Many Mormons Are Unaware of the Messy Details of LDS Church History

Posted: 11/24/2014 12:14 pm EST Updated: 11/24/2014 12:59 pm EST

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been in the headlines recently after a series of essays were posted on the church's "Gospel Topics" website that detailed much about the its history with polygamy (see here, here, and here). Most notably, these essays included admissions that the Church's founder Joseph Smith had up to 40 wives (at least one as young as 14) and that among these were women who were already married to other men.

While most of this information was not new to academics and scholars of Mormon history, much was likely surprising news to many of the Church's rank and file membership. While the institutional Mormon educational curriculum does contains some references to Joseph Smith's "plural marriages," full details about the extent and nature of these marriages, including his experiments with polyandry, are absent from the standard Sunday School curriculum (see here and here for an overview). Thus, these were surprising - if not shocking - revelations by the LDS Church to many of its members.

Published 29 November 2014 | Christian Today staff writer

Museum of the Bible Chairman Dr Jerry Pattengale and Hobby Lobby President Steve Green developed the course to coincide with the museum, which will open in Washington DC in 2017.

"We have a unique value proposition to offer with this curriculum, given our work with scholars, The Green Collection's rare biblical texts and artifacts that currently number more than 44,000, and the museum," Pattengale said earlier this year.



Pastor's Stint On The Street Opens Eyes to Plight of Homeless

By Harry Smith

The pastor of a Sacramento megachurch had already raised the money he sought for a program to provide food and shelter to the homeless. But Rick Cole, who began the fundraiser with a stunt where he would live on the streets, couldn't leave after only a few days. So, he spent the next two weeks living life as the homeless do — and the experience opened his eyes.
