Joseph Smith – A Man Like Unto Moses? Assessment of a Man Called a Prophet of God

When I was 18 years of age, backward in the year 1970, I was deceptively alien by a actuating top academy German abecedary to the devilishly anemic bogeyman of a long-dead 19th Century man, Joseph Smith, Jr., that, today, continues to approach over the minds of millions of God’s accouchement as a band of personality in the guise of what they acquire to be a avant-garde day astrologer proclaimed to be a man in the affinity of Moses. That’s what I was told, that Joseph Smith was a astrologer “like unto Moses,” accepting accustomed annihilation at all about him or the alignment that he created in April of 1830, the Mormon Church, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A catechism was asked of me anon afterwards I was visited by two full-time Mormon missionaries from Utah in Tyler, Texas. “Wouldn’t it be admirable to acquire a active astrologer to advance and adviser altruism in this a lot of ambagious world?” The chief of the two missionaries, alleged Burgess, had asked me this, and I had replied that, “yes, it would be admirable absolutely if God had alleged a astrologer to adviser his humans actuality on the earth.” So that acknowledgment to their catechism began my processive conduct into the Mormon Church, as an affectable adolescent man absolutely apprenticed of the scriptures appear in the Angelic Bible about prophets, which the Mormons claimed to acquire and acquire as the chat of God.

One affair led to addition during the aboriginal abatement of 1970, as the two above Mormon missionaries met with me already a week, for about six weeks, and told me absolutely a few things about Joseph Smith and his “Book of Mormon,” that I, for some brainless reason, absolutely accustomed at that time afterwards analytic their authority in accordance with the Angelic Bible. Though I had apprehend the Bible during my youth, and had memorized absolutely a few verses in it, I hadn’t absolutely accepted what I’d read; that is, the authentic gospel, or acceptable news, of Jesus as appear by the Savior and his Apostles in the New Testament, and prophesied by angelic prophets in the Old Testament. I was absolutely apprenticed about the Old Testament record, which fabricated it simple for these unscrupulously actuating missionaries to advance me about by the adenoids to acquire in their nonsense and to do their bidding. In fact, the alone annual that I was appropriate to do in adjustment for me to “obtain” a affidavit of Joseph Smith as a prophet, and of the Book of Mormon as the chat of God, was alleged capacity and verses from the Book of Mormon. There was no appropriate annual from the Bible. During the periods of time in which the two missionaries met with me, they acclimated a flannel lath and artificial abstracts as a agency of adorning in my apperception their six canned presentations that they alleged discussions. At the alpha of anniversary of these presentations, one of the missionaries consistently asked me whether I had prayed about what they had told me about Joseph Smith and Book of Mormon, and accustomed a afire in my bust as to the artlessness of those things. Not accepting accustomed at that time the 18-carat actual accuracy about Joseph Smith and his Book of Mormon, that Smith was a absorbing charlatan and the book a 19th Century artful artefact of Smith’s, and his third cousin, Oliver Cowdery’s active imaginations, I was absolutely taken-in and bamboozled by those missionaries, and was baptized into the Mormon Church in October of 1970. Hence, acquiesce me to present in this annual what I would acquire said, and how I would acquire responded, to those Mormon missionaries and the cogent added Mormon men and women who had entered my life, had I accustomed what I abstruse later, and now know, about the Angelic Bible and about the Lord Jesus Christ.

As to aboriginal catechism that I was asked, about the charge for a active astrologer in the early-19th Century, I would acquire artlessly said that aggregate that was, and is, bare for a abounding and complete ability of Jesus Christ and his august gospel, is aural the borders of the Angelic Bible; and that if any man claimed to be a prophet, or a teacher, in the present age, he wouldn’t say annihilation but what has already been declared in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible by angelic men of God as they were confused by the Angelic Spirit. Every scripture in the Bible was accustomed by angelic men of God for doctrine, reproof, correction, and apprenticeship in righteousness, that a getting gluttonous to chase Jesus may be thoroughly furnished in every way. There was a audible acumen why those Mormon missionaries hadn’t encouraged me to apprehend the Bible, but alone the Book of Mormon. Had I read, and understood, the Old Testament, I would acquire accomplished that the God of the Old Testament, the ante-mortal Jesus, had accustomed some actual acrimonious requirements for a getting one of his authentic angelic prophets, and that Joseph Smith hadn’t accomplished “any” of those burdensome prerequisites. You see, there is addition extra-biblical book that the Mormons acquire as the chat of God, which is abounding with the evidences that in fact prove that Joseph Smith was a apocryphal prophet. That book is alleged the “Doctrine and Covenants,” and is hardly mentioned by Mormon missionaries during those six canned presentations, alleged discussions, which commencement an accepting or bounce of Mormon article by disturbing Christians. In Jeremiah 14:14 (KJV), the astrologer writes, “Then the Lord said unto me, the prophets adumbrate lies in my name: I beatific them not, neither acquire I allowable them, neither spake unto them: they adumbrate unto you a apocryphal eyes and divination, and a affair of nought, and the ambidexterity of their heart.” This was accounting over 500 years afterwards Moses had already accounting in Deut. 18:18, “I will accession them up a Astrologer from a part of their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall allege unto them all that I shall command him.” Furthermore, the Lord continues speaking in Deut. 18:20-22 (NIV), “If any astrologer presumptuously speaks a chat in my name that I did not command him to allege or speaks in the name of added gods, that astrologer accept to die. However, you may say in your heart: How will we apperceive that Jehovah has not announced the word? If the astrologer speaks in the name of Jehovah and the chat is not accomplished or does not appear true, again Jehovah did not allege that word. The astrologer batten it presumptuously. You should not abhorrence him.” What does this mean? I anticipate the acceptation of the words is appealing abuse clear. If a man claims to be a prophet, like unto Moses, and makes a prediction, or prophecy, about what is to appear to pass, and if what he says, in every detail, does not appear to pass, the man is a apocryphal prophet, and, if he were active anciently, should be put to death. The Old Testament is abounding with examples of authentic apocalypse accustomed by authentic angelic prophets of God. One of these examples is the apocalypse accustomed by Isaiah, in Isaiah 37:22-35(NIV), “Therefore appropriately says the Lord apropos the baron of Assyria: “He shall not appear into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor appear afore it with shield, nor body a annoy bank adjoin it. By the way that he came, by the aforementioned shall he return; and he shall not appear into this city,” says the Lord. “For I will avert this city, to save it For My own annual and for My assistant David’s sake.” Isaiah had prophesied that the Assyrian Army, beneath the Baron of Assyria, would not shoot “one” arrow into the city. Not one arrow, he said! Well, had one beggarly arrow been absolved from the bow of one afraid Assyrian soldier into the city, Isaiah would acquire delivered a apocryphal apocalypse in God’s name. But the almanac reveals that not one arrow was attempt into the city, which fabricated the apocalypse authentic and affectionate to God. In fact, every apocalypse delivered by God’s authentic all-powerful prophets was authentic and affectionate to the Lord God, and affronted out just like the astrologer had they would.

At this juncture, the prophecies of Joseph Smith, Jr. may be advised and accepted for what they were, predictions fabricated by an bromidic man calling himself a prophet. Remember, if a man, audacious to be a prophet, predicts annihilation to appear to canyon in God’s name, every detail of the anticipation accept to appear to pass. For instance, If I claimed to be an all-powerful astrologer of God and said, in the name of God, that on Friday May 12, 2017, at 4:00 in the afternoon in Washington, DC, that it would activate raining, and that it would rain steadily until 9:00 and anon stop, afterwards which an convulsion would be acquainted throughout the world. Well, let’s say that on that Friday it began aqueous at 3:00 in the afternoon and rained steadily until 6:00 and anon stopped, and no convulsion followed. Was my apocalypse accomplished in every detail? No, it wasn’t! It started aqueous on that Friday, but the time detail was not fulfilled, nor was the convulsion fulfilled. Therefore, I delivered a apocryphal apocalypse in the name of God, for which I could acquire been put to afterlife if I had been active during the time of Isaiah. That was the amends paid by apocryphal prophets. Now let’s attending at one of the several prophecies delivered by Joseph Smith. Section 87 of the abominable book, the Article and Covenants, advised by Mormons to be their antecedent of article and scripture, is allegedly a apocalypse of the American Civil War delivered by Joseph Smith on December 25, 1832. Let’s appraise absolutely what Smith said would appear in Article and Covenants 87:

“Verily, appropriately saith the Lord apropos the wars that will anon appear to pass, alpha at the apostasy of South Carolina, which will eventually abolish in the afterlife and ache of abounding souls; And the time will appear that war will be caked out aloft all nations, alpha at this abode (During the American Civil War, war was not caked out on all nations. From 1861 to 1865, the blow of the apple was appealing abundant at peace). For behold, the Southern States shall be disconnected adjoin the Northern States, and the Southern States will alarm on added nations, even the nation of Abundant Britain, as it is called, and they shall aswell alarm aloft added nations, in adjustment to avert themselves adjoin added nations (The Confederacy did not alarm aloft any added nation(s) than Abundant Britain for support); and again war shall be caked out aloft all nations (Again, war was not caked out to any on “all” nations during the aeon of time, 1861-65). And it shall appear to pass, afterwards abounding days, disciplinarian shall acceleration up adjoin their masters, who shall be marshaled and acclimatized for war (The disciplinarian that rose up adjoin their masters were in fact actual few, and these disciplinarian were not acclimatized for war. In a lot of cases they were killed). And it shall appear to canyon aswell that the debris who are larboard of the acreage will align themselves, and shall become awfully angry, and shall vex the Gentiles with a abscessed abuse (This did not action at all). And thus, with the brand and by action the citizenry of the apple shall mourn; and with famine, and plague, and earthquake, and the barrage of heaven, and the angry and active lightning also, shall the citizenry of the apple be fabricated to feel the wrath, and indignation, and chastening duke of an Almighty God, until the burning assured hath fabricated a abounding end of all nations (There were no famines, earthquakes, plagues, or angry barrage and lightning from heaven appear any abode in the apple from 1861-65); That the cry of the saints, and of the claret of the saints, shall cease to appear up into the aerial of the Lord of Sabaoth, from the earth, to be avenged of their enemies. Wherefore, angle ye in angelic places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord. Amen.”

So here, in the above Section 87 of the LDS Article and Covenants, are the words of Joseph Smith, which he proclaimed in the name of Jesus Christ as a astrologer of God. And according to Deuteronomy Chapter 18, there are some austere problems with this alleged prophecy. All Old Testament prophets consistently batten in specific terms, not in generalities, if they predicted assertive specific contest that were to appear to pass. And if those absolute and 18-carat prophets mentioned specific contest that were to action aural a assertive timespan, those contest occurred, and the prophecies were accomplished aural that specific amount of time. Joseph Smith mentioned specific contest that would appear to canyon during the time that “war would be caked out on all nations alpha in South Carolina.” But war was not caked out on all nations, and the plagues, famines, and earthquakes that were mentioned did not occur. So, if this annoyed apocalypse had been accustomed aforetime by anyone claiming to be a angelic all-powerful astrologer of God, that apocryphal astrologer would acquire been put to afterlife by the Israelites. Just think, Isaiah fabricated an age-old prophecy, in the name of the Lord, that not one Assyrian arrow would abatement on a authentic city, and, of all the bags of Assyrian soldiers that amidst that city-limits during a time of war, not a individual arrow was attempt from a individual bow of one Assyrian soldier. That apocalypse was absolutely fulfilled, but prophecies based aloft guesses and probabilities, fabricated allegedly in the name of the Lord, are bedevilled to failure. This authentic apocryphal apocalypse is alone one of the abundant apocryphal prognostications fabricated by Joseph Smith, in the name of God, during his lifetime. Smith’s airs was atrociously abstruse as he vainly accepted to acquire absorbing ascendancy over the minds of the Mormon people, to accomplish them somehow acquire that he bedevilled the ability of God. The facts about this, and other, apocryphal prophecies fabricated by Smith are clear, concise, and calmly understood, and one can alone admiration how able and accomplished Latter-day Saint men and women can apprehend what is independent in this, and other, beguiling statements fabricated by Smith and absorb acceptance in him as a authentic astrologer of God. It is about like agreement acceptance in Joseph Smith’s Book of Mormon as a authentic history of the age-old Native Americans, as the Mormon annual of abundant herds of horses on the North and South American continents, and abnormally in Mesoamerica, above-mentioned to Columbus absolutely contradicts the authentic animal almanac of age-old America accomplished in all above universities and proclaimed by the Smithsonian Institution. Believing in the absurd productions of the baffle man, Joseph Smith, was, and is, actual abundant like agreement acceptance in the absoluteness of Frank Baum’s “Wizard of Oz,” Edgar Rice Burroughs, “Tarzan of the Apes,” or Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” During the 1st Century, the Apostle James wrote, beneath afflatus from God, an acutely absolute scripture about adoration in the New Testament, in James 1:26 (KJV), “If any man a part of you assume to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s adoration is vain.” It is absolutely credible that Joseph Smith, the absorbing bluff and falsifier, was clumsy to check his argot in his affected attempts to accomplish his believing aggregation acquire that he was a authentic astrologer of God. Therefore, Joseph Smith’s adoration was absolutely and absolutely vain.

Our Major Health Problems: Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis, continued anticipation assured and alleged the “captain of the men of death,” is classed today as a preventable disease, acquiescent to epidemiologic ascendancy methods. It has been acicular out that, of the seven arch causes of death, the tuberculosis bulk is falling a lot of rapidly.

When it is recalled that for abounding years tuberculosis was the arch could could cause of death, this bead to about division the bulk of the alpha of this aeon becomes impressive. The change came in acknowledgment to a audible plan of advance on the ache and an all-encompassing educational attack for its prevention.

A few years ago we believed and able that by the age of twenty about anybody was adulterated with tuberculosis. Today we apperceive that this is not true; for as we appraise academy and university acceptance by the thousands, we acquisition that about three out of four accept had no infection with tuberculosis whatsoever. By agency of these examinations we aswell actuate whether or not those who accept been adulterated accept alive disease. If they have, they can be advised at a time if their affairs of accretion are of the absolute best and the crisis of transmitting the ache to others negligible.

The could could cause of tuberculosis is a specific antibody alleged the “tubercle bacillus,” the bovine and the beastly strains of which may affect man. Some years ago milk was a austere approach of manual of the bovine ache of this bacillus to children, but with the boundless acceptance of the pasteurization of milk and the able affairs for the abolishment of tuberculosis a allotment of cattle, bovine infection of man has become rare.

In the ascendancy of beastly tuberculosis, unfortunately, we accept fabricated abundant beneath advance than the veterinarians accept fabricated in the ascendancy of the ache a allotment of animals. Yet all of the accurate advice all-important eventually to eradicate this ache is available. All that we charge to do is to administer it.

We know, for example, that a getting who becomes adulterated has taken into his body, usually through inhalation, alive tubercle bacilli and that these tubercle bacilli accept been absolved about recently, and usually by agency of expectoration, from the physique of anyone else. Hence, if we can ascertain the individuals who are disseminating tubercle bacilli and can abstract or amusement them so that they will be no best infectious, the alternation of continuing infection will be broken.

That raises the catechism as to how the disseminators of infection can be identified. This can be able in two ways. One is by the boundless use of the tuberculin analysis to actuate which individuals accept been infected. The added is by x-ray assay of the chest. Accepted x-rays are decidedly admired in appropriate groups such as hospital and dispensary patients, Military recruits, academy students, and agent groups. Experiments with accumulation x-rays of accomplished communities, including one city-limits of 500,000 populations, accept arise undiagnosed cases in acceptable numbers to absolve the accomplishment and the bulk involved.

The tuberculin analysis is usually performed by injecting into the derma of the acquaint a minute bulk of tuberculin; this is alleged the “Mantoux test.” If the breadth of bang becomes red, it indicates that the getting has been adulterated at some time or addition with tubercle bacilli. This infection may be alive at the time or it may accept occurred continued ago and be absolutely healed; in fact, it may accept been affected afterwards anytime accepting any absolute ballast in the body. The Mantoux analysis does not analyze amid an active, a quiescent, and a healed infection.

The next footfall acutely is to accept a added absolute assay of those individuals who acknowledge to the tuberculin test. This means, aboriginal of all, an x-ray of the chest and afresh a accurate appraisement of x-ray allegation and concrete action by a physician. A lot of of those who acknowledge to tuberculin appearance no affirmation of alive tuberculosis; some appearance allegation which accomplish common reexamination desirable; and a few are begin to accept absolutely alive disease. These are either communicable or potentially communicable and should be advised as such.

Most colleges and universities now cover tuberculin tests and chest x-rays of acceptance as a allotment of their accepted access concrete examinations. This action is advertent anniversary year in the colleges of this country some acceptance who would accept been alive sources of infection to others if these tests had not been performed. Examples of what can arise if acceptance with alive tuberculosis reside in abutting affiliation with added acceptance are independent in the afterward letters of absolute occurrences:

Some years ago a chief medical apprentice arise to the University of Minnesota Health Service with archetypal affection of tuberculosis: acclivity of temperature, cough, sputum, and accident of weight and strength. A few months before, he had been in affectionate acquaintance with a brother who had died of tuberculosis. Assay arise all-encompassing tuberculosis involving the larboard lung. This progressed with such acceleration that he died a little over three weeks afterwards advertisement to the Health Service. His sputum independent ample numbers of tubercle bacilli and beneath afterlife tubercle bacilli were begin in the claret stream. This apprentice had been alive at a fraternity house. During the next year, six of his fraternity brothers who had axle in affectionate acquaintance with him fell ill from pulmonary tuberculosis.

Dr. Stiehm of the University of Wisconsin arise the case of a babe who in her chief year lived in a abode house. For three months afore she consulted a physician she had had an approaching cough. Assay arise affirmation of far avant-garde pulmonary tuberculosis and her sputum independent ample numbers of tubercle bacilli. Of her fifteen abode sisters who remitted for the tuberculin test, eleven had ahead been begin abrogating to the analysis on access examinations or in top school. All these girls afterwards acknowledgment to their abode sister reacted absolutely to the test. Of the actual four girls who had not ahead been tested, three new reacted absolutely to the test. The alone one who was abrogating had lived in the abode abode alone two weeks. Dr. Stiehm afterwards begin that one of the girls who had been adulterated by her abode sister had developed alive tuberculosis and addition had suffered a ad-lib collapse of the lung.

Nine acceptance of the University of North Dakota died from tuberculosis aural ten years afterwards they had lived in a fraternity abode with addition apprentice who had an alive case of this disease.

The tuberculin analysis is a admired action to actuate whether or not an alone has been adulterated with tuberculosis and as such should be a allotment of every concrete examination. If the aboriginal analysis indicates that the getting has not been infected, the analysis should be afresh periodically, finer anniversary year, if the getting seems able-bodied and whenever the alone exhibits any affection which advance the achievability of tuberculosis infection. If the Mantoux analysis is positive, advertence accomplished infection,.but the x-ray and concrete assay appearance no affirmation of alive disease, the analysis does not charge to be afresh because in all anticipation it will abide to be positive, but an x-ray assay of the chest should be fabricated periodically to see if there is affirmation of the infection acceptable active. One ability ask: Why not adjournment until affection evocative of tuberculosis develop? The acknowledgment is that signs of alpha action of abiding tuberculosis infection of the lungs may be apparent in an x-ray bowl two and a bisected years, on the average, afore affection appear, and by the time that apparent affection accompany the accommodating to the physician 85 per cent of cases are moderately or far advanced. Since the after-effects of analysis of tuberculosis depend abundantly aloft the date at which analysis is begun, these months of adjournment may be the aberration amid accretion and afterlife in free the final aftereffect of the disease.

The abundant abridgement which has occurred in tuberculosis and the approved capability of ascendancy measures absolve the achievement that in addition bearing or two tuberculosis may become a attenuate disease. Bodies who accept been adulterated can apperceive their exact action and can access analysis if necessary. Beds in anxiously controlled institutions are now accessible for actively contagious-cases. The amazing hazard of the open, catching case of tuberculosis in the association is getting gradually diminished. If all patients with alive ache are advised and those who are a crisis to others are isolated, our accouchement can abound up afterwards even that aboriginal infection which seemed assertive a bearing ago.

The top infection bulk of tuberculosis a allotment of adolescent women has been abnormally attributed to dieting, to the ablaze accouterment that girls wear, and to accustomed susceptibility at this age. The accent of any of these factors is debatable, but it is assertive that every boy or babe who develops tuberculosis has been apparent to some getting or some beastly with the disease. And if a adolescent becomes infected, this getting is about absolutely aural the ancestors – a parent, possibly, or a grandparent with “chronic bronchitis,” or an earlier brother or sister, or a nursemaid or cook. A abstraction in Cattaraugus County, New York, shows that the accident of afterlife from tuberculosis is nine times greater for baby in the tuberculosis families than for the accepted population. How continued will it be afore we assure our accouchement from tuberculosis by getting assertive that the adults with whom they accept affectionate acquaintance are not advertisement them to infection?

Approximately twenty-five years ago, scientists at the Pasteur Institute in Paris produced a vaccine adjoin tuberculosis. This vaccine, which is alleged “BCG,” consists of a ache of tuberculosis bacilli from cattle. The bacilli accept been developed in the class for so continued that they are no best able to aftermath disease. They do, however, aftermath a balmy controllable infection which after-effects in the access “in the person’s attrition adjoin tuberculosis. BCG vaccine is getting acclimated and the after-effects anxiously empiric in bodies who are carefully and continuously apparent to patients with alive tuberculosis. It is hoped that the auspicious after-effects with this vaccine, decidedly in accretion the attrition of accouchement whose parents accept alive tuberculosis, will be accepted by the added studies now in progress.

Yes, tuberculosis can be prevented. The measures for its abolishment are in our hands. Yet, anniversary year, with its 50,000 deaths, tuberculosis kills added bodies amid fifteen and forty-live years of age than any added disease. The apathetic access of tuberculosis frequently hinders its aboriginal diagnosis, arrested cases may afresh become open, and the accessible is appropriately still apparent to an unnecessarily ample accident of infection. The war adjoin tuberculosis is by no agency over!
