However, some of the changes do affect doctrine such as the following examples:. Did you note that in each of the above changes the LDS church has changed these verses that refer to Jesus Christ as God the Father so that they now refer to Him only as a Son.
How could Smith have made such an error if the Book of Mormon as given to Joseph Smith was "the most correct" of any book ever written? The bottom line is that the original Book of Mormon recognized the Deity of Jesus Christ and the modern copies do not! The Aaronic and Melchizedek priesthood. The plurality of gods.
God is an exalted man. Man can become a god. The three degrees of heaven. The plurality of wives. The Word of Wisdom.
The pre-existence of the human spirit. Baptisms for the dead. Celestial marriage. The need of a present day prophet.
The temple works of washings, anointing, endowments, sealing. The Book of Mormon. It says in Jacob , that God spoke both man and the earth into existence by the power of his word. Wherefore, if God being able to speak and the world was, and to speak and man was created. In other words, their bodies were left there, unburied.
During the Battle of Gettysburg of the American Civil War there were 55, soldiers wounded, 6, of them killed on the battlefield and 4, more whose wounds were mortal. Eyewitnesses said that there was so much blood from the dead and injured that there were parts of the battlefield that seemed like streams of blood. So many men and horses died that all could not be buried at once and many corpses were left on the battlefield until a few days later when others were hired to do the task. If 6, men died on the battlefield at Gettysburg, what would a battlefield look like with hundreds of thousands dead?
Bullets by the thousands are found at Gettysburg. Nothing however has been found at hill Cumorah. University of Rochester paleontologist and stratigrapher Carl Brett has worked in the Palmyra, New York area where hill Cumorah is located and is familiar with the hill and its geologic conditions.
He says that if hundreds of thousands were slaughtered at the hill and not buried, there would still be skeletal remains on the surface today, even after 1, years. Scavengers and weather conditions would account for why much is gone, but there would still be quite enough left to look at. Metallic artifacts from weapons and armor would also be easily found. During a series of conversations I once had with a Mormon friend and some Mormon missionaries, I turned to them on the first meeting and said that one objection I had to Mormonism was that there is no archaeological evidence to support the stories in the Book of Mormon.

One of the missionaries smiled confidently and claimed there was a lot of evidence from archaeology to support the historical truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I asked him to show me some. He said he did not have any information with him, but would bring some to our next meeting. He did. Needless to say he was shocked when I quoted the Mormon scholars below who refuted the very materials he had in hand!
Few of the writings they have produced are of genuine consequence in archaeological terms. Some are clearly on the oddball fringe; others have credible qualifications. Hunter; however, they are not qualified to handle the archaeological materials their works often involve. Those volumes which most flagrantly ignore time and space and most radically distort, misinterpret, or ignore portions of the archaeological evidence are the popular Farnsworth volumes.
Hunter and a number of smaller pamphlets and works by various authors New World-Old World comparisons have been less popular but fraught with problems. He does not know New World culture history well, and his writing ignores the considerable indigenous elements in favor of exclusively Old World patterns. In situations where sources of religious and secular authority conflict with each other, a Latter-day Saint sometimes finds himself in a quandary.
Science does not arrive at its conclusions by syllogism, and no people on earth deplore proof demonstration by syllogism more loudly than real archaeologists do. Yet, Mr. The only clear and positive thing about the whole study is the objective the author is determined to reach. Again, everyone of the above are practicing Mormons.
According to BYU anthropologist John Clark, virtually all of the professional archaeologists there admit that archaeological finds which specifically tie the past to events in the Book of Mormon are missing. These practicing Mormons call books, and their authors, that list sensational findings not qualified, inadequate, and speculative. Some Mormons will respond that these archaeologists do not represent the official Church position, so their opinions are not credible. But why trivialize and dismiss the findings of the overwhelming consensus of practicing Mormons who are professional archaeologists, yet accept, without question , the official Mormon Church position?

After Joseph Smith founded the Mormon Church in , he was gunned down by an angry mob fourteen years later as he tried to escape a jail following his arrest. The next few years continued to be tumultuous for the church as well as for Smith's successor, Brigham Young. On a Sunday afternoon, May 18, in a discourse given in the Mormon Tabernacle in Odgen Utah, Mormon Prophet Brigham Young challenged his church's opponents with this statement: "Take up the Bible, compare the religion of the Latter-Day-Saints with it, and see if it will stand the test.
Rather than relying on a feeling or "a burning in the bosom" as our Mormon friends contend to confirm the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, we need to do as Brigham Young suggested, and test it. But before a test can be performed, we must determine how to test it. Whatever means that we use to authenticate the accuracy and claims of the Bible can also be used to do the same with the Book of Mormon.
