Don’t be caught using one standard for accepting the Bible and another for the Book of Mormon. The authors of the Book of Mormon warned:
17 He that condemneth let him be aware lest he shall be in danger of hell fire.
18 And he that saith: Show unto me [the plates] or ye shall be smitten-let him beware lest he commandeth that which is forbidden of the Lord.
19 For behold the same that judgeth rashly shall be judged rashly
21 And he that shall breathe out wrath and strifes against the work of the Lord and shall say: “We will destroy the work of the Lord”-the same is in danger to be hewn down and cast into the fire; (Mormon 8)
If you had received a witness of the Holy Spirit but are now against the Book of Mormon:
6 If ye deny the Holy Ghost when it once has had place in you, and ye know that ye deny it, behold, this is a sin which is unpardonable; yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness; yea, I say unto you, my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain a forgiveness. (Alma 39)
The following points are for squinters of the ancillary items over the most powerful preachings of Jesus in the Book of Mormon:
- Please postulate who invented the preaching parts that permeate the Holy Book of Mormon.
- There are more references to Jesus in the Book of Mormon than the Bible.
- No critic has yet shown where a single verse of preaching was plagiarized from.
- Shouldn’t it be scrutinized by what it purports to be about instead of some sundry reference to animals, metals, or seeds?
- How a person judges the Book of Mormon is how they will be judged.
- Critics are challenged to copy by hand one of the shortest books in the Book of Mormon – Jacob, before dismissing out of hand the entirety of the record.
