Apparently, all the translated work was sent to a "General Committee of Review".

Well Madaline, what's your excuse for the inquisition? "By their fruits ye shall know them." Was all that sent to a committee also?!?

If you're interested, which I doubt, there are good historical, scholarly, works that cover the inquisitions.

There was more than one and more than one circumstance in which they occurred. They were actions of men.

If you want me to judge by fruits, I suggest looking to that beam that is stuck there, in your eye. If you're the typical Mormon fruit, then I'm sure the whole barrel is rotting.

The Mormon church would have a long way to go to catch up with all the evils done by your church, and there are so many sites which document clearly the horrors that were instigated from the highest offices in your church!

Please don't pollute my thread this way! Open another for inquisition, if You want.


JST 9:3
- And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses or in other words, John the Baptist and Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
This words put an equal sign between John the Baptist and Elias.

This is the topic.

BTW Apparently You did forget to answer my prayer:

But, John the Baptist was not Elias and not Elijah, so the name had another meaning, obviously. That is my point.

Do You can read?

What does this sentence mean in normal, everyday English language?
JST 9:3
- And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses or in other words, John the Baptist and Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

None of them, as You prove it again and again.

THAT'S RIGHT! SO, ELIAS IS A TITLE USED FOR JOHN THE BAPTIST! HIS NAME WAS JOHN! HE WAS CALLED AN ELIAS! ALSO, IF JOSEPH SMITH DID NOT KNOW THIS AS YOU CLAIM, THEN WHY DIDN'T HE SAY THAT JOHN THE BAPTIST CAME IN D&C 110, INSTEAD OF SAYING ELIAS CAME?!?

If your argument is a longer period of time equates to more sins of men, I think that would be stating the obvious.

There is a reason we need Jesus Christ. It has always been Catholic teaching that we return, wounded, to Christ. It is the Protestant argument that one has to go searching for Him in as many religions as men can conjure up, including the conjurings of Joseph Smith.

No.
Elias may be a title in English. Elias may be anything in English.
(Apparently You have not enough brain cell to grasp it, but Elias can be even Elijah...)
In other languages no Elias, no John.

FYI

Language may refer either to the specifically human capacity for acquiring and using complex systems of communication, or to a specific instance of such a system of complex communication. The scientific study of language in any of its senses is called linguistics.

The approximately 3000–6000 languages that are spoken by humans today are the most salient examples, but natural languages can also be based on visual rather than auditory stimuli, for example in sign languages and written language. Codes and other kinds of artificially constructed communication systems such as those used for computer programming can also be called languages. A language in this sense is a system of signs for encoding and decoding information.

Because he didn't know who Elias is/was.
As You don't know. Your prophet is as stupid as You. Please get it as courtesy.

You're the stupid one! You claim you know all these languages, but you apparently can't seem top understand what I am stating in English!
You can't have it both ways! You were saying before that Joseph was mixed up between Elijah and Elias. However, I showed you where Joseph also referred to John the Baptist as Elias. You never answered my question! If you can understand this question, then try to answer it!

Question: If Joseph Smith didn't know that Elias was Elijah as you claim, and thought he was John the Baptist, then why didn't he state that it was John the Baptist who visited in D&C 110 since he referred to John the Baptist as Elias in his translation of Mark 9:3?!?

Answer:
Elias is one of the translation errors of the KJV. No more, no less.

Joseph Smith said and wrote a lot of cock about a lot of people called Elias.
These are
- not true, by default
- contradict with each other
- can not be understood, even by such brilliant thinkers as You (a nobody) and as Bruce R. McConkie* (a prophet, seer, a revelator, an oracle and superman)

Why did Joseph Smith (a prophet, seer, revelator, translator - see D&C 21:1, 107:92, 124:125) said false, contradictory and baffling things about some "eliases"? Because he know nothing about those eliases.
This is my answer. (See my signature abot preachers who were spouting gibberish... ) If You don't like my answer - I am certain You don't - then search another. I suggest You this official item, copy of the similar entry from Bruce R. McConkie's spiritual child, the Mormon Doctrine, which is not doctrine, BTW.

I would like to say something about the new revelation relative to the priesthood going to those of all nations and races.

Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whomsoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge...

Got it?

Answer this one then why is it obvious to not only Mormons, but also other people such as the one I referenced, that Elias is a name/term that can refer to more than one person (perfect example - John the Baptist called Elias!), but you are apparently unable to comprehend this concept!!!!!!!

Mormons are using the Bible with a suspicious eye, rather than a believing heart...I think that is what it comes down to.

There's no such thing as non-Biblical scripture.

Are you saying that your unprovable, supernatural belief system is true while all other unprovable, supernatural belief systems are false? That doesn't seem particularly fair. It also reeks of spiritual intolerance.

You mean like as in...

Bible = scripture.

Holy Koran = Scripture.

Come on, both should be capitolized, or niether should be capitolized...wouldn't you agree?
