You guys are funny as all get out. Did they change anything substantive in the BOM? No?

Hmmm . . . looks like you folks are wasting your time again!

Goodnight to one and all!

2 Nephi 30:6 in editions of the BOM prior to 1978 reads "... and many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a white and delightsome people."

I know that because I have a copy of the 1977 edition in front of me.

Editions of the BOM after 1978 change the word "white" in 2 Nephi 30:6 to "pure".

How do you suppose that happened, since the gold plates have never resurfaced, and no "reformed Egyptian" text exists for the church to retranslate, even if there were any scholars fluent in "reformed Egyptian"?

Could it be that God's perfect revelation had to be edited a bit to conform to a change in church policy regarding the priesthood?

How Clintonian!

I guess it just depends on what "is" is!


Well... I guess you COULD say that Monica was AMONG the folks who ended up under my desk.
