3. Orson Pratt stated, about the Book of Mormon, "This book must be either true or false. If true, it is one of the most important messages ever sent from God...If false, it is one of the most cunning, wicked, bold, deep-laid impositions ever palmed upon the world, calculated to deceive and ruin millions who would sincerely receive it as the word of God, and will suppose themselves securely built upon the rock of truth until they are plunged with their families into hopeless despair. The nature of the message in the Book Of Mormon is such, that if true, no one can possibly be saved and reject it; if false, no one can possibly be saved and receive it."
9. 1 Nephi 11:21. Page 25 of the 1830 edition says, "And the angel said unto me, Behold the Lamb of God, yea even the eternal father". In later editions, and reads, "And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the son of the eternal Father!" How is this change explained?
10. 1 Nephi 11:32 in the 1830 version said, "And I looked and beheld the Lamb of God...yea, the everlasting God was judged of the world." The passage now reads, "...yea, the Son of the everlasting God…" Why the change?
How are these oddities explained?
