However, the Book of the Law of the Lord bears little resemblance to the material described in The Book of Mormon as being engraved on the Plates of Laban. Rather, Strang's book comprises a rather elaborate constitution for a Mormon kingdom, in which the Prophet-leader of the Latter Day Saint church equally rules as king over God's kingdom on earth. It also contains various other revelations and teachings unique to Strang
What interests me is the question of how people who believe in God could lie about such things.
Also interesting to me is the fact that Strang died three years before Darwin wrote his "Origin of Species," at a time when it would seem to me to have been much harder not to believe in God than it is today (and the Donattion of Constantine was centuries before Strang.)
Any thoughts on how people who believe in God are able to justify lying for Him (or how they could possibly believe He needs them to)?
