Joseph Smith Translation

kjv vs jst

SCRIPTURE: “Now, verily I say unto you my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Sidney Rigdon, saith the Lord, it is expedient to translate again; And, inasmuch as it is practicable, to preach in the regions round about until conference; and after that it is expedient to continue the work of translation until it be finished.” -Doctrine & Covenants 73:3-4. [source]

COMMENTARY: If Joseph finished the inspired translation of the Bible, why did the church decide not to use it? If he didn’t finish, why didn’t Brigham Young or any of the following prophets finish the job? Whatever the case, it seems it wasn’t all that expedient after all. Somebody should have told God. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
