What is the Book of Mormon?

Michael Jensen
The Book of Mormon is a volume of Holy Scripture. It is another testament to of Jesus Christ. Did Joseph Smith write it? No. Does it replace the Bible? Absolutely not. The Book of Mormon is a record of the inhabitants of old America. The story starts as they embark on a journey from Jerusalem, being led by God to the promised land. Once there they multiplied, built cities, settled new lands and chose good or evil. Among these people were prophets called of God. Since there was no T.V, Social Media, or any other way to communicate between Jerusalem and America, God needed Prophets in this land as well, to communicate his commandments to his children. The Book of Mormon is like the Journal of these prophets. They were commanded to record their words and testify of Christ. Your mind will be blown as you read their beautiful and powerful testimonies. The best part? Gaining a personal witness that this book is true confirms something huge. It confirms that Jesus Christ's own, personal church, is in fact on the earth. How? We believe that Joseph Smith translated this book with the power of God because he was a prophet. And if it is true, that means he really did receive that power to translate, that he was a prophet, he did restore Christ's church, and it is on the earth today. I have received a witness for myself that it is true. I love the Book. I love what it teaches. You have nothing to loose by reading it, but everything to gain. Show more Show less
