You have to understand that it is not my intention to be a missionary movement for the
church. I think that investigations of the Book of Mormon need to come as a natural
adjunct to historical research. I encourage LDS people to look beyond their history
to documents that would vindicate their beliefs. They don't do that and many
precious things are still lost to them. The truth has the power to emerge on its own
if we have ears to hear and eyes to see. In that I have more faith in Christ than my
brethren. I also believe that God works among all His children. In that I am
alone among my brethren. How could members of the Church stand in sacrament meeting
and honor Joseph Smith for the restoration of the Book of Mormon and reject the records of
the rest of the holy prophets because they are not contained in our private standard
works? Why doesn't someone pull out the seer stones in the vaults and begin again.
Jesus said that in the last day that which was hidden will be made manifest.
We live more in that day than did Joesph. The great discoveries of the desert
and Nile and the great revelations from hidden libraries fill our world. Joseph
found the Pearl of Great Price with an Egyptian Mummy. Could we possibly feel in our
pride that there isn't more? Are we to follow the hollow words of the world who say
that we have enough and need no more? Can we throw away the words of Jesus and the
prophets in such a cavalier attitude? We have become what we despise if we do.
My job is to raise the consciousness of the world to the ancient texts. The
Lord will purify them someday with a great translation. Perhaps he will reveal some
of them to be forgeries. However, they are not all forgeries.
