Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe as I do. The Book of Mormon is a literal translation from the writings found on the Golden Plates to English using the Seer stones given to Joseph Smith for that purpose. Blessings, Gar Â
The Book of Mormon is a True Translation
Elder Hugh B Brown stated:
"I ask you to remember that the man who translated the Book of Mormon was a young man who hadn't had the opportunity of schooling that you have had, and yet he dictated that book in just a little over two months and made very few, if any, corrections. For over one hundred years some of the best students and scholars of the world have been trying to prove from the Bible that the Book of Mormon is false but not one of them has been able to prove that anything he wrote was not in strict harmony with the scripturesâ€”with the Bible and with the word of God." (Hugh B. Brown, Brigham Young University, 4 October 1955)
By means ofÂ holy inspiration, the Book of Mormon came through,Â but not from, Joseph Smith!
Eighth Article of Faith:
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.
