 As you read through our LDS reference today, remember to heed Paul’s warning!

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

Joseph Smith’s explanation of the Nephite currency is a ruse. Like events in the Hollywood movie ‘National Treasure’, the Book of Mormon sends readers on endless trails of secret meanings, and ‘it might be here’ scenarios. If you look at just one more thing…

Alma 11:4-19 “Now these are the names of the different pieces of their gold, and of their silver, according to their value. And the names are given by the Nephites, for they did not reckon after the manner of the Jews who were at Jerusalem; neither did they measure after the manner of the Jews; but they altered their reckoning and their measure, according to the minds and the circumstances of the people, in every generation, until the reign of the judges, they having been established by king Mosiah.

Gospel Doctrine, Chapter 25, p. 480 “THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH. Brother Woodruff, in the course of his remarks, made the assertion that Joseph Smith was the greatest prophet that has ever lived, of whom we have any knowledge, save and except Jesus Christ himself…Today there is not another man, perhaps, who has figured in religion, whose name is so wide-spread among the nations, as that of Joseph Smith.” – Joseph F. Smith

2 Timothy 3:15; “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,  which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

 The adjective heartbroken doesn’t do justice to what I, and millions of others, have experienced upon the discovery the Book of Mormon is a fraud. Every fiber of my being was tightly wrapped in identifying myself as a Mormon first, and all other things second.

Understanding the devastating loss Mormons go through when they leave the Church is the first step in knowing how to reach out to them. That said, Christians also know there is healing in the gospel of God’s Word; the Bible! This is where we take all things to examine and test what we hear from others.

When leaving the Church there are countless things to learn not only about the Bible, but the endless lies Joseph Smith and company has produced in the Church’s 180+ years of existence.

One of the topics we’ve focused on is the BoM. We’re compared the BoM to everything from biblical truth, to historical events. See our page Book of Mormon Research Topics A-Z on the front page. Today we’re looking at the plagiarisms. (more…)

God Knows May 10 – Only God knows the future. Heb. 11:8, 13; “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went…These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

Why I Believe the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God, pp. 4-5 “Now, once we become thoroughly convinced that the Book of Mormon is true, it will, as I have said solve any theological problem that may confront us. Do we want knowledge concerning God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost? We can get it in the Book of Mormon. Would we know concerning the pre-existence of spirits – the fall of man and the atonement – the principles and ordinances of the Gospel of Christ – the state in which spirits of men live between the time of death and the resurrection – we can find it in the Book of Mormon.” — William A. Morton, 1918 (more…)
