Jacob 5:3, 41; “For behold, thus saith the Lord, I will liken thee, O house of Israel, like unto a tame olive-tree, which a man took and nourished in his vineyard; and it grew, and waxed old, and began to decay. 41 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard wept, and said unto the servant: What could I have done more for my vineyard?”

While researching info for another article the other day, I came upon a few images of the infamous Hill Cumorah, aka Ramah Hill, that sits right outside of Joe Smith’s hometown, Palmyra, New York.

There’s nothing wrong with the images in and of themselves, but they got me to thinking about Smith’s claims in the Book of Mormon. Things like these often serve as another reminder to me of how the Church isn’t true.

If they truly loved the God of the Bible, why don’t they turn their attention to biblical events, and teach about tangible evidences we can see, feel, touch in the true ‘Promised Land’? Just as God has revealed it physically, He’s also revealed Himself to us spiritually as it says in Romans.

Romans 1:19; “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.”

“Never allow anything to deflect you from insight into Jesus Christ. It is the test of whether you are spiritual or not. To be unspiritual means that other things have a growing fascination for you.

Since mine eyes have looked on Jesus,
I’ve lost sight of all beside,
So enchained my spirit’s vision,
Gazing on the Crucified.”

 Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

salt lake mormon temple 23 Nephi 17:7 “Have ye any that are sick among you? Bring them hither. Have ye any that are lame, or blind, or halt, or maimed, or leprous, or that are withered, or that are deaf, or that are afflicted in any manner? Bring them hither and I will heal them, for I have compassion upon you; my bowels are filled with mercy.”

A Fall Upward

Mormon Decisions 102 Nephi 2:22-25; “And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end. 23 And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin. 24 But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things. 25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.”

James 1:13-15; “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
