Description

A Biography of False Prophet Warren Steed Jeffs and a History of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) by Robert Alan King is a biography that examines Warren Jeffs and the history of the FLDS Church. It is a historical account of polygamy, adultery, and child molestation in the name of God.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) owns walled and fenced compounds across the United States and Canada complete with watchtowers in an effort to keep evil outsiders from entering and isolate their righteous followers within. Their supposed prophet Warren Steed Jeffs towers 6'3" with short brown hair and wide brown eyes often peering out from a pair of wire-rimmed glasses. Though Jeffs is now doing a life sentence in a Texas prison, he still controls the FLDS sect with approximately 10,000 followers and has at least 77 wives still under his control.
This book will tell the strange story of the FLDS by examining its original roots in the Mormon Church and then explain how it formed from the major faction of Mormon fundamentalists after the 1890 church manifesto that banned polygamy. We will examine the sect's growth and early years as it morphed from a priesthood council of seven men to a one-man prophet dictatorship. The three major splits within the faction will also be discussed.

At last we will travel along with the pedophile Warren Jeffs and witness his sexual perversion and lust for power as he takes away the innocence of young children and rips apart the families of his followers under the guise of ensuring salvation of his flock in the name of God. You will also be able to watch the inability of law enforcement to effectively lock Jeffs up for good until hoax phone calls from a woman in Colorado provides them with the break that finally uncovers the evidence they need to put him away in prison for the rest of his life.

Introduction

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) owns walled and fenced compounds across the United States and Canada complete with watchtowers in an effort to keep evil outsiders from entering and isolate their righteous followers within. Their supposed prophet Warren Steed Jeffs towers 6'3" with short brown hair and wide brown eyes often peering out from a pair of wire-rimmed glasses. Though Jeffs is now doing a life sentence in a Texas prison, he still controls the FLDS sect with approximately 10,000 followers and has at least 77 wives still under his control.

This book will tell the strange story of the FLDS by examining its original roots in the Mormon Church and then explain how it formed from the major faction of Mormon fundamentalists after the 1890 church manifesto that banned polygamy. We will examine the sect's growth and early years as it morphed from a priesthood council of seven men to a one-man prophet dictatorship. The three major splits within the faction will also be discussed.

At last we will travel along with the pedophile Warren Jeffs and witness his sexual perversion and lust for power as he takes away the innocence of young children and rips apart the families of his followers under the guise of ensuring salvation of his flock in the name of God. You will also be able to watch the inability of law enforcement to effectively lock Jeffs up for good until hoax phone calls from a woman in Colorado provides them with the break that finally uncovers the evidence they need to put him away in prison for the rest of his life.

As in any bibliography or history there are always some discrepancies due to differences of opinion, inaccurate available information, and contrary accounts in the memory of different people. I have done my best to narrow down the facts as much as possible with actual dates and references for those interested in a more thorough study. For those looking for a basic understanding of Warren Jeffs and FLDS Church, this book should provide you with enough facts and details to tell the story.

Mormonism Roots

The religion of Mormonism is based on a series of spiritual visions Joseph Smith supposedly experienced in 1920s. He also translated the Book of Mormon from supposed golden plates that he unearthed at the instruction of an angel and was then forced to bury them again. Over the years that followed, Smith began to formulate what he considered as a restoration of the early Christian church, officially founding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on April 6, 1830.¹ It is believed by most scholars that Joseph Smith and others in the Mormon Church began to practice polygamous relationships in secret during the early 1930s.

Under the guise of spiritual revelation and supposed religious significance, Joseph Smith and other leaders at this time were basically carrying on promiscuous affairs with duped women who were usually not even taken into the home as a genuine wife might be. As the practice began receiving attention from the public, the Mormon Church faced opposition and criticism but denied the claims. Joseph Smith was eventually jailed for alleged treason charges against the state of Illinois. On June 27, 1844, while awaiting trials, Smith was assassinated at the Carthage Jail by a mob.

In 1852, the second Mormon Church President Brigham Young delivered a sermon publicly acknowledging the practice of polygamy and it became an officially accepted doctrine of the church. After this there was extensive opposition to the practice and the Republican Party even made it a major part of their platform at their first national convention in 1856. In 1862, the Morill Anti-Bigamy Act was passed by congress, making bigamy illegal in U.S. territories like Utah.² Yet, Young and the Mormon Church felt that polygamy was permissible
