God’s Mystical Greeting in Joseph Smith’s First Vision

  1. Bryce,what I really appreciated in the Wentworth letter is the following that you quoted : “my mind was taken away from the objects with which I was surrounded”.
    From other accounts, particularly the one in the pearl of great price, we could believe Joseph beheld his vision with his eyes but this is clearly not the case.
    Further in Joseph Smith History we can read “the vision was opened to my mind that I could see the plates where the plates were deposited”. Truly asmembers of the church we should stretch out our minds if we want to comune with God and rely less on our own reasoning and intelligence.
