Archive for the ‘History of Mormonism’ Category

Awhile ago I discovered a telling reference in the book, ‘Mormons, How to Witness to Them’ by John R. Farkas and David A. Reed. Their work is a great reminder of how wrong Mormonism is, and how the Church goes out of its way to deceive.

Journal of Discourses 1:347 “They suppose that the “Mormons” have turned a somerset, have apostatized, and altered their character and creed as a people.
