Over the past few months a few of my blog posts have made people write me some not so nice emails. To tell me that I was ANTI, I was letting the Devil overtake me and so on.
All I have tried to do and will continue to do is to post things that are coming directly from the Church, that most members will not read or research. Have any of you truly read the Essays that have came out the past few years, that have changed much of the LEARNED and TAUGHT history we grew up with? I doubt it.
I have said this before and I will continue to say it, " The Church is changing what we have been taught for years slowly but surely with these Essays and adding them into the new manuals where in the next generation our kids won't know what we were taught or it will be a more cleaned up version." Find some of the old manuals and compare them to the newer ones being issued.
Here is a link to an article on a talk given by Russel M. Nelson about the Book of Mormon.
What i find particularly galling is that the Church now wants us to believe that there were other civilizations living in the Americas at the time of the Nephites, but as we learned growing up, it was never that. The land was the Land of Lehi's inheritance, the promised land, a land flowing with milk and honey, a land which had been kept from the knowledge of men and preserved solely for Lehi and his posterity! In fact, that's still canonized:
And behold, it is the wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance.
( 2 Nephi 1:8 )
But now Nelson says "It is not a record of all former inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere, but only a particular groups people"
So, LDS Church which will it be? Canonized scripture, or the word of a current Propet, see and revelator? In 40 to 50 years time will Nelson have been just " speaking as a man"? As you said with Brigham Young about his blacks in the Priesthood inspirational talk in the 1800's and how it would never happen.
Funny how the banning of Polygamy happened the same year Utah became a State. You had to do that to become a State and to be allowed in the Union. And how about in 1978 when "miraculous" revelation allowed Blacks in the Preisthood, when you were days away from getting your Tax Exempt Status revoked by the US. Govt if you did not comply. So many things are revealed as revelation and changed when things are about to hit the fan.
There is so much more to the falseness of the B of M. There are many books that are almost exactly word for word or phrased the exact same with similar scenarios that came out years earlier than the B of M. And i am sure you can find apologists from the LDS side to dissuade those books. But the proof is in the pudding. The Church is crumbling. People are starting to see what it really is ( A Business ) hiding behind a Religion.
Here is one book you should look up and compare it to the Book of Mormon and it was written before the B of M.
Its called The Late War between the United State and Great Britain. Enjoy.
