Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 461; “Many Latter-day Saints believe that they are of the branch of Ephraim, of whom Joseph prophesied and that the Prophet Joseph Smith is the “choice seer”.”
Obadiah 1:10-11; “For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever. 11 In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.” (See all of Obadiah 1:1-21)
My mother is one of those many Mormons who believe they’re from the tribe of Ephraim. It’s heartbreaking to know that she holds onto these lies.
