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 200 years old:

Spring 1834. Joseph Smith prophesies to the members of Zion’s Camp that …

“[W]ithin three years they should march to Jackson County and there should not be a dog to open his mouth against them.”

Reed Peck Manuscript (Quincy Adams City, IL., 18 September 1839), 9.

Zion’s Camp was organized, but utterly failed; it disbanded in July.

Cholera decimated them, and the campaign did not restore the saints to their homes. They did not return as Zion’s Camp.

The Mormons continued to encounter fierce opposition, [and] never prevailed against their enemies.
