Children and young adults of biblical faith are taught that Jesus is the Son of God.
But many young adults who do learn that Jesus was a man are shocked to learn that he was also a child of God who died for our sins.
The most famous example of a young adult who has been taught that this is the case is that of the late Joseph Smith.
As a teenager, Joseph Smith was a Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the first member of a worldwide church.
At the age of fourteen, Joseph was baptized and became a Mormon.
At first, Joseph believed the gospel of Jesus was true.
He then became convinced that his faith had been restored through the prophet Moroni, who was a descendant of Nephi, the founder of the Mormon faith.
However, after Joseph was ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood, Joseph became disillusioned.
He decided to quit the church and move to England.
In 1776, Joseph went to England, where he became an Englishman, but soon returned to the United States and lived in Boston for the next four years.
In 1817, he moved to New York City and opened a school for young children, which became known as the Smith School.
Joseph Smith taught that God was one God, that Jesus Christ was the Son, that all the Prophets of the Old and New Testaments were his servants, and that the Book of Mormon was true and that all scripture is true.
In the 1820s, Joseph taught that the Bible was a revelation from God.
He also believed that the Church was true, that God has a resurrected prophet named Jesus Christ, and, among other things, that the book of Mormon is true and the Book the Bible is true, a claim that he also held.
When he died in 1844, Joseph’s son, Brigham Young, took over the Smith school.
At a meeting of the church in May 1844 at Nauvoo, Illinois, Brigham and Oliver Cowdery were sitting in a circle when they were told to prepare for the “test” of coming to earth.
Oliver Cowdrey said, “This is the test.
Let’s get ready.”
In response to this call, Brigham asked, “What is the purpose of this meeting?”
The prophet answered, “Let us prepare our bodies for the coming of Jesus.”
The following day, Brigham was asked by Joseph Smith to be the next president of the new church.
He replied, “We shall not do it, for the spirit of Satan has been at work, and it has been working against us for some time.”
When Brigham and his brethren went to Nauvoure, Illinois in April 1845, Joseph and his counselors asked them if they would accept the new doctrine of the restored gospel.
The leaders of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, the chief authorities of the First Presidency, and Joseph Smith himself said no.
They asked the Twelve if they were willing to go to Carthage, Illinois and ask for the keys of the kingdom of God on the basis of a book called the Doctrine and Covenants, and if they could show that they had received the keys from God and that it was true in their hearts, that they would be permitted to hold the keys, and return to their homes.
The Quorum refused to accept the keys.
Joseph and Brigham’s counselors were also rejected by Joseph and Oliver’s wives, Emma and Lucy, for refusing to accept a gift that they said was given by God.
The next day, Joseph returned to England and began preaching the doctrine of his restored church.
In June 1846, Joseph said that the Lord had restored the gospel to the earth and that He had ordained Brigham Young as the president of this church.
After the church was organized in August 1846 in Nauvow, Illinois Joseph went on to organize the First Church of Christ.
Brigham Young became the church’s first president.
At that time, Joseph had a small group of members.
At this time, the Prophet Joseph was called to preach in England and in Canada.
After two years of preaching, Joseph sent a letter to the church stating that the Saints in England were going to go away and that he would not be in England until the people were gathered together again.
When Joseph returned from his mission, he said that he had received a vision and was going to preach the gospel in England, and he promised that he could do so whenever he was needed.
On June 18, 1847, Joseph left England and the Lord sent a messenger to him with the command that he should tell the people in the English settlements to repent of their sins and return home.
The following year, in 1848, the Lord called Joseph Smith, Sr. to preach again to the English people.
The Lord called him back to England to preach his message.
Joseph was able to teach in London, where the Church continued to flourish in the late 1840s.
In July 1849
