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…
KIRTLAND LAND INVESTORS WILL BE RICH: 6 April 1837. “He then closed at about 4 P.M. by uttering a prophesy saying this place [Kirtland, Ohio] must be built up, and will be built up, and every brother that would take hold and help secure and discharge those [land] contracts that had been made, should be rich” (LDS Messenger & Advocate, page 488).
Nobody became rich investing in Kirtland land contracts. Most of those involved in the Kirtland land speculation, encouraged by Joseph Smith, lost money.
Joseph Smith himself went bankrupt and had to flee his creditors.
