Nauvoo Roots of Mormon Polygamy: A Preliminary Demographic Report, pp. 128, 131; “The secret became a scandal in May 1844…During the two-and-one-half years from his first official plural marriage in April 1841 to his last known marriage in November 1843, Smith took as many as forty-two wives, one or two at a time. On average, this pace produced 1.5 new wives each month. By the end of 1843, Emma Smith’s biographers observed, most close friends of Smith’s legal wife had either married her husband or had given their daughters to him. Reportedly, some of the younger women were discreetly instructed in polygamy by older women who had been inducted previously into the secret order.” – George D. Smith

Today we’re looking at a false prophecy in the Book of Mormon. Even though the Church has told us the BoM isn’t necessarily an historical fact, they keep claiming Joseph Smith is prophesied about in its narrative.

The BoM also tells us Smith’s  lineage is found in a line of Jews not mentioned in the Bible. Although the Church doesn’t believe the Bible has been translated correctly, the part about Joseph of Egypt is apparently okay.

Now, if this isn’t confusing enough, wait, there’s more. Here’s how the this thing plays itself out.

A Young Folk’s History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, pp.11, 13;

The enemy is the evil one, the devil …who mixed his lies with Christ’s truths, until in time the pure gospel was not to be found on the earth.

This was the condition of the world for hundreds of years. Then the Lord wished to restore the true gospel and … moved upon Columbus to discover this land of America… and good men whom you have read about in your American history: Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and many others. … and the Lord himself came from heaven, also his servants Moroni, Peter, James, and John to bring the glad tidings to all who live on the earth.

Then the Lord called some more servants …The first and greatest of these servants is known by the name of Joseph Smith, the Prophet.

Though Joseph did not get much of an education at school, yet he was a great student ; and then God became his teacher, so that before he died, as you will see, he became one of the most learned men in the world.”

TodayinMormonHistory.com; “July 27, 1842 – Joseph Smith receives a revelation giving the words of a polygamous marriage ceremony. The words were used by Newel K. Whitney to seal his 17-year-old daughter Sarah Ann to Joseph Smith the same day. Newell is promised that the marriage will bring eternal life to his household, including his posterity. Sarah is given to Joseph, but Joseph is not given to Sarah. The same practice occurs in sealing ceremonies in the temple today. The ceremony invokes ancient priesthood lines, which will ‘concentrate’ through their posterity. The mention of posterity indicates the marriage was to produce children. The ceremony concludes sealing eternal life on Joseph and Sarah.” – Wilford Woodruff’s Journal: 1833-1898 Typescript, Volumes 1-9, Edited by Scott G. Kenney, Signature Books 1993, http://amzn.to/newmormonstudies
