long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Palmyra - Oliver Cowdery Memorial

One of the displays at the
Oliver Cowdery Memorial, Palmyra, NY
We just returned from Palmyra, NY. My next- door neighbor told me a lot of people stop at the Oliver Cowdery Memorial. We keep running out of handouts, too.

Fortunately, local Church memberskeep it well stocked.

All of this means a lot of people are learning about Letter VII and what the prophets have taught about Cumorah.

Right now, visitors to Church history sites in New York are inundated with images of Mesoamerica.

They never learn what the prophets have taught about the Hill Cumorah--except at the Oliver Cowdery Memorial.

Someday, hopefully in the near future, people who visit the Hill Cumorah Visitors Center will actually learn what the prophets have taught about the Hill Cumorah.

I have a lot of meetings and backed-up work so I don't plan to post anything else this week, but as a reminder, I'm speaking at the conference this Friday and Saturday.

They've asked me to do Q&A during lunchtime, so this is your chance to ask any questions you'd like.


My topics will be:

What You Need to Know about the Church's New Saints Book.


New Insights on the Translation of the Book of Mormon.
