Whoever Abides NOT in the Doctrine of Christ- Part Two

We're back faster than a week but we have things to say on this subject. It is rather interesting to note that the word Bible is never once found in the Bible yet the Book of Mormon has it several times-

"Because my words shall hiss forth, many of the Gentiles shall say, A Bible! A Bible! We have got a Bible and there cannot be anymore Bible, Wherefore, that because you have a Bible, ye not suppose that it contains all my words, neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written" 2 Nephi 29:3,10.

Mormons claim that the Book of Mormon is the fullness of the gospel but the Bible is accurate only so far as it has been accurately translated (Mormon Articles of Faith 8). The Bible retains its original languages (Greek and Hebrew) whereas the Book of Mormon's supposed original language, Reformed Egyptian, can no longer be found. Yet the Mormons believe their book is accurately translated without the conjecture that it might not be accurately translated. The litmus test is definately different for them.

"Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add unto his words, lest He reprove you, and YOU be found a liar"- Proverbs 30:5-6. Like
Satan (John 8:44), the Mormons speak from their "own" resources and here is one of them. The last book of the Old Testament, Malachi, says in 4:5- "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord". 3rd Nephi from the Book of Mormon (25:5) records that verse from Malachi 4:5 exactly the same.

However, Doctrine and Covenants records that verse the same way the supposed angel did in Joseph Smith's first vision. Smith admitted that the verse came with a "little variation" from the way it reads in the Bible.
"Behold, I will reveal unto you the Priesthood, by the hand of Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord" Doctrine and Covenants 2:1. "Little" variation? Apparently the angel Moroni slipped up when he recorded it in the most correct book on earth, that being the Book of Mormon, at least according to Latter Day Saints!

Perhaps Mormon elder LeGrand Richards of the Qurom of the Twelve summed it up best when he said,
"When prophets of the Lord speak they always have a familiar spirit"- The Mormons and the Jewish People. He later atttibuted the creation of the Book of Mormon to those very same familiar spirits which even the BOM records as evil spirits. How else can one explain away those "little variations" that produce major Mormon doctrine?

In my next post in this series we shall examine Christian Science.
