Some Red Flags regarding Brazil and Sealed Portion

The first and most obvious red flag in my opinion is where this group is located, Brazil. I believe in the Heartland theory aka what is known as Eastern United States. There is much on this subject out there. Rod Meldrum and Wayne May are big names in this area. This is one of my favorite videos on the subject Amberli Nelson — Jehovah’s Holy Days In the Heartland partly because I believe the Holidays in the Bible are still very important today. If you want a quick video on the subject here is one, Alma 22 Deciphered: Book of Mormon Map and Geography. Here is post I wrote regarding Book of Mormon Geography in the past, Mormon Stories – Dr Michael Coe – An Outsider’s View of Book of Mormon Archaeology .

In addition to where the Book of Mormon took place there is the fact that Joseph Smith was told to hid the Gold Plates, and he never went to Brazil. 2 Nephi 27:22 Wherefore, when thou hast read the words which I have commanded thee, and obtained the witnesses which I have promised unto thee, then shalt thou seal up the book again, and hide it up unto me, that I may preserve the words which thou hast not read, until I shall see fit in mine own wisdom to reveal all things unto the children of men.

Here is post I did regarding Scriptures about the sealed portion in Ether as it is related you may want to take a look.

[00:38:??] Greatest church (unsure but is he referencing the LDS church)
[00:39:50] We were told you will be our leader as long as you live (JS was never promised this, he was voted in as president by the people every time there was a vote on the matter.) D&C 20:65, D&C 102:6-5
[00:40:20] More pure priesthood because of his linage vs getting the priesthood by the voice of God as JS taught, Alma 9:21, 3 Nephi 11:21, 3 Nephi 11:22, D&C 84:42, JST Genesis 14:26-29, various quotes from JS
[01:06:20] can’t feel the hieroglyphics, BoM states multiple times how plates were engraved Jacob 4:1-3, Mormon 1:3

[00:13:??] incorrect interpretation of 2 Nephi 3:11 (for starters old BoM has foot notes of this being an Indian Prophet and JS preached that)
[00:17:30] they are to build the temple vs the scriptures say all the tribes are to build it.
[00:19:30] 68 lose pages (need to look into)
[00:21:40] The signs that God told Moses to show the Israelites was something Moses performed in front of them, not take our words for it.
[00:22:00] Jesus will read the rest of the sealed portion of the BoM to believers in the temple
[00:22:30] You are a second witness after hearing it from us, nothing about receiving a confirmation from God before going out and sharing and being a witness Testimony Witness 1828
[00:29:20] a session of witness correcting what they say and heard together. It is know in criminal cases when witnesses do this you don’t get the truth.
[00:29:57] incorrect description of a wheel instead a wheel according to the Polar Configuration which I believe The Ancient Skies and Symbolism Mormon Prophecy Polar Configuration Lectures Thunder Bolts Project
[00:31:15] bring together the branches of the restoration, I don’t know any time in history Christ took a corrupt church or churches to create a pure one, in addition the scriptures teach in 3 Nephi 16 especial verses 10 – 13. There are more concerning this subject.
[00:38:10] a man from the crowd: I believe this means we need to give everything to the cause compared to 1 Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
[00:39:45] no specifics in what commandments are not being followed or how to improve
[00:48:40] gold is only brought up after someone from the congregation brings up verses that describe the sword of Laban and speculation of how much that gold would cost today, but no establishment of it actually having gold.
[00:49:27] I did not understand what they were saying but I know what they were saying, during the day of Pentecost, people said they heard what Peter was saying in their own language
[00:55:40] baptism makes you a child of God, I see the scriptures teach it’s keeping the commandments of God that makes you a child of God, many are baptized that don’t keep the commandments of God
[00:59:50] preaching priesthood lines vs getting the priesthood for the voice of God, where did Alma the Elder get his priesthood?
[01:02:36] whole volume is about 4.5 inches thick (need to check on)
[01:03:33] leader bring up Christmas, I have issues with pagan holidays disguised as Christian holidays When was Jesus (Yeshua) really born
[01:11:11] leader is talking how Moroni showed the person where the plates are, BoM talks about the person finding the plates. Ether 1:4 and whoso findeth them, the same will have power that he may get the full account., Ether 15:33 … people of Limhi did find them
[01:12:32] the signs are the plates do they look authentic, shouldn’t the focus be on what the record actually says, and what the BoM says regarding it’s coming?
[01:15:07] quit your bickering, what I find funny about that is they opened it up for questions, and now the leaders are calling it bickering
[01:17:27] the characters are not engraved, I can’t feel them, BoM states multiple times about the plates being engraved Jacob 4:1-3, Mormon 1:3
[01:20:10] no specific answer when asked what specifically do we need to do to unite other than focus on what people agree on compared to call people to repentance Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
[01:31:37] when taking of the interpreters no mention of the breast plate that goes with them. When the guy was using them seeing things from the evil one. Inconsistencies in how the interpreters were broken. In addition that the stones are to be used read the plates. Ether 3:24
[01:35:11] the plates were brought through a portal, compared to 2 Nephi 27:22 that says Joseph is to hide them.
