At what point in time during the so-called first vision did either of the two beings Joe jr supposedly saw state that they were God?
Was the whole thing possibly an hallucination?

Of course, you know that there is no way to achieve consensus as to what the correct response ought to be.

My opinion, which I could probably be talked into changing with sufficient compulsion/reward, is that JoJu made it all up, YEARS after the alleged event took place.

So while it would actually be a kindness to say that it was a hallucination (brought on by excessive devotion to ghawd), I vote that it was just a ploy, to increase the viability of his nascent religion/cuckold-factory.

I agree
The whole thing was a made up scam and he began to believe his own bullshit which eventually led to him being killed in a gunfight

Hallucination? That would practically make an honest man out of ole Joe--actually thinking he had seen something.


Everyone who was anyone was having visions of angels during that period of religious revivalism. You were no one without one.

The Smith guy did them one better. Why settle for mere angels. So common. He did at first like everyone, but then his story got re-edited, and got A better ending. God and Jesus. Why not God and Jesus?! Of course! I mean as long as there are so many gullible people around, why not? Joe was saying, "Take it up a notch," long before Emeril Lagasse. Bam!

A glass looker famous for story telling looking for a leg up in the religion industry? You tell me.

Agreed. It would have to have been serial hallucinations because the vision kept changing. Or he was lying straight through and just changed the lies.

It seems clear which is more likely.

Could have easily been Satan and his son Myron.

After all, you wear Satans apron all the way into the Celestial Kingdom in the Temple.

I think old Joe actually saw both Gordon and Russell.

Probably scared the snot out of old Joe.

Here was Russell waving his nifty lit pen and Gordon kept muttering - I don't know we teach that.

A vision isn’t a visitation. Two different things. He was on magic mushrooms.

Just to set the record straight, I've never been to New England. And, to anyone who HAS been there, it shows.
