Mark 7:7 “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Jesus’ warning is a good reminder of what pseudo-Christian groups have done to lead people away from Him. These groups will assign and malign His precious word by using all, or part of what He teaches in an effort to drag everyone down with them.

Those who’ve done this typically don’t stop at just God’s word, oh no! They’ll also dip into stealing the works of others as well.

TodayinMormonHistory.com; “– 50 years ago today – Nov 27,1967 — New York Metropolitan Museum of Art gives to LDS church the original Egyptian papyri upon which Joseph Smith based “Book of Abraham” in Pearl of Great Price. Scholars and church officials authenticate papyri as the same used by Smith. Apostle N. Eldon Tanner states the discovery of the papyri will finally prove Joseph Smith could translate ancient documents.

Unfortunately, Egyptologists, LDS and non-LDS, verify that these papyri are typical “Book of Breathings” in form and content.

Church officials begin repressing the story that the original papyri have been discovered and are in their possession. –– Quinn, D. Michael, The Mormon Hierarchy: Extensions of Power, Appendix 5, Selected Chronology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1848-1996.”

Ensign, “The Keystone of Our Religion,” January 2004; “It is important to know what the Book of Mormon is not. It is not primarily a history, although much of what it contains is historical. …The test for understanding this sacred book is preeminently spiritual. An obsession with secular knowledge rather than spiritual understanding will make its pages difficult to unlock.” – James Faust

1 Nephi 17:11; “And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did make a bellows wherewith to blow the fire, of the skins of beasts; and after I had made a bellows, that I might have wherewith to blow the fire, I did smite two stones together that I might make fire.”

Doctrine and Covenants 85:6-8; “Yea, thus saith the still small voice, which whispereth through and pierceth all things, and often times it maketh my bones to quake while it maketh manifest, saying: 7 And it shall come to pass that I, the Lord God, will send one mighty and strong, holding the scepter of power in his hand, clothed with light for a covering, whose mouth shall utter words, eternal words; while his bowels shall be a fountain of truth, to set in order the house of God, and to arrange by lot the inheritances of the saints whose names are found, and the names of their fathers, and of their children, enrolled in the book of the law of God; 8 While that man, who was called of God and appointed, that putteth forth his hand to steady the ark of God, shall fall by the shaft of death, like as a tree that is smitten by the vivid shaft of lightning.”

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.
