Re: Joseph Smith's Denial of the Peace Maker pamphlet

Perhaps he was seeking to distance himself from scrutiny of his extra curricular activities? Smith was known to deny things that were subsequently demonstrated to be correct. For instance: What a thing it is for a man to be accused of committing adultery, and having seven wives, when I can only find...

Re: 906 million dollars

It's worth noting that the $906 million in the headline is not a cash sum. Here is how the church articulates it: $906 million was expended to help those in need through: ■ FAST-OFFERING ASSISTANCE, which provides temporary financial help to those in need. ■ BISHOPS’ ORDERS FOR GOODS, including givi...

Re: LDS Scout Leader charged with several counts of criminal sexual conduct.

The Church still refuses to instigate background checks. I can think of two possible reasons for this: 1. The general CoJCoLDS principle that because the church is guided by living prophets, it is extremely dangerous to change any of its long-term practices as a result of criticism, since that migh...

Re: LDS Scout Leader charged with several counts of criminal sexual conduct.

I see. Let’s get back to the topic then. …You’ve got Church members being too trusting of others. In any other life setting a Mormon parent wouldn’t allow the kind of access to their children that they give to other church members. You’ve also got the institution not doing all that it could do, sim...

Re: Peterson advocates for an unauthorised version of the Book of Mormon to be used at Church

Id like to know what significant changes are in this version. It would probably be so few as to be able to fit into a Peterson blog entry.

Peterson advocates for an unauthorised version of the Book of Mormon to be used at Church

I’m pleased to mention here that tomorrow, 10 May 2022, is the date for which Yale University Press has scheduled the release of the second edition of The Book of Mormon: The Earliest Text. Edited by my longtime friend and colleague Royal Skousen, the new book will appear as a trade paperback. Afte...
