The Bible is holy and should not be changed. What Joseph Smith did to the Book of Revelation is so terrible. He tarnished God's Word, which is sad. How can Mormons think this is right? For them to call this translation the inspired Bible version is blasphemy. Speaking of this, it is written. "About a year later, during the summer of 1830, Joseph and Oliver received by revelation an account of visions experienced by Moses but not found in the Bible. This revelation marked the beginning of Joseph Smith’s efforts to prepare an inspired revision or translation of the Bible." (Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible) Fortunately, we know as Christians that these changes to the KJV Bible are wrong. The Bible declares, "every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." And speaking of not changing the Book of revelation, it is written, "for I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18,19)

I wrote this book because I love Mormons. I do not want them to be deceived any longer. My heart cries out to them in prayer, this very hour. I pray that their hearts will be opened to the truth of God, this day. With much love, I will now shed light on Joseph Smith’s crime, in altering God’s Word. Let’s take a look at the crime itself. Joseph Smith decided that he had a need to re-translate the Bible from the King James Version (KJV). He didn't do this using the Aramaic, Greek or Hebrew language. Because he thought he knew better than the KJV translators, he rewrote it. That is why it is called the Joseph Smith Translation (JST). According to byu.edu, he “made a “new translation” of the Bible, using the text of the King James Version (KJV).” According to that same webpage, 3,410 verses were changed. The JST “consists of additions, deletions, rearrangements, and other alterations that cause it to vary not only from the KJV but from other biblical texts.” (Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible (JST)) Would a prophet of God change, remove or add to God’s Word? The answer is No! This really upsets me and should upset any Christian who believes in the purity of God’s Word. Can you believe Joseph Smith could do such a thing? God’s wrath will forever be upon him for what he has done. The Bible has warnings for anybody doing such things to God’s Word. To such people, they are “found a liar” in God’s sight. “God shall take away his part out of the book of life.” (Revelation 22:19)

Because of what Joseph Smith has done to the King James Bible, millions of Mormons are now deceived. They now believe in false doctrines that come from this man-made translation. Mormons now believe that the Bible is corrupted and that Joseph’s re-translation of the King James Version Bible was necessary. To set the record straight, this is not a translation but an alteration of God’s Holy Word. A prophet of God would never do this. Only Satan would orchestrate such an immoral act. This has caused so many innocent people to go astray. Because of this, Mormon’s now believe that “the Bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly”. This is according to their eighth article of faith. Mormons use the KJV Bible but not alone. To make sure that the verses make sense, the footnotes for different verses refer back to the JST translation. If you are in this church, get out immediately. Joseph Smith is not in heaven, nor shall he ever be. His judgement has already been set. He will forever burn in hell because of what he has done. Don’t join him. With this knowledge comes a greater judgment. By continuing to go to the LDS church, you are not saved but on a broad road to destruction. You have a choice to leave the church now and come to Christ, before time is up. You could die tomorrow. Repent and come to Jesus! Amen.
