BookOfMormonGoldPlates

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is the word of God and, like the Bible, gives us guidance and inspiration in our daily lives. Specifically, the Book of Mormon was prepared for our day so that we would learn and grow by readings the words of ancient prophets in the Americas. The Book of Mormon is specifically an account of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and their dealings with God.

The prophet Joseph Smith, the first president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, was called by God to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the Earth and to translate the ancient record on gold plates that became the Book of Mormon. Regarding this book, Joseph Smith said, “The Book of Mormon is the most correct of any book on this 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.”

President Monson’s Testimony of the Book of Mormon

Thomas S. Monson, the current prophet and president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has shared his thoughts on the importance of the Book of Mormon in our lives:

 

“In order for us to be strong and to withstand all the forces pulling us in the wrong direction … we must have our own testimony… Whether you are 12 or 112—or anywhere in between—you can know for yourself that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Read the Book of Mormon. Ponder its teachings. Ask Heavenly Father if it is true. We have the promise that ‘if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.’”

 

“When we know the Book of Mormon is true, then it follows that Joseph Smith was indeed a prophet and that he saw God the Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.”

“From the pages of the Book of Mormon comes Moroni’s promise that through prayer, real intent, and faith in Christ, we may know the truth of these promises ‘by the power of the Holy Ghost’”

BookOfMormon

“[Along] with other latter-day prophets, I testify of the truthfulness of this ‘most correct of any book on earth,’ even the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ… Its message spans the earth and brings its readers to a knowledge of the truth. It is my testimony that the Book of Mormon changes lives. May each of us read it and reread it. And may we joyfully share our testimonies of its precious promises with all of God’s children.”

 

“Many of you … [already know] that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith is indeed a prophet, and that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. Some of you, however, may still be living on the testimony of others—your parents, your friends, your Church leaders. May I suggest that . . . you set aside time every day to find out for yourself if the Book of Mormon is a true book, for it will change your heart and change your life. If you seek this knowledge ‘with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ,’ I promise that you will receive an answer. And once you know that the Book of Mormon is true, then it will follow that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. You will have that burning testimony and knowledge that this church is true.”

 

“Such knowledge, such a personal testimony, is essential if we are to safely navigate the sometimes treacherous paths through life with the adversary attempting to deceive us at every turn. As you keep the flame of testimony burning brightly, you will become a beacon of righteousness—even a light—for all to see.”
