Journal of Book of Mormon Studies, Vol. 2, Issue 2, pg. 13; “The Book of Mormon, Historicity, and Faith – Our faith in Christ is grounded in the work of redemption that was accomplished in a specific garden and on a designated cross in a particular moment in our earth’s history. It is not the exact site that matters so much as it is that there was such a site. If Jesus did not in reality suffer and bleed and die and rise from the tomb, then we are spiritually doomed, no matter how committed we may be to the “faith event” celebrated by the first-century Christians.” – Robert Millet
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12; “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Lies, lies, lies. The historical truth is that Jesus did not pay for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, but on the CROSS!
