And the stuff I quoted and bolded also says that the Indians came from the Lamanites. So does the Introduction to the 1981 edition of the Book of Mormon. Interesting, no?You’ve been ignoring my post about that...
You’re the Mormon. You explain it. You're a critic. You explain it. I believe Joseph Smith explained it pretty well. He received it by the power of God. Now it's your turn (as it's always been).forums.carm.org
”He has revealed...” Who do you think “He” is?
“He has revealed the origin and the Records of the aboriginal tribes of America, and their future destiny. —And we know it. He has revealed the fulness of the gospel, with its gifts, blessings, and ordinances. —And we know it. He has commanded us to bear witness of it, first to the Gentiles and then to the remnants of Israel and the Jews. —And we know it. He has commanded us to gather together his Saints on this Continent, and build up holy cities and sanctuaries.”
That says God revealed who the native Americans are. It’s referring to the Book of Mormon. It says exactly what you asked. You can’t weasel out of that.
