Hets presidents of the Church mostly pertaining to the present day The Pearl of Great Price contains the translations by Joseph Smith Jr of some ancient papyri that give us writings of Abraham Mosesextracts from Joseph's translation of Matthewa portion of When I read the Book of Mormon for the first time I felt a profound sense of divinity such as I had never before experienced My life beforehand had been one of selfishness and self concern I didn't care how I lived or even if I lied cheated or acted immorally; however upon reading the Book of Mormon and learning of The Saviour Jesus Christ I began to feel a responsibility to both Him and His Father I literally began to feel that I had been lacking the most valuable knowledge that existed and that was that this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors Alma 3432As a companion to The Bible the Book of Mormon has helped me to understand the meaning of this life and in so doing has changed my life I know now why the human condition is the way it is I know what I can do to be happy and I know how I can please the One who created meI can promise that it will do that for all those who read it with the intent to learn and grow It truly testifies of Jesus Christ and is a physical evidence of his activity among mankind today and God's concern for His children's eternal welfare It taught me of my awful condition and how I through faith repentance baptism receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and remaining faithful can enjoy peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come Book of Mormon introduction

The Book of Mormon Doctrine and Covenants the Pearl of Great PriceThe Book of Mormon contains the writings of men who lived upon the American continent approximately 600 BC to 400 AD They are written to testify of the divinity of Jesus Christ The Doctrine Covenants are revelations given to Joseph Smith Jr and other prop It's impossible to rate the Book of Mormon because the reader has to either believe it's the word of God or not There's no in between As a literary endeavor it's really repetitive and boring But if you read it as scripture then you can pretty much overlook the archaic writing style Even as a young Mormon girl growing up I was confused about the scriptures taken out of Isaiah but went along with the story that Joseph Smith received direct inspiration from God and it happened to be the exact same wording as the King James version which is what Mormons read as part of the standard works What a coincidence Now that I'm an adult and can think for myself I realize Joseph Smith was the ultimate plagurist taking ideas from the bible the Freemasons and other earlier writings that had the theme of American Indians being descended from the tribe of Israel The Doctrine and Covenants is an extension of this as a way for Smith to tell members of the early church and even his own wife how to live and behave in the guise of devine revelation from God I especially love how when his wife Emma protested the fact that he took a teenage spiritual wife he rebuked her in the Doctrine and Covenants The Pearl of Great Price has been greatly de emphasized in the church because it's been pretty much debunked as scripture when the Egyptian papyrus that Joseph Smith translated had been found and turns out to be Egyptian burial instructions Now that there's so much info out there about all of this it makes me wonder how members of the church can still have so much blind faith
