The Mormon Embarrassment of the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible

This program will review the impact of the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible specific to Genesis 17:11.  The change that Smith made to the Old Testament claims that the Covenant of Circumcision should be done at 8 years old not 8 days old. Is it possible that God did not speak with Abraham or Moses and He let His only Son, Jesus Christ complete the Covenant of Circumcision WRONG? That is the position of the Mormon Church, which is a clue that Joseph Smith Jr. was a liar.  This possibility of the Jewish Nation doing this wrong was the subject of several interviews I had with Rabbis in Jerusalem this year.

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.
