BRINKERHOFF'S INTRODUCTION

Notes Added by Ronnie Bennett Aubrey-Bray

  

INTRODUCTION

  

   The original research for this book was done as fieldwork for a Master of Anthropology degree from the University of Adelaide, South Australia. [1]

   It was a study of the methods by which the Mormon church [sic] creates a new 'reality' for their young missionaries. [2]

   The task was to investigate how a group of young men and women could be sent into 'the field' to preach for and defend an organization that was really undefendable in a traditional Christian context. [3] 

   We looked at the ways the Church imposed [4] its control over these young people. [5] 

   The study had the full support and cooperation of the Church hierarchy.  The First Quorum of Seventies [6] [the mission board] [7] and the Apostle of the Church, [8] Mr. Gorden [could he possibly mean GORDON?]  Hinckley, gave this task their full encouragement, because of their belief that 'anyone who really understands what the Mormon Church is all about can do nothing else but join'.

   The only important condition placed upon the study was that we tell the truth about what we might learn, [9] because they know from bitter experience that they don't always get fair treatment from their 'reviewers'. [10]

   The Mission President [11] told me that there were over 1,600 violently anti-Mormon books on collection in Salt Lake City. 

   We have done our best to report on the Church as we found it, [12] which is not to say that Mormons will be happy with the conclusions. [13] 

   Errors of omission are regretted, but since this is but a short study, [14] we have been unable to follow all the thoughts to their logical conclusions. [15]

   Knowledgeable readers [16] will be able to identify a number of points which have not been addressed at all. [17] But we have addressed all the important ones. [18]

   We owe a great debt of gratitude to a large number of very kind Mormons who took us into their homes and confidences; all being eager for us to understand them and to be known for what they are; [19] honest, hardworking, humble people worshipping their god [20] with a great zeal, confident of a good reward if they keep their faith to the end. [21]

   However, contrary to the opinion that we would become a good Mormon ourselves [22] [they even had us scheduled in for baptism, without our knowledge, at one time], [23] the more we searched into their doctrines and the foundations of the Church, [24] the more obvious became the errors of their whole system.

   We had thought that the Church was just another of the apostate daughters of Church of Rome [25] (cf. Rev. 17:5), but what opened up before us was a world of intrigue and error, masquerading as Christianity, [26]  that has ensnared millions of innocent, naive people around the world. [27]

   By comparing the truth about their founders, as revealed by people who knew them best [friends, neighbors, the courts, and various enemies both from inside and outside the Church itself]; with the 'improved version' of the Church as it is taught by them today, [28] one is led to the only conclusion possible: the [sic] Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day [29] Saints has both deluded itself and is deluding many in the world around it as they embrace its teachings.

Ronnie Bray's Notes:

  

1. I contacted this University.  They had no knowledge of Brinkerhoff or his fieldwork or his pursuit of a masters degree.

2. There is no evidence in this ‘fieldwork’ book that this subject was ever broached.

3. There is no evidence in this ‘fieldwork’ book that this subject was ever broached.

4. This question is begged.  Evidence of sinister work by Brinkerhoff.  No evidence for any such imposition is either presented or ever likely to be found within Mormonism.

5. There is no evidence in this ‘fieldwork’ book that this subject was ever broached.

6. The first Quorum of Seventy.  

7. Some members of the Seventy serve on the ‘Missionary Board’.

8. There is no such position as ‘The Apostle of the Church.’  This type of error betrays Brinkerhoff’s lack of scholastic and academic rigour, especially for one in pursuit, he alleges, of a higher degree.

9. Brinkerhoff failed abysmally to achieve this because he took the lazy man’s way and arbitrarily included the work of other Anti-Mormons. 

10. As in Brinkerhoff’s case.

11. The Mission President is not identified.

12. This has to be an outright lie unless he means as he found it reported in the works of Martin, the Tanners, and other avowed enemies of Mormonism.  This cannot be a recommendation for anyone to place his or her trust in Brinkerhoff’s ‘revelations.’

13. No one can be contented or happy with lies, unless it is Forest A Brinkerhoff.

14. Masters Degrees are not usually satisfied with ‘short studies.’  They have to have some meat and some merit and some original research.  Plundering Martin’s atrocious Kingdom of the Cults, &c, is not the avenue to a Masters Degree.  

15. Since there is no logic in Brinkerhoff’s work, this is a safe bet.  

16. Brinkerhoff apparently has his own definition of what constitutes a ‘knowledgeable reader.’  It has to be one that is not taught by Brinkerhoff and is not dependent on Brinkerhoff for what he or she knows about Mormonism.

17. Such as the TRUTH?

18. Important to whom?  Unschooled scribblers?  

19. Obviously believing you would be fair and honest, rather than – as you proved to be – treacherous.

20. ‘god’ is usually capitalised by those that know and respect Him.  Such belittlement betrays Brinkerhoff’s mile wide mean streak. 

21. A solid biblical teaching.  “If ye endure to the end … ”

22. Sloppy grammar – ‘we’ is plural, and ‘a’ good Mormon is singular, and the twain cannot be used with each other except when basic, first grade, scholarship is lacking to a notable degree.  

23. This is highly unlikely.  Baptisms are always scheduled with the candidate for baptism.  Hence, this is an extremely suspect statement. 

24. No such research is evident in this book.  Why raise in an introduction that which is not addressed in the thesis?  Just another broken promise from Brinkerhoff: just another faded hope that he might actually have done something correct in his research.  However, it proves to be simply one more disappointment among many disappointments.  

25. Pity he cannot find words to say why he would think this to be the case and mention if as a propositional statement without any further development of the strain.  Perhaps assembling material for a higher degree was too much of a strain for Brinkerhoff.  

26. He fails to show this to be the case.  Why?  What is wrong with the man?

27. Again, Brinkerhoff’s trade mark is opinionated statement without visible means of support.  Direct evidence of his mental vagrancy.  

28. It is hardly ‘compared’ in this effete body of work.  Throwing in the odd scripture that applies to Mormonism as well as Christadelphianism and then claiming that Mormons do not believe it is silly in the extreme, and dishonest to boot.  He bears false witness by the usual methods used by anti-Mormons that, for the most part, are bitterly anti-Christadelphian.

29. The name of the Church that Brinkerhoff says he is studying for a Masters Degree in Anthropology is, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” and not “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.”  Anyone capable of pursuing a Masters Degree will know the name of his subject.  Brinkerhoff repeatedly demonstrates that he is incapable of earning a decent grade in an ‘O’ Level English Language test, taken by 16 year old schoolchildren in the British educational system. 

30. Since there is no evidence presented by Brinkerhoff regarding the subjects he assays in this introduction to address, and since that which is not addressed cannot lead to anything like a conclusion, the only safe conclusion is that Brinkerhoff formed his conclusion prior to penning his introduction and did nothing to test his proposition.  Rather, he has lied and cheated his way through this book, another reason why the University of Adelaide have NO record of Brinkerhoff.  Perhaps he attended a barbecue there one time and, after the fashion of his major informant, Bogus-Doctor Walter ‘Liar’ Martin claimed to have all kinds of degrees.  He has foolishly let Martin lead him straight into the ditch that is full of those whose Bibles have been mutilated at the point where most others declare, “Thou shalt not bear false witness ... ” 

That is the only possible conclusion.

  

 Let it be clearly understood that I am, not an Anti-Christadelphian, although Brinkerhoff, who was a Christadelphian, was clearly Anti-Mormon and his book is still available from Christadelphian booksellers. 

Many of the Anti-Mormon Cults or Ministries are also fanatically Anti-Christadelphian.  For example:

  

  • Some conservative Christians in the Counter-Cult Movement (CCM) consider the Christadelphians to be a cult. [www.religioustolerance.org]
  • They differ from many other Christian denominations in other beliefs:
  •  The soul is not immortal. People lose consciousness at death and do not regain it unless they are resurrected at the time of the Final Judgment at some date in the future. 
  •  Salvation requires an adult to both accept the gospel message and be baptized. 
  •  Hell does not exist as a place of eternal torment. Those who do not attain eternal life are in a state of non-existence in the grave. 
  •  After Jesus returns to Earth in the near future, the wicked will be destroyed and believers will reign with Christ for a millennium.  
  •  Christadelphians believe that the Kingdom of God will be located on the Earth, with Jerusalem as its capital. 
  • "There are not three Gods in the Godhead; nor are there but three in manifestation; nevertheless, the Father is God and Jesus is God; and we may add, so are all the brethren of Jesus gods; and 'a multitude which no man can number."
  • Jesus is a God manifestation -- a reflection and representative of God. Jesus is fully a man. He was and remains distinctly separate from God. This agrees with the beliefs about Jesus held by the Jewish Christian church prior to the return of Paul to Judea circa 38 CE.
  •  Jesus had no existence prior to his conception circa 6 BCE by the virgin Mary and the Holy Spirit.  
  •  Jesus was born with a fully human nature. However, he lived without sin.  
  • the Holy Spirit is simply the Power of God; it is not a separate person, but is rather a: "... radiant visible power from the Father. It is an unseen power emanating from the Deity, filling all space, and by which God is everywhere present. It is the medium by which God created all things..."

As with many pseudo-Christian groups, Christadelphianism claims to follow Christian doctrines. Though they have a belief that there is only one God, Christadelphians’ doctrine is clearly non-Christian (James 2:19). One of their tenets states that the Bible is “the inerrant and infallible Word of God,” yet Christadelphianism denies: 

  

        • the doctrine of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)1 (Matthew 28:19). 
        • Jesus’ existence prior to His incarnation2 (Revelation 1:8). 
        • Jesus is God in flesh3 (Colossians 2:9).
        • Jesus died in our place for sin4 (1 Peter 2:24). 
        • the personhood and deity of the Holy Spirit5 (John 16:13-15). 
        • salvation by grace through faith alone6 (Ephesians 2:8). 
        • the immortality of the soul, that a person exists after death7 (1 Corinthians 15:42-44). 
        • the existence of the fallen angel Lucifer (Satan)8 (Luke 10:18).

  

An Ex-Christadelpian writes:

I am an ex-Christadelphian. I was born into a Christadelphian family which is the main way the Christadelphians perpetuate their faith. Occasional ‘interested friends’ are converted, however here are some things the Christadelphian’s will not tell an interested friend straight up. 

  

  • -They have been falsely predicting various world events and the return of Christ and a cataclysmic Armageddon for well over a century. Usually they put the date 10-20 years ahead of the last failed prediction. 
  • - Their dogma requires much time and study. 
  • -When a major world event happens they will link various obscure verses in the bible that ‘proves’ that their faith is correct. 
  • -Armageddon will devastate the world, however Christadelphian’s will be sheltered from it by Jesus. When I was with them they were saying they would all disappear from society and go missing right before Armageddon and people would wonder where they all went. They believe they will go to stand before God and be judged. 
  • - At Armageddon the Christadelphians would be judged by God and given long life for their faith. 
  • - God would also judge any who came into contact and had the opportunity to become a Christadelphian and any who did not would die. They also believe people who fit this description, but have died already, will be raised from the dead for the purpose of dying again. 
  • - After Armageddon a new kingdom designed by God will be located in Jerusalem and governed by the now long living Christadelphians. It will be their task to restore humanity to Gods will after Armageddon has scoured the world of hate and sin. 
  • - This is a period of 1000 years blessed service to God in a world where lambs will sleep with lions. 
  • - After this period they will be granted eternal life and angel like status. They get a bit vague as to what happens after this point. 

  

Here is what they will tell you. They are dedicated Bible students, and pacifists who strive not to sin or enter into worldly debates or causes. They are very nice and their families function harmoniously. They will rattle off verse after verse from the bible to prove their theories. 

I was once as a child a very devoted Christadelphian and terribly honest in my attempts to convert school friends. The bullying I received was terrible but it served a purpose. It made me see just how outlandish the beliefs were and how insular the Christadelphians were. I questioned my Christadelphian family and received emotional isolation, fear and guilt loading and constant erosion of self esteem. I had no where to go with these problems and could only drive them inwards. As an adult I am very much in a journey of cult recovery and that is a terrible journey to be taking. The Christadelphians are all or nothing and will rip your family from you then load you up with guilt for this if you question their faith. 

This is written with sadness and a warning to any who want to explore this faith further. Be careful. They are all very nice and educated but denial saturates and perpetuates the Christadelphians and many who leave face a cultic recovery. 

Take care

4.2 CHRISTADELPHIANS AND THE BIBLE.

  • Christadelphians claim to be faithful to the Bible and to accept its teaching in its entirety. However, an examination of their teachings reveal that this is untrue for they deny and contradict the clear teachings of the Bible. While they may sincerely believe they have the truth, they believe a lie, for they deny some of the most fundamental doctrines of the Bible. Their defective view of the Bible is clearly shown in their denial of the existence of a personal devil. They regard the devil as simply the personification of evil. Robert Roberts said with regards to the existence of the devil: 

  

  • "The popular doctrine of a personal devil has no foundation in truth, but is the hideous conception of the heathen mind, inherited by the moderns from the mythologies of the ancients and incorporated with Christianity by those men with corrupt minds who Paul predicted would pervert the truth."

  

  • One of the most serious aspect of this denial is that it completely undermines the reliability of Scripture. How are we, for example, to understand the temptations of Jesus? Are we to think that the writers of the Gospels were wrong when they indicate that Satan actually spoke to Jesus and tempted Him? The Christadelphian's rejection of the existence of Satan demonstrates a certain contempt for the Scriptures because the Bible clearly reveals that the devil is an evil spirit who literally exists. The book of Job speaks of Satan in terms of a real spirit who spoke with God, and accused Job of only loving God for what he could get from Him. Who can read the book of Job and not conclude that there is a personal devil? According to the Bible, Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, during which time Satan actually spoke to Him and tempted Him to do evil. The Bible records that Jesus conducted a conversation with Satan. It is obvious that the Christadelphians do not take the teachings of Scripture seriously, but distort them to fit with their own theories. The Bible leaves us with no question at all regarding the reality of the literal existence of a spirit being called Satan. By their denial of the personality of Satan, the Christadelphians demonstrate how little regard they really have for the integrity of God's word.

  

4.3 CHRISTADELPHIAN'S VIEW OF THEIR OWN ORGANISATION

  

  • Christadelphians regard their own organisation as the unique organisation of God in this world. In their understanding only Christadelphians will be saved. Unlike Jehovah's Witnesses, the Christadelphians do not have any central organisation. Each local congregation, or "ecclesia" as it is known, is run by its own male members and is autonomous.

  

4.4 CHRISTADELPHIAN'S BELIEF ABOUT GOD. 

  

  • As pointed out earlier one of the characteristic feature of the cults is their defective view of God. Among the most fundamental problems of the Christadelphians is their rejection of the orthodox Christian doctrine of the Trinitarian nature of God. They, like the Jehovah's Witnesses, are Unitarian in belief and resurrect the ancient heresy of Arianism. 

  

  • Christadelphians reject the doctrine of the Trinity.

  

  • According to the Christadelphians, God is only one person and one being. In their understanding only one person can be described as divine. Robert Roberts said: 

  

  • "The endeavour is to show that they are not three co-equal powers in one, but powers of which one is the head and source of the others. The Father is eternal and underived, the Son is the manifestation of the Father in a man begotten by the Spirit, the Holy Spirit is the localisation of the Father's power."

  

  • As the above quote indicates, Christadelphians are Unitarian in their belief. They do not accept that Jesus Christ is equal and co-eternal with the Father. Nor do they accept the personality of the Holy Spirit, but regard Him as a mere force - "a localisation of the Father's power." They also misrepresent orthodox Christianity on the subject of the Trinity, suggesting that the Church teaches three deities, which is untrue. The orthodox teaching of the Church is that there is One God, who is comprised of three distinct persons.

  

  • Christadelphians reject the deity of Christ.

  

  • Christadelphians are also seriously defective in their understanding of Jesus Christ. They deny that Jesus existed in any form before He was born to the virgin Mary. According to their teaching, He is not God, nor did He have any existence prior to His supernatural birth. They completely dismiss the many clear references in the Scriptures regarding Jesus Christ's pre-existence, (e.g. John 8:58; John 17:5). Robert Roberts said that Jesus was simply a "manifestation of the Father in human form."10 According to their teaching, Jesus did not become the Christ until His baptism. They believe that Jesus, up until his baptism, was simply the body that God had prepared for the Christ to indwell.11 They believe that the Spirit descended upon Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan, and took possession of Him. This was the anointing which constituted him as the Christ, and which gave Him the superhuman powers which He exhibited during His ministry.12 The teaching that Jesus became the Christ at His baptism is not new, it was a heresy that arose in the early church. It is contrary to Scripture, since Jesus' baptism is not presented in Scripture as the place wherein He was constituted the Christ, but was simply to "fulfil all righteousness" (Matthew 3:15). A Christadelphian tract entitled, One Bible - many churches - does it matter? says: 

  

  • "The Christadelphian accepts fully the Bible story of the virgin birth, and honours Jesus as Son of God, but not as God the Son."

  

  • According to the Christadelphians Jesus is not God the Son. While they do believe that we may honour and adore Him, they do not believe that we can worship Him as God, but rather we honour Him because of the power which God gave to Him, and because He is exalted above all.

  

  • Christadelphians deny the Personality of the Holy Spirit.

  

  • Christadelphians deny the personality of the Holy Spirit, regarding Him as a force but not as a personal being. They describe the Holy Spirit as follows: 

  

  • "...radiant invisible power from the Father. It is an unseen power emanating from the deity, filling space, and by which God is everywhere present. It is the medium by which God creates all things ... in the power by which He holds the whole universe"13.

  

  • In this quote you will notice that the Holy Spirit is referred to as it, not as Him. They do not believe that the Holy Spirit is a personal being. Whereas, the Scriptures do present the Holy Spirit as a personal Being. It is difficult to understand how anyone can read John, chapter 16, and still deny the personality of the Holy Spirit. 

  

  • Christadelphians also deny that the Holy Spirit is active today. According to Robert Roberts, the apostles were the recipients of the operation of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost and it is given to none in the present day. He said, "The power of continuing the manifestation doubtless died with the apostles."14 A magazine published by the Christadelphians in 1874 called The Christadelphian said with respect to the Holy Spirit:

  

  • "We have no power to appoint rulers such as they had in the first century, for the Holy Spirit is not officially working with us as then."15

  

  • According to this quote, Christadelphians believe that the Holy Spirit is only given at certain times for special purposes. In their understanding, the Holy Spirit was active in the early days of the Christian Church, but has played no part in the Church since that time. Yet the New Testament makes it quite clear that the Holy Spirit was given to the Church permanently, not just for the lifetime of the apostles. No one can be converted or grow in the Christian life apart from the work of the Holy Spirit. So their teaching regarding the Holy Spirit is completely contrary to the Scriptures.

  

4.5 CHRISTADELPHIAN'S DEFECTIVE VIEW OF THE ATONEMENT. 

  

  • Christadelphians deny the orthodox teaching of the atonement. They regard the death of Jesus on the cross as a representation of how mankind deserved to be treated. They do not regard Jesus as dying in our place. According to their teaching, our sin was not laid on Jesus, sin already existed in Him because of His human birth and His death was not an atonement for our sins. Their denial of the atonement is also confirmed by W.C. Irvine, a prominent Christadelphian, he wrote,

  

  • "The death of Christ was not to express the wrath of offended Deity, but to express the love of the Father in a necessary sacrifice of sin, that the law of sin and death which came into force by the first Adam might be nullified in the second in a full discharge of its claims through a temporary surrender to its power; after which immortality by resurrection might be acquired, in harmony with the law of obedience. This sin is taken away, and righteousness established."16

  

  • The Bible teaches that God actually punished His own Son in our place. Jesus acted as our substitute, dying for our sins. As Isaiah says: "The Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6) And the apostle Peter says, "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." (1 Peter 3:18) 

  

4.6 CHRISTADELPHIAN'S DEFECTIVE DOCTRINE OF SALVATION

  

  • A common feature of these cults is their defective and unbiblical view of salvation. Christadelphians prove themselves to be a cult by their teaching that salvation is based upon human works, rather than upon the finished work of Christ. According to the them, man is saved by his own merit. They have no time for the doctrine of justification by faith alone. This is readily seen in a comment made by the founder Dr. John Thomas: 

  

  • "Immortality is conditional upon keeping certain commandments, being immersed, believing on the Son of Man."17 

  

  • You will note that according to Dr. Thomas, immortality is conditioned by:

  

  • 1. Obeying the commandments of Christ.
  • 2. Being baptised by total immersion.
  • 3. Believing on the Son of Man. 

  

  • Dr. Thomas clearly presented salvation as dependent on man's effort to obey the commandments of Christ. The Christadelphians do not believe that eternal life is a free gift, rather they regard salvation as a reward for being immersed and for keeping certain commandments. The Christadelphian doctrine of salvation is the complete opposite of the biblical doctrine of salvation. The Bible teaches a doctrine of salvation by grace, not by works. It teaches that faith is a gift which God gives to the elect (Eph. 2:8,9). Christadelphianism is a religion which presents man as capable of saving himself. No one was ever saved by their good works, otherwise Jesus died needlessly. Good works are the result of salvation not the cause of salvation (Eph. 2:10). Salvation cannot be earned, it is God's free gift, entirely undeserved on our part. 

  

4.7 CHRISTADELPHIAN'S DEFECTIVE ESCHATOLOGY. 

  

  • Another common feature of many of these cults is a defective view of the doctrine of the Second Coming of Christ. Christadelphians have a particularly interest in future events. Like the Jehovah's Witnesses they major on prophecy. Much of their advertising deals with this subject. Despite Jesus' declaration in Matthew 24:36, that no one knows the day and hour of Christ's return except the Father, they persist in trying to work out dates for the Second Coming of Christ. They have repeatedly predicted the outbreak of Armageddon. Like the Jehovah's Witnesses, they have often come unstuck with their prophesies, and so have been forced to revise their theories at a later date. In 1866 the Christadelphians published a pamphlet entitled, Ambassador of the Coming Age, which said: 

  

  • "It is pretty certain that Jesus will return within the lifetime of the present generation."18

  

  • Jesus did not come as they had predicted. They failed to understand what Jesus said to His disciples: "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has fixed by His own authority." (Acts 1:7) 

  

  • Christadelphians have a mistaken view of the kingdom of Christ. They see it, not so much as having already come and being manifested in the rule of God in men's hearts, but rather as a visible kingdom that will take place after Christ's second coming. In their understanding Christ' is not now King and will not be until after His Second Coming. In their teaching only Christadelphians will have reached the required standard to enter His kingdom when it comes. Only they will be resurrected and will gain immortality. Christadelphians anticipate the day when they will rule with Christ in His kingdom. They maintain that His Kingdom will be worldwide, with its administration centred in Palestine. They believe that only Christadelphians and Jews have any hope of the resurrection.

  

  • This view of the kingdom is entirely contrary to the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. For the Bible teaches that Christ's kingdom came in power on the day of Pentecost (Matt. 16:28). A cursory reading of the New Testament clearly reveals that Christ's kingdom has already come. 

  

4.8 CONCLUSION.

  

  • As we continue our study of these cults you will realise that they have many features in common. Christadelphians, as we have seen, depart from orthodox Christian teaching in numerous ways. They deny the Trinity, they deny the deity of Christ and the personality of the Holy Spirit. They have a seriously deficient view of the atonement and also believe in a salvation by human merit. You will discover that these are common doctrinal aberrations among the cults.

Everyone is hated by someone in the 'normal' Christian world.  More's the pity.  Does anyone remember 'Love one another as I have loved you!'?

CONCLUSION

Perhaps Brinkerhoff's attitude to Mormonism is understandable for like other hostile critics his religious faith is exercised in another denomination. This appears to make him unable to value any other religious system. And this inability to find value in the belief system of another is at the root of religious persecution. But this does not excuse historical inaccuracy in the course of persecution. The introduction to his book states: 

The original research for this book was done as fieldwork for a Master of Anthropology degree from the University of Adelaide, South Australia. It was a study of the methods by which the Mormon Church creates a new 'reality' for their young missionaries. The task was to investigate how a group of young men and women could be sent into 'the field' to preach for and defend an organization that was really undefendable in a traditional Christian context. 

His method of studying Mormonism through the eyes of its enemies is even more surprising in the light of his statement that

The study had the full support and cooperation of the Church hierarchy. The First Quorum of Seventies (the mission board) and the Apostle of the Church Mr. Gordon Hinckley, gave this task their full encouragement...The only important condition placed upon the study was that we tell the truth about what we might learn, because they know from bitter experience that they don't always get fair treatment from their 'reviewers'. The Mission President told me that there were over 1,600 violently anti-Mormon books on collection in Salt Lake City. 

In spite of his pretensions and opportunities Brinkerhoff has settled for the production of just another anti-Mormon book. His work serves only to sustain the machinery of hatred which is essential to the continuing persecution of Mormons and Mormonism by attacking the character of Joseph Smith.
