Historical Sketch of Mormonism
Rev. D, J. McMillan, D. D.
ICmlinxM fnm tatt tint.)
Joseph Smith concealed himself
behind a curtain, which was a bed
blanket, stretched diagonally across
one corner of his mother's kitchen,
and there road what ho claims was a
translation of the engravings on the
plates, to a Berlin who sat out side the
blankot and wroto what he read.
Thus was the Book of Mormon pro
duced. Eloven men testified that
they aaw tho plates, but nono of them
were ablo to reud anything that was
on them, so we have only Joseph's
word for what thoy contained. Thus
was tho foundation of the Mormon
church laid. Immediately after the
translation of the Book of Mormon
tho church was organized. At tho
first their doctrines were simple,
vaguo, and apparently harmless, in
doed it wus a matter of but little im
portauco with thorn, what a man be
lieved. so lonir as he became an nd
herant, and promised submission to
me priesthood. Joseph bmitli was
oapuseu ana onlainou by Uliver Low
dery, then Oliver Cowdery was bap
tised and onlained br Joseph Smith,
Thus waa gospel authority, which
Joseph says was taken from the
earth iu the early history of the
Christain Church because of its wick
edness, restored through this latter
dar nronhet. In October the num
ber had inceased to about seventy-
lire. Dunns? this month Purlev P.
Pratt, with three other elders who
baa been admitted to the church,
started on a mission to the Indians.
On their war westward tlinv viaitfwl
Sidney Rigdon, who at once became
an enthusiastic convert. He said it
was that light whioh he had Ions: ex
pected to break forth from the divine
mind. Of course the whole of Mr.
Rigdon's peculiar church at Mentor
was at once absorbed. Proceeding
westward, these elders reached Kirt
and, Ohio, where they baptised 130
in four weeks, and before the next
spring the number increased to about
When the Mormon church was or
ganlzed, only fivq of the eleven wit
nesses joined it, Oliver Cowdery, one
of these, and the one that acted as
scribe part of the time, was cut off
Irom the church a tew year after,
and turned over to the buffetings of
Satin, for lying,, theft and living in
open adultery with a servant girl.
He afterwards died a miserable
drunkard. Martin Harris, another of
tho five who acted also as scribe part
of the time, was cut off for wicked
ness, and Joseph Smith, the prophet,
said that Hams was uot fit for de
cent people to notice. Two others of
the original live, and witnesses of the
plates, were, years afterwards, seut
to juil for immorality and crime and
then shot by a mob who. broke into
It is a significant fact that in New
York, where the church originated,
where tho Smiths lived, the church
made little progress nor did it attain
respectable standing, but in the re
gion where Rigdon had been prepar
ing the way, the progress waa rapid
aud the growth permanent.
Kirtland became headquarters of
the church, where a temple was
erected at the cost of $40,000. But
the establishment of a fraudulent
bank led to their being driven from
the community by the indignant
citizens. According to Smith's own
testimony he and Rigdon had to fly
from justice at midnight.
Three kinds of charges followed
Smith everywhere aud to his dearh;
viz, immorality, to cover up which
the doctrine of spiritual marriages
and the practice of polygamy began
to be justified under certain restric
tions as early as 1830. A second
charge invariably followed him was
dittonetty in tho matter of mouey,
as tho Kirtland bank scandal shows.
A third was theft. To justify his
acta he asserted that the Mormons
were God's peculiar people, to whom
it was God a purpose to give the
whole world and all that is therein,
"for the meek shall inherit the earth,"
and the Mormons wore the only meek
people. It was not stealing, there
fore, to take what belongs to one's
self. Any one who associated with
the Mormons as late as twenty years
ago, heard this justification of theft
urged again aud from the pulpit as
well as iu private life.
