Plain And Precious Truths

The scriptures teach that over time, many of the plain and precious truths were lost from the Bible (see 1Nephi:13). But luckily, modern day revelation has restored many of those lost scriptures - like Jeremiah’s prophecy about the Pogo Ball…

14. I saw a flat pedestal with two large round stones affixed to either side.

15. Upon this pedestal I did see a fifth grader who was using it to jump up and down.

16. And it came to pass that that kid did not have any friends. Yea verily, he was known in the land as kind of a dingleberry.

(that’s a scripture I found particularly easy to liken unto myself when I was a youth)

Oh yeah, Jeremiah can get pretty deep doctrine wise. My favorite scrip is from Zechariah

"Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the Lord."

Well..its not really retranslated, but I think it might be talking about how Santa is the Anti Christ!

Jeremiah was a wise, wise man. :)

I think Ezra's response when someone told him about Nehemiah on a Pogo stick is remarkable:

"And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied" (Ezra 9:3)
