You Can’t Separate The Book of Mormon From Joseph Smith
A common question we hear a lot is: “How can you separate Joseph Smith from The Most Holy & Sacred Book of Mormon?” Most Mormon’s don’t know this, but early on, Joseph tried to separate himself from The Most Holy & Sacred Book of Mormon by selling its copyright.
Question: Mormons should ask themselves what would have happened to The Most Holy & Sacred Book of Mormon if Joseph succeeded in selling the copyright?
Answer: People would not have had to show their faith in it by joining his church. The Book would have gone freely – like the Bible – to the world with no strings attached.
