The Bible vs. Joseph Smith Reviews
I commend Mr. Gifford for his willingness to put his beliefs to the test God has provided for us,Deut 18.
The combination of some academics in the film to debate religion seemed flawed. Then to invite a friend over who is a mormon and destroy his faith in front of a camera is cowardly. There were two interviews included with mormon scholars, but these were only short? Why were these men not interviewed rather than a friend?
Additionally, in it, it claims that the Bible is a valid historical document and that logically you could never follow Smith. But is faith logical? Believing in that which is not seen? No. It said that his friend is still a mormon, and this is why he is, because he believes in things unseen.
Oh, and the music gets old when it's on repeat for the whole of the 2 hours. But it is ponderous.
But why is it a debate between the Bible and Smith? Why isn't it a debate between Christianity and Mormonism? I think this would be a much more interesting topic, but it might be too extensive to debate.
It was persuasive against mormonism in the context provided, but it did it in the same manner that made Michael Moore successfully manipulative. Even though Jesus may have been a historical figure as contained in the Bible, that does not make persuade me to believe in the dogma he professes and the fantastic miracles that are in it.
My recommendation is "Don't waste your time watching this distorted movie", if you want to find out the truth about the Mormon religion, the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, or anything else...Research it yourself! Don't take someone's word for it...Find out for yourself!
