I have been doing some studies of the history of different religions and have found some striking similarities. One is the vision of angels. Now Galatians 1:8 says But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Now when one looks at the title page of the Book of Mormon you will see “another Testament” written. The missionaries will tell you that God wrote one Testament for the Western hemisphere and one for the Eastern. But I would like to contend that it is not another Testament but another Koran. The first thing to notice is that both Joseph Smith and Mohammed had a vision of an angel. Both of these men where active polygamists. Both said the angel told them marry a woman who was not eligible. Both these men built up armies and were charged with treason and insurrection. And both acquired tremendous wealth by their revelations. Joseph Smith would go so far as to have other men’s wife’s to cover his polygamy! Joseph Smith never completely left his occultic past nor dis Mohammed leave his idolatry. He continued to worship Allah the moon god and to require pilgrimage to the Kaab. To this day Muslims still bow down and kiss a holy rock and holy shrines. This of course is just a surface study but the information is out there for you to find. And if you want another connection to an angel appearance Loyola saw an angel in a cave while worshipping Mary and started the Jesuit branch of the Catholic Church. I hope this gives you a stimulus for further study.
