God is my ‘right hand man’ – Joseph Smith

September 19, 2009

I combat the errors of the ages; I meet the violence of mobs; I cope with illegal proceedings from executive authority; I cut the Gordian knot of powers, and I solve mathematical problems of universities, with truth — diamond truth; and God is my ‘right hand man’.

Joseph Smith, History of the Church 6:78

If they want a beardless boy to whip all the world, I will get on the top of a mountain and crow like a rooster: I shall always beat them…I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him, but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.

‘I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam’  – I suppose we can’t speak of the Fundamentalist LDS then?

Joseph Smith, False Prophet

August 19, 2009

In (Joseph Smith’s) diary entry for 1843 we find: “I prophesy in the name of the Lord God, and let it be written, that the Son of Man shall not come in the clouds until I am 85 years of age, 48 years hense, or about 1890.” (The Revelations of Joseph Smith, p.345)

in Mormonism, A Gold-Plated Religion, Mike and Ann Thomas, Alpha, p.84

When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.
