There are over thirty chapters in the Bible that Joseph Smith copied and pasted into the Book of Mormon. At the same time, many of these verses were removed and changed in so many ways. Now, concerning the book of Matthew, we have a huge issue to address, since it was part of this mess. For one, in Matthew, chapter 7, is written by way of Matthew. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all wrote differently because of their writing styles. This didn’t stop Joseph Smith from making people believe that Nephi wrote in the exact same way as Matthew. He wrote, “24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” (Matthew 7:24-29)
What you see in bold is what is left out of the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith knew that people in his fictional book were not scribes, so verse 29 was removed. As for verse 28, it is odd that it was left out since people would also be astonished by Jesus’s doctrine. The truth is, Joseph Smith was out of his mind wrong when he wrote the Book of Mormon. As for this chapter in 3 Nephi, it makes people not read the same verses in the Bible. It is written, “24 Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock — 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand — 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” (3 Nephi 14:24-27) I do advise everyone to stop reading the Book of Mormon immediately, as well as burning it. You will feel many of life’s burdens be lifted when you either shred the book or burn it. The Mormon church is of the devil and the way out is by denying your false beliefs and going all in to follow Jesus. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I love Your ways and despise what is evil. This is all because You have taken away my heart of stone and replaced it with a heart that burns for You. There is nothing else I’d rather do than serve You and bring people to You for salvation. Even the Mormons, who see themselves as very religious people, are so far from You and have a great need to be saved. They may not think this, as they feel just fine in their current belief system and lifestyle. It is comfortable for them and to make a disruption with their family and friends would cause contention, which they avoid at all costs. Therefore, I am amazed at all the people who leave Mormonism for Your sake. They are making a huge leap of faith, even though life may not be as easy from there on out. The same thing happened to me when I found out that the LDS church was false back in 2012. In the walk-in closet of my house, it came to me like a bolt of lightning that I was in a cult. I could not deny it any longer and had to leave it immediately. Thankfully, You put in my flesh a heart that longs to do Your will, so this choice to follow You came quickly. To live for You is gain, but to live apart from You is misery. Dissension did arise with my family and friends. People were disappointed in my decision, but I know it was for You. I love You, more than anything, God. Amen.
