Quotes

Founder

"[The Book of Mormon is] the most correct of any book on Earth."

- Joseph Smith Jnr
(and just so you know, that was before any of the more than 4,000 changes were made).

"I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet..."

- Joseph Smith
History of the Church Vol. 6, pp. 408-409.

Compare with: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast."

- Bible, Ephesians 2:8-9.

Church Leadership

"[The] public has no business knowing about church history and doctrine."

- F LeMar Sleight, Stake President.

"... that the LDS church has an obligation to conceal its doctrines; that we are trying to become a mainstream Christian church."

- F Burton Howard and F Enzio Bushe,
First Quorum of the Seventy.

"Who is the great whore of Babylon? It is the Catholic Church and her Protestant daughter who have defiled the earth with their filthiness and fornications."

- Orson Pratt, a Mormon Apostle.

Detractors

"[Joseph Smith Jnr is] untruthful, addicted to vicious habits and a philanderer [promiscuous]."

- 62 of Smith's neighbours in a petition.
