ANOTHER “ RIDICULOUS ” STATEMENT
  Besides the olive tree allegory
there are other statements
that are ridiculous.
 
     
  Many statements thatsounded ridiculous were later proven to be true !  
     
  As an example : When I came
off the printing press in 1830,
I contained the statement that
on this continent in the last
days, there would be a nation
that would be lifted up above
( greater than ) all other nations !
 
 

1st Nephi 13:30

Nevertheless, thou beholdest that the Gentiles
who have gone forth out of captivity, and have
been lifted up by the power of God above all
other nations, upon the face of the land which is
choice above all other lands, . . . .

 
     
  In 1830, there was not a shred of evidence that such a thing could be true.
Chicago was known as Fort Dearborn, and consisted of sixty-five inhabitants sleeping with their guns in fear ofIndians.
Yes, that was a ridiculous statement to make in 1830, but has not the United States of America become the greatest power in the world today ?
