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.

Disagreeing better, more podcasts, etc.

On the nomorecontention blog, I discussed the Disagree Better initiative and how it could apply within the Restoration.



Two outstanding podcasts were released recently.

David Hocking discussed his Annotated Book of Mormon and other annotated books on Mormon Book Reviews.


David's book series is unique and well worth studying by Latter-day Saints and others. If you watch the podcast, you'll see all the features he has packed into the scriptures. 


Peter Santenello is a popular YouTuber (2.58 million subscribers) who makes "videos showing you a world that the media fails to capture." He recently visited Utah with Brock, a Latter-day Saint who explained the Restoration clearly and with charity and understanding.


The video has over 500,000 views in 3 days. 


In 2024, Come Follow Me focuses on the Book of Mormon. We will hear lots of M2C and SITH from certain scholars. Both critics and certain LDS scholars claim that Joseph Smith believed in a hemispheric model for the setting of the Book of Mormon. 

I posted a comment on that on the Letter VII blog, here:
