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.

2023 will be amazing

Lots of cool things underway that we'll discuss as the year unfolds. Here are a few things we'll consider.

I posted the resolutions of Jonathan Edwards here:

During the year we'll learn a lot more about Jonathan Edwards and Joseph Smith.


Book of Mormon Central may finally be transitioning away from their ridiculous M2C logo. The new umbrella is Scripture Central, which you can see here: https://scripturecentral.org/

The new logo and approach looks promising. We'll see how long they retain the M2C logo for Book of Mormon and Pearl of Great Price sections, though.

We'll comment on developments here: https://scripturecentralamerica.blogspot.com/

Not only is the M2C logo ridiculous for showing a Mayan glyph, but it doesn't include English, which is the original language of the Doctrine and Covenants, as well as the only extant original versions of the Book of Mormon and Pearl of Great Price. 

We'll be discussing more about Cumorah this year, leading up to the 200th anniversary of Moroni's first visit. Some fun graphics (click to enlarge):
