125: Universalism: thoughts of William Barclay


Guest Host: Don Ormsby, hosting this night (2015-02-15) Van Hale.

Don quoted from William Barclay, a Presbyterian, a well-know New Testament scholar, New Testament translator, author of a 20 volume New Testament commentary and numerous historical and doctrinal books. His view on Universalism (that ultimately almost, or all, of the human family will find its way into God's kingdom) is closer to Joseph Smith's view than that of Calvin. The following are some of the topics from several of the callers:
  • Atheist claims that the LDS Church has been dramatically altered from its original foundation
  • One Claims no evidence that anyone has seen the Golden Plates
  • Comments on John Dehlin's being disfellowshipped
  • This claim that LDS are not to quote the past Prophets
  • A non-Mormon told of his study with the Book of Mormon it leads one to pursue the life and teachings of Jesus
  • Another claims that Elder McConkie placed homosexuality close to murder; that Jesus placed one who should lust in his heart, is an adulterer, but that Pres. Hinckley's position was a far different point of view.

124. Joseph Smith's Plan: Sources from 1828-6 April 1830-1


When Joseph was 22 & 23 years old, we have some documents produced from 1828 to 1830, from which we encounter many aspects of his plan. Following are several points discussed:

  • One purpose of the Book of Mormon
  • The failure of the first 116 pages
  • What happened
  • Could Joseph fail?
  • Could he succeed?
  • What was a part of his Plan beyond the Book of Mormon?
  • Who would be involved in the project?
  • Could the project succeed after Martin Harris' blunder?
  • It is most remarkable to consider many of Joseph's initial aspects of the Plan
I will pursue this in an upcoming program.
