But the family concept is under very serious attack today all over the world.—Hartman Rector Jr., “Turning the Hearts,” Ensign, May 1981, 73 Two generations later the Lord was so pained by that generation “without affection” (Moses ) that he opened the windows of heaven and cleansed the entire earth with water.If scriptures such as the Book of Mormon and Book of Abraham, which were translated accurately in the 1800s, show that events they reference as true events never really happened, then this creates a serious problem in establishing the credibility of those LDS scriptures.The LDS church teaches that the flood of Noah was a literal global and worldwide event, and that the flood was the Earth's baptism.Many of these Biblical traditions were believed as literal events by most of the general population in the 1800s as well.These include: Significant details & problems which some Latter-day Saints may not have thought about Many of the things which were commonly believed in the 1800s and even in the early part of the 1900s, by both LDS and non LDS people, are now being thought of as fables by many people.If some of the events taught as unquestionably true, literal, historical events by the LDS prophets and the Church in general can be shown to be much more likely to be fables or parables, then this presents a problem for those that claim with authority that they are literally true, historical events.
Therefore, we are all descendants of righteous Noah.
Some believing, educated saints realize that the global flood story of Noah isn't likely literally true.
They say that the early LDS prophets may have taught that but the current ones don't so it's perfectly fine to not believe in the story of Noah as a global flood.
However, the issue isn't so much that God doesn't reveal all truth, but that so many early church leaders taught (and still teach) as truth things that are wrong.
For a people so interested in truth, and a church that is run by prophets that receive God's word, how could that happen?
