Question: After having read, how many others of you have read to also found truth in the Book of Mormon!?
After having read the Book of Mormon, I found it to be the word of God, to complement, not contradict the King James Version of the Bible!.!.!.just wondering who also had the same feel feelings!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
You are absoluetly right! The Holy Ghost testifies of all truth, and the feelings of truthfulness you have come from him!. He gives us personal revelation, which everyone is entitled to!.

I know the Book of Mormon is true!. I know it, not just believe it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

After reading it, I found it to be an 1820s fantasy novel!. It reflected the way people viewed the Native Americans in 1820s, and the little that was known about them!. People were encountering them regularly back then and they were fascinated by all the Native artifacts they discovered!.

I thought large parts had been lifted directly from the Bible!. There are endless wars, and God commands people to kill each other all the time, like the Old Testament!. Even after Christ came (supposedly), they were so warlike they killed each other off!. That war business also pretty nicely reflected the US Revolutionary War, which had only happened a generation before Smith's time!.

There were no women named in the Book of Mormon, which reflected the 1820s in New England all too well!. The plants and animals named were European, not native to this hemisphere!.

Have you read the original 1830 version!? It is even more obvious it was written by men, not God!. I have the 1957 version, the one that talks about 'white and delightsome' as opposed to the cursed 'dark and filthy' natives - another 1820s concept!.

Smith was quite the con man!. You know he sent a copy with a couple of friends to Canada to sell it!? No buyers, so he started a church!. I don't know why - the Book of Mormon has no more religion in it than Lord of the Rings!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Well, this is America, and up until Bush came along we did have freedom of religion, and I guess we still do if you're Mormon, and not Muslim, so go ahead and believe if you want!.

Until the next Republican president!.

Personally, I never did believe that Joe Smith found those tablets and used a stovepipe hat to read them!. I think he was a scam artist and a pretty good one, too!.

But, hey! That's just me!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

There might be truth in that book but it would only be by coincidence!. Its definately a fake because the person who wrote it did so in the same English as the King James Bible thinking that it would sound more like it belonged to the Christian canon!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You know you′re in trouble when you think you know what God is thinking!. Be very a critical judge of others who tell you they know!. Keep reading!. Try the teachings of Buda next!. One thing is certain about all religions, they can′t all be completely correct, and it′s likely that they are completely wrong!.
For me !.!.!. Hail Odin!Www@QuestionHome@Com

lol!. Gods not real silly, but whatever floats your boat!. =]

From your lack of q&a's, I'm guessing you're a newbie!. You might want to try the religion and spirituality section, but I'll warn you; it can get pretty heated at times!. Have fun! ^_^Www@QuestionHome@Com

Christian = Bible
Jew = Torah
Muslim = Koran
Scientology = OTIII
Morman = Book of the Mormans

get the picture!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

The Book of Mormon has nothing to do with the Bible, regardless what translation of the Bible we take!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm not sure what this has to do with TWILIGHT or HARRY POTTER, so I am confused in how to proceed with an answer!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
