    73. Polygamy: Joseph Smith's Letter of Explanation

    A letter of Joseph Smith on polygamy is well-known to many LDS as an article on "Happiness." It was written such that its meaning would be hidden to those who do not know its historical context.

    Its history includes a stir among LDS in Nauvoo in 1842, significant confrontations, exchanges in the newspapers, denials, defections and information on the early, private promulgation of polygamy. 


    Its content gives important insight into Joseph Smith's views and even includes a revelation. Further, it is an excellent example of a literary form which clearly teaches an impressive message on the surface, but then buried beneath the surface is a deeper message comparable to occasions when Jesus taught something seemingly simple but then invited his disciples to think deeper with the phrase "he that hath ears to hear, let him hear." 

     I have placed the letter in a parallel column with D&C 132. send your request to and I will send it to you by email. Those interested, send me your request to this email, mormontalkingpoints@gmail.com

      Mormon Doctrine: Mandatory and Forbidden

      For various reasons many insist that there is much mandatory doctrine required of Mormons and much forbidden doctrine. Drawing from many sources and such enlightening examples as the Adam God theory and Polygamy, I demonstrate that, from its beginning, the LDS Church has had very little official doctrine and almost no mandatory or forbidden doctrine.
