Read in January, 1991


The Book of Mormon:
How does this book make a list as a recommend?
Fiction cloaked as truth? And we wonder at our politics. The emperor is nude.
If you are looking at it for literary purpose, it had over 5000 grammatical errors. The book of Isaiah is plagiarized, right down to the italics in the King James. Yes, God must speak King James.
As for accuracy, where Isaiah is plagiarized, I am sure it is accurate. Watch for context errors. There are some serious errors though, ie: "Jesus was born in Jerusalem." ???? Try Bethlehem! For an author that was transcribing truth, this books data has no foundation. Not backed by archeology, history, or geography. Just a warm fuzzy feeling. I personally recommend Tums, a lack of truth cloaked as truth, gives me indigestion.
For those who seek truth, this one blares out its error. If you have the time to read it, and then go and research the possibility of steel existing in 400 AD in the America’s, and then twist your mind to believe that, you may be a candidate to enjoy this book.
Look to the Smithsonian to see if archeology gives any proofs to this book’s claim.
So many errors, so many things are just flat inaccurate and not possible for the date it was supposed to have happened.
For me, it is like watching a lunar landing on a television during the era of the Revolutionary War, well except that was only 200 years apart. This books errors date over millenniums, not centennials.
FYI, part of Nehemiah’s wall still stands in Jerusalem. That was over 2700 years ago.
The Western Wall of the Temple stands. 2000 years ago.
Truth has a way of standing.
The Pearl of Great Price?
Please...
The original document was an Egyptian papyri on how they buried their dead. It had nothing to do with the Book of Abraham. A complete embarrassment to the Mormon Church that had believed black people were cursed. Retracted after they found the original Papyri. The fact that they keep the book…well that speaks volumes.

Oerba Yun Fang they say that it came from Isaiah, smart one.
second of all, all the nephites had were their memories--it wasn't very far for them to claim he was born in jerusalem.
third, steel today is referred to blandly for many metals, and if you did your research you'd realize that they didn't define metals back then by their chemical elements.
and lastly (but not overall) joseph smith didn't know anything about jerusalem, so how could he have known about the wall or the fact that a decade later after lehi left that jerusalem was destroyed. God, get your facts straight.


Kelsey Simply because a book sacred to a religion is placed on this website does not give anyone the right to comment on and religiously persecute them and that book. Not only is it impossible to give an unbaised rating to a book of this nature, but it is a hate crime to so adamantly tear down a religion whenever the chance arises. Not only does it speak volumes about your intolerance to others different than yourself, but it also fails to accomplish anything of worth. Unless of course, you consider representing yourself as a prejudiced individual a worthy accomplishment.

Cherie You really don't know what a hate crime is, do you?

God knows everything. And if Joseph Smith were transcribing what GOD said, he would have no need to know where Jerusalem or Bethlehem was, now would he.
He would be merely transcribing....THINK! about that.
