“I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam... Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it.
History of the Church, 6:408–409.
"Some of these associates alleged that Smith tried to marry their wives. About eight of Smith's wives were also married to other men (four were Mormon men in good standing, who in a few cases acted as a witness in Smith's marriage to his wife) at the time they married Smith. Typically, these women continued to live with their first husband, not Smith. Some accounts say Smith may have had sexual relations with one wife, who later in her life stated that he fathered children by one or two of his wives, although the reliability of these sources is disputed."
This is a drop in the bucket of the man who claimed to be superior to Jesus. However Jesus knew no sin, and his followers still worship him to this day.
Aye yai yai, the distortions of what the church was ever supposed to be, seems to know no bounds.
The going back to Adam part was weird. Its hard to even know where to begin to respond to this kind of comment. Other than to say that that guy thinks pretty highly of himself!
So did Jesus, allegedly. Well, according to the authors of the Bible, Jesus thought he was son of God. That is the ultimate in thinking pretty highly of oneself, don't you think?
believe in Jesus or not... he served the people, he encouraged them to keep living a better life to perceiver. Even though things were bad.
I tell you what... I was good at tricking these people.
