 Christian Churches Hatched in Hell

Journal of Discourses 6:176 “Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth.” – Brigham Young

In the 1830’s Americans were in the infancy stages of the public education system; the majority of Americans were part of the agricultural economy; four times as many immigrants came into the country in that decade than the previous one; Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain were all born in the early to mid 1830’s, the Alamo took place, and TX became a state (1836); and notably the song, Jesus Loves Me was written in 1837 by Anna Warner.

In addition to these significant events another person who added to the course of history would write a religious book some referred to as the “Golden Bible”.

Eighteen-thirty is the year J. Smith published the first edition of the Book of Mormon, and formed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to Smith a handful of major events had taken place in the previous years, causing him to act upon the revelation he said God had given to him.

The most incredible ‘revelation’ is in the Pearl of Great Price under Joseph Smith Testimony. In it he claims he went to a grove in the forest to ask God which church he should join, and God appeared in the flesh with his Son Jesus Christ.

They went on to tell him not to join any of the churches because they were all wrong, and had become the “Whore of Babylon”. (more…)

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

Doctrines of Salvation 3:224 “At the command of the Lord, however, Moroni also sealed up the greater things in this vision and also the interpreters-which were the same “two stones” had by the Brother of Jared-so that this vision should not be made known even in our day among the Gentiles, in the day of their wickedness; it could not be revealed “until the day that they shall repent of their iniquity, and become clean before the Lord.” So we today do not have the fulness of the account written and sealed up by the Brother of Jared and again sealed by Moroni. This part of the record the Prophet Joseph Smith was forbidden to translate. We have, then, received but the “lesser part.”” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

 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…)
