Ep 203: D&C 99 – Sections 125 and 126

Build up a city on the Iowa side of the river, possibly so that Joseph can escape jurisdiction in Illinois by hopping over the border from Nauvoo to Montrose. Brigham Young has returned from his mission overseas and brought an influx of believers from England. Plural marriage is full-on happening, and it’s not always incredibly full of consent.

Ep 202: D&C 98 – Section 124, Part 5 (the finale!!!!)

Sidney Rigdon has been hitting the bottle a bit too hard and is considering going back to Ohio. Joseph strikes that down by telling him to not only stay in Illinois, but to move closer to Joseph’s soon-to-be built mansion. Robert D. Foster enters the timeline! Don’t spoil it for Marie, just google him and leave zero comments about it. Also, Nauvoo House is the 1841 equivalent to a 2018 start-up in Silicon Valley. Viva la Melchizedek Priesthood!!!!

Ep 201: D&C 97 – Section 124, Part 4

The Nauvoo house is owned by the Community of Christ today, but now is when the saints are told to build it. The church issues “investments” into the creation of the Nauvoo house, which looks suspiciously like a terrible idea. Oliver Cowdery is replaced by Hyrum Smith and William Law is given a few too many superpowers.

If you build a temple, they will come. *channels Field of Dreams*
Baptism for the dead is mentioned for the first time! It has to be done, but only AFTER the Nauvoo Temple is built, so give us all your resources to build that before we build houses for our own. No specific timeline, god understands that bad people may try to stop the Saints, don’t worry about it.

Episode 199: D&C 95, Section 124 (feat. Cheryl Bruno)

Mormonism is about to become entwined with Masonry. Joseph Smith now can say he’s Joseph Smith Sr since his dad has passed away, which is kinda sneaky, but works. April 6 is Jesus’s birthday, God loves Hyrum Smith, and the Nauvoo House is decreed to be built. Obviously, it doesn’t go as planned. Don’t worry everyone, it’ll all end up okay because heaven exists and if you die, that’s where you go.

Episode 198: D&C 94 – Section 124, Part 1

Joseph and his BFFs escape/bribe the guards to get out of jail and run off to a malaria-ridden swamp in Illinois. He heads to D.C. to take the saint’s grievances to Pres. Van Buren, saving the passengers of a runaway coach along the way. Van Buren doesn’t help them, so they start the trek back to Illinois.

John C. Bennett enters the timeline by becoming Joseph’s unofficial second in command. He’s a politician/lobbyest whose sway is critical in the creation of the city of Nauvoo. That Nauvoo charter grants Joseph some broad powers that will come in quite handy in the future (but we’re not there yet). It’s the episode where free will doesn’t exist!!!

God is either loving or wrathful, the priesthood authority comes from that love/wrath, so priesthood authority is always love. Wait, what?

“Taken out of context it means nothing, which means it means anything you want it to.”

 

All three witnesses to the golden plates have been excommunicated! Thomas Marsh needs to stay in Missouri and work, all the other leaders in the church need to go out and get more followers. Don’t worry, God will provide for their families, just GFTO, leadership. In spring, go to Europe!!!

Tithing is giving all your excess to the church as an initial outlay, then give 10% for the rest of your life. Yes, that’s really what Joseph means to say.

Oliver Cowdery and David Whitmer are tossed out, chaos everywhere! Time for a few revelations that will definitely get Joseph out of this mess. Spoiler, not what happened.

Like herding puppies through a bacon factory, things haven’t been going smoothly. Joseph and his BFFs have returned to Kirtland after the Zion’s Camp fiasco. First, Oliver’s older brother is sent out to be a missionary, then we learn specifics of how the priesthood works. Specifically, it rewrites church history/timelines such that Joseph
is a legitimate elder in the church rather than just a guy who decided to start a religion.

NOT A REVELATION. Sidney Rigdon gets written out of history in a few decades, but for right now he’s one of the three most important people in the church. Joseph sets up a hierarchy and a quasi-basis for church organization that will eventually morph into the Quorum of the Twelve. You’re required to listen to this podcast three times to really get the full effect.

Episode 166: D&C 66, Chapter 89 (Word of Wisdom)

Live show on July 29, 7pm, at Squatter’s Pub in Salt Lake City

How do we pronounce Geauga County? The folklore is that this revelatoin was given because Joseph and his buddies were chewing tobacco in the room above the kitchen
and it was dripping down onto Emma below. Here’s what the Word of Wisdom actually says:

Wine: only to be consumed as part of sacrament
Wine should be of Mormon make (so Mormons should have vineyards)
Strong Drink: Only to be used to wash the body
Tobacco: Don’t use tobacco. (vaping is a loophole because it doesn’t have tobacco)
Hot drinks: None are okay.
All wholesome herbs are good: Marijuana is definitely okay
Eat in season
Eat meat sparingly, and not during famine
Everyone should eat grain, but only in famine and excess hunger
Barley can be used for mild drinks
If you follow this you’ll have health in your navel and morrow to your bone

Are you fasting??? You should be. Proselytize all the time!!! If you aren’t seeking god, then you are hosed. Eclipse, earthquake, stars will be knocked out of orbit, bad storms with big waves, women are evil. Skip to verse 99 for useful information about resurrections, which isn’t at all helpful for the upbuilding of Zion, but whatever, get over it. Marie is going to die at the 7th trumpet.

Zion gets built up by… honestly, we’re not sure. God is everywhere, god is light, god will fill you. The earth shall die, it will be born again, and the righteous will inherit it. Kirtland = Outer Darkness. Once you die you’ll understand all this, so don’t worry about understanding it now.

16 drinks + 1 shot for For, For, so about three full beverages.

First, a discussion of an apologist view of why chapter 84 isn’t a false prophesy. Second, Joseph predicts a civil war, as well as a plague and an earthquake. Does this make him a prophet? Ehhhhhh…….. probably not.

Episode 162: D&C 62 – Sections 85 and 86

Joseph’s new scribe has a completely different tone, and it’s boring. The United Firm is kinda sorta failing at managing money on account of them never having enough money. If you don’t give your properties/monies to the church then you will be cut off from heaven. It’s the episode where Babylon is a total whore.

Episode 161: D&C 61 – Section 84 Part 2

Live show at Squatters Pub in SLC at 7pm on Saturday, July 29, 2017. Check the Facebook page for more details as it comes available.

Your job as a high priest is to recruit more people. True believers are are not bound by sin will have superpowers! Bryce was an idiot and got bitten by a snake. The gospel applies to everyone from Sept. 22, 1832 forward!!! As you go out on your missions, go without food or supplies because God will make you invincible and always provided for. Make sure you leave your money behind. While on your mission, if you find a newer missionary or a helper, give them all your grunt work.

Drink count – 12, or about 2 beers

Viva la priesthood! Women not invited. Basically an influx of new members are increasing the need for middle management. Additionally, here are some specific revelations included that didn’t come true or are contradictory.

1. The new city of Zion will be built in the Temple Lot.
2. It will happen in this generation (the 1832 generation).
3. No one will pollute Jackson County.

July 29, 2017 eveningish, meet up with us at Squatter’s Pub in Salt Lake City. We’ll probably record a live episode and would love to have you there!!

Jesse Gause is called to be a high counselor to Joseph Smith in his very own revelation, except then history is rewritten to make it be a revelation for Frederick G Williams. Joseph’s inner circle is back, now with nicknames! Everyone is exceedingly sinful/steadfastly good. Go get more converts, especially ones with money. Zion needs to pretty itself up. It’s the episode where Marie and Bryce rant about the
Prosperity Doctrine.

Help us make the 1876 D&C into something usable! Email Joel Kuhn at dccompare@gmail.com to help with the proofreading. Thanks!

The poor are established (built up, not created) via the United Firm. This is a fancy way to say the church is setting up a welfare system for members of the church.

Joseph revelates himself into a nickname, and maybe a city? You must be equal here on earth to get equal things in heaven (except some people are MORE equal). If you want to get into heaven make sure you’re doing all the things you’re  supposed to down here. Joseph and his peeps get code names. CODE NAMES (omg). Adam-on-diamon is a place where the big wigs give their keys to Jesus via Adam, who will usher in the end times.
