Episode #37: Repelling The Latest Attacks On Joseph Smith & The First Vision W/Justin Francom

So there are a ton of things I have learned in doing this podcast. The one thing I have learned that I never saw coming was to just what lengths people will go to, to discredit Joseph Smith and other early LDS church leaders. See this very same tactic was used to discredit the Founding Fathers of the United States in order to remake the country into something it was never supposed to be. Well as said earlier now the same tactic is creeping into Mormonism. Discredit the founder and then Mormonism can be turned into something else. It was brought to my attention by my friend Justin Francom that the newest effort regards Joseph Smith and the First Vision. The charge that is being made by those seeking to undermine the foundations of the Restored Gospel is that Joseph’s First Vision was not of Heavenly origin but was instead his experiences while on hallucinogens. Now as preposterous as this sounds people are buying into it and this movement is growing. So on this episode Justin and I breakdown this theory and look at what its proponents trot out as evidence. I am sure that you will come to the same conclusion Justin and I have that the idea that Joseph’s First Vision was the result of a “trip” is complete nonsense and the accounts they use as evidence does not pass scrutiny. My hope is that by the end of this podcast you will be armed with the facts and be able to refute this claim when you encounter it.
