Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg. 331; “The question is frequently asked, “Can we not be saved without going through with all those ordinances?” I would answer, No, not the fulness of salvation. Jesus said, There are many mansions in my Father’s house, and I will go and prepare a place for you. House here named should have been translated kingdom; and any person who is exalted to the highest mansion has to abide a celestial law, and the whole law too.”
Colossians 2:13-14; “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.”
Joseph Smith is retranslating scripture. Smith didn’t like using dictionaries, he didn’t speak or read Greek, Aramaic or Hebrew yet he’s telling the people the scripture should actually say something it doesn’t.
Would you buy into that?
