The Ever Changing and Ever Shifting LDS Doctrine

This program identifies the ever changing and shifting Doctrine of the Mormon Church in comparison to the Will and Mind of the Lord as recorded in Scripture. We reviewed the major changes in the LDS Doctrine as they relate to Plural Marriage. 

Joseph Smith at age 37 married 10 teenagers (some as young as 14 years old), 4 pairs of sisters and a mother and daughter pair.  Lorenzo Snow (5th Mormon Prophet) at age 57 married a 15 year old girl!
