    The Doctrine and Covenants is a book of scripture containing revelations from the Lord to the Prophet Joseph Smith and to a few other latter-day prophets. It is unique in scripture because it is not a translation of ancient documents.

    The Doctrine and Covenants is one of four books of scripture used in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the other three are the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and the Pearl of Great Price).

    The Lord said to the Prophet Joseph Smith, “This generation shall have my word through you” (Doctrine and Covenants 5:10). In the Doctrine and Covenants we learn doctrines concerning the eternal nature of families, the degrees of glory awaiting men and women after this life, and the organization of Christ’s Church on earth today. We also read about the covenants God makes with those who are willing to keep His commandments.

    Concerning the Doctrine and Covenants, the Lord said:

    “Search these commandments, for they are true and faithful, and the prophecies and promises which are in them shall all be fulfilled.

    “What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same” (Doctrine and Covenants 1:37–38).

    3. The LDS church teaches that as the Bible has been transmitted over the centuries it has “suffered the loss of many plain and precious parts.” They believe the Bible to be the word of God “as far as it is translated correctly” and that the “most reliable way to measure the accuracy of any biblical passage is not by comparing different texts, but by comparison with the Book of Mormon and modern-day revelations.” The KJV is the LDS church’s official English Bible, though it has been foot-noted in a way that interprets the meaning to compliment LDS doctrines.

    4. The Book of Mormon teaches that only fools say the Bible is sufficient and that other scripture is not needed (“Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible.” (2 Nephi 29:6)). The Book of Mormon contains many linguistic similarities to the King James Bible, including entire passages duplicated word-for-word. For example, the Book of Mormon contains 19 chapters of the King James translation of Isaiah in their entirety.

    What if the Holy Spirit told you to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

    You are aware that Nephi lived at the time of the birth of Christ, and beheld his resurrected body when he visited the Americas after his resurrection. Right?

    It's not just the LDS, it is the bible that has that interpretation too. Just saying.

    But in this case 'all' does mean 'all'. We love 'all' of the bible.

    You're talking about the Holy Spirit of the one true God beside whom there is no other?

    We believe that the combination of the Bible, the BOM, the D&C and the Pearl of Great Price, and the words of current prophets, we have a much better understanding of the fullness of the gospel (both milk and meat as portrayed in the Bible) and what it takes to be saved, etc., etc., etc.

    The Bible says that without apostles and prophets and others, the people can be led around like children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. (Ephesians 4:14)

    With apostles and prophets and others it is a completely different story. We can be perfected, the work of the ministry can be accomplished, we can be properly edified.
    So we can come into a unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, so we can become perfect men, unto the same measure of stature as of the fulness of Christ.
    IOW we can be like Christ himself in his fulness. (Ephesians 4:12-13)

    This is why we have the Bible and other scriptures, but most importantly we have current apostles and prophets to lead and guide the church through revelations from Jesus himself.

    Nice try, though. You can deceive yourself, but you can't fool others who know better.

    No deception, we love 'all' the bible that we still have. But that is why we love our other scriptures that are supplemental to the bible and fill in any holes where information is missing. And living apostles and prophets to give us current information to help us live the kind of life that Jesus would like us to live.

    That's a bunch of ___! False prophets such as yours lead people away from Christ.

    Sounds like fiction to me. Or at the very least, from another dimension, re: mandala effect.

    It is too bad you believe false doctrines, false commandments, false prophets and false gods.

    8 We believe the Bible to be the word of God as
    far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the
    Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

    These "Articles of Faith" don't tell even half of what Mormons teach. There is NO MENTION of the Pearl of Great Price, or the Doctrine and Covenants. There is no mention of multiple gods or "Heavenly Mother."

    Mormons talk about milk and meat. The milk, if it existed, would be SOUR and the meat would be covered in MAGGOTS.

    Recently, I've noticed the psychic abilities of Mormons after a heated discussion.

    Try not to let it get under your skin, it plays to it.

    The effects on the mind when they pray for you, it's somewhat suffocating, especially if malice is part of the thought push.
