Did Ethan Smith's View of the Hebrews furnish structural material for Joseph Smith's Book of Mormon? It has been pointed out in these pages that there are many things in the former book that might well have suggested many major things in the other.Not a few things merely, one or two, or half dozen, but many; and it is this fact of many things of similarity and the cumulative force of them that makes them so serious a menace to Joseph Smith's story of the Book of Mormon's originMore B. Roberts quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[T]he kingdom of God... is to be a political institution that shall hold sway over all the earth; to which all other governments will be subordinate and by which they will be dominated.More B. Roberts quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
First, we believe that God is a being with a body in form like man's; that he possesses body, parts and passions; that in a word, God is an exalted, perfected man. Secondly, we believe in a plurality of Gods. Third, we believe that somewhere and some time in the ages to come, through development, through enlargement, through purification until perfection is attained, man at last may become like God - a God.More B. Roberts quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Seer Stone referred to here was a chocolate-colored, somewhat egg-shaped stone which the Prophet found while digging a well in company with his brother Hyrum,... It possessed the qualities of Urim & Thummim, since by means of it - as described above - as well by means of the Interpreters found with the Nephite record, Joseph was able to translate the characters engraven on the plates.More B. Roberts quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A temple, first of all, is a place of
prayer; and prayer is communion with God. It is the 'infinite in man
seeking the infinite in God.' Where they find each other, there is holy
sanctuary--a temple.More B. Roberts quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
