I couldn't ask for more from him when he sent his own beloved son to die for my sake.I am a Mormon because of the standards we have in our lives.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Priya
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). also in D&C 42 12 SAY THTA " AND AGAIN , THE ELDERS , PRIESTS AND TEACHERS OF THIS CHURCH SHALL TEACH THE PRINCIPLES OF MY GOSPEL , WHICH ARE IN THE BIBLE AND THE BOOK OF MORMON , IN THE WHICH IS THE FULNESS OF THE GOSPEL...
