki. These two brothers and others, were responsible for writing the book of Omni in the Book of Mormon.

 The official LDS website search engine says this about Chemish:

 The book of Omni: A book translated from the small plates of Nephi in the Book of Mormon. The book has only a single chapter, which contains an account of the wars among the Nephites and Lamanites. Omni wrote only the first three verses of the book. The plates were then passed in turn to Amaron, Chemish, Abinadom, and finally Amaleki.  And it came to pass that I did deliver the plates unto my brother Chemish. He delivered the plates to King Benjamin, king of Zarahemla…”
