Is Paul to Blame for the Great Apostasy?alexkoritzIMG_1258-e1437176646497

A key tenet of Mormonism is the Great Apostasy – the idea that the original church that Jesus Christ established faltered and lost many truths as the original disciples were killed or scattered. From the Mormon perspective, current Christianity is a fractured remnant of the original. Nobody knows exactly how the original church broke down, but […]

Jesus, Jehovah, and the Broken Testamentalexkoritzangry-god

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:47:11 +0000

I’ve always had issues with the Old Testament and how vastly different Jesus is from Jehovah. Mormons believe in the Old Testament, as do most Christian sects, but there is certainly nuance amongst its believers – literalists and symbolists.

What Dad Thinks About Mormonismalexkoritzdad

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:58:38 +0000

I’ve recently gone through a faith transition. The transition is by no means complete, but I have moved away from my Mormon orthodoxy and into a more nuanced, semi-believing Mormon. I previously had a podcast about Book of Mormon archeology but no longer publish that because I began to feel disingenuous. It wasn’t just historical […]

Rethinking Creation And The Biblical Timelinealexkoritzcreation

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 21:17:27 +0000

When we add up the generations of the Bible, we come to 5700-plus years. And one must remember, the 6 days of creation came BEFORE Adam. So it’s 5700 years PLUS 6 days. If we read Psalms 90:4, King David says, “One thousand years in Your (God’s) sight are like a day that passes, a […]

Reclaiming The Michigan ArtifactsalexkoritzMich4michMich3Mich6mich8Mich9

Thu, 14 May 2015 04:32:03 +0000

I recently gave a lecture at the FIRM Conference on the Michigan Artifacts—a collection of tablets and other items found in Hopewell mounds in the 1800s that contained biblical scenes and Egyptian and Cuneiform writing. Here’s a brief summary of my presentation: From 1848 to roughly 1920 artifacts were found in Hopewell Indian mounds near […]

Scriptural Support for the Book of Mormon Lands Being in North America? Yup.alexkoritzmayflowerFounding-Fathers-Americans-for-Prosperityliahonlp.nfo-o-1ecf3

OK, let’s set aside archeology and anthropology for a moment. 1 Nephi 13:30 discusses the “Gentiles who have gone forth out of captivity.” We know these gentiles are referring to the pilgrims who settled Massachusetts, and that they were fleeing Great Britain so they could obtain religious freedom. These Gentiles then would establish a latter-day […]
