While researching info for another article the other day, I came upon a few images of the infamous Hill Cumorah, aka Ramah Hill, that sits right outside of Joe Smith’s hometown, Palmyra, New York.

There’s nothing wrong with the images in and of themselves, but they got me to thinking about Smith’s claims in the Book of Mormon. Things like these often serve as another reminder to me of how the Church isn’t true.

If they truly loved the God of the Bible, why don’t they turn their attention to biblical events, and teach about tangible evidences we can see, feel, touch in the true ‘Promised Land’? Just as God has revealed it physically, He’s also revealed Himself to us spiritually as it says in Romans.

Romans 1:19; “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.”

We’ve looked at the false prophecies on how it’d be physically impossible for two million people to camp, live, and fight a war on Hill Cumorah. You can find the first false prophecy about this in our investigation, False Prophecies of Mormonism Jaredites on Hill Cumorah.

The second false prophecy Smith made about a mass killing in war time on Hill Cumorah can be found in our article False Prophecies in the Book of Mormon, which chronicles the geographical dimensions of Cumorah, and how there’s no archaeological evidence of such a story.

The pictures I discovered the other day simply adds more proof Smith’s false prophecy in the Book of Mormon was just that – a lie. All three images came from lds.org.

Image #1 with two people standing atop a knoll in upstate New York, are Lucy W. Smith, and Pliny Sexton taken in 1920. Pliny Sexton was the original owner of Hill Cumorah. He refused to sell the property to the Saints, but after his death his daughter finally gave in to the repeated requests.

Image #2 is simply a shot of Hill Cumorah from a distance. I’ve included it here to show how Hill Cumorah is nothing but a knoll.

Image #3 is labeled as ‘Joseph F. Smith and others’, taken in 1905. This image shows 19-20 people walking down Hill Cumorah.

We’re not sure if the Church was, or wasn’t aware that they were proving Joe Smith a false prophet when a line of people walked down the small hill.

However, it was one of those priceless examples where we couldn’t have dreamt of a better scenario to show it’d be impossible for two million people to live, fight a war, and die, on that tiny hill.

In addition to that story, Smith wanted people to believe ‘hundreds of thousands’ did the same thing more than 2,000 years later with the story of Mormon and Moroni. See intro for Mormon chapter six.

All this would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic. The people who are most affected by his lies are those still trapped in the web of Mormonism. The older I get, the more people I see in my family who are aging as well, and passing away still believing in Smith’s tall tales. I lost my father last year, and although he didn’t buy into Mormonism, he learned to hate and mistrust everyone because of all the lies he believed while growing up in the Church. Both scenarios are an absolute travesty that breaks my heart.

When you have the opportunity, share the info you read here with the Mormon you know!
