MG-28 - Did Joseph Smith Translate Fraudulent Plates?

In History of the Church, volume 5, page 372, we read about six small bell-shaped plates, unearthed in Kinderhook, Illinois with inscriptions on them. When these plates were presented to Joseph Smith in 1843, he said, “I have translated a portion of them, and find they contain the history of the person with whom they were found. He was a descendant of Ham, through the loins of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and that he received his kingdom from the Ruler of heaven and earth.”

Later, two individuals, W.P. Harris and Wilbur Fugate, admitted their involvement in the conspiracy of forging these bogus plates to test Joseph Smith’s translation abilities. Then, in the August 1981 edition of the LDS magazine titled the Ensign, the Mormon Church admitted that recent metallurgy performed on one of the plates shows that the “Kinderhook Plates Brought to Joseph Smith Appear to Be a Nineteenth-Century Hoax.”

While Joseph Smith did not translate more than this, no one can deny that he was impressed with them and thought they were authentic. Although this fact should raise doubt as to Joseph Smith’s translation abilities, even more troubling is the Book of Abraham that Joseph Smith translated from fragments of an Egyptian burial text.

Regarding this Mormon Scripture from the Pearl of Great Price, the LDS Church now admits, “Mormon and non-Mormon Egyptologists agree that the characters on the fragments do not match the translation given in the book of Abraham.” So how can we trust Joseph Smith when the evidence proves he was a charlatan and not a prophet of God?

_________________________________________

ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS:

Mormons often try to excuse the evidence against the Book of Abraham by claiming that we do not possess the portions of the papyrus scrolls which Joseph Smith translated into his Book of Abraham.   Yet, as pointed out in our discussion of the Mormon Church essay in chapter one of this book, this argument fails on the fact that Joseph Smith copied the image of the papyrus fragments into his translation of the Book of Abraham, and this is the very same image identified on the fragments of the papyrus scrolls discovered.

The Church now admits that Joseph Smith’s translation of this image does not match the translation given by Egyptologists. Likewise, the date these manuscripts were written proves that they were not in existence during Abraham’s lifetime. So, even if we could find the missing fragments, these couldn't contain Abraham’s words as translated by Joseph Smith.

Anne MarieHi I’m Lee. For 32 years my wife and I raised our family Mormon. I was a High Priest and Bishop and our son served a mission in Brazil. As Mormons, we believed we were following Christ, until we discovered Polygamy, Polyandry, Blood Atonement, Lying for the Lord, and many other corruptions and false teachings in Mormonism. In spiritual turmoil, loving Christians reached out to us. bullets

Anne MarieHi I’m Trish. I was a Jehovah’s Witness for 42 years. I was lost and I was hungry and I didn’t know what for… until I found out who Christ really is. In all those years going door to door with my Bible, no one ever shared Christ with me. I don’t think they knew how. I don’t think they knew they could or that they needed to. I’m just so grateful someone finally did. bullets

Why Does It Take So Long For Victims to Come Forward?

Wise King Solomon wrote there is
"A time to be silent and a time to speak."

It seems with the #MeToo movement, it is a time for women in particular to speak. Conversations abound on social media concerning rape and the general disrespect for women. The latest news to stir the pot concerns the sexual assault allegations that Christine Blasey Ford has brought forth on Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

I'm not normally one to jump into these debates on social media, but it's easy to see the most common counter argument for Ford's case against Kavanaugh is the time span between the alleged rape and her coming forward. As I was reading one Facebook thread, this comment was left by a man:

"To wait that long whether he's guilty or not is just too long it's done it's over move on nothing anyone can say or do will ever change whether it was right or wrong just move on."

A woman responded with,
"there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault here in Maryland... The law says you're wrong..."

And then it got ugly. He resorted to obscene name calling and wrote, "it takes you 40 years to realize you were raped ? You can't fix stupid ignorance ..."

That's when I considered responding to his ignorance in that thread, but chose to do so here instead.

How Do Pastors Respond to Jehovah's Witnesses?

Being a Jehovah's Witness is an education that few will ever have. You really get to know the religious atmosphere of an area when you're forced to move past the small talk and bring up the topic of God with your neighbors. Even now as I drive past neighborhoods, I can recall certain people and conversations at particular houses. I can tell you who grew up Baptist, Catholic, or Lutheran. Who identifies themselves as Christian but believes in reincarnation or can't find the book of Genesis in a Bible. I remember the house where a Catholic woman told me they didn't need a Bible because they have the catechism. I remember how the other Witnesses in my car laughed harder than me when I told them about our conversation.

The truth is,
Jehovah's Witnesses make fun of Christians.

And talking with our Christian neighbors
on a regular basis only fortifies that position. 

Even when a doubting JW takes that brave step to talk with "apostates" in on line discussion groups, they will often point out that ONLY Jehovah's Witnesses are fulfilling the Great Commission by their thorough witnessing work. They'll note that Jehovah's Witnesses are KNOWN worldwide for their evangelism in contrast to others who identify themselves as Christians but are not engaged in such a work. And it's all too true. As a new Witness approved for field service, I was both eager and intimidated by taking my first door, but
