Meanwhile, in the process, John the Baptist appeared, ordained these two unbaptized men to the Aaronic priesthood and had them baptize each other and then RE-ordain one another. Somewhere along the line Joe began getting "revelations," became a prophet (false), and organized the Mormon Church.

    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Yes, actually I posted here for several years. I've worked in the apologetic field since the 70's - which dates me. I directed a ministry dedicated to cult apologetics back in NJ. Since moving West, I've taken a particular interest in Mormonism. My Bible teacher was Walter Bjorck who worked with Dr. Martin - he is the one who interested me in the subject. I'm an evangelical Anglican (left the Episcopalians after they were overrun by John Spong and his friends), attend a United Episcopal Church and Calvary Chapel.
