How Can We Know that the Bible is Accurate?
The Book of Mormon claims that after the apostles wrote the Scriptures, the Catholic Church had "taken away from the gospel of the Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious; and also many covenants of the Lord have they taken away" (1 Ne 13:26). Yet, Jesus claimed, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Matt 24:35), and history shows that there is no way the Catholic Church could gather all the manuscripts to distort them. So who do you believe? Jesus or the Book of Mormon?
Why Doesn't the Mormon Church Correct the Bible?
The Mormon Church's eighth Article of Faith states, “We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.” If the Bible has been corrupted [translated incorrectly] as the Mormon Church claims, why doesn't the Mormon Church fix the Bible? Even Joseph Smith who made corrections to the Bible when he translated it, didn't claim it had been fully corrected. To this day, the Mormon Church still claims it is incorrect. If their prophets are so inspired that they can write their own scripture, why won't they fix the Bible? They love the idea that that Bible is "incorrect" so they can weave their own false doctrines into it. If a church removes, restricts or rewrites the Word of God, then that church will practice anything in the name of God.
Did Joseph Smith Change Gods Covenant?
At Genesis 17:11, God gives the covenant of circumcision to Abraham to be performed at 8 days. Joseph Smith changed his translation to read 8 years instead of 8 days and used this passage as a basis for the Mormon practice of baptism at 8 years, but this passage has nothing to do with baptism. Did Jesus get baptized at 8 years? What about circumcision, did any of God's prophets get circumcised at 8 years, instead of 8 days? This change Joseph Smith made to God's covenant in his translation of the Bible is clearly wrong in light of the context and history.
Did Joseph Smith Boast he did More than Jesus?
Just one month before he died, Joseph Smith boasted he did more than Jesus did in keeping his church together (See History of the Church, volume 6, p. 409). Doctrine and Covenants 3:4 warns that if anyone "boasts in his own strength... he must fall and incur the vengeance of just God upon him."
Is the Book of Mormon Racist?
Mormonism today tries to distance itself from its racist history, yet aspects of racism continue to appear in the pages of current editions of the Book of Mormon. If the Book of Mormon is the "most correct of any book on earth," why is black skin still portrayed a curse? Does the Book of Mormon need to be fixed?
