"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Truth

In my previous entry I talked about Parley P. Pratt's quest for the truth. People may question the veracity of the claim that the Book of Mormon is truth and not made up. That is up to each person to find out for themselves. The Book of Mormon contains a promise toward the end of the book. Ask God. Find out for your selves. Moroni 10:3-5
3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
Joseph Smith said that he had translated the book from ancient gold plates by way of direction from above. Either Joseph's claim is true or it is not. There is only one way to find out.

It's funny how every religion I have come in contact with talks about THEIR truth. What truth may be to one, may be a different turth to another...so who's truth is the right truth?

In a court of law what is the definition of truth. I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God.

That is the truth I am talking about.

If I were to say that I had seen a ghost (or rather a spirit) there would be people who would doubt the veracity of that statement. But I can attest that I have indeed seen one.

Shortly after her passing, I saw my husband's older sister. I saw her and knew who she was.

No amount of persuasion can convince me otherwise. And that's the truth!

So, with Joseph...did he see God or didn't he?

I am not talking about doctinal issues here. I am talking about whether something really happened or not.
