Many Changes Made to Book of Mormon

book-of-mormon

One claim made by Mormon missionaries is that the Bible has been corrupted/mistranslated while the Book of Mormon was “translated” by a “prophet”. What is funny is that since the first edition of the Book of Mormon (1830) there have been close to 4000 changes made to the Book of Mormon.  And those changes happened not too long after the first edition. I found a 1840 edition of the Book of Mormon and I found key differences between the 1840 edition and the 1830 edition. And some of those changes do indeed affect doctrine.  Joseph Smith the “prophet” was still alive in 1840 when those changes occurred so even the presence of a “prophet” could not preserve the Book of Mormon from “corruption” and “errors” within the space of 10 years while God has preserved His word for hundreds of years.

If anyone needs proof check out this article by Utah Lighthouse Ministry (Sandra Tanner):

article : “3,913 Changes in the Book of Mormon

To verify the claims of the article here’s a facsimile of the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon which can be downloaded:

Here’s one interesting screen capture from the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon showing that the first edition of the Book of Mormon clearly taught the eternality of Christ :

Here’s another interesting screen capture from the same document:

In the 1840 edition of the Book of Mormon it says that the Lamb is the SON of the Eternal Father instead of the Eternal Father (1830 edition):
