False Prophecies of Joseph Smith

26 August

Angelic Vision: Indians Came from Abraham

The Joseph Smith Papers, 9-11 November 1835, Monday-Wednesday, Journal 1835-1836, p. 24; “…he [the angel] said unto me I am a messenger sent from God, be faithful and keep his commandments in all things, he told me of a sacred record which was written on plates of gold, I saw in the vision the place where they were deposited, he said the Indians were the literal descendants of Abraham…”  http://josephsmithpapers.org/paperSummary/journal-1835%E2%80%931836#25

While it’s believable that something appeared to Smith, it’s obvious he brought a false message and Smith just passed it on to the unsuspecting.
