isn't it all about the truth?

any changes that have appeared in animals was the result of chuck noriss administering beatdowns on said animals and permanently altering their biology. scientists try to cover this up with filthy lies.
Prophet Joseph Smith was teaching that truth is FACTS.
Evolution is FACT. It means that evolution is part of the TRUTH.
I accept all truth wherever it can be found. If there is the truth in hell I want to know it and I will accept it.

Are you saying that Joseph smith was teaching the truth as HE saw it? If so it still does make what he taught a fact.

I'm waiting for the summary of Alla about the Mormons doctrine . The most important points summarized.
Alla failure to comply is his or her admission about the lack of knowledge of Mormons doctrine . That also would make Alla a fake Mormon , thus proving some members accusing Alla of being a fake Mormon right.Yes
Again, I remind you that I am not the one who say that LDS Doctrine makes no sense. Smile
Could you be so kind and answer this question: "Do you know LDS Doctrine"?

It looks like Jesus (along with other Christian leaders) had a little problem with something called "truth" too.[/quote]
I assume Jesus read His scriptures. I assume followers of Christ read their scriptures.
Their scriptures are saying that Jews had false prophets among them. Their scriptures are saying that Jews were slaying God's prophets by the sword.
Their scriptures are also saying that Jews had books of the prophets that they do NOT have now. May be Jesus had those scriptures in the 1st century. May be there awere names of those Jews who killed prophets of God.
I do not need a proof that many parts of their scriptures are true. I am already convinced they are true.
So, Jews were replacing true prophets with false prophets. They were slaying them with the sword. They were breaking the covenants.
Now you are claiming that they are the ones who understand those prophets correctly. Do you have any proof? Smile

Cheers.

He was teaching true principles as he UNDERSTOOD them.

How would we know if his understanding is accurate? Someone can understand something totally wrong.

You simply choose to believe.

The path to truth is to pick a person (or organisation) as an authority. Such as Joseph Smith, or the pope or the Catholic church or your mum, or your president/prime minister or whoever. Give them a title such as prophet or god or whatever.

Then just believe everything they tell you, no matter how ridiculous or miraculous or special it seems.

At no point should you EVER invoke any critical thinking towards what THE Authority claims.

It is your job to accept, follow and propagate.

Truth is whatever The Authority tells you. You don't need proof, you just need to believe it.

This is the path to happiness, or so it seems.

I don't believe that God would let His prophet to teach the things that are not true. It is possible that prophet does not understand everything God reveals him. This is what I meant.
About your question: how would we know if his understanding is accurate?
Well, first step is to have a sincere desire and real intent to know if what he taught was true.
