The Mormon Church Admits that
the Source the Book of Mormon is...The Devil!
Up until at least 1953, the Mormon Church First Presidency published an official statement which essentially admits that Joseph Smith was given the Book of Mormon by a demon. (Joseph Smith was the founder of Mormonism) The statement was published in the Explanatory Introduction to the The Doctrine and Covenants one of the Church's Standard Works of Scripture. The Doctrine and Covenants is a compilation of divine revelations supposedly given to Joseph Smith.
The Explanatory Introduction states that Joseph Smith was shown, by an angel named Moroni, gold plates of ancient origin. These plates, when translated by Joseph Smith "through the gift and power of God," were published as the Book of Mormon.
But who was this "angel Moroni" who led Smith to the plates? What was his nature? The Explanatory Introduction tells us very specifically Morni was an angel of light! Here is the quotation:
Why would the Mormon First Presidency use this term "angel of light"?
Did they know what they were saying? They must have because Mormon Apostle Bruce R. McConkie certainly did. McConkie wrote the widely read book, Mormon Doctrine, which has been printed by Bookcraft Press in Salt Lake City since the 1950's. In that book McConkie references the term "Angel of Light" with two words-SEE DEVIL!
What does the Bible say about an angel of light?
|For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. ( 2Cor. 11:13-14 )
What does the Bible say about angels delivering messages?
|I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
