September 13 – Romans 10:15-17; “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
It’s imperative that we use trusted translations of the Bible; as we all know, there are many bad ones out there. We as Christians do believe however that our God is powerful enough to preserve His word and supply us even today with His story. While the words spoken in His word are important, they are not the ‘key’ to our salvation; that distinction belongs to Jesus Christ alone. Sadly enough, the Mormons trust in a book that has had more than 4,000 grammatical changes made to it since its inception. How can they trust in the god that’s presented this to them if it’s always evolving?
“The Book of Mormon is the heart and core of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Early revelations given to Joseph Smith, the Prophet and founder of the Church, centered around the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. On the very date the Church was organized the Lord declared that the Book of Mormon was to play a key role in the function of the Church. A study of the book’s contents, purposes, and doctrines as revealed by the Lord shows it to be the backbone and fiber of the Church organization and administration.” Monte S. Nyman, The Most Correct Book, 3.
