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.

Two more podcasts on manipulating history

Yesterday two new podcasts were released on similar, but different, topics. Both interviews were in the pursuit of clarity, charity and understanding.

As usual, critics completely miss the point because they see everything through their bias confirmation filters. They resist clarity most of all.

Anyone who watches the podcasts can see that I'm not saying anything that's not obvious to anyone who reads the Gospel Topics Essay or the Liahona

I'm completely fine with different interpretations of historical documents and events. Everyone should be happy to understand multiple working hypotheses. What I object to is the censorship omission of what Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery explicitly taught and published about the translation. 

Ward Radio released my interview about the Gospel Topics Essay on Translation. 



The Last Dispensation released a second interview about the March Liahona article by Gerrit Dirkmaat.


We discussed the in-depth problem with the article on this blog last week. I'll post more on that article later this week.

Stay tuned.
