FAILED PROPHECIES: The Prophet-less JS…
LDS faithful immediately know you’re mentioning Joseph Smith when you speak the two words “The Prophet.” Yet, we’re hard-pressed to find a singular fulfilled prediction by this charlatan.
This unfulfilled prophecy of Joseph Smith is nearing 200 years old…
ENEMIES WILL BE SHAMED: “Wherefore, confound your enemies; call upon them to meet you both in public and in private; and inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made manifest. Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons against the Lord. Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you—there is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; And if any man lift his voice against you he shall be confounded in mine own due time” (D&C 71:7-10).
The Mormons are generally reluctant to discuss their religion with anyone but prospective converts, but, when they have been willing to meet with their critics and debate, they have not been particularly able to make their opponents’ shame manifest.
The Missourians and the residents of Hancock County, Illinois, who formed weapons against the Mormons, were successful in driving them out.
