The story of the Book of Mormon is of a Prophet that moved his family to America. He had two good sons, that wished to follow God's commandments, and two sons that thought the dad was off his rocker and they wanted to keep the small family fortune instead of leave Jerusalem. Most of the BOM is stories of the descendents of the good ones vs. the bad ones and all the interactions they had with God. Eventually the bad ones that wanted to worship many gods and act primal, killed off all the good ones. So it would make sense that there isn't anything left of a belief in Christ, since this is the main thing they had against the good ones.What has always amazed me is the Book of Mormon is supposed to be a history of the native Americans. The amazement begans when the white man discovered America you would expect at least one little tribe would be a Christian especially sense the 'Book of Mormon' is supposed to be another testament of Jesus Christ! Yet when you examine the beliefs of the American 'Indians' they more reflect the beliefs that origanated in ancient pagan Babylon.
Another thing is the 'Book of Mormon' was supposed to be translated from some ancient Egyption language. The King James Verson was translated in 1611 yet when compared to the 'Book of Mormon' it is the exact same wording. How can that be?
As for me I looked extensively into the Mormon teachings. I had the 'Book of Mormon' and
"Doctrine and Covenants" written by Bringham Young which is more accepted by the LDS than the
'Book of Mormon'or the KJV for that matter!
I could tell you a lot more but if you are LDS you don't want to hear it and if not you can do the same inbvestigation that I did.
Have at it! The decision is yours!
The speech in the BOM was put in more of an Old English tone because that's what Joseph's society was used to in the early 1800's when they read scripture.
The Doctrine and Covenants was not written by Brigham Young. And it is not esteemed any higher than ancient scripture. It is simply revelations that were given to Joseph Smith, written down.
Yes, please tell me more about my religion. I'd love to hear what else you can teach me.
