Journal of Discourses 2:44 “Who revealed to him [Joseph Smith] the plan of redemption, and of exaltation for the dead who had died without the Gospel? and the keys and preparations necessary for holy and perpetual converse with Jesus Christ, and with the spirits of just men made perfect, and with the general assembly and Church of the first-born, in the holy of holies? Those from the dead!” – Parley Parker Pratt, Great Salt Lake City, April 6, 1853

Witnessing Tip of the Day May 101May 19 – Instruments in the Hands of God. Jeremiah 27:6; “And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.”

In their routine fashion of diverting attention via means of confusion, the Church tweaked what it plagiarized from the prophet Isaiah.

The Church’s message on the importance of baptism has been stretched to its limit. They’ve made their canon so confusing, it’s difficult to determine which is worse – lying about the Israelites practice of baptism in the BC era (which they didn’t do), or retro-engineering what Joe Smith plagiarized from Isaiah’s prophecy.

Let’s sort this out to you can lovingly share this with the Mormon you know, and give demonstrative evidence of why their canon was written to confuse them.

Here’s what the original Book of Mormon said –

1830 Book of Mormon, p. 52; “Hearken and hear this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the Lord . . .” [emp. mine]

2014 city_of_david_eastGod’s promise fulfilled. Malachi 4:6; “And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Luke 1:16-17; “And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

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. Amen.”
