The words of a book that comes forth in the last days, the learned that say that they can’t read it, a people that draws near unto the Lord with their mouth but their hearts are far from him, churches that preach vain and foolish doctrines while building fine sanctuaries, and people who put their trust in man are just some of the topics in these two chapters.

This week the world learned about Ensign Peak Advisors, a financial holding company owned by the LDS Church alleged to have over $100 billion in assets. While not denying the facts, the LDS Church’s public statement asserts that the news reports have a narrow perspective and that the actions of Ensign Peak Advisors are based on a “sound financial and doctrinal principle taught by the Savior in the Parable of the Talents”. In this episode, we measure the actions and statements of the LDS Church against the scriptures they claim to be the revealed mind and will of God to his church in these days.

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.
