Bible vs Another Gospel

“My Words . . . Never Cease,” Ensign, May 2008, 91; “Some Christians, in large measure because of their genuine love for the Bible, have declared that there can be no more authorized scripture beyond the Bible. In thus pronouncing the canon of revelation closed, our friends in some other faiths shut the door on divine expression that we in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hold dear: the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, the Pearl of Great Price, and the ongoing guidance received by God’s anointed prophets and apostles. Imputing no ill will to those who take such a position, nevertheless we respectfully but resolutely reject such an unscriptural characterization of true Christianity.” – Jeffrey R. Holland

 

John 10:27-28; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

Hebrews 2:1; “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

Well given what the Lord has revealed in His word it’d be hard to justify adding “another gospel” to what He’s already provided. 

I also find it interesting how the words of this apostle have referred to Christians as “our friends”. The whole reason Mormonism was given birth to was because the body of Christ had turned into an enemy of Christ according to Joseph Smith. 

They’ve begun to exchange their diatribe in for caressing compliments making their falsehoods easier to swallow. 

I’ve always laughed at the phrase “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”, but in this case truer words have never been spoken. Watch out for the trickery!
