LORD would not do things without giving reasons : death of all Mayans

David killed Uriah. Before LORD punished David, LORD spoke to David (through prophet Nathan),
"Why have you despised the word of the LORD, to do what is evil in his sight? You have smitten Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and have taken his wife to be your wife, and have slain him with the sword of the Ammonites. ..." [2 Samuel 12:7-12]
Solomon sinned. But before LORD took away the major part of his kingdom, LORD spoke to him,
"Since this has been your mind and you have not kept my covenant and my statutes which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom from you and will give it to your servant. ...." [1 Kings 11:11-13]
LORD spoke more about the sins of Solomon when He chose Jeroboam as king,
LORD to Jeroboam:
"Behold, I am about to tear the kingdom from the hand of Solomon, and will give you ten tribes (but he shall have one tribe, for the sake of my servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel), because he has forsaken me, and worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of Moab, and Milcom the god of the Ammonites, and has not walked in my ways, doing what is right in my sight and keeping my statutes and my ordinances, as David his father did. ... " [1 Kings 11:31-39]
Before LORD punished Damascus, Gaza, Tyre, Edom, Ammon, Moab, Judah, ... LORD gave the reasons,
"For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Tyre, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Ammonites, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
"For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because ...."
Is it possible that LORD destroyed all the Mayans from off the face of America without leaving any record as to the reasons why He destroyed them, in the whole history of human existence ?
The Mayans had a short existence, from 600 B.C. to 420 A.D., and they did record the happenings by engraving onto brass/gold plates.
Moreover, there are many TV documentaries about Maya relics, also websites about Maya, where you can get a glance of their past. There are even arranged tours to the relics in Mexico !
I AM NOT A MORMON. I AM AGAINST THE PRACTICES OF THE MORMON CHURCH.
But as I have read over the Book of Mormon 5 times (I have read over the Bible many times that I cannot remember the number), and have watched quite a number of TV programs about Maya relics and have seen photos, I say, before the Almighty GOD who created me and who will judge me in the Last Day, that I think the Book of Mormon is a true historical record of the Mayans for the period 600 B.C. to 420 A.D.
Part of the Maya record was found by Joseph Smith, founder of Mormon Church. Unfortunately, he and Brigham Young, second president of Mormon Church, introduced many abominable practices and even devilish precepts that the whole world forsake the Book of Mormon.
The wrong doings of Joseph Smith (founder of Mormon Church) should not make the Maya history false
(Note : The following is taken from my previous post in my FORUM.)
Let me put it this way.
Suppose Confucius buried his writing "Analect of Confucius" under the ground, and many years later, an American found that out.
And suppose he had talents to read Chinese character, and he translated it into English, and also established an organization, called "Confucius Organization" in USA. But because he was tempted into sin and fell later in his life, he introduced many devilish precepts into his "Confucius Organization".
Question : will that falsify Confucius "Analect of Confucius" ?
When we investigate whether "Confucism" is true or false, shall we read the writings of that American or shall we read Confucius book direct ?

Therefore, it is my sincere wish that you read the First Chapter of Book of Mormon online first, before deciding whether you wish to download the whole book.(From Gutenberg Project) After that, you may compare the descriptions in the book with the documentaries and the photos to see if they correlate or not.
WARNING : I recommend the Book of Mormon, not the Mormon Church, you join the Mormon Church at your own risk, I am free of your blood.
JUST AS THE BIBLE RECORD DOWN THE DEALINGS OF LORD WITH THE ISRAELITES, AND THAT THE BIBLE, AS A HISTORICAL RECORD, IS OF IMMENSE IMPORTANCE TO US, SO IS THE BOOK OF MORMON, WHICH RECORDED DOWN THE DEALINGS OF LORD WITH THE MAYANS. IN BOTH THE BIBLE AND THE BOOK OF MORMON IS THE MESSAGE,
KEEP THE LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS => BLESSING
BREAK THE LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS => CURSE
MOREOVER, THIS MESSAGE IS A SOLEMN WARNING FROM LORD.
Jesus : Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Jesus : But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, ...
