  1. I believe the LDS church is subtly, publicly (not with their members) sneaking away from Book of Mormon references, especially Moroni and publicly (including google maps) toward a Jesus narative. Perhaps they are using the BOM Central to do that work for them. Also, just as they created 13 shell companies to hide their money, I believe they may be doing similar practice to hide their fingerprints on other things like “non-profits” and court decisions. I count 10 LDS church builldings within five mile radius of Salt Lake Temple that are closed, sold or repurposed for other things. Two examples is Ivory Construction created a nonprofit called Ivory Foundation and LDS church donated a building on 7th South and 4th East to them. Another church on 3rd E. and about 1900 South is being leased to an organization called Columbus Adult Education Center. However, the picture on their wall of Joe Smith and a quote by Tom Monson tells me the organization is a cover to subtly sneak LDS endoctrination into minds. (I purposely spell endoctrine with “e”. Kind of like ensure vs insure.) Also, a couple LDS churches on 9th west are repurposed for other uses. Sincerely, Jay Larsen
