    New 4 volume history "transparent, honest, faithful"

    I am definitely planning to use this new history when I teach Doctrine and Covenants in Seminary next year, as well as the Gospel Topics essays and JSP.

    FAIR Mormon article author

    The article names were hidden due to a change in the way the website was formatted, but they are still there - just hidden. We haven't gotten that issue fixed yet. I've now manually added the name to this particular article.
  3. I'm not buying her story at all. She said: "I started by joining just about every Ex-Mormon community on the web, creating fake accounts on each to be able to search and track what was within." All of the major ex-Mormon online forums are publicly accessible and viewable by anyone. You can read and search them freely without joining them. (How does one "spy" on a public forum?)

    Scrutinizing general conference

    Yes...you need to watch out for those high powered Costco lawyers.

    Apologetics - the new derogatory term

    You are reading WAY too much into the order of the articles. I am the one that arranged them (and all others in the FairMormon wiki). The order is completely random: The sub-articles are not organized by importance, alphabetically or in any particular deliberate order. I have been too consumed with the task of gathering all of the subject articles under specific topics (the website has undergone a major redesign to make it mobile friendly, and it isn't finished yet). One of these days I plan to go through each set and determine some sort of logical order for presenting the subarticles, but at the moment I'm just trying to group them properly. I did, however, just notice that the "Jump to Subtopic" for the Gardner article wasn't included in the list, so I've added it (there are many such instances that I still need to correct in the wiki): Joseph Smith used the same "rock in hat" seer stone for translating that he used for "money digging" JUMP TO SUBTOPIC: Gospel Topics: "As Joseph grew to understand his prophetic calling, he learned that he could use this stone for the higher purpose of translating scripture" Question: Why would Joseph Smith use the same stone for translating the Book of Mormon that he used for "money digging"? Question: What role did Joseph fill in the community as a youth? Question: Didn't Joseph's 1826 Bainbridge appearance before a judge prove that he had previously been using his stone for nefarious purposes? Question: Why would Joseph Smith not continue to use the sacred interpreters provided with the Nephite record? Question: Did Joseph use his seer stone to view the location of the gold plates in the Hill Cumorah? Question: Did Joseph Smith use his own seer stone to translate the Book of Mormon? Question: Did Joseph Smith use the Nephite interpreters to translate? Or did he use his own seer stone? Question: Did Joseph Fielding Smith say that it was not reasonable for Joseph Smith to use a seer stone to translate the Book of Mormon? Question: Why is the "white stone" that we are to receive upon entry to the Celestial kingdom not discussed extensively in Sunday School? Brant A.
