False Prophecy of Joseph Smith

25 April

Confounding and Shaming Your Enemies

D&C 71:7-10; “7 Wherefore, confound your enemies; call upon them to meet you both in public and in private; and inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made manifest.  8 Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons against the Lord.9 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you—there is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper;10 And if any man lift his voice against you he shall be confounded in mine own due time.”

Prophecy given in Hiram, OH on December 1, 1831. History of the Church 1:238-239.

There have been hundreds (countless really) of people who’ve come up against the Mormon Church to prove their doctrines aren’t biblical – all without becoming confounded!  Even today you can see ministries putzin’ right along without being confounded, including this one!

    Definition of CONFOUNDED: confused, perplexed
    From time to time I have shown you where your conclusions were confused and that is one of the definitions of confounded.

      Fred – so glad you found a dictionary! Like I said before Fred you’re the one that’s confused and it makes us sad you’ve been lied to and you believed the lie because of God.

    Just my observations here, but most of the ministries that you talk about have failed to show anything other than a difference in interpretation. Actually, all those that I have had personal contact with have generally resorted to personal attacks when their errors are plainly made manifest.

    Now, no one can be confounded about their own doctrine. So, when people compare their to ours this does not apply. It is when people attempt to show false prophecies, or contradictions and that sort of thing in the LDS church that they become confounded. I have seen it many times.

    A prime example of confounding people can be found on your thread “Mormon Termonology and Dilema,” posted 12/11/2011, dealing with the use of the term Pastor.

    Shem and Fred:
    Here’s a read challenge for you:
    Mormonism: Life Under False Pretenses, By Lee Baker, Ex-Mormon Bishop. He shows you the proof in Mormonism of its falsehood, which seems to elude you both.
