My name is Samuel Jeppsen. I’ve been a cop for 24 years. About 10 years into my
career, Jeff, an ex-cop and friend of mine, told me something I never forgot. He
said being a cop is like being on a twenty year mission for Christ. He said we
can do things for Christ by doing things for people that no one else can do,
simply because of the hat we wear. His words reminded me of a cartoon I once
saw. It was about a little boy who was saying his prayers before going to bed.
He asked God to protect him while he slept. The cartoon showed a burglar looking
in at the boy as he was saying his prayers. When the boy was finished, he jumped
into bed and asked himself, “I wonder if God ever hears our prayers?” The next
part of the cartoon showed two cops arresting the burglar outside the window of
the little boy while he slept, unaware that anything had taken place at all.
“Remember, ...we work for God!”
Lt. Commander Vernon J. Geberth, NYPD
As Jeff finished what he was telling me, I thought, how true! In fact, how true
for everyone, no matter what field they are in. Because of the hat you wear, you
can do things for Christ, by doing things for others, that no one else can do.
Wanting to do things for others was part of my strong motivation for becoming a
cop. One of the things I’ve come to learn in over 24 years of law enforcement
experience, and it seems to be a standard throughout is,
he who tells his story
first ...gets most of the belief!
In other words, he who gets to the officer first and tells his side of the
story, has a greater chance of being believed. Even though that is not true all
of the time, it is true more times than not. When an officer walks up on a
scene, after the first story he hears, he usually has his mind made up on what
happened, who did it, and who’s going to jail. Yet, we are trained
investigators. We are trained to listen to both sides of the story impartially.
We are trained to weigh the facts before we make a decision. And to a large
degree, we do that. But I constantly see the evidence of, he who tells his story
first gets most of the belief! We the police, have the tendency to get both
sides of the story from the same side. Isn’t it ridiculous to be that way?
Trained investigators being prejudiced by their first impression! Surely the
police are not that way! Well, guess what? ...We are! Do you know why we are
that way? Because we are people and people are that way. We bring with us into
these uniforms all of our human weaknesses, prejudices, hatred, immaturity etc.
and all too often our human weaknesses show through.
My point in telling you this about cops, is to tell you that because of your
human weaknesses, you are the same way. You too, have a tendency to judge both
sides from the same side. You too, have the tendency to believe the first story
you’ve been told. How many times has someone told you something and by the end
of their tale, you shared their same feelings? How many times have you judged a
situation based on only one side of the story? This book is about getting the
other side of the story as well.
This book is the result of a five year project. It is a summation of a three
year in-depth investigation. It deals with the greatest investigation of my
life. Because a court of law requires evidence that is credible, neutral, fair
and accurate, I have tried very hard to produce evidence that would meet these
requirements. In my efforts to insure neutrality, where possible, the sources
used in this book are non- LDS. Like a police report, much of the information
and history is from the people who lived it. Actual witness statements from
This book is probably one of the most unusual religious books you will ever
read. Why? Because besides all the police stories this book has, I am a
professional (meaning trained and paid) investigator. For twenty-four years, I
have been trained to deal with facts, logic and reasonableness. I am a gatherer
and presenter of evidence. My expertise is in the field of identification,
collection, preservation and the presentation of evidence.
Last but not least,
it is my job to testify to the truthfulness of that evidence.
...And that is how this book was written.
Each chapter is a separate investigation as it pertains to the greater
investigation. It is a series of
investigations with each investigation being a natural and logical step forward
in our pursuit to find the answers to two extremely important questions. Those
being, “Does Jesus Christ really have a singular true church?” And if so, “Which
one is it?” The only way to fairly answer those two questions is to investigate
for yourself. But before you begin, I warn you of this most important
investigative fact: As in all investigations, but especially this one, where you
are seeking the true church of Jesus Christ, you must separate the love and
loyalties you have for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from the love and
loyalties you have for your church. Those feelings are not one and the same. If
you don’t realize that, your investigation will be biased and your conclusions
will be slanted. That is a true statement regardless of what religion you are.
Only the true church will be able to stand the investigation; the acid test. A
scary statement to many, but true none the less.
“Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who
forsaketh his sins
and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my
commandments, shall see my face and know that I am; and that I am the true light
lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” Doctrine and Covenants, 93:1-2
The very first question that has to be asked and answered by you is this,
“Do I want to know if there really is ...one true Church?”
A tough question that only you can answer.
But sooner or later, you have to answer it.
