It Is Its Own Best Witness

There are couple of things you didn’t know about the Book of Mormon: At a time when the divine message of the Holy Bible is under attack from many directions, the Book of Mormon is the world’s most important witness to the truth and divine origin of the Holy Bible. The purpose of the Book of Mormon is that men may be persuaded that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. It speaks also of other values. It tells us, through prophets who lived on this land, that America is a divinely appointed sanctuary of freedom. One of these prophets, Ether, prophesied boldly in this regard, and we would do well to listen to his message: “Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ…” (Ether 2:12) My dear friends, you who know me well know of my love for the Savior. Unto you I speak. Few know the Holy Bible better than I. I strive diligently to live by its teachings. It is also my solemn witness that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. “And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words (the Book of Mormon), for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good. And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye…for Christ will show unto you, with power and great glory, that they are His words at the last day; and you and I shall stand face to face before His bar…” (2 Nephi 33: 10, 11)

      No other book but the holy bible is the truth. Satan makes things look good but are. Half true. Many have came to experience the spirit world and j. Smith but in reality satan appears just as well
      Jesu Gave a warring no other but him thats gos to the father. The turth word is the holy word Mormon isnt but half turth.
      Cristobal Lopez Thank you, Mr Escobeo. The Book of Mormon is its own best witness. It is written, and I quote from the front piece, “to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations…And now, if there are faults (in the book) they are the mistakes of men; wherefore, condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the judgement seat of Christ.”
    • Cristobal Lopez I thank you Mr Escobedo. The verse you allude to reads ” But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you,let him be accursed.” We may also go back to the Old Testament where Deuteronomy 4:2 speaks in much the same vein: ” Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it.” John the Revelator echoed those very words in Revelations 22:19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” The fact that Moses wrote as he did in Deuteronomy several thousand years earlier, did not keep Paul and John from adding additional scripture as directed by God. Revelation comes from God to His prophets, and is not to be altered by man. Remember that the Jews living in the time of Christ, clinging to their dead prophets, rejected new prophets and newly added scripture. That which they had of the Old Testament was not the fullness of the Gospel in the meridian of times when Jesus walked the earth. And in like manner today, the Old Testament and the New Testament do not constitute a fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I testify with solemnity that the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ, contains the fulness of theGospel, and has reopened the channels of revelation from God, and further revelation has come forth, and will continue to come forth until the coming of the Son of Man, even the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. The Old Testament and the New Testament and the Book of Mormon are woven together as one. They are the stick or record of Judah (the Old Tesament and the New Testament) and the stick or record of Ephraim (the Book of Mormon) spoken of by Ezekiel 37:15-17
      “Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
      And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.” But again I say, the Book of Mormon has no need of me. It is its own best witness, and will serve to verify the Old and the New Testament, and to restore many plain and precious things lost or taken from them. Throughout its pages, it proclaims again, and again, and again, this central and pivotal message: JESUS IS THE CHRIST.
