After a review of the scriptural definitions of “gospel” and “church”, we review Elder Poelman’s talk from October 1984 General Conference which was re-recorded after-the-fact to completely change the message of his talk.

Between 1830 and 1833, Joseph worked on revisions to the Bible. Known as the Joseph Smith Translation or Inspired Version of the Bible, this effort was a commandment from the Lord and something that is mentioned many times in the Doctrine and Covenants. Yet despite the importance both the Lord and Joseph placed on this work, it was never published during his lifetime, nor was it ever fully embraced by the Salt Lake church. This episode reviews the history and shares some of the key changes that point us toward to the true doctrine of Christ.

The official story of the church in Missouri casts the members of the church as innocent victims of mob violence. While there were atrocities like Haun’s Mill committed against the Mormons, the official history fails to include the atrocities committed by the Mormons against the Missourians that precipitated responses like Haun’s Mill. This week’s episode recounts some of these forgotten facts that show just how un-Christian the church was acting in 1838.

The LDS Church teaches that William Law was a disgruntled, excommunicated apostate who wanted to destroy the Church when he published “vicious lies” in the Nauvoo Expositor. Strangely enough, these “vicious lies” are never examined in Church educational material. This episode gives some of the happenings leading up to the publishing of the Nauvoo Expositor and reviews the claims therein and compares them against history and scripture.

Continuing last week’s discussion, we share a few more scriptures as well as blessings and other contemporaneous statements that demonstrate that it was a common belief back in the time of Joseph that Joseph and the other servants would return to finish their labors. For some reason that belief has been lost, but it was common back then.
