Most people and denominations ridicule The Book of Mormon because of Joseph Smith. They say he's the devils servant, a fraud, that he perpetrated the biggest religious hoax of the millenia. Maybe those people, saying these terrible things about Joseph Smith are right!!! Or maybe not........ The Odds and true facts are Joseph Smith told the truth. Yet the theologians of Smith's day, were either ignorant or Antichrist in their doctrinal teachings of scriptural. Let me list for you why.........
The common Christian man or women In Joseph Smith's day and in our day, knew very little about how God Himself worked and communicated with ancient Israel. Most Bible stories tell tails like Moses parting the red sea, Moses and the burning bush, Frogs stampeding Egypt to death. Israelites plastering lambs blood on the lentils of their doors to ward off the Angel of Death. Yet no Book of Mormon stories.
We hear About Jesus Christ being born of a virgin, raising the dead, healing the sick. Helping the blind to see. We marvel at the priest who was stupid enough to touch the Ark of the Covenant, being struck dead for his pains. Or Samson playing the idiot, letting Delila cut his hair and loosing his strength. Story after story after story. But few are the stories we hear in our Bibles about the Book of Mormon. It's as if the Book of Mormon was not spoken of in the Bible. Yet it is!!! Why isn't it spoken of? I honestly Don't know.
Book of Samuel 28:5-6 Urim and Thummim
The Book of Mormon tells their story, tells how they built boats and crossed the Pacific Ocean in the Book of Ether, and Omni in the Book of Mormon.
Book of Mormon Proven True By DNA and Book of Mormon Expose CD
The Book of Mormon has been proven true by Protestant efforts to discredit it. The DNA and the Book of Mormon CD expose is correct. Many of the Lamanites did come from Asian DNA strains. It took the Jaredites over 40 years ( according to the Book of Mormon ) to travel through Asia. They married and intermarried as they traveled. Today's Protestant Churches in their ignorance of the Book of Mormon's content, assembled faulty information..... They are right about the Native American DNA strain being from Asia. They are wrong about Joseph Smith being a fraudulent Prophet and Liar. 180 years before DNA and the Book of Mormon CD Expose was created by man, God using Joseph Smith his servant translated recorded accounts in the Book of Mormon of three different peoples who traveled here from Asia.
So where is Smith a liar? Not to mention DNA Testing didn't even exist till the 1970's.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Christians today have little regard for Jesus Christ's true words. They steadfastly insist they have the whole truth and they need no more truth because they have the bible.
13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
It is clear the Bible says God is not finished doing His work nor giving us More truth and revelation. We've not seen all there is to see. Yet today, there is an idea taught that the Bible is all there is, their ain't no more to come. The assumption is allowed that the Bible speaks of no other prophetic scripture of Prophecy or Revelation. That is not true. A huge lie has been perpetrated either by design or mistake. There is much more to come....
Many people from the very beginning condemned Joseph Smith for his story. He claimed an angel came to him not once but many times. Telling Joseph Smith not only to prepare for the work the Lord was going to do with Him but to repent and sanctify himself before God. This angel also began to teach Joseph Smith doctrine, preaching to him the gospel according to Joseph's personal testimony. Later after several years of preparatory work, and angelic visitations, Joseph was shown the the location of the Book of Mormon gold plates burried in the earth.
Book of Mormon
BelieversMade An Offender For A Word or Belief
Isaiah 29 speaks of the Greening of Lebanon as a sign of the Book of Mormons arrival. More pointedly men who believe the Book of Mormon shall be made an offender for a word or belief. Bible passage continues on, saying the believers in this sealed book, shall persecuted, despised and shunned. The idea that God would do His own work to retrieve His own people from bondage, makes men who truly believe this biblical passages as God's truth, bad men in the eyes of the world.
There has been much hyper-boil told about the Book of Mormon. Much Character assassination against Joseph Smith by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints which is unwarranted. They flat lied about Joseph Smith. Smith didn't do what the Mormon church claimed he did. The LDS church claimed Smith was a Polygamist, not mentioning court cases Joseph Smith himself executed against men in the Joseph Smith era LDS Church who said he taught the doctrine of polygamy. Joseph Smith won his court cases, shaming those men legally and publicly. Men whom Smith proved they fraudulently claimed he taught polygamy in a court of law.
8 years after Brigham Young conspired with other men to murder Joseph Smith in 1844, Young pulled a Revelation from his desk claiming in 1843 Joseph Smith had given this revelation from God the Saint's should practise polygamy. This revelation was the revelation that Polygamy was of God. Biblically we know polygamy is not of God. But what about the Book of Mormon? What does the Book of Mormon say? The Bible says we can judge a man by the fruit he bares. So what fruit did the work of Joseph Smith bare?
Proclaiming that a women's heart is of ultimate importance to God and she should only have one husband and he one wife as He God created it to be, beginning with Adam and Eve...... So why did Smith get the blame for Polygamy?
Men who were around Smith, but apposed to him, set him up for a scape goat. Brigham Young and others, performed a hostile take over of the Original LDS church Smith started. They effectively locked Joseph Smith out of church leadership.
