February 15 – Mormon ambiguity with the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 says; “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”.
Mormon scripture is a compilation of what they refer to as “the standard works”. These books consist of the Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, Pearl of Great Price and the Bible. However, they only believe the Bible “as far as it is translated correctly”. Ask why they believe in God’s word if it can’t be trusted.
“The words contained in this Bible are merely a history of what is gone by; it was never given to guide the servant of God in the course he should pursue. The Bible is not a sufficient guide, it is only the history of the people who lived 1800 years ago”. Orson Hyde, Journal of Discourses 2:75.
