History of the Church 3:51; “”That in the dispensation of the fullness of times, he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth.” Now, I ask, what is a dispensation? I answer, it is power and authority to dispense the word of God, and to administer in all the ordinances thereof.”
Galatians 4:4-5; “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”
Smith couldn’t accept the fact that he wasn’t the Messiah. His ego was so overblown that he had to lie about every single thing in the Bible.
It kind of reminds me of what happened on D-Day at Normandy. Hitler’s advisors recorded that when they told him of the impending doom he laughed and said “it’s what we’ve been waiting for”.
Both are a sign of insanity.
