Journal of Discourses 14:11-12; “Let me here observe that the Book of Mormon, which has been published for forty-one years, gives an account of the first settlement of this country by these inhabitants, showing that they are not the ten tribes, but they are the descendants of one tribe, and they came to this country about six hundred years before Christ. The people when they first landed consisted of only two or three families; and instead of landing on the north-west coast of North America, they landed on the south-west coast of South America. A history of the escape of these few families from Jerusalem is contained in the Book of Mormon.” – Brigham Young
Galatians 3:1-3; “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”
Special note: Please read Jeremiah 42:1-22 which took place circa 600 BC.
One of the all time best bible studies I did was on the book of Jeremiah. I think every single Mormon and ex-Mormon needs to study Jeremiah because it’ll completely change your mind about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.
Either Jeremiah’s written account is truth or the Book of Mormon is truth but you can’t believe in both.
