    “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” (History of the Church, 4:461.)
    The errors of the book of mormon.

    "In 1837 Joseph Smith made several editorial changes in the Book of Mormon. Many are relatively innocuous, but one of them is much more substantial. In the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon, the verse we know as 1 Nephi 11:18 reads:

    And he said unto me: Behold, the virgin whom thou seest is the mother of God, after the manner of the flesh.

    For the 1837 edition, Joseph inserted "the Son of," so that the verse has read ever since:

      Are you an ex-Mormon by chance? You appear to be on a quest here.

          I kind of just feel sorry for you that you are so bitter toward Mormons. Learn to let go. Obsessions aren't healthy.

            No you don't have to feel sorry for me. This is my passion to expose all of what i have learned, to share what was hidden from me.
            Like i said, it's a passion not an obsession.
            It's like someone that was fed lies all of their lives and has seen people tricked and manipulated. wouldn't you want people to warn you of these things?
            What i share is not what i have made up. It is the true doctrine of the LDS.
