"You are a follower of Joseph Smith not Jesus the Christ. If it wasn’t for Joseph Smith there would not be Mormons."
No, Mormons do not follow Joseph Smith. We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship Jesus Christ. And yes, Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, which is the word of God. That is why we have The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is the one true church, restored on the Earth BY Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I don't know why you guys always think we worship Joseph Smith. Yes of course if it wasn't for Joseph Smith there would not be Mormons, as you say. But that is because it is through Joseph Smith that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ restored the true church! We have the Book of Mormon and other latter day revelation that helps shed light on the Bible and make sense of it all. I invite you to read the Book of Mormon and study, ponder and pray and ask God if it is true. It will change your life!
