As a “Prophet of God” Joseph Smith’s prophecies repeatedly failed. Why did David Patten die before he fulfilled his mission.
Did Joseph Smith write himself into Mormon scripture in order to convince people he was a prophet?
It’s apparent that these scriptural passages came through one man. And it’s the same man who is the object of those prophecies – Joseph Smith.
Doesn’t that seem self-serving and arrogant of Joseph Smith to write himself into the narrative of what is called Mormon scripture?
