Isaiah 8:20 “To the law and to the testimony: If they speak not according to this word, It is because there is no light in them.”

Today we’re checking out what Joe Smith had to say about Enoch. To be sure, Smith was never short on opinions, but one of his favorite subjects was on the man from the Bible who’s only mentioned eleven times.

Little is known about Enoch outside of the eight verses we have in Genesis, and once each in Jude, Luke, and Hebrews. What we can say with certainty is that Enoch walked with God before He took him up to heaven as He did Elijah. We also know Enoch was 365 years old when he was translated. (more…)

D&C 84:21-22 “And without the ordinances thereof, and the authority of the priesthood, the power of godliness is not manifest unto men in the flesh; 22 For without this no man can see the face of God, even the Father, and live.” — Joseph Smith, ‘Kirtland, OH, September 22 and 23, 1832’. (more…)

Yesterday we saw Russell Nelson proclaim his delight in Joe Smith’s insights regarding the Bible, and how they were ‘amazingly consistent’.

Today we’re wondering how Mr. Nelson would explain Smith’s false prophecy in calling God a liar…

The very foundation of Mormonism declares God’s word to be wrong, and therefore, all of Christianity has been worshiping the wrong God.

History of the Church 6:305-306 “It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see.

These are incomprehensible ideas to some, but they are simple. It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with him as one man converses with another, and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did….

Here, then, is eternal life—to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all gods have done before you, namely, by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace, from exaltation to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to dwell in everlasting burnings, and to sit in glory, as do those who sit enthroned in everlasting power.” — Joseph Smith, April 1844 (more…)

Revelation 22:19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

Today we’re looking at part of D&C 32. The entire section contains only 5 verses, but its significance is how it contains 5 failed prophecies of Joe Smith.

For now we’re looking at v. 3. We’ve provided all 5 verses at the end of this article, along with the LDS link. (more…)

Galatians 1:8 “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

Today we’re comparing a so-called prophecy from Joe Smith’s ‘Doctrine and Covenants’, to God’s infallible word!

We have just one question which happens to be the title of our article today ~

Are Smith’s plagiarized prophecies inspired of God, or his own invention? (more…)

Joseph Smith’s Commentary on the Bible, p. 112 “Christ says, “No man knoweth the day or the hour when the Son of Man cometh.” . . . Did Christ speak this as a general principle throughout all generations? Oh no; he spoke in the present tense. No man that was then living upon the footstool of God knew the day or the hour. But he did not say that there was no man throughout all generations that should know the day or the hour. No, for this would be in flat contradiction with other scripture, for the prophet says that God will do nothing but what he will reveal unto his servants the prophets [Amos 3:7]. Consequently, if it is not made known to the prophets it will not come to pass.” – Joseph Smith  (more…)

Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 112-113 “… who can describe an angel of light? If Satan should appear as one in glory, who can tell his color, his signs, his appearance, his glory—or what is the manner of his manifestation?

Who can drag into daylight and develop the hidden mysteries of the false spirits that so frequently are made manifest among the Latter-day Saints?

We answer that no man can do this without the Priesthood…A man must have the discerning of spirits before he can drag into daylight this hellish influence and unfold it unto the world in all its soul-destroying, diabolical, and horrid colors; for nothing is a greater injury to the children of men than to be under the influence of a false spirit when they think they have the Spirit of God. History of the Church 4:571581.” (more…)
