DNA and the Book of Mormon CD Hoax



DNA and The Book of Mormon
CD Hoax
The CD expose, DNA and the Book of Mormon, purportedly to prove Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon fraudulent, is in itself a fraud. It is poorly researched, and an insult to the intelligence of mankind! Why am I so critical? I'm not actually meaning to criticize. In truth, DNA and the Book of Mormon CD is a great work! If you like lies! Yes I said lies!

Whoa there! I'm not about to beat up anybody! I'm just calling a spade a spade. While there is truth in the CD documentary, and there are true facts contained within, they are only fractions of facts, only fractions of the real story. I'm here to tell you keep reading, to keep searching! Jesus Christ himself said to " search and all things, prove all things true.

But living in the talking head society as we do, many many millions of men an women, ( especially Christians ) let others do their own searching, their own thinking, healing, and child raising. This is not right. How can I say such a thing? Simply this!

We have a faulty logic system. We have been brainwashed to believe someone with a college education, a B.S. degree ( no pun intended ) Masters or Doctorate in Medicine, Communications, Research and Development, Science, Archaeology, or Entertainment know's what they're talking about! That is not always the case. Worse we've been taught, our government always has our best interest at heart. That actors and news services air only things good for us to see. That science tells us the truth and archaeologist want us to know truth about the ancient world peoples. Let me further illuminate what I'm saying!

For instance, is the weather man always right? When did a doctor give someone good news? News like ( honey you don't need to do Chemotherapy, use wheat grass ( a common anti cancer food ) instead? When did the News Guy give you a good story to hear? Or the Actor a dream you could pursue? When did scientist and researcher give you information you could easily understand and utilize in your daily life. When do the authorities break down information into easily understood words so you and I can make wise decisions, without having to be pronounced by the world a master of, or a doctor of... When will the common man be as important as the most Important V.I.P. in the Americas?

The answer? When the common man is willing to become more expert than the experts.
And this is not that hard really! I myself, in my own studies, could most likely be considered a world authority on the Book of Mormon. I mean after all, I've studied the book for 36 years, researched North and South American Archaeology for about 5 years, have an absolute lifelong passion for Church and World History since the day I was born. It's not hard to become an authority, if one is willing to read and keep learning, keep asking questions, keep growing.


What Has This to Do with the Book of Mormon CD Expose?

Everything! Let me explain. The Bible warns of men in the last times, who preach the gospel for money! You can find this in Book of Revelations, Book of Jude, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and throughout the New Testament.
All the Old Testament gospels and yes even in the Book of Mormon. Which as declared by the Book of Mormon, is one of many reasons the Book of Mormon is to come forth. Because evil men will have gotten influence in the churches, and have led the people into bondage and sin. Using them to get gain, rather than teaching the people to be self supporting in God alone.

Like I said, men who preach the gospel for money, pretending to be sheep, but inwardly are raving wolves. Raving means hungry, not at peace, angry, messed up, even evil. It is wise to be careful when reading the Bible. What is taught about the Bible, and what the Bible actually teaches are two different things.

Putting Things In Context


If a minister is paid by his church, there is a great risk he will preach for money. Only popular ministers bring in huge offering plates, rally support for church affairs, convince congregations to buy new pews and repeatedly build larger tabernacles, worship centers and church recreation buildings. Only popular pastors, make more friends than enemies, especially among the wealthy.

Yet in Christ's time, it was the wealthy man and popular minister who crucified Christ in the name of truth. History always repeats itself.
The popular ministers and pastors of Christ's time, killed their God. Not because they were right, but because Jesus Christ was showing the common people, how not to be dependant upon the wealthy man, the popular pastor, or the charismatic minister. Jesus Christ taught the common man he could to be self sufficient in God alone. Christ taught all mountains could be moved if man had but the faith of a grain of mustard seed. All obstacles could be overcome, if one only had a particle of faith.

But today, that is not so! And if you listen and look carefully, you will see I'm right!


Today it's about money, not people. Yes people are appealed to, because people have money. Every church service, and most every sermon are about the money. They are created, coordinated and conducted to appeal to common man and rich alike. They teach men who have financially hard times, recipes for " Christian Financial Success ". One of the principles taught is giving. The Ministry today teach giving to the Church is like giving to God! And that God will give back 7 fold or seventy fold depending upon who's recipe you listen too.

Many of todays Christian Radio Programs have to do with stewardship of money. Dare I say even if tongue in cheek, it behooves churches to keep their flock flush with cash. After all, their membership is their cash cow!

So when we talk about DNA and the Book of Mormon CD, we're not talking Biblical doctrine, truth, love of country, love of Jesus, God or the Holy Spirit! We're talking market share, money, power! This is the punch line!

The Bible say, the last days, God's own people will be called after the name of His only begotten Son. Biblically The Book of Mormon can be supported without question. History has proven the Book of Mormon true. Archaeology has proven the Book of Mormon is likely true. And the Book of Mormon when studies by experts in the field of ancient writings and texts has been proven to be an ancient Hebrew document.

So why the big hullabaloo? Because it's about the green stuff!

DNA Arguments Against Book of Mormon

Many of the DNA arguments used to prove Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon from his own intellect, and not by Inspiration of the Holy Spirit, are themselves addressed by the Book of Mormon and the writings and contents therein.

People, Christians especially, need to realize they are only getting a biassed one sided story about the Book of Mormon. There are countless Archaeological artifacts, Biblical evidences, Petroglyphs, Pictoglyphs, tablets, metal plates, and ancient records and evidences excavated from Burial mounds and found on rocks and cliff faces in North and South America. Artifacts and evidences discovered not by Brigham Young University and the Salt Lake Utah Mormon Church. No! We're talking University of Tulsa, Oklahoma State University, University of Calgary CA. University of Mexico, University of Pennsylvania, Brandice University, Universities in Europe, Asia and across the world?

Other interesting facts

Interestingly enough, the CD Expose never mentions any of these University archaeological researched discoveries and evidences...

Nor does the CD explain that the Salt Lake Mormon Church is an impostor Church, and not the original church Joseph Smith started...

When I first saw the CD, DNA and the Book of Mormon, which is supposed be an expose proving the Book of Mormon false,it was a laugh.... A good baptist friend invited me to his house to watch it, and I later answered questions. I went upon his promise it would be a question answer session/ discussion. Deep deep down, I doubted if it would be that way but I went hoping all would turn out as promised.Tell you the truth I was a little scared! You see I don't like confrontations with people over the Book of Mormon. I usually find most people swim in shallow water Christianity. Yet I get dubbed by them, the satanic blasphemer regardless of Biblical, Archaeological, Palientological and Historical evidence supporting the Book of Mormon. It's a price I pay believing as I do, but a price I hate to pay sometimes..

Belief Racism


My ideals and beliefs most often result in rejection from other Christians. Like the Black man or South American, who's rejected for his color or nationality, I am rejected for my Christian biblically supported Book of Mormon beliefs. This kind of belief based racism I find Appalling! An appalled Brian Marshall results in loss of reason and speech abilities... if I contend with others about Christ's true doctrine and teachings. If that happens I get even more mad. So after a fashion, I can understand the Mexican or African Americans plight! Sometimes I tend to want to carry a chip on my shoulder because of the unfair treatment.


The American Christian attitude is to deny truth, even if it hurts us....

So you can see why I don't like "religious doctrinal" confrontations. Religious doctrinal confrontations usually make me mad. Not because my argument is weaker, or my belief lesser, but because I like most people, despise bigots! People who don't listen, and have made their minds up without viewing the evidences, evidences often contain within their own NIV or King James Bibles. Evidences most ministers would deny or ignore and explain away, but in most cases just plain avoid. It's dangerous ground! I understand why people avoid dangerous ground. Sometimes it hurts, it's embarrassing, you could get mud on your face.

Literal Belief in Biblical Scripture

I believe the Bible is literally the word of God in as much as it's been translated correctly from the Original Hebrew texts. So I read the Bible as is. Not adding my interpretations or meanings. Nor do I take away from Biblical Text by adding my interpretations or meanings. I read the bible in context with the author who is writing the current biblical book I'm reading that day.

DNA CD Farce


Like I said I saw the CD and about laughed. The CD only proved Joseph Smith could only have been inspired of God to wright/translate it. Let me list a few glaring points of note proving Smith was a true prophet, or at least, a man who could see what future critics would say about the Book of Mormon.

Criticism: Joseph Smith was a fraud because the DNA of most people in the America's today descended from Asian DNA strains, not Hebrew.

Response: Joseph Smith 180 years ago translated the books of Either and Omni which speaks about Jarred and the Brother of Jarred "Jeredites" who came to ancient America after the fall of the Great Tower of Babel. These people traveled through Asia, coming to the Asian Pacific coastline, built ships and traveled to Central America's western shores.Not only did the Jeredites come from Asia, but two other peoples as well.

Criticism: Joseph Smith could not be a Christian because he was a polygamist. That he had many wives. Therefore his doctrine was of the devil.

Response: Book of Jacob in the Book of Mormon condemns polygamy, telling us what polygamy is and why it's wrong in God's eyes! The Book of Mormon condemns polygamy so roundly and convincingly, it makes one wonder if Joseph Smith actually could have been a polygamist should he have written the Book of Mormon from his own intellect rather than God given inspiration...

Not to mention Abraham, King David, Isaac, Ishmael, King Solomon, Jacob (Israel)and many other men in the bible were polygamist and are today considered holy Godly men by all who read Bible scripture. So! Why the double standard ? The bible had polygamists and yet it's accepted as truth? Yet the Book of Mormon is not accepted because it condemns polygamy? I've never seen such warped logic!

Criticism: Joseph Smith translated the Book of Abraham.

Response: The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints In the late 19th century U.S. and Canadian Courts as well as U.S. Congressional investigation determined the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ the true successor Church to the original LDS Church Led by Joseph Smith...
Further more the Courts and Congress all courts and U.S. Congressional Investigation declared it was Brigham Young who started the Doctrine of Polygamy. Continuing in their statements, the courts declared the Salt Lake Church an usurper Church, who in Joseph Smith's name promoted doctrines, beliefs and teachings that were untrue. Smith never taught them!
They also determined Joseph Smith never was a polygamist!
So what does this have to do with the Book of Abraham? Just as we covered earlier about churches struggling for market share and money, so does the Salt Lake LDS Church. They are no better than any other church. This Includes RLDS of which I myself am a member.

The RLDS at our core is a better church, our beliefs are biblically based, and we reject Brigham Young's invitation to follow him to Salt Lake. But we ourselves have rejected the saviors call to take the gospel to the common man, to the lowliest of the low, the most humble of the humble. Instead even we ourself have used the Book of Mormon to build a church organization, rather than a people. So even for us it's about money, power or prestige. At least we don't lie like Salt Lake Mormon hierarchy. But does that make us any better? Nope!


As a life long member and Priest in the RLDS Church, I can say the Book of Abraham never existed as a book of doctrine in our church... I've never heard mention of it! Not until I saw the supposed DNA Evidence And The Book of Mormon CD... For me it was a shocker! " The Mormon's did what?"

Does that mean Joseph Smith never handled some ancient scripts which resulted in the Book of Abraham? Yes he did! He did translate, to be published only in a church magazine publication. Never to be used as church doctrine.

If you're curious where my sources lie, look within you. In the near future I will post some links to other sources of information to validate what I've said.

Negev Hebrew In America

Viewzone Returns To Ancient America
A Preview of the Expedition's Discovery







The enhanced digital image above was taken following its discovery by producer, Lee Frank, while filming the zone's expedition, deep in the remote canyons of southeast Colorado. It is a simple but remarkably well preserved script that illustrates the use of the traditional old Negev alphabet but reverting to the archaic form to reference the name of God, or EL.

Lee chose to name the important discovery after Rollin Gillespie, a remarkable scientist whose insight and intellect first stimulated our interest in American petroglyphs. It is now known as The Gillespie Stone. [N 37 38'13.53" / W 103 35'13.76"]

TRANSLATION:

The upper left ligature has three letters. The yod and resh are immediately recognized, as well as a rare inclusion of the vowel aleph. This ligature reads yaRE, "fear, respect, to hold in awe..."

See the old Negev alphabet and modern Hebrew equivalent. Also, remember that vowels are not usually written in old Negev.

The top central ligature appears somewhat distorted because of the underlying rock topography. It reads as a het, "the, the one..."

On the top right is the word for God, "El." It is written using the archaic form of the vowel aleph, which was also depicted as an animal head with two horns. The lamed remained largely unchanged from the archaic form to that of old Negev script. The entire top of this panel can thus be read, from left to right, as our modern equivalent to "praise to the one God," or quite simply, "Praise God."

The central ligature that resembles a wishbone is actually a clever combination of letters written to graphically, as well as phonetically, convey its meaning. The main figure appears to be holding something in its right hand that ends in a circular shape. The object being held is actually a ligature read from the bottom up as A-S-S. Because the last two letters repeat, we will expect this to be a word-break (see Harris et. al.) and will read the ligature as "ESH" or "fire." The main figure is a ligature for lamed and he (rotated to indicate end of word or phrase). LH is " 'oLAH" or "burnt offering."

The figure further down also appears to be holding something in its hand. On close inspection it is the letters RSS. Deleting the final S we read ROSH as "chief, leader, head..." The significance of the figure is, as yet, untranslated.

The bottom of this panel contains the familiar horned ram symbol of "El" and is flanked by the letters (from left to right) LN, or to (lamed used as a preposition "to" or "for") pray...

On the top of this photograph you can see a horizontal line which is actually the bottom of a flat step in the rock, which had a flat back to it which resembled a bench. There was no carving on this bench and so we did not focus attention on it. That was unfortunate. We later found the following inscription on the side of the same huge rock, directing the way to the "kisSEM", seat or chair...





With hundreds of digital images and video to examine, translations are being made daily. We hope to display more of this work as it becomes available.

We now have solid proof that a culture from the Sinai lived and grew in the middle of America thousands of years ago. There is evidence that other cultures also migrated to America from Asia, and that global navigation was no obstacle to antiquity.

As always, viewzone welcomes your comments and questions.

Viewzone First Tongue

Background Information


After the Expedition of '98, when we first saw these strange petroglyphs, ViewZone was anxious to return to Colorado to translate the petroglyphs using the recently discovered old Negev alphabet in combination with an old Hebrew lexicon. Our dreams became a reality in May of 2000 and the team assembled in La Junta, Colorado, equipped with all of the hi-tech tools that we could gather.

La Junta, Colorado is a small town in the middle of the most remote part of the lower 48 states. Surrounded by miles of prairie, it's raison d'etre (a US Calvary outpost that guarded the sana Fe trail) was renewed by American's insatiable appetite for meat. La Junta is smack dab in the middle of "meat country." The railroad terminal and livestock auctions in La Junta are giant death camps for a variety of stock. Two of our team were vegetarians, which made for some awkward dining in local restaurants and even more awkward encounters with the cattle (one member, in particular, wanted to pet them).

The country around La Junta is dry and sandy with many deep and rocky canyons. Most of the vast land is either privately owned or sublet from the government by huge cattle ranchers. If you accidentally cross one of their barbed-wire fences, you may consider yourself lucky to escape being shot. Cattle rustling and arrowhead hunters have caused most locals to be wary of strangers and guarded in revealing geographic information. Oddly, they seem completely unaware and uninterested in the archaeological significance of the petroglyphs. Many privately owned ancient sites are currently being trampled by herds of Herefords.

Ted Barker, a local rancher who has devoted years to petroglyph research, negotiated for the ViewZone Expedition to gain access to many of the important, privately held sites containing examples of old Negev. The biggest surprise, however, was that many of the most intact and useful sites were located on the extremes of the National Grasslands area, a public park.

With the evidence our crew discovered, there should be no doubt that a migratory group from the Sinai occupied America many hundreds of years BC. In fact, much of the old Negev script that we documented was itself written over much older, more crudely drawn, Negev script. We saw countless evidence of at least two eras of Negev-like symbols, as well as the Plains Indian scrapings and the latter so-called "cowboy art" from the traffic of the near by old Santa Fe Trail.

While we await the scrutiny of the scholars to acknowledge our work, and to do their own research, we will continue translating and posting our material. We invite anyone with an interest to share in this exciting exploration of ancient history by using the translation program and viewing future images as they are reviewed by our team.

Ancient Hebrew Language Found In America

Dear Reader,

For even more information click above title link. The Title link will confirm thise same International Hebrew based language was found 12 miles south of Jerusalem...
Happy Reading!

DISCOVERY OF WRITINGThe language has been given the name "old Negev," after the location of the alphabet's initial discovery in the Sinai. In Australia it has been known for centuries by the name "Panaramitee," while in the Americas it has been misrepresented as Native American Indian sign language. The language and grammar are now understood to be proto-Canaanite and appear to have roots in common with Egyptian and Hebrew. The petroglyphs successfully translate to English using an old Hebrew dialect in all three locations.

There is a danger in representing the language as "old Negev" and "old Hebrew." Evidence of the antiquity of this script in both America and Australia suggest that this root language may pre-date that of the Hebrews. The team who made the discovery suggest using an unbiased name, such as "the First Tongue," to avoid any presumptive association with a specific people or era. The content of the translations, although not complete, suggests a common culture and religious belief system.But more scrutiny of this language system, its content and occurrence around the globe is indicated. Photographic evidence is presented and on-going translations are posted from the Expedition in May 2000 at veiwzone.com A discussion of the evidence is welcomed.

The Alphabet contains basic, distinct geometric shapes, 22 in all (with some variations). Each shape or symbol has a corresponding phonetic (sound) meaning. Earlier attempts at translation failed because the alphabet was thought to have been proto-Arabic. However, translations have successfully been made through an old Hebrew dialect. The symbols were originally found pecked in stone. The stone surface is typically flat and has a dark patina of oxidized minerals which is breached with a sharp object, removing small chunks of the patina. At the time of their creation, this method would have revealed the contrasted, bright underlying layer of fresh stone.

This made petroglyphs an excellent and permanent medium for writing. The pecked out symbols are often found in collections or arrangements that can be mistaken for pictures or maps. These "ligatures" can be broken down into discrete letters and phrases. Curiously, many of the ligatures are made such that the word meaning is conveyed both phonetically (for those that can read) and symbolically. A typical word or phrase will have two or three symbols in length. The vowels, with rare exception, are never written.

In the 18th Century BC, Canaanite miners were hired by the Egyptians to work in their Copper and Turquoise mines in an area called Serabit el-Khadim (see map below) of the Sinai Desert (now called the Egyptian East Desert). Hieroglyphic signs were used to write their West Semitic names and keep correct accounts of their days of labor. This was a great motivation for them to learn the sound signs that phonetically articulated their names. Very soon they had an Alef-Bet with which they could record their Proto-Canaanite language. The script they developed is called Proto-Sinaitric (First-Sinaitic) and the language was a Pan-Canaanite language often called Old Hebrew Three centuries later (15th Century BC) there was a cave-in at Mine-L, within the above mentioned area, and artifacts, tool, and a few inscriptions were frozen in time.
This event provided knowledge of how much the Alef-Bet had matured in three centuries. In the same century an area variation appeared in the Land of Canaan. This variation retained the archaic forms of Proto-Sinaitic and introduced a few abstract forms (used side by side with archaic forms). This area variation was called Proto-Canaanite. Both of these archaic scripts were the parents of Old Negev (1200 BC) an area variation found South of the Land of Canaan (an area that today extends from Beersheva to Eilat). Another script that emerged about the same time as Old Negev was Phoenician.
Unlike Phoenician, Old Negev retained many of the archaic signs which they used side by side with abstract signs [the abstract signs were simply reformed Egyptian signs].

( Blog Note: The Book of Mormon within it's texts claims to have been written in Reformed Egyption)

A study of the two parent Alef-Bets was an important step toward assigning the appropriate phonetic values to the Old Negev signs. Also since Old Hebrew was used as the best language to translate the two parent scripts it was logically the best language with which to translate Old Negev inscriptions.

The geographical location of the emergence of Old Negev also favored a strong link to the parent scripts. In addition symbols, icons, and ligatures that doubled as icons and enhanced the meaning of the whole composition were consistently observed and they frequently included icons and phonetic signs that spell the most sacred name of the God of Israel [Yah, Yahh, & Yahu, which out of respect was never spelled out fully].

The real discovery was that this same ancient alphabet system was found on rocks darkened by patina (desert varnish), on paintings in caves and overhangs, with the same icon, ligatures, symbols, and the name of the same God spelled the same three ways in six Southwestern States. Prof. Harris has a corpus of I20 inscriptions from the Negev of Israel, and about 400+ from the American Southwest. It is indisputable evidence that a Canaanite people speaking and writing a Canaanite language and worshipping the God Yahweh found their way to ancient America. Dr. Harris is continuing his examination of the Israel site and has gained the interest of various international scholars in his Middle-East find.

IN AUSTRALIA THIS WRITING IS KNOWN AS PANARAMITEE TRADITIONIn Australia, this alphabet has been found on many locations and adheres to the grammar and structure of the other known petroglyphs on the other two continents. Ironically, instead of considering the similarity to other archaeological sites around the globe as evidence of a global culture, the scientific community in Australia has denied the possibility that this is any type of "system" at all, either writing or storyboard.

The concept that these odd shapes somehow formed a system of communication was first put forth by Lesley Maynard. Maynard received overwhelming resistance to his assertion and he finally discontinued his efforts. By the late 1980s, there was virtually no interest in these petroglyphs.

Blog Note: Joseph Smith also recieved tremedous resitance to Book of Mormon and proclaiming it's truth.

In 1995, Bednarik reported the results of his experiment to see how readily the Panaramitee Tradition could be recognized. He sent drawings and pictures of several examples of petroglyphs to various rock art scholars around the globe. Ninety-eight (98%) percent wrongly identified petroglyphs from the United States, Africa and Europe as being Panaramitee Tradition.

Bednarik summarized as follows, "It is either not possible to identify the Panaramitee style, or... this is a world-wide style." It has been noted that this style is also accompanied by petroglyphs and pictographs of strange humanoid beings with large eyes. There are also reportedly collections of carved handprints, similar to those recorded in the canyons of Monument Valley and in Southeast Colorado. Dr. Harris has not reported these types of phenomenon in the Sinai. Josephine Flood rockart of the dreamtime .

Book of Mormon Archaeological Evidences The Ohio Decalogue Stone

Newark Earth Works where Ohio Decalogue Stone Was Discovered

What does the Book of Mormon and Ohio have in common? The Ten Commandments andHebrews in America! While many churches claim other wise, they are not totally honest in how they represent Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon.





Ohio Decalogue Stone or Ten Commandment Stone.



Fraudulent artifacts? Or factual Findings? Who knows? People are funny! Some times truth hurts. I myself have in earlier life forestalled the telling of the truth to elude pain and hardship. So I can only suppose men running the Churches and Seminaries across this great land, the United States of America have a good reason forestalling the telling of the truth of Jesus Christ in the Americas. Any man who contradicts the biblical words of Jesus Christ had better have a good reason. Approximately 1/3 of our Bible deals with prophecy. Prophecy makes mention of Joseph Smith's translation of the sealed plates we now call the Book of Mormon. Interestingly, no legally recognized church other than LDS RLDS or Church of Christ Temple Lot recognize Joseph Smiths work as valid. Instead they're proclaimed lies, falsifications, fraud and biblical blasphemy. I hope there is a good reason why the truth is called a lie. And yet Biblical prophecy says one day good will be called evil, and evil will be called good.





What are these objects? Why are they written in Monumental Hebrew? A language once used in Palestine, on grave stones. Why are these words being found on objects in America, buried under Native American stone stacks? Is Joseph Smith a fraud or not? Did he tell the truth about Hebrew people living in the America's before the time of Christ or not?


Who made these Objects? What motivated them? Was this made my a white man? Could a British descendant white man write Hebrew? Perhaps so ! Why would they write Hebrew only to become the scorn of many people who live in America? Why carefully build a wood box, carve and inscribe a stone with the ten commandments in Monumental Hebrew a 2,000 year old language? Then carve a representation of Moses, then bury your work under hundreds of tons of stone stone stack! Then rip up the stone stack to build a dam and discover something you yourself created that would make you scorned the rest of your life by the world? Seem like an awful lot of work for lazy white men.

Then again most white men were against Joseph Smith and the early restoration church. Who would want to discover an artifact that would automatically get you dubbed a Mormon liar? Most people forget that in those days, to be called a liar was a socially crippling offense and often a killing matter. Something we today can scarcely imagine in our soft, pampered spoiled society, where people call each other liars without merit and think nothing of it.


Wooden Decalogue Stone Case




The Importance of Doorways

A Keystone with Hebrew writing.
I as a building contractor know the importance of a keystone. Without the keystone the doors archway will not stand. It is the most important part of the doorways supporting structure. As a Christian I remember God commanding the Israelites to mark their posts of their doorways with blood. Doorways are entry ways, and entry ways are very important to Hebrew and native American cultures. To me as a builder It would make Biblical sense to build a Keystone with written Hebrew upon it. It marks the door way. Even Jesus Christ.



Book of John 10: 1-2 and verse 7 in our KJV Bible, Jesus says door ways are very important. So I could see a Keystone inserted physically and symbolically to support the archway of the door. And it being inscribed in Hebrew.

1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

7Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

The Importance of Unknown Boxes


What is this box? Note the curious workmanship of it. Why is it covered in Hebrew inscription? Note the rounded handle on the left side end. Could this have been used in a temple? Or was it use in a funeral possession? It was after all found in a grave?





Again below: the workmanship of this box is very detailed. Note top of Box has three inscribed letter lines. The writing is placed right between the lines? Why would a white man of British/French/Spanish or Irish decent man put three lines of lettering on top the box. Could this division of lettering some how be embracing symbolically the trinity of God. God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit? The Hebrew cultures and some parts of the American Indian cultures are somewhat similar. Numbers are important.

If you're a nation that believes in Jesus Christ, like the Jews do. Yes the Hebrews do believe in Christ, they just don't believe he came yet.

Like I was saying if you believe Christ has come or will be coming the number three is very important. Note in scripture, both Bible and the Book of Mormon handle lessons by repeating the lesson subject over three times. Any passage in scripture that repeats three times is call a Hebraic Chiasm. A Chiasm has thee points in it, a beginning, and middle point ( or point of the whole lesson) and the ending point. Again note the Box has three lines of lettering. Coincidence? Could be!





What I want to know is if this box does translates correctly, why is there so much resistance to Jesus Christ having come to the Americas? Is it because Salt Lake Utah LDS have giving the idea such a bad taste by their own historic and continued bitter fruit and false doctrinal actions?


Isaiah 16:88 KJV Bible

For the fields of Heshbon languish, and the vine of Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down the principal plants thereof, they are come even unto Nazer, they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are stretched out, they are gone over the sea.

Translation

Qedosh Qedoshim "Holy of Holies"
Melek Eretz "King of the Earth"
Torath YHWH "The Law of God"
Devor YHWH "The Word of God

KJV Bible
Isaiah 37: 31-32
31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
32For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
Jesus said at " great are the words of Isaiah teach them" Sorry but I did paraphrase. I don't know about you but if Jesus said it, then I believe it.

KJV Bible
Jesus said, John 10: 16
"And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."





Please note the Gentiles were not the other sheep. They were converted by the apostles preaching, not Jesus Christ direct contacts and teaching. Jesus came only to the lost tribes of Israel.

Hebrews In America B.C.

What Evidence For Hebrews In America?
In 1830 the Book of Mormon, which claimed Hebrews came to America, was translated by the power of God, and brought forth to the world by Joseph Smith, a man who was called forth as a prophet of God.  Yet much of the Christian world today has much maligned Joseph Smith's character. Even today, as Biblical and Book of Mormon prophecy is fulfilled in America, and archaeological discoveries abound proving Smith was not a fraud, the Christian world still stands in denial of the stark truth. Joseph Smith told the truth. 

Worse, the Christian world churches manufactures false stories of doubtful origins. Telling untruths with an air of authority, which is contradicted by their very Bible in EVERY WAY!

Hebrews indeed came to America, the according to the Bible and Book of Mormon sailed across the sea, to a land of milk and honey, a land of unwalled villages, a land across the sea, west of Jerusalem, a land which dwells alone, separate from the children of the wickedness...

 

Jesus Said:
Matthew 15:24
24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  
Jesus is Shepherd of His Sheep
Ezekiel 34:6
6My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.  

Jesus Declares He Has Other Sheep Besides The Tribe of Judah or Jews:
John 10: 16
"And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."

















Jesus said, John 10: 16

"And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."


Many have said Joseph Smith was a fraud, that he manufactured the Book of Mormon from his own imagination, or the Devil told him how to write the Book of Mormon to deceive men. Yet the Book of Mormon Testifies of Jesus Christ. I have often wondered how the devil could use Jesus Christ to deceive people. Christians have told me Satan could do so. Yet I don't believe Satan has that kind of power. Once day searching with that very question in mind, I found Christ's answer to the very same question.



Mathew 12: 24- 30 Jesus said Satan cannot deceive men in Jesus name else satan's Kingdom will fall.


24But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.







Note Jesus response to the Pharisees.....
25And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

26And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

So if the Book of Mormon speaks of Jesus Christ could Satan have written it? The devils kingdom would have fallen by speaking about and testifying of Christ in order to deceive man.

27And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

29Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. ( Jesus Was speaking of Satan )






To my thinking, Jesus just said He could not enter Satan's house, accept by the spirit of God........
30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

1 John 4

1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. If Joseph Smith is a false prophet, I don't want anything to do with him and you shouldn't either! On the other hand if Joseph Smith is the real deal, the Bible should be able to give a way to judge. John the Beloved gives us the rule for how to judge these things......

2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.



So who do we believe? The scribes and keeper of today's Christian Law? Or do we believe John the Beloved and our Bibles words?

The Book of Mormon claims to be a second testimony of Jesus Christ Descended from Joseph as
mention in Ezekiel chapter 37. While today's " Expert Church Theologians" claim Joseph Smith was a fraud and his work of the devil, they have not once bothered to explain how a huge rock can fall into highway 66 some where in Kentucky saying Jesus Christ is the Son of God? While today's authorities have ridiculed Joseph Smith because he's an easy target, they've not spent time explaining why Hebrew is written on a rock in America.

Tale of Two Nations

Ezekiel 37:19-22





19Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

20And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

21And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.

While the 10 tribes of Israel did revolt, heading north making Samaria their capital city, I would point out that Ezekiel could not have been talking about the 10 tribes of Israel during Samrian times. Because there will be a record to descend from the Jew and a record to descend from a branch of Joseph of Egypt testifying of God. That both these books shall become one in God's had.


My Question

My question to you is this. We know what the stick of Judah is our Bible. Our Bible came from the Jewish people. But who or what is the stick of Joseph? Few realize or acknowledge in Genisus that Joseph is given a land for his inheritance. Most authorities have surmised this land to be Middle Eastern Israel. Yet what biblical scripture do we have backing up that location claim? There is more claim the location is over the sea.

Here we live in America, across the sea from Israel and there is a record claiming to be of the branch of Joseph of Egypt, it testifies unerringly of Jesus Christ, confirming the Bibles teachings as being true. Yet it is rejected as a hoax? How can this be? Could it be Salt Lake LDS bad taist in our mouths? Could be.

Just because the Salt Lake Church commits past terrible and sinful acts does not mean the Book of Mormon is anyless true. King Soloman also committed 1,000 acts of polygamous plural marriage. Abraham had plural wives, Jacob ( Israel ) also had plural wives... So did Isaac and Ishmael... These are Biblical people, accepted even as holy men in Christianity.

Yet Joseph Smith who never committed polygamy is considered the devil in carnate... For U.S. Court and Congressional Investigative Evidence visit http://rldsincourt.blogspot.com/

Changing Gears


Is the Bible less true because the Roman Catholics Church changed biblical scripture, poluted the gospel of Jesus Christ, burning Gnostic believers at the stake alive, and ruthlessly murdered, assasinated and made war upon many nations, continents and people? No the Bible is true. But not because of a particular church said so. But Because the Holy Spirit of God, even Jesus Christ Himself bears whittness to it's truth unto us. Not only does the Holy Spirit bear whittness unto us the Bible is true, but the earth also bears whittness the Bible is true.

Therefore would it not be folly of us to discount the Book of Mormom because of the Salt Lake Church?
Most do not know the Salt Lake Mormon Church was not started by Jospeph Smith. This can be proven, both by legal history, church history, and the Bible and Book of Mormon. Also the Courts of the United States. http://rldsincourt.blogspot.com/

And while there is vast amounts archeaological artifacts, being found, they have been quickly discredited by the world and worlds churches and many archaeologist of this world as frauds...

Yet 175 years later Achaeology, state and county governments in America are finding Jesus Christ or someone who knew about Jesus Christ had lived in America, long before Columbus ever arrived!

Now how could Joseph Smith have known that?


Joseph Smith's Sermon Against Polygamy


Joseph Smith's Sermon Against Polygamy
And Other Evidences

Understand the history of Joseph Smith is like looking through muddy water. You just cannot see the truth from an outsiders perspective. Not unless you study LDS/RLDS Church History. First to understand what happened it must be flatly declared someone is not telling the truth. Who that is I'll let you be the judge.

Because of Many False Accusations, Joseph Smith Hired 4 personal clerk as witnesses to record and time his every word and movements.

Joseph Smith's 4 personal clerks which recorded Smith's every move. Defected to Utah after Brigham Young, taking almost all Smith's records.

Joseph Smith's Personal Clerks Betrayed Him
Brigham Supervised Rewriting Joseph's History 
Most of the "good, faithful, and efficient clerks" were not good and faithful to Joseph. Some were polygamists themselves, and they rewrote Joseph's history under Brigham's direction to make it appear that Joseph was the author of polygamy.
The Mormon Church has published, "Moreover, since the death of the Prophet Joseph, the history has been carefully revised under the strict inspection of President Brigham Young, and approved by him" (LDS History of the Church 1:v–vi).

Now ask the question, if Joseph Smith was originally a polygamist, why did Brigham Young and the Utah LDS Church feel it necessary to rewrite Joseph's History?

Joseph Smiths denial of Polygamy

What a thing it is for a man to be accused of committing adultery, and having seven wives,when I can only find one"—
Joseph Smith (LDS History of the Church 6:411).
[ Joseph Smith Fought Polygamy Index ]
Chapter 19
Joseph's Sermon against Polygamy

Joseph Smith's sermon in which he denied being a polygamist is a fitting closing for this volume, even though there are many more conclusive proofs of his innocence in the long and complicated story of Utah Mormon polygamy. The additional proofs are to be treated in later volumes.
In 1844 William Law, a former member of the First Presidency at Nauvoo, formed a conspiracy along with others to depose Joseph and take the leadership of the Church from him. This group of conspirators went so far as to organize a new church called the "Reformed Mormon Church" and issue a call to the Saints to reject Joseph and join the new church (see the Nauvoo Expositor, Friday, June 7, 1844).
William Law and others also went to the county seat at Carthage and gave testimonies which resulted in three indictments being brought against Joseph. One accused him of being guilty of polygamy. The story of this conspiracy will take several chapters in a later volume to discuss in detail, but Joseph's sermon in answer to the polygamy charge is of utmost value here.
William Marks, a member of the grand jury, and Joseph's devoted friend, made him aware of the grand jury's indictments. The news of the indictments arrived in Nauvoo on Saturday, May 25, a month before Joseph's martyrdom, and spread like a prairie fire. By ten o'clock the next morning when the Sunday worship services began, thousands of Saints gathered at the Stand (an outdoor meeting place near the Temple) to hear the Prophet discuss the indictments. Thomas Bullock, one of Joseph's secretaries, recorded the sermon, which appears today in the LDS Church history under the title, "Address of the Prophet—His Testimony Against the Dissenters at Nauvoo." Excerpts from that sermon are given below.
(It is recommended that the reader study the entire sermon in the LDS History of the Church, Period I, 6:408–412.)
Joseph declared:
Another indictment has been got up against me [the polygamy indictment]. It appears a holy prophet [William Law] has arisen up, and he has testified against me [causing the polygamy indictment to be brought forth].... God knows, then, that the charges against me are false.
I had not been married scarcely five minutes, and made one proclamation of the Gospel, before it was reported that I had seven wives. I mean to live and proclaim the truth as long as I can.
This new holy prophet [William Law] has gone to Carthage and swore that I had told him that I was guilty of adultery. This spiritual wifeism! Why, a man dares not speak or wink, for fear of being accused of this.... William Law ... swears that I have committed adultery. I wish the grand jury would tell me who they [the alleged wives] are—whether it will be a curse or blessing to me....
A man asked me whether the commandment [revelation] was given that a man may have seven wives; and now the new prophet has charged me with adultery.... Wilson Law [William's brother] also swears that I told him I was guilty of adultery.... I have rattled chains before in a dungeon for truth's sake. I am innocent of all these charges, and you can bear witness of my innocence, for you know me yourselves.... What a thing it is for a man to be accused of committing adultery, and having seven wives, when I can only find one.

I am the same man, and as innocent as I was fourteen years ago [when charged with polygamy shortly after his marriage to Emma Hale]; and I can prove them all perjurers. (LDS History of the Church 6:410–411; italics added)
Sermons Talking Points
This sermon is extremely important because in it Joseph Smith declared, just one month and one day before his martyrdom, that he had only one wife. In other words, he declared that he was not a polygamist. It is significant that this sermon is published by the LDS Church itself, in its most important history. The sermon alone proves that Joseph was not a polygamist.


There are a number of points in the sermon which deserve close analysis:
I had not been married scarcely five minutes ... before it was reported that I had seven wives.
Joseph was plagued with polygamy rumors all his public life and always denied being a polygamist. Either he told the truth and was a true prophet; or he was a polygamist who was a liar and base deceiver, and was therefore a fraud and a false prophet. There is no half-way situation in this matter. As previously stated, he never hesitated to tell the truth about any other doctrine, in spite of persecution—which is evidence that he was also telling the truth in this case.
This spiritual wifeism! Why, a man dares not speak or wink, for fear of being accused of this.
This is a reference to Dr. Bennett's teachings two years earlier that Joseph taught that "promiscuous intercourse between the sexes, was a doctrine believed in by the Latter-Day Saints ... that myself and others of the authorities of the church not only sanctioned, but practiced the same wicked acts" (Times and Seasons 3 [July 1, 1842]: 839–840). Joseph is declaring that spiritual wifery rumors are still prevalent in Nauvoo, and that they are all false.
A man asked me whether the commandment was given that a man may have seven wives.
If Joseph had been guilty of polygamy, and was trying to keep it secret as the Utah polygamists claim, he certainly would not have made this statement. The truth is that he wanted to get the whole matter out in the open and to put a stop to the polygamous activities which some of the apostles and their friends were practicing at the time.


What a thing it is for a man to be accused of ... having seven wives, when I can only find one.
Here is a definite declaration by the Prophet that he had only one wife—Emma. This statement alone answers the question of whether or not he was guilty of polygamy. Those who later claimed that he had more wives were polygamists themselves, who used his name to cover their own crimes of polygamy. Or, like William Law, claimed Joseph was a polygamist in order to depose him.
I can prove them all perjurers. Joseph's statement that "I can prove them all perjurers" was very significant, for it meant that he had foreseen the coming problem of being accused of polygamy and had taken the measures to be able to prove that he was innocent. He declared in the same sermon:

For the last three years I have a record of all my acts and proceedings, for I have kept several good, faithful, and efficient clerks in constant employ; they have accompanied me everywhere, and carefully kept my history, and they have written down what I have done, where I have been, and what I have said; therefore my enemies cannot charge me with any day, time, or place, but what I have written testimony to prove my actions; and my enemies cannot prove anything against me. (LDS History of the Church 6:409)


Unfortunately, Joseph's carefully laid plans to prove his innocence were thwarted by Brigham Young and his followers—for they took Joseph's papers with them to Utah and kept them from the public.
Joseph Smith III (son of the Martyr) explained:
At the death of my father, Joseph W. Coolidge was appointed administrator of the estate.... The private and personal correspondence of my father, many books and some other matters of personal character were in his office in care of [Apostle] Willard Richards, and others, clerks and officials. These were either retained by the administrator upon his own responsibility; or were refused to my mother's demand at the direction of the Twelve; the latter we were at the time led to believe.... In answer to repeated demands for my father's private papers, journal and correspondence, made by my mother, there was an invariable denial. (Edward W. Tullidge, Life of Joseph the Prophet, 744–745)
In another account Joseph III stated concerning the LDS leaders' refusal to return his father's private papers to Emma:
His private records, biography, portions of history—family and general—manuscripts, memoranda, and parts of his library were all included in this refusal to comply with Mother's request. (Saints' Herald 82 [January 29, 1935]: 144)


Most of the "good, faithful, and efficient clerks" were not good and faithful to Joseph. Some were polygamists themselves, and they rewrote Joseph's history under Brigham's direction to make it appear that Joseph was the author of polygamy.
The Mormon Church has published, "Moreover, since the death of the Prophet Joseph, the history has been carefully revised under the strict inspection of President Brigham Young, and approved by him" (LDS History of the Church 1:v–vi).
Elder Charles Wandell, upon reading Joseph's history as published by the LDS Church, declared that Joseph's history had been changed. He asserted:
I notice these interpolations because having been employed (myself) in the Historian's office at Nauvoo by Doctor Richards, and employed, too, in 1845, in compiling this very autobiography, I know that after Joseph's death his memoir was "doctored" to suit the new order of things, and this, too, by the direct order of Brigham Young to Doctor Richards and systematically by Richards. (RLDS History of the Church 4:97)

After Joseph's death, Brigham Young expanded his polygamous base by bringing more and more Saints into the polygamy fold. After he had led his followers to Utah and Joseph had been dead for eight years, Brigham publicly presented to the Saints a mysterious document (Section 132 of the LDS Doctrine and Covenants). He claimed that it was only a copy of an original revelation which Joseph had received. Brigham claimed that he had kept the copy secretly hidden in his desk. He declared:


This revelation has been in my possession many years; and who has known it? None but those who should know it. I keep a patent lock on my desk, and there does not anything leak out that should not. (Supplement to Millennial Star 15 [1853]: 31; RLDS History of the Church 3:349)

The mystery which was "had in secret chambers" for years was now made public. That mystery was polygamy! Joseph Smith fought against polygamy all of his public life, but Brigham Young managed to bring it into the Church in spite of Joseph's efforts to keep it out. 


U.S. Court Rulings Joseph Smith Did Not Teach Polygamy

February 23, 1880, the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, by its attorneys, appeared before the Court of Common Pleas, Lake County, Ohio, (see journal entry, February term, 1880) as plaintiff, asking for possession of the Kirtland Temple, an edifice erected during the early days of the church, and prior to the death of Joseph Smith the Martyr. The church in Utah, then presided over by John Taylor, was named with others as defendants.
 
Judge L. S. Sherman rendered the following decision:


"That the said Plaintiff, the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a Religious Society, founded and organized upon the same doctrines and tenets, and having the same church organization, as the original Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, organized in 1830, by Joseph Smith, and was organized pursuant to the constitution, laws and usages of said original Church, and has branches located in Illinois, Ohio, and other States.



That the church in Utah, the Defendant of which John Taylor is president, has materially and largely departed from the faith, doctrines, laws, ordinances and usages of said original Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and has incorporated into its system of faith the doctrines of celestial marriage and a plurality of wives, and the doctrine of Adam-god worship, contrary to the laws and constitution of said original Church.

And the Court do further find that the Plaintiff, the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the True and Lawful continuation of, and successor to the said original Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, organized in 1830, and is entitled in law to all its rights and property."

In a case tried before Judge John F. Philips, in the Circuit Court of the United States, for the Western District of Missouri, Western Division, at Kansas City, Missouri.

In his decision, rendered March 16, 1894, Judge Philips said:

The Book of Mormon itself inveighed against the sin of polygamy.... Conformably to the Book of Mormon, the Book of Doctrine and Covenants expressly declared "that we believe that one man should have but one wife, and one woman but one husband." And this declaration of the church on this subject reappeared in the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, editions of 1846 and 1856. Its first appearance as a dogma of the church (the dogma of polygamy) was in the Utah Church in 1852.


Claim is made by the Utah Church that this doctrine is predicated of a revelation made to Joseph Smith in July, 1843. No such revelation was ever made public during the life of Joseph Smith, and under the law of the church it could not become an article of faith and belief until submitted to and adopted by the church. This was never done ....

Other Evidence Joseph Smith's Sermon Against Polygamy
Was Truth
 Mark Forscutt’s Testimony Concerning Emma
Brigham Young insisted his personal secretary, Mark Forscutt take a plural wife. Mark refused and fled Utah to save his life. Mark later became an Apostle in the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ. Later he interviewed Emma Smith to get her testimony pertaining weather Joseph Smith ever taught polygamy.  
Here his diary records as reading: 


Thur. Sep. 13/77.
Spent day visiting at Nauvoo, Sister Emma (widow of the Martyr) told me that she remembered Joseph having said in answer to a question from Sister , Mother of the Brothers Brackenbury, as to whether Brigham would not lead the church in case of his (Joseph’s) death,—"I would pity the people that should follow Brigham as a leader," and in answer to another question as to why he would pity them, Joseph answered, "Because He would lead them to hell". She also related that after Brigham came into power in Nauvoo, she sought several times to see him; but did not succeed, and finally sent for him. He came, bringing witnesses with him, and enquired what she wished. She asked him why he was teaching or allowing to be taught the doctrines and practises [sic] he was [spiritual wifery and polygamy], to which he replied he knew of nothing of the kind she referred to, and if she knew of any one indulging in such practises, and would inform on them, they should be taken up and dealt with. She replied, "Why, Brigham you need not talk like that; you know these things are done. It is so plain, that even a stranger can not come and walk through our streets without witnessing it. You know too that Joseph in my presence told you that you had been teaching such things while he was alive, and that he commanded you in the name of the Lord, to teach them no more, or judgments would overtake you." He left and she had no conversation with him afterward (Mark Forscutt’s Diary, pages 81–82).
  
Apostle Jason Briggs’ Interview  Supports Joseph Smith's Sermon
Emma Smith after Joseph Smith's death remarried. She later became Emma Hale Smith Bidamon
Apostle Jason Briggs interviewed Emma about Joseph and the purported polygamy revelation he supposedly given in 1843. Emma Smith Bidamon's answers in blue.
J. W. Briggs.—Mrs. Bidamon, have you seen the revelation on polygamy, published by Orson Pratt, in the Seer, in 1852 [Section 132 in the Utah Doctrine and Covenants]?  

Mrs. B.—I have.

J.W.B.—Have you read it?
 
Mrs. B.—I have read it, and heard it read.
 J.W.B.—Did you ever see that document in manuscript, previous to its publication, by Pratt?
 

Mrs. B.—I never did. 
J.W.B.—Did you ever see any document of that kind, purporting to be a revelation, to authorize polygamy?
  
Mrs. B.—No; I never did.
  
J.W.B.—Did Joseph Smith ever teach you the principles of polygamy as being revealed to him, or as a correct and righteous principle?
 
Mrs. B.—He never did.
  
J.W.B.—What about the statement of Brigham Young, that you burnt the original manuscript of that revelation?
 
Mrs. B.—It is false in all its parts, made out of whole cloth without any foundation in truth 
(The Messenger, vol. 1, p. 23).

Mary Page Eaton Supports Smith's Sermon, She Testified that Joseph Was Not a Polygamist
Throughout her long life, Mary Judd Page Eaton declared that Brigham Young, and not Joseph Smith, had introduced polygamy into the Church. As recorded in the Vision magazine, December 2002 (No. 42), Mary and her husband, Apostle John E. Page, lived in Nauvoo after Joseph’s death. During that time, Apostle Page was expelled for opposing Brigham Young’s measures, which included the introduction of false temple endowments and plural and celestial marriage.Mary later asserted:I can prove, by some of the covenants we were required to make, that Joseph never originated them. Mr. Page was with me, and went through the same ceremonies. The words of our covenants were spoken to us by Brigham. After we had received the endowment in the temple, as soon as we were alone in our house, Mr. Page said to me, "Mary, I tell you that endowment is all of the devil." (The Saints’ Advocate 5 [March 1883j: 295)


Further Evidence Supporting Smith's Sermon
Lorenzo Wasson Testified of Bennett's Guilt and Joseph's Innocence


One of Joseph's primary witnesses to his fidelity and Bennett's immorality was Emma's nephew, Lorenzo D. Wasson, a son of Emma's sister, Elizabeth Wasson. Lorenzo joined the Church and lived with his Aunt Emma and Uncle Joseph, where Bennett also boarded. During the summer of 1841, Lorenzo was upstairs in Joseph and Emma's bedroom at the Homestead, and heard Joseph berating Bennett in the room below. The next summer, on July 30, 1842, while on a missionary journey, Lorenzo wrote Joseph these words: "Uncle, ... If I can be of any service in this Bennett affair I am ready. I was reading in your chamber last summer—yourself and Bennett came into the lower room, and I heard you give J. C. Bennett a tremendous flagellation for practicing iniquity under the base pretence of authority from the heads of the church—if you recollect I came down just before you were through talking. There are many things I can inform you of, if necessary, in relation to Bennett and his prostitutes. I am satisfied of your virtue and integrity. I have been with you to visit the sick, and time and again to houses where you had business of importance, you requested me to do so—many times I knew not why, but I am satisfied it was that you might not be censured by those that were watching you with a jealous eye, and I now solemnly protest before God and man, I never saw a thing unvirtuous in your conduct.... I am your most obedient nephew, L. D. WASSON. (Times and Seasons 3 [August 15, 1842]: 892)


Lorenzo was Joseph's faithful attendant in life and in death. In 1843 Joseph was taken prisoner by Sheriff Reynolds of Missouri at the Wasson home in Dixon, Illinois. Lorenzo and his father's quick action provided Joseph with attorneys and prevented Joseph from being taken to Missouri (see Saints' Herald 82 [January 22, 1935]: 112).

It was Lorenzo who hastened to Nauvoo with a message from Emma, bearing the news to the Saints of Joseph's arrest. And alas, it was Lorenzo that Joseph III remembers seeing "covered with dust, bringing the news" that Joseph and Hyrum had been murdered at Carthage (ibid. [January 29, 1935]: 143).After a mock funeral and entombment for Joseph and Hyrum in June of 1844, Lorenzo and others, carefully chosen by Emma, secretly buried the bodies of the Martyrs in the basement of the Nauvoo House (see George Q. Cannon, The Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet, 529–530). Lorenzo refused to follow the leadership of Brigham Young

Eliza R. Snow Latter Followed Brigham Young To Utah and Became His Plural Wife. 2 years before, she vouched Joseph Smith was not polygamist.

Eliza R. Snow, Signed an 1842 Certificate Which Said There Was No Polygamy in the Church at Nauvoo

1,000 thousand Women Defend Joseph Smith's Innocence

Eliza R. Snow reputed polygamous wife to Joseph Smith
One of the reasons Eliza wanted to barely touch on the subject of polygamy at Nauvoo was because she had helped lead a thousand women in signing a petition, stating that Joseph was not guilty of polygamy as Bennett had charged (see Times and Seasons 3 [August 1, 1842]: 869). After Dr. Bennett left Nauvoo in late June 1842 and published many statements declaring that Joseph was a polygamist, Joseph made a great effort to fight against that false doctrine. Joseph himself published that he "preached ... much against it" (Times and Seasons 3 [July 1, 1842]: 840).


Also, the Ladies' Relief Society, with Emma as the president and Eliza Snow as the secretary, made a strong public stand against polygamy. The Relief Society prepared and published a certificate which declared:
We the undersigned members of the ladies' relief society, and married females do certify and declare that we know of no system of marriage being practised in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints save the one contained in the Book of Doctrine and Covenants.... Emma Smith President...
Eliza R. Snow, Secretary.
(Times and Seasons 3 [October 1, 1842]: 940)

A revelation received on February 9, 1831, and published to this day in the Utah edition of the Doctrine and Covenants as well as our own, commands: "Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shall cleave unto her and none else" (RLDS Section 42:7; Utah Section 42:22).

Joseph Smith Gave Second 1831 Doctrine and Covenants Revelation Against Pural Marriage

The following month, March 1831, another revelation contained this language: "Marriage is ordained of God unto man; wherefore it is lawful that he should have one wife, and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this that the earth might answer the end of its creation" (Doctrine and Covenants 49:3).
 
One Thousand Men Affirmed That Joseph
Was Innocent of Polygamy

It is significant that approximately one thousand men voted to adopt the resolution to "manifest to the world" that they knew Joseph to be virtuous, and one who upheld the laws and constitution of the state of Illinois and the United States. Bigamy was a crime in 1842 in the state of Illinois. Therefore, if Joseph had (as the LDS Church teaches) plural wives under the title of celestial marriage, spiritual wifery, or polygamy, he would have been guilty of committing a crime. Joseph was so well known that if he had had several wives, many people would have known it, and there would have been more votes against him.The thousand men knew of Bennett's plural marriage charges against Joseph in the cases of Martha Brotherton, Nancy Rigdon, Sarah Pratt, and others. Yet, they voted that he was moral, virtuous, and law-abiding—a thousand additional testimonies that Joseph was not a polygamist.

Evidence Native Americans Knew About Jesus Christ Before the Spanish Inquisition of South America.
This Blog is about Jesus Christ. About the Book of Mormon which has been much maligned by men who never heard or saw the truth. Even by some who don't want the truth seen by you or I. We of the western world need to open our eyes. We must wake up. We must believe God is real. We must begin to realized we cannot fit God into a small little box with a pretty red bow, only to open it on Sunday so we may have our small controled dose of God. God is everywhere. Therefore His people will be everywhere. Let's find the evidence of the other places Jesus Christ visited besides Jerusalem... The above photo comes from Monte Alban Mexico. The above cross in similitude to an Egyption Coptic Cross. What connections did Egypt and ancient Mexico have?

Search All Things, Prove All Things True.

Dear reader. To read text articals pertaining Book of Mormon archaeology, scroll half way down.

If the Book of Mormon truly is an ancient history of America, we can search the Book of Mormon, then search archaeology to discover if the Book of Mormon is accurate. 1 Thessalonian's 5:21 states" Prove all things; hold fast that which is good". Only a fool does not test his or her Christian belief to see if it withstands scrutiny and " tough well reasoned questioning". He or she who does not test or question everything in life, religion or career has missed the boat, and the very meaning of life. Which is to find the better way spiritually and temporally, holding fast to that which is good.

THE BIBLICAL CHRIST CARRYING A SHEPHERDS STAFF

THE BIBLICAL CHRIST CARRYING A SHEPHERDS STAFF
In the Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi testifies Christ came to America. Christ, in Gospel of Luke is asked a question by the Apostle Peter most people miss. Peter ask Christ who He was, Christ's reply was, who do YOU/THEY say that I am. Luke 9:20. Native Americans record a white god who walked among them. When asked who He was, His reply was to ask, WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? In ( 1964 ) Pierre Honore wrote a book who's title speaks for it'self. In Quest of the Fair God Pierre Honore illustrates a white God among the Native America, who was named many different names where ever He went. Mr. Honore says, " The legend of a particular white God has survived to our day from all ancient civilizations of Central and South America. The Toltecs and Aztecs of Mexico called Him Quetzalcoatl, the Incas called Him Viracocha To the Maya he was called Kulkulcan who brought them all their laws, and also their script, and was worshiped like a God by the entire people. To the Chibchas, he was Bochica, the white mantle of light. To the Aymara of Peru he was Hyustus, and to this day they will tell you he was fair and had blue eyes. Everywhere in the Indian states of Central and South America the legend of the White God is known, and always ends in the same way. The White God left his people with a solemn promise that he would one day come back."

A Hebrew People In America?

Can there be Hebrews in America? What does the Bible say?



Matthew 15:24



But He ( Jesus ) answered them and said, I am not sent but unto the LOST SHEEP of the house of the house of Israel



Jesus told us He must minister to Israelites " other sheep I have not of this fold then also must I bring ", ( John 10:16 KJV ).



Ezekiel 34:6;11;12-13 declares:



6My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.



11For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.



12As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day** that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.



** ( in the day means during Christ earthly ministry 2000 years ago )



13And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.



For the Book of Mormon to be a valid history of an ancient people long dead, there must be Biblical evidence such a people exist. The words of Christ and Ezekiel confirm such a people are scattered world wide.
