One thought on “The Truth Awakening of a General Authority: Elder Hans H. Mattsson

  1. There is no doubt that Mormonism is at a cross-roads. The unchristian and pagan blasphemy of Mormon doctrine is blatant. Who would ever deny that what Hans Mattsson was taught as a child and young man by his father and his Mormon leaders, which was taught by his grandfather to his father, and his great-grandfather to his grandfather? The Mormon prophet, Thomas Monson, and Mormon Apostles, like Jeffery Holland, can stand before millions of rank-and-file Mormon men and women and, either, not telling them that it is a total fraud; that Joseph Smith was a fraud, the Book of Mormon is 19th Century fiction, and the Book of Abraham is nothing but 100 B.C. Egyptian funerary text from the Egyptian Book of Breathings. I was deceived for 30 years, but Hans’ family has been deceived for 3 generations, and that’s because the Mormon missionaries misled Hans’ great-grandfather about polygamy and their polytheistic doctrine when they began their missionary work in Sweden in the late 19th Century.
