Today we’re looking at a vision Joe Smith claimed he received from the Lord while in a council meeting with many of the Church members present. This vision is supposedly when Smith saw his twelve apostles in the Celestial Kingdom, but there are multiple problems in this passage taken from the History of the Church 2:381. You can read it in full by clicking on the link.

Today we’re looking at the text to find out why this is false, and asking a few questions!

 October 7 – Was Jesus begotten? Luke 1:35; “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”

Quick! Can you share info about the 3rd major event in the Bible with an unbeliever?

1.God created the universe.

2.The Fall of Adam and Eve.

3.Cain and Abel.

While I realize my list is a subjective, ‘Reader’s Digest’ version of the Bible’s opening scenes, I would argue the majority of Christians are well aware of what took place at the beginning of time.

Furthermore, I’m just as sure the majority, if not all Christians, would know where to find the events of Cain, and Abel.

In Genesis 4:1-2 we read,

“And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 2 And she again bare his brother Abel…”

Now, you’re probably wondering okay…but what’s up?

Matthew 7:15; “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Despite constant reassurances from leaders of the Church they can be trusted, it turns out they’re a picture perfect example of the wolf in sheep’s clothing!

The LDS Church makes it a priority to remind people their self-ordained prophets would never lead people astray. The following is just one of several examples anyone can find in their writings/teaching manuals. We found our example in the LDS Student Manual, The Living Prophet, the President of the Church

“You keep your eye upon him whom the Lord called, and I say to you now, knowing that I stand in this position, you don’t need to worry about the President of the Church ever leading people astray, because the Lord would remove him out of his place before He would ever allow that to happen” (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1996], 533).

Journal of Discourses 11:269; “It is the word of the Lord, and I wish to say to you, and all the world, that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. […] The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those who enter into polygamy.” —  Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake, August 19, 1866

Journal of Discourses 4:77-78; “I never preached to the world but what the cry was, “…Joe Smith has done thus and so.” I would tell the people that they did not know him, and I did, and that I knew him to be a good man… He may get drunk every day of his life, sleep with his neighbor’s wife every night, run horses and gamble, I do not care anything about that…But the doctrine he has produced will save you and me, and the whole world; and if you can find fault with that, find it.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, November 9, 1856

Doctrine and Covenants 50:28; “But no man is possessor of all things except he be purified and cleansed from all sin.”
