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.

Joseph and Emma house
Today we visited the restored house in Pennsylvania where Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. It is a fantastic restoration.
They also included a replica of the table where Joseph and Oliver Cowdery worked on the translation. All very well done.
We also visited the Susquehanna River site where Joseph and Oliver baptized one another. Of course, they did the baptism in the spring when the river was much deeper than it is in August, as this photo shows.
