Topics. Book of Mormon Translation; “Joseph Smith stands out among God’s prophets, because he was called to render into his own language an entire volume of scripture…”
Originally, this article was published in 2011. While looking through our websites, I noticed it had mysteriously become attached to another article, ‘Joseph Smith, Nephi and Moroni’. Yikes!
Long story short, we’re cleaning house, as they say! Today we’re republishing ‘Joseph and Lucifer Compared’ as its own little self in hopes it’ll clear up any confusion.
This article, ‘Joseph and Lucifer Compared’, was one of the first things I discovered after making the exodus from my beloved heritage. Personally, the discovery was a heart-breaker, and sent chills down my spine as I continued reading the evidence of what Smith had done. It became another proverbial nail in the coffin, as I began seeing Mormonism for what it really was, and is: demonically inspired evil.
Again, I want to make it abundantly clear, we don’t publish these things to be sensationalistic. Mormonism doesn’t need any showmanship added to its menagerie of doctrinal shockers. It does more than an ample job of that all on its own. Rather, we publish these things to inform both Mormons, and Christians alike. We pray it’ll open the eyes of those who don’t know, and help my people come to their senses the good Lord instilled them with. Here we go! (more…)
Nauvoo, Illinois laid in shambles as the Saints departed for the Rocky Mountains. Gone was the illustrious ideal of a Mormon utopia, and in its stead was a pile of burning embers from what used to be their beloved temple. That was until a tornado came through the valley, sweeping away any salvageable remnants or visible reminders of the town’s history.
November 20 – Hebrews 11:36-38; “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.”
Acts 17:11; “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
Today’s post is a result of a couple of interesting quotes stemming from a PowerPoint Presentation I found in a Google Web-cache. You can read it online, or watch a Video of Mr. Neal Maxwell’s presentation which contains most of what’s included in the PPT, The BYU Youtube version is called, ‘A Wonderful Flood of Light’, but fair warning: it’s 45 minutes long!
OR, if those two formats don’t strike your fancy, you can purchase the book from Amazon. We found the book is actually a compilation of Joseph Smith quotes Mr. Maxwell really liked, and the subsequent extolling of Smith, none of which had anything to do with God’s word.
