mormon-scripturesThis morning I came across a Facebook page titled “I Love the Book of Mormon”. My question to Mormons is why do you love this book? What’s so special about it?

The mormon.org website describes the Book of Mormon as “another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. “ As I read that statement alone a couple of questions came to mind such as:

Why is another witness needed?

He’s God of the Universe. He created everything, so why does such a holy and powerful God even need another witness?

Furthermore if you truly are a believer in Jesus Christ why do you need more proof of who He is, why don’t you trust that He is who He said He was?

Yes, these questions are more rhetorical than anything else but it would be nice hear what those of the Mormon faith have to say.

I wish Mormons could see that the Book of Mormon is nothing more than a hook their church uses to entice non-believers and to cause doubt in the hearts of lukewarm Christians as to the authority of the Bible. I believe it all goes back to the same lie Satan used in the garden to plant doubts in Eve’s mind.

He uses those same lies to make us doubt God and His Word today.

Did God really say that? Can you really trust the Bible alone by itself? How can you believe it or trust it? Don’t you know it’s been translated like a million times and has been corrupted by evil men?

Those little, subtle doubts and lies are what has led to many people embracing the Book of Mormon over God’s Holy Word.

Satan is the father of lies. He’s a master manipulator and will use everything and anything at his disposal to take us down. To those who are ignorant in regard to the supreme authority of God and His Word, the Book of Mormon may look like a good thing. But in the end like the forbidden fruit will only lead them further away from God.

In Christ,

Melissa Grimes
