Book of Mormon Foundation (BOMF) https://www.bomf.org/ started from the apostate The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (RLDS) now calling itself The Community of Christ (CofC) with the “Restoration Branches” which split off of CofC. Here: https://www.bomf.org/bmf-history.html On its site is the Queztal Codex: https://www.bomf.org/quetzal-codex.html , with sporadic publications (sporadic as in dates of publication). Notice the bottom two links to short articles mentioning “Mesoamerica” and complaining about the “Heartland Model” and “Rod Meldrum.” In the one page article “Book of Mormon Geography Remains a Hot Topic,” Louise Edward Hills is mentioned as the FIRST to place the setting solely in Mesoamerica, quoting John L. Sorenson : Hills is mentioned in more of these Queztal Codex articles. Here is Louise Edward Hills book for your perusal: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89058377359;view=1up;seq=5 Here is Oliver Cowdery writing in Letter VII that the final battles of the Jaredites and Nephites occurred at the Hill Cumorah in New York: https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-1834-1836/90 Ha ha ha! Book of Mormon Central, The Interpreter Foundation, BMAF, and the now defunct F.A.R.M.S. etc. all started by LDS Members, plagiarized a FRAUD of a geography theory from the RLDS Church. And gullible members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, bought it. That’s why images like this with Maya imagery exist in Church buildings, and sadly in Temples. Inspired by a fraud.
On one of Book of Mormon Central’s (BMC) website it states: “We hope our efforts help all of the religious organizations within the Restoration Movement who cherish the Book of Mormon.” https://bookofmormoncentral.org/content/donation-instructions [bold added] What is the Restoration Movement and the religious organizations within it? On the Hill Cumorah Expedition Team web site, it states: “The Book of Mormon is many things to many people. To some, it is the main purpose for the founding of a church in early 19th century America. To the Restoration movement and all of the many factions, the Book of Mormon is the scripture that distinguishes it from other Christian faiths. https://www.hillcumorahexpeditionteam.com/WhatisBofMormon.html [bold added] Many factions? What is the Hill Cumorah Expedition Team? “During the summer of 2001 several members of the Buckner Congregation of the Community of Christ traveled to Mexico to visit ancient ruins. They were excited to have Neil Steede as a guide and travel companion. Several sites were visited including Palenque, Cacaxtla, Cuicuilco, Comalcalco, Cholula, and Teotihuacan. While traveling the group took a detour and went to see Cerro Rabon, a mountain near Jalapa de Diaz that many Book of Mormon archaeologists have reason to believe is the Hill Cumorah where ancient records are buried.” https://www.hillcumorahexpeditionteam.com/ourbeginning.html Ah! This answers the question of the “religious organizations or the many factions within the Restoration Movement which cherish The Book of Mormon.” They would include: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (RLDS) The Community of Christ which is the new name for the RLDS Church (CofC) Restoration Branches - RLDS congregations which broke off of the RLDS Church over women given the priesthood (now that sounds familiar!) , etc: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restoration_branches Do you know of others? (Now you know one of the reasons why Pres. Nelson has asked us to refer to the complete name of the Church.) But why is Jack Welch co-founder of BMC wanting to help all of these religious organizations within the “Restoration Movement” which cherish The Book of Mormon? Because Jack Welch and BMC is perpetuating a fraud, a Book of Mormon geography fraud. This is why a CofC Congregation in Missouri has expeditions to Central America looking for the Hill Cumorah: https://www.hillcumorahexpeditionteam.com/ or http://hceti.org/ Here is a book published by a member of the then RLDS Church, now CofC, Louise E. Hills, “New Light on American Archeology,” 1924, Independence, MO, Page 131. https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89058377359;view=1up;seq=135 This is a contrived, false, fraud and a hoax created by the RLDS Chruch of a Two-Cumorah Book of Mormon geography theory NOW BEING promoted by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who own and work for: Book of Mormon Central The Interpreter Foundation FairMormon ..and others who promote the theory which places Book of Mormon geography strictly within Mesoamerica and ignore President Oliver Cowdery who wrote that it was a fact that the final Jaredite and Nephite battles occurred near the Hill Cumorah in New York. https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-1834-1836/90 Maybe you believe there are Two Hill Cumorahs, the original one in Central America somewhere. Why don’t you join this CofC Congregation which believes the same and help them discover the Hill Cumorah in Central America. As RLDS Louise E Hills wrote, Page 131: 1 am aware that Moroni wrote that he made hissynopsis of the Jaredite history "from the twenty andfour plates," but at what time he did this I do not know.It may have been done before his father's death, to bein preparation for the Lord's purpose that such"account" of the Jaredites should be known in our time.At least Oliver Cowdery's statement of the contents ofthe box, namely, that it contained a "sketch" of the twopeoples seems to make it plain that Moroni did not placethe original Jaredite record in the New York hilL Ihave no objection to that hill being also called Cumorah,with the understanding that the ancient hill Cumorahis still undiscovered, and that sometime its secrets willbe revealed and come to the knowledge of God's people. Join the expedition! 😏😄😄
