Did you have some point you were trying to make?
From my first post:
Mormon was a prophet in the Book of Mormon who abridged the ancient records of many prophets into a single volume. Thus his abridgment is The Book of Mormon. It was through Mormon's son Moroni, who appeared to Joseph Smith as an angel and directed him to the buried plates that contained the record. The Book of Mormon is a second witness of Jesus Christ who appeared unto his other sheep which were not of the fold in Israel but in ancient America. The Book of Mormon is the stick of Joseph spoken of in Ezekiel 37.
Nobody is saying that those who lived in Israel had the Book of Mormon.
From my second post:
Upon reestablishing his church on the earth, He called it, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to distinguish it from His church he established among his former-day Saints.
My point is that you are likely the one being conned by your own belief system.
1) There is no "Mormon Pope"
2) the Church was given it's proper name in 1838. Before then it was just called the Church of Christ.
3) nothing wrong with being accurate
4) we were told more guidelines for this counsel will be forthcoming.
5) I suspect this comes now to reiterate the point that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restoration of the Church Jesus established during His ministry. It's His Church. He directs it. He is the head.
Mormons represent the 2nd most gullible of the human species, right behind Scientologists.
Mormons get their asses raped and have to conform to Secular morality, because their Book is incompetent and doesn't withstand the test of times.
For example, their book says they "shall be a white and a delightsome people." They waited until the 1970s, when Society forced them to evolve, to even let Black folks become priests. Hard to reconcile when the dummies avow that their leaders speak directly from God.
The ones I have met are good people and quite successful.
Most religions evolve to social construction demands over time. The big question right now is when can sisters partake in the priesthood.

That's the sticking point. An omniscient being with absolute morality wouldn't need to wait for secular humans to enlighten themselves towards less barbaric morality....he'd/she'd/it would have known and taught it from the beginning.*
*If we are speaking of the Gods of the major earthly religions. An attribute of most of them is an unchanging nature.
Most organized religion is developed by humans who have rules that change with the times. Utah is a fun place to live
All, in my view. (instead of most)
But thats not what they PROCLAIM regarding their moral system. They proclaim its from their God, and then delight us with pseudo-psychological sophistry when the morality of the god in their book.....doesn't pass for civility in secular society.
