  History of the Church 2:492; “My instructions to the brethren were, when they arrived in England, to adhere closely to the first principles of the gospel, and remain silent concerning the gathering, the vision, and the book of doctrine and covenants, until such time as the work was fully established, and it should be clearly made manifest by the spirit to do otherwise.” – Joseph Smith, June 1837

History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5:134 – 135; “Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God. But we cannot keep all the commandments without first knowing them, and we cannot expect to know all, or more than we now know unless we comply with or keep those we have already received. That which is wrong under one circumstance, may be, and often is, right under another.” – Joseph Smith

Mormon Decisions 10Joseph Smith stated in his testimony he was on the receiving end of malicious rumors, and great persecution beginning in 1820 because of the vision had.

Let’s look at the evidence –

PoGP JS-Hist 1:22-23; “I soon found, however, that my telling the story had excited a great deal of prejudice against me among professors of religion, and was the cause of great persecution, which continued to increase…and this was common among all the sects—all united to persecute me. 23 It caused me serious reflection then, and often has since, how very strange it was that an obscure boy, of a little over fourteen years of age, and one, too, who was doomed to the necessity of obtaining a scanty maintenance by his daily labor, should be thought a character of sufficient importance to attract the attention of the great ones of the most popular sects of the day, and in a manner to create in them a spirit of the most bitter persecution and reviling…”

Foundation of the Book of Mormon Series

Book of Mormon Plagiarism

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times; I grew up loving my Book of Mormon. Being born and raised in an LDS family in Ogden, Utah came with the understanding you’d be learning all you could about Joseph Smith, Mormonism, and your Book of Mormon.

History of Joseph Smith

Evidences and Reconciliations, pg 334; “Because the earliest available written or printed account of this vision is dated 1838 and 1839, some enemies of the Church have cast doubt upon the authenticity of the date claimed for the vision. They have suggested that the vision was invented by the Prophet in 1838, when he set about to write the formal history of the Church. This not only implies that Joseph Smith lied, but also that the facts of history to be acceptable must be written and circulated at the time of their occurrence. This is a preposterous claim, made only by enemies of the Church to mislead those who are unacquainted with Mormon history. Whether the story of the first vision existed in written form in the early days of the Church is not known.”

Lies about Polygamy 

Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg 270; “”Do the Mormons believe in having more wives than one?” No, not at the same time. But they believe that if their companion dies, they have a right to marry again. But we do disapprove of the custom, which has gained in the world, and has been practiced among us, to our great mortification, in marrying in five or six weeks, or even in two or three months, after the death of their companion. We believe that due respect ought to be had to the memory of the dead, and the feelings of both friends and children.”
