Did They Really Say That?!?

“There are many things in the Bible which do not, as they now stand, accord with the revelations of the Holy Ghost to me.”
Joseph Smith, Jr, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.310.

So, according to Smith, the Holy Spirit gave him revelations which do not agree with the Bible.  Therefore the Bible is in error.

I suggest that it wasn’t the Holy Spirit which gave Smith the revelations, because God does not contradict Himself.  Remember what Paul said: 

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned.”  (Gal. 1:8)

...for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11:14)

Smith claimed angels met him in the woods, and that an angel gave him the Book of Mormon.  Since Mormonism is a different gospel, these were not angels from heaven.  And Joseph Smith is eternally condemned, as are those who teach Smith’s gospel.
