Mormon Wellness Project: 013: Is Emmanuel Swedenborg the father of Mormonism? Part One

In this episode Wendy continues to discuss the development of Joseph Smith’s theology and doctrines, this time examining the influence of Emmanuel Swendenborg, an 18th century scientist, mystic and theologian. The similarities can be startling and lead to more questions and fascination with the development and evolution of Mormonism. Part one lays out similarities in teachings setting the stage for further discussion on how apologists approach Joseph’s apparent “borrowings” and how a more direct, logical approach still leaves room for believers and skeptics alike.
