One Faith

I read every word and processed every sentence in the non-fiction eye-popping book about the emergence of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) beginning in the early 1800's. The book, pictured above, is about Joseph Smith starting the religion, the process of writing The Book of Mormon, plural marriages, the growth of the religion and the movement of its followers in the Southwest, Mexico, and Canada.

A few self-proclaimed prophets emerged from within the believers with instructions from God to kill certain people. Gruesome murders were carried out by a few prophets. Some were captured, convicted and now are inside the prison system.

An interesting presentation of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) was put forth in expert testimony at the trials of brothers Dan and Ron Lafferty.

This is a very interesting and alarming book you may want to read.

Return here on Wednesday, November 29 for an update.

Have a good day!

In future blog updates I plan to write about my vision and concept about how to staff the armed forces of the United States. Stay tuned.
