I came across this interesting paragraph in the current LDS priesthood/Relief Society manual Teachings of Joseph Smith in a lesson about apostasy (I may write more about this lesson later):
As that year  wore on, a spirit of apostasy grew among some of the Saints in Kirtland. Some members became proud, greedy, and disobedient to the commandments. Some blamed Church leaders for economic problems caused by the failure of a Kirtland financial institution established by Church members.
At first glance, if you didn’t know anything about the bank failure, you would wonder why on earth anyone would blame Church leaders for the actions of Church members. Why, anyone who would do such a thing would have to have a spirit of contention and apostasy. But if you know the context, it makes perfect sense.
First, who were the “Church leaders” who were being blamed? Chiefly Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon.
And who were the “Church members” who founded the bank? Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon.
Thus, the sentence ought to read: “Some blamed Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon for economic problems caused by the failure of a Kirtland financial institution established by Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon.”
Makes a lot more sense, doesn’t it?
