148. Dealing with Sources in History
Sep 12th, 2015 by mormonmisc at 10:07 pm

Ezra Booth, one of the earliest converts soon left and wrote 9 letters which were published in the Ohio Star newspaper from Oct 13-Dec 8, 1831. He addressed many topics claiming accurate accounts, events and beliefs of Mormonism. Much is contrary from Mormon sources. I addressed several of his claims which probably all historians would obviously conclude false. 

  • Joseph Smith claimed all authority and live beyond any gospel laws and principles
    • Commit adultery
    • Kill the husband 
    • Common consent
    • Church covenants
I also addressed a claim by Lee Baker 2 weeks ago, that the First Presidency and the Twelve made a false statement about Joseph Smith in the 2008  2009 Priesthood and Relief Society Manual. 
It is difficult on many topics to sort out divergence sources to decide which to accept.
