Hello, I’m Bishop Lee Baker
As a member of the Mormon faith for 32 years, having served honorably in many Leadership positions at the Branch, Ward and Stake level, I forced my own excommunication in 2008 after several painful years of meetings and letters to the highest levels of the Mormon Church concerning questions of doctrine and history.

The MOST Far-Reaching and the most Significant Doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is that you cannot Trust the Word of God found in the Bible. In this half hour radio broadcast, former Mormon Bishop Lee and Kathy Baker discuss the accuracy and preservation of the Biblical manuscripts that demonstrate without a shadow of a doubt the trustworthiness of God's Word, the Holy Bible.Read more
Mainstream Mormonism is a weekly broadcast airing Saturdays at 4PM Mountain Time. It is a listener-focused review of core LDS teachings from Mormon Church publications found within every LDS home. Topics are taken from the Official and Authorized publications of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its Official website at lds.org.
Often members of the Mormon Church take some very momentary spiritual comfort, claiming that Joseph Smith Jr. may not have been perfect and even if he was a flawed vessel for God, undoubtedly the Book of Mormon stands as a clear testimony of his prophetic calling and his obvious divine favor with God.
For how else can the very existence of the Book of Mormon be explained?
Well, it seems that the actual formation or rather the construction of the Book of Mormon can now be reviewed in very specific and completely definite detail. No real mystery or divine intervention at all. Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery (his primary scribe) stole the general premise of the Book of Mormon from several historical and fictional books in general circulation long before the first printing of the Book of Mormon.
Far from just the theft of the general premise, the inclusion of some very specific and extremely unique phrases and elaborate expressions available to Smith and Cowdery from several books that they themselves reference, makes it statistically impossible that the Book of Mormon can be considered an original work, much less divine Scripture.
Books Used to Build the Book of Mormon:
- The Holy Bible
- The First Book of Napoleon, Tyrant of the Earth
- The Late War, Between the United States and Great Britain, From June 1812, to February 1815
- View of the Hebrews 1825, by Ethan Smith: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/View_of_the_Hebrews
- Radio Program by Lee & Kathy Baker, “The Proof of Plagiarism in the Book of Mormon”: http://leebaker.4mormon.org/the-proof-of-plagiarism-in-the-book-of-mormon/
This program will give solid evidence and proof that the Book of Mormon was written by Joseph Smith Jr. and his associates rather than it being the word of God translated from Gold Plates. Several groundbreaking investigations have been completed to identify the true source of the Book of Mormon, this information will Rock your World.

A Challenge – Reward: 1 of 3 authentic Widows’ Mite from Jerusalem
I fully realize that this article is long, but I give you my word that if the instructions at the end of this editorial are followed and the winners identify themselves as outlined, I will forward three authentic Widows’ Mite found from within the walls of Old Jerusalem, with both an Olive wood case and a Formal Certificate of Authenticity from Zak Mishiriky, one of the foremost licensed Christian Antique Dealers of Jerusalem.
These Hasmonian Jewish coins are from the time of Jesus. As they were recovered within the walls of Old Jerusalem, they most certainly had at one time, cycled through the treasury of Herod’s Temple as either a Tithing or a Tax.
Thank You for your participation and may God Bless.

TESTIMONIES FROM OUR AFRICAN MINISTRY
“Thank you for the awareness you have created for Liberia, the Mormon Missionaries are pouring in each month.” Matthew, Borrii, Liberia
“Thank you for your program of Teaching The Truth on Worship FM. I was just about to join the Mormon Church.” Naomi, Sinoe, County
“Greetings my Brother and Sister Baker. You have allowed me to know about the Mormon Church. I am one of those which the missionary talked into joining the true church and I began to study the background of Joseph Smith and I learned that he had many wives which some of them where other men’s wives. I do think it is not of God. God bless you as you provide the Gospel.” –Marie, Monrovia, Liberia
“Pride and greed and selfishness had been my best friends that has been misleading me in life. I felt money could give me all in life until one day when I felt ill and doctors gave up on me and money could not buy what I was about to loose – my life. While on my dying bed, I heard you preaching. Right there I realized that I needed salvation and that Christ was the only way. I then surrender. And Christ accepted me. I have given all that I ever own and have turn to worship the true living God who is the giver of riches.” –Jackson, Monrovia, Liberia
