How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?

  • The Book of Mormon and its doctrines of Christ teaches me about the Atonement of Christ and how I can return to live in the presence of Heavenly Father again after this mortal probation. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time I read it, it not only reinforces the teachings of Jesus Christ for me, and how he would have us live, it stirs a deep desire to keep the commandments and strive to live as Christ taught.

  • The Book of Mormon has been a blessing in my life. My day is so much better when I read each day. I know that the things in the Book of Mormon are true. It has helped me understand my purpose of life by preaching what we should do and our purpose here on Earth. Once we know our purpose we should know what to do with our life. It is a huge blessing. I hope that others can learn more about the Book of Mormon because I know that it will bless their lives. Show more

  • The Book of Mormon, is a secular, historical, and religious record of a people who left Jerusalem 600 BC, and immigrated to the Americas to establish a civilization, where they could worship God in peace. It records the religious dealings of these people with the Savior, their righteous as well as unrighteous acts, and the ultimate failure of their society due to unrighteousness. It records the visit of Jesus Christ to the righteous people here, after His resurrection, and the establishment of His Church and gospel. This record teaches the same gospel of Jesus Christ that He personally taught in Jerusalem, and is a second witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior of the world. I know that it is true. I have read this record many times, and it teaches the same truths found in the Bible, and is does in fact witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God and came to earth to bless all mankind, both east and west, by establishing his church and His gospel, and outlining a way that we each can prepare to return to Him and our Father. It is true and I invite you to read it and test it for yourself. Show more

  • It has helped me know the full plan of salvation clearly. I know how I must live and why I must keep the commandments. It is like a road map that provides details that were left out or lost from the Bible. The Bible and Book of Mormon together provide the complete instruction manual whereby one can be directed and kept on the path to Eternal Life. I understand that my purpose on earth is to prepare to meet God someday and be worthy to live with Him, to learn all I can, to be tried and tested to prove my faith in Jesus Christ, to experience pain and sorrow and happiness in order to grow and appreciate blessings, to gain a body for my spirit, to be obedient in keeping commandments, to love and teach others the gospel, and serve all of God's children.

  • I know where I came from before birth. I know where I am now. I know where I want to go after this life is over. The Book of Mormon answers all of these statements. It contains the full Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more

  • The Book of Mormon has helped me to come to know my Savior Jesus Christ more personally. It helps me understand why I'm here and what I need to do to be able to live with God one day. It inspires me to be better. Any time I read the book of Mormon I want to be more like Christ. I want to better serve Him and his children. Show more

  • The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ over and over again and makes the mission and life of my Savior understandable and meaningful. I have read it over and over again and each time it's new and fresh. It has layers and layers of teaching that penetrate my heart and my mind. Show more

  • If there's a question- the Book of Mormon has an answer. Anytime I'm not happy my first go to is prayer followed by opening up the Book of Mormon. I can always find peace when I read it. Heavenly Father gives us answers through the Holy Ghost as we read and ponder His word. Sometimes what I read has nothing to do with the answer I'm looking for but somehow I almost always come away from my studies and know what it is that I need to do. Show more

  • There is a verse in the Book of Mormon that says, "...man is that he might have joy." (2 Nephi 2:25) The Book of Mormon is the story of how those that come to Christ find joy and those that ignore or reject Christ don't find the happiness that God intends. I love the fact that the Book of Mormon is about real people like you and me and about their families and again the underlying message is that in the gospel of Jesus Christ through the Savior's redeeming sacrifice is peace and joy. Any thing else keeps us from our true potential and from a fullness of peace and joy. Show more

  • Before I served as a full-time missionary, my bishop challenged me to read The Book of Mormon straight through, from the title page to the final chapter. I did that. It was an enthralling exercise. At the end, he asked me what I had thought was the message of The Book of Mormon. I told him: "Repent". Of course, that one word says a lot. It is more than just, "Change" and more than simply, "Be Good". It means, more importantly, "be what the Lord wants you to be" and "give your life to Him." I didn't fully understand that at the time, but that was the starting point for this understanding. At a later time I had a profound experience while reading in the Book of Alma (a section of The Book of Mormon), where Alma is writing about the necessity for a Saviour. I was confused. I didn't understand what Alma was trying to say. I knelt to pray and felt moved to phone a member of our ward, a senior priesthood leader (who later supported me financially so that I could serve my mission), and asked him what those passages meant. This kind brother gently, and simply, explained to me how there is no salvation except through Jesus Christ, and why it was necessary for Him to come into mortality and sacrifice himself so that our sins and weakness could be overcome allowing us to return to our Heavenly Father's presence. More powerful than the words he spoke was the convincing power that came to me through the Holy Ghost. When we ended our phone call I became overwhelmed by the Spirit and fell to me knees expressing a tearful prayer of gratitude. That moment solidified my testimony of Jesus Christ - a testimony that relies wholly on the gift of God's Spirit, mediated by the teachings set out in The Book of Mormon. It truly is "Another Testament of Jesus Christ". Show more
