Temple in Independence, Missouri

Doctrine and Covenants 84:5, 31; “For verily this generation shall not all pass away until an house shall be built unto the Lord, and a cloud shall rest upon it, which cloud shall be even the glory of the Lord, which shall fill the house.  Therefore, as I said concerning the sons of Moses—for the sons of Moses and also the sons of Aaron shall offer an acceptable offering and sacrifice in the house of the Lord, which house shall be built unto the Lord in this generation, upon the consecrated spot as I have appointed—”

Titus 1:13-14; “This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.”

The prophecy given by Smith in Kirtland, Ohio on September 22nd & 23rd, 1832 qualifies as a false prophecy.  No temple was built in Missouri before Smith died in June 1844. 

Also see History of the Church 1:286-295. 

www.dictionary.com defines generation this way; “the entire body of individuals born and living at about the same time – the term of years, roughly 30 among human beings, accepted as the average period between the birth of parents and the birth of their offspring. 

So – 30 years for a generation means this is 150 years late.  At the time of this writing it’s 4/2012.
