Mormon Stories - LDS

Today we discuss several problematic "revelations" by LDS prophets that succeeded Joseph Smith.  These include:

  • John Taylor's 1886 revelation on the continuation of polygamy.
  • The multiple "manifestos" allegedly ending the practice of polygamy (but not really).
  • The lifting of the 1978 priesthood and temple ban against Mormons of African descent.
  • Changes to the LDS temple ceremony over the years.
  • Russell M. Nelson's condemnation of the use of the "Mormon" identity after Gordon B. Hinckley and Thomas S. Monson's strong support of the "Mormon" identity.
  • The 2015 LGBTQ Exclusion policy, and the subsequent 2019 reversal of the policy/doctrine.
  • The Mark Hofmann forgeries.
