The Spiritual Geography refers to the lands of The Book of Mormon, the prophecies pertaining to them, and how they were fulfilled. Remember, The Holy Book of Mormon is first and foremost a spiritual record, full of prophecies, designed to test the faith of its readers:
And when they shall have received this (TBOM) which is expedient that they should have FIRST TO TRY THEIR FAITH, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them. (3 Nephi 26:9)
Thus, the prophecies (Spiritual Geography) that are associated with Book of Mormon lands should be verified first before considering the non-faith, scientific means of verification, such as archaeology, languages, or culture (Mayflower Deconstructed). Geography enthusiasts have been placing “the cart before the horse” by seeking cultural, archaeological, and linguistic alignments before spiritual ones.
It can be said:
They labored in vain, teaching for models the theories of man while ignoring the spiritual promises of God.
God is a God of Promise, yet Book of Mormon geographers have reduced the Book of Mormons’ LAND PROMISES to a mere footnote, as if they had no relevance at all.
