What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?
Most of our scriptural writings have come through apostles and prophets. Through apostles and prophets, God has given His children sacred writings called scriptures. The scriptures can help you know God, His love for you, and His teachings. To the Christian world the most well-known collection of scriptures is the Holy Bible. In addition to the Bible, Latter-day Saints accept the following books as scripture:
We believe that the Bible is the word of God, given through his Apostles and Prophets in the days of old. Through generations the bible has been translated time and time again, and now it stands with some of the simple truths of Christs teachings being either removed or complicated. That is why there are so many different views on what the scriptures teach, and so many churchs created for those views. We believe that God has restored those simple truths and clarified the complicated view through the Book of Mormon which is a record of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas.
- The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, a record of God's dealings with the inhabitants of ancient America (2000 BC - 400 AD).
- The Doctrine and Covenants, a collection of revelations and inspired declarations given for the establishment and regulation of the Church of Jesus Christ in the last days.
- The Pearl of Great Price, a selection of revelations, translations, and writings of Joseph Smith.
The Bible is a Testament of Jesus Christ in the Old World (Eastern Hemisphere). It is the word of God. If gives the accounts of Jesus Christ's ministry and the teachings of ancient prophets. The Book of Mormon and Bible together clarify Jesus Christ's teachings and testify that the teachings in each book are true.
