Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon and the Bible extensively. I have prayed to know if both are true independently. I know that they are, Christ came to earth to suffer for our sins and give us a path to exaltation. The Book of Mormon truly testifies of Christ, and is a partner, not a replacement, for the Bible.

How I live my faith

Each day is marked by two significant events, a prayer and scripture reading. From these things and the words of living prophets I try to live my life in harmony with the teachings of the savior Jesus Christ. On August 10th, I head to the Missionary Training Center.I will be serving in the Farmington New Mexico Mission.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Jed Robinson
Simple answer: literally the prophet Mormon started it then, his son Moroni finished it, finally Joseph Smith translated it into English. Less simple answer: many ancient prophets wrote things that ended up in the finial book, starting with Nephi, his brother Jacob, his son Enos, his son Jarom, his son Omni so on and so forth. The names of the books are typicaly named after there primary authors. Mormon came along towards the end of the history of the book and gathered all the records from Nephi to himself (about 1000 years) and abridged it all into one record on golden plates. When he was killed in battle his son Moroni finished the abridgement and took the record to hide it from the same people who killed his father so they could not destroy it. In the 1800's Joseph Smith finished a translation of the plates into English. Show more Show less
