Where are the golden plates?
Mormon Doctrine, pg. 327; “Moroni deposited the plates in the Hill Cumorah in about 421 A.D., and then as a resurrected being revealed the hiding place to the Prophet on September 22, 1823. Four years later the Prophet was permitted to obtain possession of them, but the actual translation of the portion we now have as the Book of Mormon did not take place until between April 7 and June 11, 1829. Thereafter the plates were returned to the custody of Moroni. (Jos. Smith 2:27-65; D. & C. 27:5; Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, pp. 215-226.”
Ephesians 4:14; “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”
There’s not a shred of evidence these plates let alone the angel Moroni ever existed except in the mind of Joseph Smith.
Sadly, the Mormon people will never see those plates to prove the existence of their god or even the ancient inhabitants of Mesoamerica. Unlike all the archaeological evidences that have been unearthed showing the existence of cities and people from the bible, nothing has ever been found to back up the stories in the Book of Mormon – not even a pottery shard. We’re praying each and every day the eyes of the Mormon people will be opened to receive the truth that’s already been presented to them in the Bible (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
