Just a simple reminder of how Joe Smith’s church began in 1830. This was originally posted July 2015.

History of the Church 6:73, 78; “Letter to James Arlington Bennett, Nauvoo, Illinois, November 13, 1843…I combat the errors of ages; I meet the violence of mobs; I cope with illegal proceedings from executive authority; I cut the Gordian knot of powers, and I solve mathematical problems of universities, with truth— diamond truth; and God is my “right hand man.”” (more…)

Witnessing Tip of the Day May 101May 21 – Joe Smith’s Plagiarism of Paul. Galatians 1:6-8; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 318; “Have we not learned the Priesthood after the order of Melchizedek, which includes both Prophets, Priests and Kings: see Rev. 1 Chap., 6th v., and I will advance your Prophet to a Priest, and then to a King—not to the Kingdoms of this earth, but of the Most High God.

Leviticus 19:31; “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.”

While looking for a reference on something that has nothing to do with our topic today, I came across Bruce R. McConkie’s definition for ‘crystal balls’. As it turned out, I had also just read a portion of the Church’s Comprehensive History explaining how Smith had used peep stones he put in his hat to translate the Book of Mormon.

Long story short, check out the info I retrieved on our topic today. I have to say that I’ve always found it fascinating the Church never has a problem with providing how they went about tricking people. In many ways, it’s downright scary, and should give members pause as they read their own history.

In 1826 Joseph Smith was arrested for ‘glass-looking’, a form of fortune-telling, and at the time was illegal. For more info, see Joseph Smith’s Witchcraft, Scrying and Arrest 1820 – 1827.
