Why did James Talmage teach that hell is not eternal when the Book of Mormon teaches eternal hell? ( Articles of Faith, Twelfth Edition, p. 61;2 Nephi 28:22; Alma 34: 32-35; and Alma 42:14)

Gerald and Sandra Tanner counted 3,913(non punctuation) changes in the The Book of Mormon. Examples are: 1 Nephi 11:21; 19:20; 20:1 and Alma 29:4. Compare these with the original Book of Mormon. If the Book of Mormon is true, why did the LDS church make these changes?

If 1 John 1:9 says the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin, why does the Journal of Discourses Vol. 3 page 247 teach otherwise?

If the Book of Mormon is true, why do Indians fail to turn white when they become Mormons? (2 Nephi 30:6 1980 edition)

According to History of the Church Vol. 6 p. 617-618 and Vol. 7 102-103, Joseph Smith was killed in a blazing gun fight. Why does the LDS church consider him a martyr?

Why was the LDS president Gordon B. Hinkley "victimized" by Mark Hofmanns's forgeries for three years? Might the LDS leaders also be mistaken where their teachings contradict the Bible?

In 1835 Joseph Smith prophesied the coming of the Lord within 56 years. (History of the Church Vol. 2 page 182) Why didn't this prophesy come to pass?

In the Doctrines and Covenants 84:1-5 is a prophesy of Joseph Smith declaring that a temple would be reared in Independence, Missouri "in this generation." If Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, why wasn't this prophesy fulfilled?


The Bible says; "But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speakth in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." (Deuteronmy 18: 20-22)
