Four Sources for Joseph Smith’s Plagiarisms

24 November

Exodus 20:16; “Thou shalt not steal.”

The Lord’s directives are pretty straightforward. There’s no doubt Joe Smith didn’t get the memo, or he rationalized his ungodly behavior for the sake of himself and his god.

Today we’re looking at a few of the books that were easily available to Smith when he lived in Palmyra, NY. Like yesterday when we looked at the sources from where he retrieved info to plagiarize his vision, key portions of the following books can be found in the Book of Mormon. If you’re inspired of God to translate something, why are you stealing?

 

If you’re LDS you have to ask yourself, how many things must I accept as true when clearly they are not?!

If you’re LDS, we want you to know we don’t publish these things to bash you, or the Church. Rather, we do this because we feel you have the right to know, and be informed of who it is you’re worshiping!

With Love in Christ;
