LDS; Ninety-nine Percent of LDS Related to Joseph, Son of Jacob – Mormon Quotes

Studies in Scripture 3:63; The chances are probably more than nine out of ten that you and I are the lineal blood descendants of Joseph, the son of Jacob. In fact, “Nearly every member of the Church is undoubtedly a literal blood descendant of Jacob.”  More specifically, President Joseph Fielding Smith explained, “At the present time most of those who are receiving the Gospel are of the tribe of Ephraim [son of Joseph].”

Isaiah 59:4-8None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.  5 They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.  6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.  7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.  8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

There are no members of the tribe of Ephraim left.  God told us as much in the book of Obadiah.
