Book of Abraham Examined with Marshall Almarode

July 1, 2022

The Book of Abraham in the Pearl of Great Price Scripture of Mormonism is one of the key sources Mormons use to define their beliefs. In the introduction to the Book of Abraham, Joseph Smith claims he "translated" the Book of Abraham from an Egyptian papyrus he obtained in the 1800s. At the time that he claimed to have "translated" it, no one knew Egyptian, so there were no experts to confirm or refute his "translation", but now experts have revealed the truth that Joseph Smith completely misrepresented the text of the papyrus.

Presenting Joseph Smith's Book of Abraham

July 1, 2022 • Marshall Almarode

The Book of Abraham in the Pearl of Great Price is one of the most obvious fabrications of Joseph Smith. Even the LDS Church admits: “None of the characters on the papyrus fragments mentioned Abraham’s name or any of the events recorded in the book of Abraham. Mormon and non-Mormon Egyptologists agree that the characters on the fragments do not match the translation given in the book of Abraham, though there is not unanimity, even among non-Mormon scholars, about the proper interpretation of the vignettes on these fragments. Scholars have identified the papyrus fragments as parts of standard funerary texts that were deposited with mummified bodies. These fragments date to between the third century B.C.E. and the first century C.E., long after Abraham lived.” (Translation and Historicity of the Book of Abraham, Posted at LDS.org July 8, 2014)

First Vision - Foundation of Mormonism

Joseph Smith's First Vision account separates Mormonism from every Christian denomination when it claims that God commanded Joseph Smith not to join any church because "they were all wrong" and "all" their creeds were an abomination to him. Stating that priesthood authority was lost on earth when the apostles died, the Mormon Church justifies their "authority" to operate the saving ordinances of the gospel through the restoration of the priesthood they claim was given to Joseph Smith. However Mormon Scripture claims some of Jesus' apostles never died so there couldn't be a total apostasy of the church needing "restoration" through Joseph Smith.

Joseph Smith's First Vision Like You've Never Seen Before

July 1, 2022

The First Vision of Joseph Smith forms the foundation of the Mormon Church. Yet, not only are there 9 different versions of the First Vision, if you simply look at the authorized version of the First Vision told today, there are many aspects of it that do not make sense. Watch this video to see the First Vision in a "New Light".

Ezekiel 37 - Two Sticks or Six Sticks?

July 1, 2022

The prophet Ezekiel inscribes two “sticks", one for Judah and one for Joseph, in Ezekiel 37:15–28. While this display was to demonstrate God's plan to reunite the kingdoms of Judah and Israel, Mormons claim these two sticks signify the Bible and the Book of Mormon. If these "sticks" are to denote two sources of spiritual truth, why don't we have six sticks since LDS rely upon many more sources for spiritual instruction?

Discussing Mormon Baptism for the dead

July 1, 2022

Claiming this practice is based on 1 Corinthians 15:29, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that baptism for the dead provides a way for them to redeem their relatives who didn't have an opportunity to accept Mormon ordinances prior to death. This practice of baptism on behalf of the dead becomes of means of ensuring that if their relatives decide to accept the Mormon gospel after they die, they can make it to higher levels of heaven afterward. In this video, we examine their claims in light of the context of 1 Corinthians 15 and Alma 34 in the Book of Mormon.

Discussing the Mormon Priesthood

July 1, 2022 • Marshall Almarode

Reading the Joseph Smith's account of the Mormon Priesthood authority, several holes can be seen. Couple this with the reading of Hebrew's account of Melchizedek Priesthood authority and it is clear Joseph Smith's claimed authority is not valid.
