Volume five in The Mormon Delusion series investigates the early Mormon ‘Lectures of Faith’, comparing the doctrines of the time with the teachings of today – which are entirely different. It then analyses each ‘Section’ of the Doctrine and Covenants while searching for Joseph Smith ‘prophecies’ which are evaluated in terms of any evidence of fulfilment. It will come as no surprise to learn that none have any prophetic value or merit whatsoever. However, there is plenty of evidence of Smith’s fraud scattered throughout the D&C which is analysed at each stage.

Nov 12, 2014I have read all 5 volumes. His first 3 are just packed with well resourced historical information. When I then glanced at the contents of his last 2 volumes (4 &5) I thought they would be boring. Why should I want to read about the Missionary Discussions or The Doctrine and Covenants again? But I did, and was amazed. If I had to read again any of his books, it would be those last two. Jim brings some very interesting angles and background information on the lunacy of basic Church teachings I once thought were so true. I particularly found his scolding of Smith’s absurd god (with a small ‘g’) to be profound as well as hilarious. Seeing through Jim’s eyes, I discovered that the god of the D&C (Smith invented Revelations) was petty, vengeful, nasty, petulant, arrogant, small minded, deceptive, violent, inconsistent and wholly unreliable... and far from convincing. He describes in frustration about the god that never seems to stop blaming and threatening his own people as well as... More > constantly labeling the entire human race as ‘evil’.... “Why can’t the Mormon God, just for once, be NICE – ever? Although I have penned my own book on the subject (The Youngest Bishop in England), I would seriously prefer a doubting and serious searcher of truth to read Jim's volumes before mine as they contain more information and evidence of the hoax. The author’s grasp and knowledge of science, physics, geology, archaeology and biology, is evident throughout his writings. His journey has been a hard and cruel discovery of facts and like many honest and utterly devout souls who can no longer live a lie, has incurred alienation from his family with suffering and rejection. His books stand as a supreme achievement and offer a light and warning to the world of the real history and face of Mormonism. For me personally, they stand as a major resource and comprehensive evidence to the great Mormon deception; every important issue is there and written with painstaking meticulous care and correctness.< Less
Jul 21, 2014The Mormon Delusion, Volume 5 is an expose of Mormon writings that are defined by the Mormon Church as The Doctrine and Covenants of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints containing revelations given to Joseph Smith, The Prophet with some additions by his successors in the presidency of the church. On the cover of this, his Fifth Volume of work, Jim Whitefield added an alternative title directly under Doctrine and Covenants, namely Deception and Concoctions. This Mormon book, The D&C was in our home on the day I was conceived. A new copy was given to me by my Father on the day I entered the Mission Home to train for my 2 yr mission for the Mormon Church. It was in my folk’s home on the day my Father died. At this time it is with one of his children or grandchildren. If our home were to have burned down and the D&C were sitting next to an original two hundred year old volume of Shakespeare’s Works and there was time to grab only one book Shakespeare would still be on... More > what ever would be left of the shelf under it. Same for the King James Bible no matter how old. In Vol 5 Jim Whitefield dissects Joseph Smith’s prophecies and revelations. He displays them with pins as would a biologist an insect. We can see them, each one, as if they were a life form by structure, function, and taxonomy. It is a two inch thick book of 540 pages that covers each of Smith’s revelations, commandments, etc. Whitefield summarizes the D&C: “A journey through he D&C reveals Joseph Smith did not get anything right at all. In fact, he made such a mess of all his predictions and prophecies that none of them have any merit whatsoever. It turns out that there aren’t very many real ‘prophecies’ to be found in the D&C at all and none of them have ever materialized, despite Mormon Church claims to the contrary.” There was one prophecy he did get right. He called the civil war, said it would happen. So did everyone else at the time even if you did not read the newspapers of the day. I find it more than interesting that this author feels called to warn the reader not to read further. I quote. “Please understand if you decide to proceed, that you do so entirely at your own risk.” If you have any questions about Mormonism look no farther than Jim Whitefield.< Less
