Lectures on Faith: Historical context w/ Gottfried The Hirsute

By authority of the Council’s order the Expositor press was destroyed that same day and the newspaper was immediately shut down. It never resumed publication.

This was originally the appendix/closing of the Book of Commandments. Since the BoC was never fully published, it was included as part of the revelations instead of a separate appendix. It’s the return of Pangea at the end of days, with a brief visit to Canada first. Eternity is singing to god. That god is having a big ol’ tantrum because his creations aren’t paying him enough attention, so watch out or he’ll send you to outer darkness.

Ep 209: D&C 105 – Section 101 (monogamy, erased)

D&C 101 was in the 1835 and 1844 versions of the D&C… and then was removed. You can’t find it referenced on LDS.org, so it’s almost as if it was *gasp* removed entirely so that it wouldn’t conflict so drastically with modern day D&C 132. Here’s what it says:

You can get married to a non-believer, you’ll just be marked as “weak”. When you get married it should be public and done according to local laws. Your officiant needs to wing it, no writing a ceremony beforehand! Pledge to be monogamous to your hetero spouse. Monogamy is the only option, heterosexuality is the only sexuality, public is the only type of ceremony to be done.

Ep 206: D&C 102 – Sections 129 to 131

Welcome to the episode when Marie absolutely CANNOT follow along with what the revelations are saying. The Nauvoo Mormons are being fast-tracked into Masonry, which we should care about, but we care more about how to identify a good or bad spirit.

  1. When you meet a spirit, ask to shake its hand. If it’s corporeal and takes your hand AND you can feel it, then it’s a good spirit.
  2. If it doesn’t move but can speak, then it’s a just man made perfect. It’s good, not evil, just not super duper good (I think).
  3. However, it if moves, shakes your hand and you DON’T feel their hand, then it’s a devil/bad spirit.

Angels get their own planet, as do men, but not women. Joseph prophesies the Civil War.

More on baptisms for the dead. There should always be at least 2 witnesses, ideally 3, for each baptism. The church recorder should record each one, and also record sealings. This book is somehow also created in heaven (not sure why). Know that if your name isn’t in this official holy church record then God won’t find you and be able to let you into the celestial kingdom. Now, go build that temple!!!!!!

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.

Sidney Rigdon has been hitting the bottle a bit too hard and is considering going back to Ohio.

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.

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.

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!!!

Lyman Sherman: “I’m part of the council of the 70! Now what?”
God/Joseph Smith: “Chillax, I haven’t figured it out yet.”

109
The church’s magnum opus is being dedicated! The Kirtland temple was four years in the making and had plunged Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon into deep, deep debt.

Episode 185: D&C 84, Section 107 Part 2

Episode 185: D&C 84 – Section 107 Part 2

The priesthood is The Force, the church teaches you how to use that priesthood authority to do All The Things. After that we get the lineage/genealogy of priesthood authority. To sum up, be biologically male, don’t be slothful, middle management is the best, don’t be born unto the Levitical line of Judaism.

Names with their LDS.org links, kinda not a genealogy!
Seth 
Enos, son of Seth
Mahalaleel, father of Jared
Jared, I couldn’t find a link for him on LDS.org!
Enoch, 7th son of Adam

Jeremy Runnell’s excommunication on YouTube
and a link to his Mormon Stories interview

 

Patron Bonus: Marie went to an entire 3 hour church service

Episode 184: D&C 83 – Section 106 and 107 part 1

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.

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!
