4 Versions Of First Vision - Deseret News

Recommended Posts

There is a little video as well.

 

Cool, pictures of head in hat, out front with first visions.  These are all good signs right?

 

Relatively meaningless imho.  The more the Church reveals (not to imply that they've hidden anything), the more we see that they were right all along.

Joseph Smith said it was the angel Nephi, not Moroni, who visited him.

 

See http://josephsmithpapers.org/paperSummary/history-circa-1841-draft-draft-3?p=20#!/paperSummary/history-circa-1841-draft-draft-3&p=6

 

He also refers to them as gold plates and not golden plates.  Some would view this as

a big difference.

Some would consider too much pepper in the soup as a big deal also.

Is the LDS Church's teaching that the angel Moroni visited Joseph correct when the Joseph Smith

Papers says it was Nephi instead?

 

One thing that caught my eye in the video was the part around 1:20. Joseph became frustrated with

his inability to find a church where he could find forgiveness of his sins.  I assume he was reading

the New Testament and finally came across that passage in James before he decided to go into the

grove to pray.

 

Could he really get through the four Gospel narratives and not know that finding a church has no

bearing on getting your sins forgiven?  Did he not understand the Atonement at his age?

 

Thanks,

Jim

Then you go into James' writings and they tend to indicate it does.
