Episode 183: D&C 82 – Section 105, Part 2 (feat Zelph on the Shelf)

Episode 183: D&C 82 – Section 105, Part 2 (feat Zelph on the Shelf)

Cholera sweeps through the Mormons camped on the Fishing River, which hopefully had nothing to do with the remains of a dead “warrior” that Joseph has been carrying around? Most of the saints stay in Missouri on  account of a lack of resources to return to Kirtland, OH. Joseph and his BFFs get on a wagon and return to Ohio.

Check out Zelph on the Shelf here!

Drink count – 7, or about one beer

Joseph re-allocates the church’s possessions to his inner circle.

Step 1: Get rid of the Bad People in your inner circle by politicking them out of said inner circle so you can take their portion.

Step 2: Give the big items to people who might know what to do with it.

Step 3: Don’t worry about it if your name is John Johnson and literally your entire farm and land is being given to a crazy guy named Martin Harris.

Episode 178: D&C 77 – Section 102

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.

Joseph solved a power grab attempt by Rigdon by making Ridgon, Frederick G Williams, and Joseph “equal”. Being a Gentile or a Jew is very confusing. Joseph revelates the life savings away from the only named woman in the D&C that’s not his wife.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

What happens to us when you die? Resurrection 1 – good people. Resurrection 2 – bad people. Lucifer is bad and is now in hell. Punctuation is terrible, almost as terrible as apostacy!! Marie and Bryce will be there, drinking coffee, ruling alongside Lucifer, and wondering about why their worm is dead. The good people (men) are of the Church of the Firstborn and become (men) gods. All ur stuff r belong to Christ. Christ is middle management to God, so all ur stuff r belong to God.

The PR problem caused by Ezra Booth’s anti-Mormon shenanigans have died down, so now it’s time to return to what you were doing. Joseph and Sidney are to go back to translating the bible. Then we jump back in time to 1830 to talk about baptism (sort of). Did you know that circumcision and baptism are kinda sorta related? Bring on the Baptist perspective!
Drink count – 5, or barely a beer if you take huge swigs

Episode 152: D&C 52 – Sections 71 and 72 (Feat. Jim Van Heel)

Episode 152: D&C 52 – Sections 71 and 72 (Feat. Jim Van Heel)

Ezra Booth has caused a public image problem by publishing a bunch of anti-Mormon letters in the local newspapers. Joseph decides to solve this by sending out his followers to get more followers. Newel K. Whitney is called to be a bishop! It’s a bit different than Edward Partridge, who is bishop over all the money and the belongings. Newel is mostly keeping the meeting minutes?

Joseph heavily implies that everyone should keep a journal, which is a problem since apparently general authorities kinda don’t. Methinks section 72 is the genesis of modern day recommends…

Be advised that Jim has watched every episode of The Bachelor this season.

Read the story of one woman married to seven brothers here in both Matthew and Luke.

Catherine of Alexandria was a Catholic saint who was aces at converting people to Christianity.

Patron-only Bonus Episode: Jim tells Marie all about whatever happened to Joseph Smiths’ translation of the Bible, in part because Marie couldn’t figure out why it would be such an expensive purchase on Amazon.

Bryce is going on a road trip! Drop him a line at nakedmormonism@gmail.com if you live near a major Mormon historical site. He’d love to meet you!

Chapter 69 is a tangible revelation with a measurable result, and measurable results were achieved!!!!! Oliver Cowdery needs a chaperone on his trip to Zion while holding all of the church’s money and revelations, John Whitmer is now designated as gopher/church historian. Chapter 70 is all about giving your excess to the bishop’s church, kind of, but in reality we aren’t quite sure what it’s saying. #equality

Newel K Whitney becomes a bishop in basically the next chapter. Priestcraft is mentioned in the Book of Mormon, but since David didn’t know about it, I didn’t know about it.

Is there an immortal beings club that meets every couple of hundred years? Joseph revelates himself into a feedback loop w/r/t the bishopric. Four of Joe’s buddies get revelations, then Joe tells us all about how power structures work in the church. Are revelations personal, or are we mouthpieces of god if we feel good about it whatever we’re saying? Marie and Bryce practice their “smooth” voices.

Episode 147: D&C 48 – Sections 65 and 66

We learn how to pray without learning many, if any, specifics of how to pray. William McLellin hands us a PRIME example to prove Joseph’s prophetic powers by asking for answers to five questions without telling Joseph what those questions were. Joseph gives the most vague of vague answers, Williams tells everyone his questions were answered, and we *never find out what the questions were*.

Should we do a Mormon Awful Movies for our Patrons?

Which host on the NPR Politics Podcast is Mormon? I didn’t have time to go back and find out.

62: Joseph phones it in with a quick revelation to some of his peeps who happened to walk by, because they get to keep doing what they’re doing while his inner circle remains destined to travel upon cursed waters.

63: God is in a bad mood and will smack you down if you’re bad. Also, you shouldn’t need a sign/tangible proof to believe in god, because you’ll only get a sign if you already believe.

Poor Edward Partridge can’t catch a break, what with all the micromanagement. Joseph, Oliver, and Sidney (Rigdon) are on their way to Cincinnati, while his other buddies are sent to St. Louis. They’re all instructed to make haste while not speedily returning, and somehow God’s jewels are involved.

Episode 141: D&C 42 – Section 59 (feat. Jim Van Heel)

Jim teaches us the hierarchical structure of the church because Marie doesn’t know what a General Authority is, and be advised that Duke of Earl Grey is now the show’s General Authority (woo hoo!). Joseph Smith repeats a semblance of the 10 commandments, and really that’s it. Turns out going to the Bishop to confess is a Thing that happens, and apparently we’re supposed to be happy when we’re fasting. It’s bad to be wasteful and don’t be a jerk, and be an environmentalist. Got questions? Scoot, god doesn’t have time for them.

Job is a man/chapter in the Bible.

I swear I learned a song in Sunday School that used the verse “love the lord thy god with all they heart”, but I couldn’t find one with a familiar tune, so really all I did was royally mess up my YouTube video recommendations. I recommend listening to anything from Chvrches, they’re pretty cool, and you can say “I’m listening to Chvrch music!”

Episode 140: D&C 41 – Section 58, Part 2

Ask not what the church can do for you, but what you can do for your church. If you need a revelation from god to tell you what to do, woe betide you, for you are slothful. For shame! Cross your fingers that all new revelations supersede previous ones, so we all hope that this one no longer matters because Joseph Smith is hypocritical all over the place.

Ziba Peterson did all sorts of hanging after he left the church.

Andrew Torrez is a lawyer who co-hosts Opening Arguments along with Thomas Smith. If anyone knows about the intricacies of superseding, he does. Go listen to his show!

Authorship attribution, which is mildly confusing because it’s not by the chapters as they’re published today, it’s by the chapters as it was originally published. Thanks for confusing us all, publishers!

Episode 139: D&C 40 – Section 58, part 1

Patriarchal blessings – how do they work?
Punctuation and verse allocation – why don’t they work?
Heaven – HOW DOES THAT WORK?

Joseph tells the believers to throw a party with the rich and educated on the VIP list, because who needs consistency with the Book of Mormon when Zion has been found? Edward Partridge is treated like a toddler for (apparently) making bad decisions, but that’s okay, he’s still the Bishop in charge of the Bishop’s Storehouse.
