In the early years
of my Christian life, I have often been approached by Mormons who tried to
persuade me to believe that THE BOOK OF MORMON is another Testament of
Jesus Christ. They told me that THE BOOK OF MORMON does not
contradict THE HOLY BIBLE as it was given by God to their prophet on golden
plates. Notwithstanding, the Book of Mormon was MORE ACCURATE than
the Holy Bible, they claimed. A paragraph written in its
INTRODUCTION clearly states the fact.
record the Prophet Joseph Smith said: "I told the brethren that the Book
of Mormon was the most correct
of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would
get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book."
I did a little
study and found a little something that's disturbing and contrary to the
THE HOLY BIBLE. And thereafter, whenever Mormons came knocking on my door
or when they stopped me on the road, I would asked them this simple
question: Where Was Jesus
The answer they
gave was 100% correct
"Jesus was born in Bethlehem." (cf. Luke 2:4.) To assure that they
knew the truth, I would asked for an affirmation
"Are you really sure that Christ was born in Bethlehem?"
to which they firmly replied, "Certainly."
that I requested them to turn to their Book of Mormon and read Alma
chapter 7, verse 10.
And behold, he shall be
born of Mary, at Jerusalem
which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and
chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of
the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.
reactions to what they read varied one from the other. A few had
tried to explain that Bethlehem was originally a part of Jerusalem or that
the two were synonymous. One had tried pitifully to justify that it
was not wrong to say that Christ was born in Jerusalem because Bethlehem
is just nearby. Are the Mormons not able to tell that Jerusalem and
Bethlehem are not less than 4 miles (nearly 7 kilometres) apart? And
that they are two totally different places, one a city, the Capital of
Israel, and the other a town?
BOOK OF MORMON truly ACCURATE? If it came from God, why did it
contradict the THE SACRED SCRIPTURE?
Friends, there is ONLY ONE BOOK that is IN-BREATHED OF GOD
it's THE HOLY BIBLE.
