Journal of Discourses 14:149 “…much as he is scorned and despised, he had hundreds and thousands who would have gone to the death with him when he went to death, but Jesus found not a man. Joseph Smith, though he spent only fourteen years in presiding over this people, organizing the Church, proclaiming the Gospel and receiving revelations, yet had hundreds and thousands of men and women who were ready to go to the death with him.” — Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, June 25, 1871
Matthew 26:56 “But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.”
The Church never seems to miss a chance to malign our Lord, and exalt Joe Smith.
While it’s true Jesus’ disciples fled at the time of His arrest, Brigham conveniently left out it was prophesied this would happen. He also didn’t mention that all but John, were martyred for the Lord.
No one did that for Joseph, but you won’t hear that part of the story from the LDS Church.
Continue to pray for those caught in these types of lies because they’re still going on today.
With Love in Christ;
