What is the First Vision?

Caleb Veenker
The First Vision is the answer to a young 14 your old boy. Joseph Smith grew up in upstate New York. In his home town there was a ton of deferent preachers trying to convert Joseph. As he investigated them he found that they were not all teaching the same truths. Joseph was confused with what church he should join. He was reading in the bible in James chapter One Verse 5, that says "if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him" Joseph pondered over that verse and decided that the only way he was going to find out what church was true was to ask. So he went out into a grove of trees by his home. He knelt down and started to pray to ask God witch church was true. He received the answer. God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him that none of the churches were true, and he should not join any of the churches. They also told Joseph that thought him Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would restore Christ true church back onto the earth. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Caleb Veenker
The Book of Mormon is Another testament of Jesus Christ. It go's hand and hand with the Bible. It is a record of a Family that left Jerusalem 600 years B.C. The father of the family was a Prophet and was rejected by the people in Jerusalem. The Lord Commanded him to take his family and to leave. They were led by the Lord to the Americas and there seed became the ancestors of the Native Americans. The Book of Mormon tells of the Prophesies of the Prophets and their doings in the Americas. The crowning moment of the Book of Mormon is that Jesus Christ Showed him self unto the People. And taught them what he had taught the people in Jerusalem. If you read the Book of Mormon and Pray about it with real intent you can know for yourself that this Book is True and that it is the keystone of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
