Joseph Smith claimed to have been visited by over 20 angels. Why so many? Who else has made such a claim?
These visitations include: God the Father and Jesus in the grove, Moroni’s first visit at Joseph’s home, Moroni’s second visit at Joseph’s home, Moroni’s third visit at Joseph’s home, Moroni’s fourth visit outside in the field, yearly visits from Moroni, Moroni giving back the Urim and Thummim, Adam, Abraham, Seth, Enoch, Isaac, Jacob, Raphael, Gabriel (Noah), Nephi, Mormon, Alma, the Three Nephites, John the Beloved, and a heavenly messenger.
Isn’t each claimed visitation just one more opportunity to be exposed?
