September 30 – True Nature of Polytheism. Isaiah 9:6; “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Luke 13:24; “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”

I couldn’t get Jesus’ warning out of my head as I compiled notes for this article. It was telling to me how Smith incorporated real life events out of context to try and finagle his way into the hearts of the unknowing…

Today we’re going on a fieldtrip of sorts. We’re looking back at a major event that shook this country to its core.

On December 16, 1811, America was jolted out of its chairs at the dinner table with an earthquake experts have determined was an 8.5 in magnitude.

The epicenter was located at New Madrid, MO, but people as far away as Virginia felt the ground rumbling beneath their feet.

The Wentworth Letter is worth its weight in gold, if you will.

It provided proof Smith couldn’t possibly be the recipient of the revelations he purportedly received.

What’s so shocking about this is how the Church has deemed it ‘One of the choicest inspired documents ever written’. (Mormon Doctrine, p. 834.)

To summarize, the Wentworth Letter was written by Joe Smith as a response to a reporter/editor of the paper, Chicago Democrat. Mr. Wentworth had written to Smith asking for information about Mormonism on behalf of one of his friends, George Barstow.

What’s important to know about this letter is the date (there are other issues we’ll be addressing over the next few days).  Smith wrote about his experience of Moroni taking place in 1823.

Today we’re looking at an event in Mormon history we briefly checked out a few days ago. As we discovered, visions Smith and friends thought they saw were a result of ingesting local hallucinogens. The other twist in this saga is how the Church deliberately went out of its way to not tell the whole story in a concise manner.

None of the references they list alludes to ‘the rest of the story’, which means the Mormon people are led down another rabbit trail of unknowns.

We’re listing all the references to this event in chronological order, followed by God’s ominous warning of why Joseph’s stories of seeing Jesus are biblically unsound. I originally saw this eerie ‘coincidence’ on another site, which reminded me a lot of Moroni’s 3 visits w/ Smith, and the cock crowing. It’s baffling to me that they aren’t up front about something they’re obviously proud of. The only explanation to the confusion is that they’re hiding something.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

Daniel 3:18; “…be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”

Liahona, ‘Kirtland and the Word of Wisdom,’ July 2017; “While the early Saints lived in Kirtland, Ohio, the Lord told them to build a temple. (Read about what happened after the temple was dedicated in D&C 110.) The Lord also told Joseph Smith to start a school to teach Church leaders about the gospel. Many men at this school smoked or chewed tobacco. Joseph and Emma didn’t like the smoky, messy tobacco. When Joseph asked the Lord what to do about it, he received the revelation we now call the Word of Wisdom. You can read it in D&C 89.

“If”, part 2, Calvary Love by Amy Carmichael; ‘…if the cup of spiritual flattery tastes sweet to me, then I know nothing of Calvary love…’ Thou Givest, They Gather

 History of the Church 6:299-300; “We are now the most noble people on the face of the globe, and we have no occasion to fear tadpoles.

We are designated by the All-seeing Eye to do good, not to stoop to anything low. We are apt to suffer prejudice to get into our hearts on hearing reports. … The reason why I feel so good is because I have a big soul. There are men with small bodies who have got souls like Enoch. We have. We have gathered our big souls from the ends of the earth. The Gospel picks the big souls out of all creation, and we will get the big souls out of all the nations, and we shall have the largest city in the world.

We will gather all the big souls out of every nation. As soon as the Gospel catches hold of noble souls, it brings them all right up to Zion. There is a thing called guiding star. The Gospel is similar. We will have a people great enough to be saved.” – Joseph Smith
