"Eye of Faith" and "Spiritual Eye" statements by Martin Harris

Summary: Martin Harris frequently told people that he did not see the golden plates and the angel with his natural eyes but rather with “spiritual eyes” or the “eye of faith.” Critics desire to make it appear as though the statements made by Martin Harris about the Three Witnesses’ manifestation discount its reality. But in their zeal for the destruction of the LDS faith critics have wrenched Brother Harris’ statements out of their proper context.
