Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

Mormon-owned press releasing Joseph Smith journals

I like the part when he talked with god and jesus christ and they told him to “restore the original church.”

I always thought the Apostolic’s where the original church? This is strange because many Christian’s believe this to be blasphemy, when some one starts or rewrites biblical or true church doctrine.

Be careful, Jim Jones also had messages from “god!”

Mormon-owned press releasing Joseph Smith journals [read more]
It’s written by a man many consider a confident and charismatic religious prophet, but Joseph Smith’s journal immediately betrays an inkling of self-doubt: His first sentence is scratched out.

“He’s making this very deliberate effort to keep a record. At the same time, he has this self-consciousness,” said Richard Turley Jr., assistant historian for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “So he writes it out, scratches it out, takes a deep breath, writes it again.”

By the next line, Smith is on his knees in prayer as he asks for God’s help.

For Turley, the picture of Smith – unvarnished and somehow more human than a prophet should be – represents the beauty of the “The Joseph Smith Papers,” the first book published by a new Mormon church-owned press.

“What I get from this – besides the information, most of which has been accessible in the past – what I get from this is a feeling for the man,” Turley said Monday, when the book was released to the public.

Smith founded the Mormon church in 1830 with just six adherents, most of them members of his own family. By the time he was shot and killed in 1844, hundreds had joined the church, which was maligned and persecuted for its practice of polygamy and the exhortations of its colorful leader.

Painstakingly transcribed from hundreds of fragile, handwritten pages, the 500-page volume builds on decades of historical scholarship to provide a more accurate and complete look at the early church and Smith’s life, Turley said.

The inaugural work of The Church Historian’s Press covers Smith’s writings from 1832 to 1839 and includes his account of the “First Vision,” in which God and Jesus Christ tell Smith he must restore the original church on Earth.

Fanatical Fatwa Targets US Constitutions. Fanatical religious groups plan on undermining Our constitutions in the name of their religion. They will try to enforce their religious dogma on the rest of us. They dont care what your religious view is.
