Examining The Rigdon – Spalding Theory Part 1 | Mormonism LIVE 165

Examining The Rigdon – Spalding Theory [Mormonism LIVE: 165] In “Examining The Rigdon Spalding Theory,” hosts Bill Reel and RFM embark on a journey beyond the familiar narrative of golden plates and angels. Delving into the Rigdon Spalding theory, they navigate the murky waters of historical documents and eyewitness accounts to present a compelling case for its consideration. By carefully laying out the best evidence, the hosts encourage listeners to critically engage with the possibility that the Book of Mormon may have origins rooted in Rigdon and Spalding’s collaboration. Join them on a quest for understanding that challenges established narratives and prompts a reevaluation of Mormon history.

  1. I’ve always enjoyed the intro cheering, but I usually turn it down a couple notches until you start, so maybe just turn it down a bit and see what your audience says.

    Also, we stepped up our monthly contribution by $20. I think we have our original contribution going to RFM and the new to Mormon Discussions. But I think that they both end up in the same bucket of donations…

    Thanks for all you do!
