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.

The scriptures talk about servants in the last days that will gather Zion and prepare for the return of Christ. Many often speculate on the identity of these servants. Speculation, however, is unnecessary. The Doctrine and Covenants make it clear who these servants are. The only question is, do we believe the promises in the Doctrine and Covenants?

The three degrees of glory is a central tenet in the LDS Church, and shapes many aspects of LDS doctrine. But how closely does the theology we are taught actually agree with the scriptures upon which it is supposedly based? This week we search the scriptures to understand what they actually say about the celestial and terrestrial categories of people. Prepare to have your traditions challenged by scripture.

When we have an incorrect understanding of one aspect of the gospel, it can prevent us from correctly understanding other aspects of the gospel. We need to correct our initial misunderstandings before we can successfully move forward. The scriptures talk about our bodies being restored, and our bodies being resurrected, and we incorrectly assume those are the same thing. In this episode, we focus in on what the prophets mean when they talk about this restoration, and begin to explain the impact that has on the plan of salvation as we know it.
