Re: Student Review on BOA

I agree with church0333. This is the straw on the camel's back issue for me. Independent Non-LDS Egyptologists agree 100% on how the papyri translate. That's not all that's problematic for me though. My problem is based in large degree on JS's own words and the words of people who were there. What t...
