The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this SPECIAL EDITION episode, I give everybody a teaser of what Patron only content. It's a simple document reading of David Whitmer's "An Address to All Believers in Christ" booklet written in 1887. There are 5 total chapters, in this first booklet, and I think the other two are about as long. This is the last episode of the year, so merry ChrismaHanukKwanzErnalia/Winter Soltice/Gregorian New Year to everybody, and I hope you'll join me in 2015 for more fun with Joe and his friends!

Ep8- D-Day David Whitmer's Grand Introduction, Hiram Page's Rise and Fall

 

   On this episode, the next heavy hitters are brought onto the scene. D-Day David Whitmer along with all the men in his family and Hiram Page, the brother in law. We start off learning about David's life before Joe, Emma, and Oliver Cowdery (Cowdung Allover) moved into the little house with the Whitmer family, in Fayette, N.Y. Then I get sidetracked chasing some scripture references in The Doctrine & Covenants (Mormon Canon). Then we find out why the history surrounding Hiram Page is so sparse in reported Mormon history, even though he was Joe's cousin, and one of the 11 witnesses to the plates. Then, I end the episode by telling you why I chose D-Day David for David Whitmer's NaMo name, and describing why I'm doing the show and who will benefit from Patronage.

On this episode, we continue to examine the recent essays released by the Mormon church on polygamy in early church practices. The first essay told us how the church arduously stopped polygamy, but didn't talk about Joseph Smith very much. Well that's what the second essay was for. The church titled it, "Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo". The church finally came out and talked about Joe's 30 to 40 wives and it is a doooozie! This episode is packed with way more information than I initially thought it would be, when I first started researching the 3000 word essay. I hope you enjoy!
