Posts Tagged ‘false prophet Joseph Smith’

Leaving Mormonism brings many new discoveries, some more shocking than others.

This particular subject matter was one of the most surprising for me based on its brazen audacity to openly lie to the Mormon people.

Little did I know as a Mormon, the Church has spent an extraordinary amount of time retro-engineering their beloved founder’s prophetic wisdom.

Not only have they done this with their signature canon, the BoM, but they went so far as to touch up the Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, Joe Smith’s History, and even the History of the Church as well.

We know they’ve rewritten the canon simply because they’ve told us so in their release of the ‘Joseph Smith Papers’, which contains sidebar notes telling us of the revisions.

Today we’re checking out their ‘handiwork’ by comparing the Book of Commandments written in 1833, with the Doctrine and Covenants which they’ve dated as 1828. (As an FYI, their spelling errors have been left intact.)

‘For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.’ Matthew 24:24.

 Today is part 2 of our look at an article in the latest church magazine, Liahona, ‘What Did Moroni Teach Joseph Smith?’, January 2021.

Yesterday we looked at five lies, some of which included witchcraft, necromancy, and Joseph’s ill-gotten fame.

Today we’ll see how neither Moroni, nor Joseph, opted for defending the Lord. Moroni did nothing more than feed a teenager’s inflated ego. Based on the Church’s track record, one must wonder if this even happened at all.

If you’re LDS, we want to reiterate we don’t say these things to demean or bash you. Our hearts are broken for the way this church has lied, and led members away from Jesus, not to Him.

We pray you’ll look at the evidence and compare all of it objectively – your very soul depends on it!

As Paul Harvey used to say…now for the rest of this story!

Why Mormons Can’t Celebrate Good Friday

Originally posted March 2013

I’m certain I’m not alone when I say that Good Friday always gives us lots to think upon and pray about! Each of us has our own list of reasons why we’re grateful God intervened in our life, and we each carry our own set of memories why this day is special for us.

One of the most memorable experiences for me dates back to my days in Junior High School of all things. At the time I had become friends with a handful of other girls and as it turned out I was the only Mormon. My small group of friends included a Catholic, a Presbyterian, an Episcopalian, and a Methodist. I began noticing my Catholic friend only ate fish on Fridays and while all the girls had their own set of doctrinal creeds they held dear, their customs afforded me a front row seat to other cultures right there in the heart of Utah Mormonism. I began wondering what it’d be like to attend a church that had a cross somewhere on the building.
