Mormonism LIVE !: 015: Tales of Hofmann

On tonight’s episode RFM and Bill Reel dive further into the Mark Hofmann story exposing Elder Oaks and at the time Elder Gordon B. Hinckley as potentially deceiving and lying about what transpired in their meeting with Hofmann and their efforts to obtain what they believed were authentic and also damaging documents to the Church’s narrative and the faith of its members.  Bill concludes with revealing multiple never before seen documents including the Hofmann’s outline for the forged 116 pages of the book of Lehi, Hofmann’s Psychological evaluation, his education report cards, and a master list of all the signatures/authored documents he forged of famous people.


Elder Oaks 1985 talk that includes much around the Hofmann affair including suggesting a Salamander could be interpreted as the angel Moroni –

Elder Oaks suggesting if we keep the commandments we won’t be deceived while the listener recognizes Elder Oaks, then Elder Gordon B Hinckley, and other leaders were in fact deceived by Hofmann –

  1. Rust coins gave the $185,000 to Hoffmann to buy the McClellin collections that the church already owned in their vaults.

  2. The church had the McLellin Journal/Diary in their possession.

    Hofmann was offering a “collection”.

    If they were aware they had the journal/diary, how did that impact their dealings with Hofmann?

  3. It is so hard to believe that I had to step out of the church to look back in. When I did, I still struggled because I saw some cult issues but Mormons believe in Christ. However, as I went further down the rabbit hole many of my questions were answered such as why I struggled so much with the temple. Also why I struggled with Joseph Smith and bro. Brigham.

    The bottom line is that you can’t build truth on lies.

    Thanks so much for your time and effort in putting the podcasts forth to the masses..
