    A Short History of Biblical Manuscripts and Translations

    in Christianity

    This program will review in detail the extraordinarily inaccurate statements made about the accuracy of the Bible by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has misinformed and driven its membership away from the True Word of God. The MOST Far-Reaching and the most Significant Doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is that you cannot Trust the Word of God found in the Bible. This belief comes from their 8th Article of Faith and from the Mormon Bible Dictionary; Bible/Old Testament/Dead Sea Scrolls: "The Dead Sea Scrolls, some of which are believed to be as early as the 2nd century B.C., give evidence that the Old Testament text was corrupted at least by that time." So the Mormon Bible Dictionary states that the Dead Sea Scrolls were Corrupt contridicting 1 Nephi:13.

    Note:  This is a Live Call-in Show on KUTR 820 AM and 95.3 FM Utah radio called “Mainstream Mormonism” by Bishop Lee Baker.  To participate LIVE, call KUTR at 866-348-7884 or 866-34-TRUTH on Sat. July 4th at 4PM or Listen Live at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org

    The "Todd's" Telling our Story from Virginia to Kentucky with Phyllis Grimes

    in History


    The Todd’s telling our Story from Virginia to Kentucky.

    Underwood vs Underwood’s Executor, 1830, Federal Records, United States Circuit Court Records, 5th Circuit Court, obtained from the Library of Virginia’s Manuscripts Collection in Richmond.

    The library is a wealth of knowledge and you can find books, periodicals, reference material and if you look real hard, you will find your ancestors hanging out in the library collections just waiting to be discovered.  Starting 20 April 1826 and ending 19 December 1830, there was a lawsuit brought by the heirs of Jane Pollard Dandridge Underwood against James Underwood, her estate executor. This lawsuit was filed by the heirs to recover the slaves and the income they had produced from James Underwood.  As a descendant of enslaved ancestors, you can only research so far before you hit a brick wall.  However, it is possible to go beyond that brick wall and find incredible information about your family’s past. 

    Phyllis Grimes is a graduate of Arizona State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies.  Phyllis held various positions working for the Maricopa County Superior Court System and is an employee for the State of Arizona as an Investigator.   Phyllis’ passion is researching her family history and she has been involved in genealogical research for over the past 20 years.  While researching her history, she has gained a greater appreciation for early American History.  She holds the position of the Family Historian/Genealogist for her family.

    What are the tools to use?  Or is it a particular way of thinking that ensures us a clear, accurate recounting of history?  Are we simply witless  pawns in a contest,subject to a strategy unknown to winner or loser?   If that is the case, if we a guileless generation of hand shakers, is it possible for us to reexamine our manuscripts with a view to better understanding the bias present?  A retelling of events captures the perspective of the story teller.  What ever this word perspective means, is beyond my ken. Is it a special blend of personality, prejudice, timing and ability? Is that the way we see the world?   Is it opinion or truth?

    Freemasonry I contend, does in a sense, bend time to reduce the impression we cannot answer some pertinent questions- better to steer away as if they do not exist, that to show we are incomplete.  We bend time because we have neglected our studies. It is not our philosophy that is weak. It is our acceptance of metaphysics in a materialistic world that mocks the imagination. 

    Does it matter?   Myth allows us to preserve the essence of allegory, taking it out of materialistic measure, taking it into metaphysics.
