My Great Grandmother's, Grandfather's Nephew is Joseph Smith Jr, He wrote the Book of Mormon. I found many things about him and what happened to kill him. I know that people can makeup things and be careful I could be mislead. I'm thankful I bought a Computer I went to www.lds.org and researched for family history. I found that family history goes back to near 400 AD I might get a foot high stack of paper.
I found several things on the Internet about Joseph Smith Jr. and I took another look in the Doctrine and Covenants and found it contains information that support what I found on the Internet. People can lie about things, to hurt someone or coverup a lie or to coverup the hurt they caused - not for good reasons.
When I read D&C 42 I see someone that understands the concept of God being something good, that God is a concept only, some people think its a person, its a concept, a spirit that people make happen, it a spirit an action of knowing the difference between right and wrong, and a person that cares about everyone, not the supreme being - that is selfish, an action. That Joseph is Antislavery and Anticorruption, that God is a concept that builds a better world. The message to warn about adultry, stealing and killing. And that all people are created equal.
Then in D&C 131 I see something forced on someone, a scam about force polygamy on Joseph Smith Jr. that did not want any part of it because in D&C 135 I read "treacherous" because in D&C 131 it said if he did not comply he is against the law and death and hell was the punishment and put him in jail one other thing could do that, Antislavery.
People can think of right and wrong differently, some people think the right way is silly or the wrong way the best way and deception a tool. He was born Dec. 23, 1805 in Sharon, Windsor, Vermont. Thomas Jefferson was born in Albermarle County, Virginia April 13, 1743 someone gave me the idea he was born in Vermont, until I looked on the internet.
Thomas Jefferson was 33 when he drafted the Declaration of Independence 29 years before Joseph Smith Jr was born, his Father Joseph Smith was born July 12, 1771 in Topsfield, Essex, Massachusetts 5 years before. I noticed that when this country started it was Thomas Jefferson, when it was the war of the north against the south it was Jefferson Davis the President of the south. When Brigham Young went with several others after Joseph Smith Jr died and the church split into 2 forms of the church, picked Brigham Young for polygamy. That became the LDS Church and the RLDS Church the other, that later became the Community of Christ.
The church of Brigham Young that stopped doing polygamy after Brigham Young died and John Taylor took over, they outlawed polygamy. Then the church split again and a third group started and called them "the fundamental church".
I feel like I'm in middle of a deception. Joseph Smith and Joseph Smith Jr and Brigham Young are people who lived then and not now. They could answer many questions and clearup many lies.
Another strange thing that happened is bapt. of the dead, God is Spiritual, because God is everywhere where people are, aware, active spirit, that there is a difference between right and wrong and people need help that people evolve to become better when they learn. God is not a concept of, vain, silly ideas, nor polygamy, overpopulation creates hate and starvation.
Silly ideas create frustration, learning is about understanding, silly ideas have no connection to the real world, and nothing to learn to gain something. If I'm ever to learn something I must see things for what they are and understand them. The church is not a tool or the concept of God a tool to gain some form of deception.
I made the mistake that the LDS church was better than the Community of Christ Church, the one that Joseph Smith the 2nd created, that was once the RLDS Church, I understand now, I think that there is smarter people there, the spirit is there, I should see what they're like.
