Introduction to a multi-part series where we look at the short history of what is known as "The Restoration". Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon from plates that were revealed to him by an angel. Shortly after completing the translation he organized a church. Revelations from God were given through him and recorded and published in various forms and versions. He wrote The Book of Abraham, built Temples, brought forth the modern concept of Zion, a holy city, to be established in Independence, MO, produced a new version of the King James Version of the Bible with additions and corrections, as inspired by God, among other things. It is a colorful history tied to polygamy, murder, division, prophecy, and a restored authoritative priesthood. We will look at some things that are not talked about openly, question honestly, and discuss what happened in the last 200 years with this young movement.
As mentioned in this episode, here is a link to the video that discusses source material and how to tell if what you are being told is reliable or not. When examining history this is so important, not only what is being said but the quality of the information. How valid is it? #Hemlockknots.
