Esther 5:3; “Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.”

…On one occasion while the prophet was waiting for his boots to be repaired by my brother Dimick in Nauvoo he indulged in recounting personal services rendered him by Dimick; he exhibited his gratitude and greatness of soul in this way:

He said, “Now, Dimick, in return for such acts, you may ask of me what you will and it shall be given you, even if it be to the half of my kingdom.”

Dimick told it to me, and said that in thinking what he should ask for, decided he would not ask for anything that would impoverish Joseph, nor would he ask for worldly honors or goods, but made this request:

“Brother Joseph, I want that where you and your father’s house are (having reference to eternity) there I and my father’s house may be also.”

Joseph sat in meditation but a moment, and then said, “Dimick, in the name of Jesus Christ it shall be even as you ask.’” – Yours truly, O. B. Huntington

Mark 6:23; “And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.”

This is another huge prayer request! Pray for the Mormons who believe this – it also serves as a great opportunity to ask your Mormon friends, and loved ones what they think of it.

Leave it to Joe Smith to plagiarize both the Old and New Testament to make a promise he couldn’t keep.

Just where did Smith get this ‘kingdom’ from?

When did he acquire a kingdom?

What does this kingdom look like?

Where is it located?

When did he get a kingdom?

When did he become a king?

Why did he have a kingdom?

If everyone is getting their own kingdom, and planet at the end, why would this man need, or want, Joe Smith’s kingdom?

Why did Smith plagiarize two books of the Bible when historically, he denounced their authenticity?
