Journal of Discourses 3:265-266 “This revelation, which God gave to Joseph, was for the express purpose of providing a channel for the organization of tabernacles, for those spirits to occupy who have been reserved to come forth in the kingdom of God, and that they might not be obliged to take tabernacles out of the kingdom of God. …

Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned… …but the Saints who live their religion will be exalted…” —— Brigham Young, Provo, Utah, July 14, 1855. (more…)

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

Doctrines of Salvation 1:58 “THE FIRST MAN OF ALL MEN.” Many revelations attest the truth that Adam was the first man. The Prophet corrected the genealogy of Christ as given in Luke so that it includes this statement: “Adam who was formed of God, and the first man upon the earth.” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 107:48-52 “Enoch was twenty-five years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam; and he was sixty-five and Adam blessed him 49 And he saw the Lord, and he walked with him, and was before his face continually; and he walked with God three hundred and sixty-five years, making him four hundred and thirty years old when he was translated. 50 Methuselah was one hundred years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam. 51 Lamech was thirty-two years old when he was ordained under the hand of Seth. 52 Noah was ten years old when he was ordained under the hand of Methuselah.” (more…)

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 340-41 “I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, “In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.”” — April 2, 1843

“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” 1 Timothy 4:7

 The LDS Church claims that in 1847 Brigham Young declared, ‘This is the place’, meaning the Church had found its new forever home in the western end of the Rockies known as the ‘Wasatch Front’.

From the onset of their arrival, the truth about their polygamous ways were preached from the pulpit. Along with the false prophecy of the ‘New and Everlasting Covenant’, came other false prophecies.

Today we’re looking at the anniversary of Brigham’s infamous explanation, and his addition to Joe Smith’s false prophecy of planets, stars, and the moon’s inhabitants. (more…)

Lectures on Faith, 62 “The whole visible creation, as it now exists, is the effect of faith. It was faith by which it was framed, and it is by the power of faith that it continues in its organized form, and by which the planets move round their orbits and sparkle forth their glory.” — Joseph Smith (more…)

Lectures on Faith, p. 93 “Shem was Melchizedek… From this definite account of driving the “nations apart, when the ancient hills did bow,” all reflecting minds may judge that man was scattered over the whole face of the earth. And with the superior knowledge of men like Noah, Shem (who was Melchizedek) and Abraham, the father of the faithful, three cotemporaries, holding the keys of the highest order of the priesthood: connecting the creation, and fall; memorising the righteousness of Enoch; and glorying in the construction of the ark for the salvation of a world; still retaining the model and pattern of that ark, than which a great, ah, we might say, half so great a vessel has never been built since; for another ark, be it remembered, with such a ponderous living freight will never be prepared as a vessel of mercy by command of Jehovah. Times and Seasons, Vol. 5, p. 746. Nauvoo, Illinois, December 15, 1844. Elder John Taylor, Editor.)” (more…)

2 Nephi 9:41 “O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One. Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.” (more…)

The Joseph Smith Revelations “#22. The text in the journal says that Smith also saw Michael in this vision. Prior to this time, it was taught that Michael was another name for Adam. Oliver Cowdery wrote in a letter in January 1834, “I have been in formed from a proper source that the Angel Michael is no less than our father Adam” (Cowdery to John Whitmer, 1 Jan. 1834, Oliver Cowdery Letterbook, 15, Henry E. Huntington Library, San Marino, California).” — by H. Michael Marquardt (more…)

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.” (more…)

 Today we’re looking at the confusion Joe Smith caused when he attempted to rewrite God’s perfect, holy word. As you’ll see in the Church’s history below, chaos ruled. If he had embraced truth, he would’ve rejoiced over Isaiah 40:8

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

Instead, Mr. Smith claimed God revealed to him, and Sidney Rigdon in 1832 they needed to focus on rewriting the Bible.

Ensign, ‘Joseph Smith, the Mighty Prophet of the Restoration,’ May 1976, p. 94 “As to this man, Joseph Smith, let us say – Here is a man who was chosen before he was born, who was numbered with the noble and great in the councils of eternity before the foundations of this world were laid. “Along with Adam and Enoch and Noah and Abraham, he sat in council with the Gods when the plans were made to create an earth whereon the hosts of our Father’s children might dwell. “Under the direction of the Holy One and of Michael, who became the first man, he participated in the creative enterprises of the Father.” — Bruce R. McConkie (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation 3:239 “HEBER C. KIMBALL TELLS OF DEATH OF ZELPH. Elder Heber C. Kimball who was present recorded the following in his journal: “While on our way we felt anxious to know who the person was who had been killed by that arrow. It was made known to Joseph that he had been an officer who fell in battle, in the last destruction among the Lamanites, and his name was Zelph. This caused us to rejoice much, to think that God was so mindful of us as to show these things to his servant. Brother Joseph had inquired of the Lord, and it was made known in a vision.”” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Quest for Refuge, p 165“I shall have a son born to me, and his name shall be David; and on him, in some future time, will rest the responsibility that now rests upon me. (Unpublished sermon of Brigham Young, 7 Oct. 1863, Young papers.)” – Marvin S. Hill

Words of Joseph Smith, p 331 “A murderer; for instance one that sheds innocent Blood Cannot have forgiveness, David sought repentance at the hand of God Carefully with tears, but he could ownly get it through Hell, he got a promise that his soul should not be left in Hell, Although David was a King he never did obtain the spirit & power of Elijah & the fulness of the Priesthood, & the priesthood that he received & the throne & kingdom of David is to be taken from him & given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his linage.” [sic] (more…)

“Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.” Jeremiah 14:14

 The late prophet, Joseph Fielding Smith, boldly stated the Church must stand or fall on Smith’s story. He further proclaimed his uncle was either divinely called, or was one of the biggest frauds of this earth.

Today we’re looking at just one example of the fraud this man committed, and how leaders since that time continue to perpetuate his lies.

1954

Doctrines of Salvation 1:188 “CHURCH STANDS OR FALLS WITH JOSEPH SMITH. Mormonism, as it is called, must stand or fall on the story of Joseph Smith. He was either a prophet of God, divinely called, properly appointed and commissioned, or he was one of the biggest frauds this world has ever seen. There is no middle ground.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1954-1956 (more…)

Like many things in Mormonism, a grain of truth is usually mixed in with lies. Case in point today is the one verse in Doctrine & Covenants below. They’ve attached links to key words inside the verse leading readers to faraway lands that contradict their own tenets, and has nothing to do with what you just read.

All that aside, we’re taking a look at the contradiction Joe Smith obviously inserted into his sacred prophecies. The other side trips they take you on will be explored at another time. We’ve left them intact here to show the rabbit trails they take readers on.

Doctrine and Covenants 130:11 “And a white stone is given to each of those who come into the celestial kingdom, whereon is a new name written, which no man knoweth save he that receiveth it. The new name is the key word.” (more…)

 Journal of Discourses 6:6; “We say that God himself is a self-existent being. Who told you so? It is correct enough; but how did it get into your heads? Who told you that man did not exist in like manner upon the same principle? Man  does exist upon the same principles. God made a tabernacle and put a spirit into it, and it became a living soul. [Referred to the old Bible.] How does it read in the Hebrew? It does not say in the Hebrew that God created the spirit of man. It says, “God made man out of the earth, and put into him Adam’s spirit, and so became a living body.

The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is coequal with God himself. I know that my testimony is true…” – Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, April 6, 1844
