Posts Tagged ‘false prophet Joseph Smith’

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

2 Corinthians 9:7; “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

It’s interesting how Joseph Smith dogged on the Catholic Church for their stance on tithing when he, and other LDS leaders have done the very same thing. Their comments beg the question:

Why?

Why did Smith say such things about Catholics and Protestants, while mandating the same principles on his own followers? We’re taking a look at what they’ve said over the years to paint a clear picture of when calling Christians and Catholics ‘the whore of Babylon’ actually began.

June 1 – Mormon salvation means taking God’s place. Is. 43:10-11; “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me and understand that I am he; before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”
