The God of the Bible & the god of Mormonism

322 years before Josiah was born, a prophet (unnamed) in I Kings 13 predicted that someday, a man named "Josiah" would come and destroy some altars at Bethel..... 

348 years later, Josiah came and destroyed some altars in Bethel, and while leaving that area, stopped at a grave, and asked whose it was, the people of that area had passed along that prophecy (for the book of the law had been lost for many years) and they told Josiah of that prophecy...

It showed to Josiah the foreknowledge of God, for God had had that prophecy made, long before the birth of Josiah, and Josiah's mother and father did not even know of the prophecy, and Josiah, until he had done so, did not know of it...

The God we worship, does have foreknowledge... And can do such things...

But let me add another story to this one...  Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon, and wanted Christians to think that this book was the plan of salvation, and wanted to convince Christians that it was a necessary part of God's plan. 

So, he also took the Bible, went to the book of Genesis, and added a verse to chapter 50... It reads:

"And that seer I bless... and his name shall be after the name of his father,... for the thing which the Lord shall bring forth by his hand shall bring my people unto salvation." (From Gen. 50:33, Joseph Smith Translation)

That additional verse was added after Joseph Smith wrote the book of Mormon, and long, long after Moses wrote the book of Genesis... and claims to be 'inspired' of God... 

But our God has foreknowledge, and could have had Moses insert that verse, if it were truly of God. That would have been evidence for Mormonism... The readers of Genesis in their version are likely misled to the idea that Moses did write it, and that gives them credence to believe that the Book of Mormon was long ago predicted and meant to come, by God... 

The god of Mormonism did not have foreknowledge to know what would happen when Joseph Smith Jr came, and had to add the verse later, after the heretical addition to the Bible was penned... But... The God of Josiah, knew that Josiah would come, had it prophesied, written down in I Kings 13:1-4. And later fulfilled in II Kings 23:14-18... 

The story of Josiah shows God's foreknowledge and omniscience... The story of Joseph Smith Jr. shows deceit, adding to the Word of God, and a taking for granted that mankind is gullible and easily misled...
