"HOW SHALL WE THEN LIVE?" Francis Schaeffer

Sunday, May 08, 2005

While surfing the internet at 5 a.m. Sunday morning I found this site. Below is just a couple of paragraphs. If you're interested in challenges facing the Mormons attempting to rely on Joseph Smith, you'll read it here.

"One by one, virtually every Mormon belief about the Book of Abraham once considered essential to its support and regarded as faith promoting, has been shattered by the facts.
"Not one trace of reliable evidence has appeared that would support the LDS view of the Book of Abraham as an authentic scripture, while an enormous amount of evidence is available to show that it is a man-made production of the nineteenth century, created by Joseph Smith to support his claim among his people to be a 'prophet, seer, and revelator.'... When an individual fails to respond openly and honestly to such a problem it only passes the problem--and the pain of dealing with it--to someone else, multiplying ignorance and hurt in the process....
"So much potential pain to loved ones and future generations could be avoided! How? By placing truth ahead of convenience, by being honest with ourselves and with others.
"The question of meeting challenges to our faith really does matter, because truth matters. The Bible gives us the promise that 'the truth shall make you free' (John 8:32)--and that includes being free from delusion." (By His Own Hand Upon Papyrus, pages 169, 171, 175, 181)

JB here: ANY religion founded by 1 man is guaranteed to be false. You can take it to 'Vegas and bet the house on it.
