If the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a Book of Mormon. If Joseph Smith was a prophet, then the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the same Church that Christ established while He was on the earth.

It’s as simple as that. So the question of all questions deals with the truthfulness of Book of Mormon. No. I’m not transitioning the narrative about the Book of Mormon.

I’m telling the history as Joseph and Emma and Oliver did. The question poses a false dilemma. It assumes that the Book of Mormon either came through revelation or translation. But it didn’t. The translation of the Book of Mormon came to Joseph Smith by revelation.

Historicity, geography, and methods of authorship continue to be hotly debated among Mormons and Ex-Mormons as a way to prove that the book is true or false. It has been set up to be an all or nothing campaign, where if the book is true, then Joseph Smith was a prophet and if he was the prophet, then he restored the only true church.

Answer: When Mormon missionaries (properly called Latter Day Saints or simply "LDS") come to your door, they will often offer a free copy of the Book of Mormon and tell you about its author, Joseph Smith.

Smith, they will say, translated the Book of Mormon from golden plates he dug up in a hill in New York in the early s. Either the Book of Mormon is what the Prophet Joseph said it is or this Church and its founder are false, fraudulent, a deception from the first instance onward.

Not everything in life is so black and white, but it seems the authenticity of the Book of Mormon and its keystone role in our belief is exactly that.

The false translation of the Book of Abraham, therefore, casts serious doubt on the Book Book of Mormon Mormon as well, forever debilitating Joseph’s claim he was a true, inspired prophet of God. Thousands of Mormons left the church as the result of this discovery, while thousands more are completely unaware of this important piece of evidence.

As a preacher I spend a great deal of time reading, studying and memorizing the Bible, therefore I. The Book of Mormon is a catalyst, like the Bible or other any other inspired writings for drawing nearer to God and seeking and obtaining Guidance, Direction, Comfort, and Constant Influence from Him through His Holy Spirit/Ghost.

That’s it. And that is actually all the Book of Mormon teaches. The Bible is ancient; the Book of Mormon is modern. Evidence from history, archaeology, and other fields of study prove that the Bible is a collection of ancient writings and confirm much of its historical claims.

By contrast, the evidence shows that the Book of Mormon is not translated from ancient scriptures but is a nineteenth-century fiction. by Matt Slick.

Mormonism teaches that God used to be a man on another world, (Mormon Doctrine by Bruce McConkie, p. ) and that he became a god (this is called exaltation, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pages) and came to this world with his goddess wife.

He was able to become a god because he followed the laws and ordinances of the god he served on another world. The Book of Mormon itself suffers the same fate when it comes to its own historical support.

In a word, it hasn’t got any. The Book of Mormon describes a vast pre-Columbian culture that supposedly existed for centuries in North and South America. It goes into amazingly specific detail describing the civilizations erected by the “Nephites.

Some people loved it and some people hated it but at the end of the day, the experiences I shared are so tangible to me that I’ll never be able to forget or deny their.

It is impossible to read the Book of Mormon with an “open mind.” Confronted on every page with the steady assurance that what he is reading is both holy scripture and true history, the reader is soon forced to acknowledge a prevailing mood of assent or resentment.

The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement, which adherents believe contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately BC to AD It was first published in March by Joseph Smith as The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi.

For me this is two questions in one: 1. Is the Book of Mormon authentic - is it really an ancient record. Is the information in it really scripture - a revelation from God.

When it got first into my hands, I was very much surprised by the power. True or false: The Book of Mormon has been translated into as many languages as the Bible. true. false. Advertisement. What subtitle would you find on a present-day Book of Mormon. Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

The Word as Revealed to Joseph Smith. The Word as Revealed by Moroni. The Book of Mormon. None of this meant that Joseph Smith was infallible or even that the Book of Mormon was infallible.

I have. Documented evidences are given to show that the major doctrines and teachings of the Mormon church are contrary to the teachings of the Book of Mormon.
