In the 1832 account he states he already knew there was no true church and that the purpose was for a forgiveness of sins. This differs significantly from later accounts. Also wasn’t the 1832 account the only one written in JS handwriting? You state he dictated it to someone.

Steven Retz August 8, 2019 at 9:01 pm Reply Thanks again. You brought out some good points I had not thought of before, such as: JS told a preacher and it was not received well JS was being persecuted for it JS put it to writing soon after God told him to JS and others did not give an exact age The first vision was important to JS The first vision only had one human witness, JS, and things important to the church had multiple witnesses Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
