  1. Katie Dotson Says:

    Marie, when you said your son was all about dogs right now, it reminded me of an old acquaintance I had that said as a child she read that “The Lord is my shepherd” and if he were a shepherd he had sheep and would need help herding those sheep. So it made sense to this woman, as a child, that “Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy were God’s sheep dogs as they followed him everywhere.

    Makes total sense to me.

    Great job with the show, I enjoyed it as always


    • My Book of Mormon Says:

      Thank you!

      When I was little I always assumed hell was exactly as described: a place with weeping and snatching of teeth. Wow, did I feel like an idiot when I discovered “gnashing” was a word.


  2. Duke of Earl Grey Says:

    So when Marie and Bryce were about to read “my verse 8, your verse 10”, but then went off on a small tangent about how it’s a shame the verses were ever renumbered, apparently they forgot they never got around to reading verse 8, because they started reading again at “your 11, and my 9”. Here’s what you missed:

    “My disciples, in days of old, sought occasion against one another and forgave not one another in their hearts; and for this evil they were afflicted and sorely chastened.”

    It’s not a very important verse, I suppose, considering it could be entirely omitted without disrupting the flow of the section, such as it is. I think if the verse has any purpose for being there, it’s just to say that Jesus’ old church sucked balls, and that’s why it fell into apostasy, and hey you, newly restored church, you don’t want that to happen to you, do you? The current church, of course, will not admit that their wholesale apostasy is even a possibility.

    Sorry to be such a prig, but you guys overlooked at least one other notable change in the text. In verse 23, the phrases “until the coming of the Son of Man” and “at his coming” were added as parenthetical expressions in the 1835 D&C version, and some time later the parentheses were removed. Again, this doesn’t seem super important. Perhaps Joseph Smith just wanted to remove all doubts that when the revelation said “today” is a day of sacrifice, and a day of tithing, it was referring to a metaphoric “day”, so keep that tithing coming in until the end of the world, please.

    As for the “five years” prophecy, the church sees that as a true prophecy, not a false one, since the church headquarters stayed in Kirtland long enough for the temple to be completed within that time, and for all the interesting events associated with it to occur, and then very shortly after the five years were up, the church fell into complete disarray in Kirtland, as Bryce spoiler-ishly alluded to…

    And now I have Bowie on the brain, so if you’ll permit me:
