The Impact of the Joseph Smith Translations

The Impact of the Joseph Smith Translations

Biblical and Historical scholars agree that evidence from thousands of Biblical manuscripts confirm that the Biblical text has been preserved  with 99% accuracy.  Absolutely no significant doctrinal changes have been made in the hundreds of years of its existence as Jesus attested: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35)  Yet, with absolutely not manuscript evidence, Joseph Smith made hundreds of changes to his translation of the Bible as documented in the LDS Version of the King James Bible. This program reviews a few of the major and heretical impacts (if considered valid) of the Joseph Smith Translations to the Bible in the context of Orthodox Christianity.

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
