1 Thessalonians 5:21 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”

I’ve always been fascinated at how the word of the Lord provides just the right verse, or passage needed for any given situation. Today’s example is case in point! It’s important, beloved, to show the dear Mormon why their canon is flawed. Equally important is the method of how we’re to share this important info.

There’s a passage in the BoM you can lovingly share with a Mormon showing why their canon wasn’t inspired of God. There’s simply no way events in Helaman took place and were repeated in the 19th century in Joe Smith’s backyard.

Matthew 24:23-24; “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 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.”

In the ‘70’s members of the LDS Church were fed a steady diet of faith promoting idioms that were to be kept at the forefront of their memory banks. One of those promoted at that time was ‘lengthen your stride’, which meant ‘go on a mission’, and the other still alive and well in my personal memory bank: only Mormons were the ‘elect’ of God.

The idea was facilitated to boost a Mormon’s feelings of camaraderie amongst other Mormons, or so I was told. The downside? It served to instill a superiority complex. For many who leave the Church, the sudden reality of who they thought they were, and the Church’s history, is rather stark.

One of the startling realities is discovering all the unanswered prophecies proclaimed by none other than Joe Smith.

When Joe Smith and Oliver Cowdery finished translating their script in June 1829, the long list of messes they made would keep people busy for centuries to come. Case in point, us, and our subject matter today.

Did you know that Smith never did have a translation for the following five words in the BoM?

Articles of Faith, pp. 287-288; “. . .If we compare the historical, prophetical, and doctrinal parts of the Book of Mormon with the great truths of science and nature, we find no contradictions–no absurdities–nothing unreasonable.” – James Talmage

 Mosiah 5:15; “Therefore, I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in good works, that Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent, may seal you his, that you may be brought to heaven, that ye may have everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power, and justice, and mercy of him who created all things, in heaven and in earth, who is God above all.

 D&C 20:77, 79; “O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it, that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him and keep his commandments which he has given them; that they may always have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.

79 O  God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this wine to the souls of all those who drink of it, that they may do it in remembrance of the blood of thy Son, which was shed for them; that they may witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.” [all emp. mine]

Several days ago I came across an archived Salt Lake Trib article outlining significant racism-in-the-mormon-church-226changes in two chapter headings for the BoM. Included in Peggy Stack’s report were comments provided by a few noteworthy people; all of which are LDS.

To read article in full, see Church removes racial references in Book of Mormon headings. Their changes are in the chart below.

Now, contrary to the comments in the Trib article, the only reason for the changes is abundantly clear. They’re trying to cover up blatantly racist doctrines still plaguing the Church today. Although they tried to shift blame onto Bruce McConkie for the unacceptable chapter headings, they’re left without excuse. He’s an easy out simply because he’s deceased.
