Ahhh... thank you... that reminded me of something I've been meaning to
pester you with... In the above message, but not the part you
quoted, I mentioned the RLDS Church (the Avis of the Mormon world).
Smith claimed his son would be his successor:
Smith's successor was Brigham Young.
Smith's son became the head of the RLDS.
Smith claimed the "Saints" would set up shop in Independence, Missouri.
The LDS Church is headquartered in Salt Lake, Utah.
The RLDS Church is headquartered in Independence.
The manuscript of the Book of Mormon is in the possession of the RLDS
Church, not the LDS one.
In the dedication prayer for the Kirtland temple, Smith claimed that
the the "holy presence" would be "continually in this house".
The Kirtland temple is in the possession of the RLDS.
If there is "one true Mormon church", it would appear that it has to be
the folks in Missouri, not the old men in Utah.
