THE MORMON PROPHET BOASTS AT BEING THE BEST RELIGIOUS GUIDE EVER

The Mormon Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was founded in 1830 by a man called Joseph Smith who claimed to be a prophet of God. Was he really a prophet of God? We will soon see that he wasn’t.  He was behind scriptures such as the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants.

Smith wrote, "God is in the still small voice. In all these affidavits, indictments, it is all of the devil--all corruption. Come on! ye prosecutors! ye false swearers! All hell, boil over! Ye burning mountains, roll down your lava! for I will come out on the top at last. 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. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet. You know my daily walk and conversation. I am in the bosom of a virtuous and good people. How I do love to hear the wolves howl! When they can get rid of me, the devil will also go. For the last three years I have a record of all my acts and proceedings, for I have kept several good, faithful, and efficient clerks in constant employ: they have accompanied me everywhere, and carefully kept my history, and they have written down what I have done, where I have been, and what I have said; therefore my enemies cannot charge me with any day, time, or place, but what I have written testimony to prove my actions; and my enemies cannot prove anything against me.  They have got wonderful things in the land of Ham. I think the grand jury have strained at a gnat and swallowed the camel".

Clearly he blames Jesus for losing followers and implies he is a better spiritual leader.   Jesus claimed to give the words of God as even Smith acknowledged.  This implies how strongly Smith asserted his claim to be a prophet or mouthpiece of God.  It virtually makes you think of those Mormon heretics who hold that Smith was a god in the flesh and the Holy Spirit.

Mormons hold that there are many gods and God the father being almighty is not literally true.  It means he has huge power not that he is like the versions of God which say he has complete and absolute and unlimited power.  So Smith claiming to be better than Jesus is no surprise for God and Jesus to him were two exalted superhuman men.
