The Bible was Preserved




 Was the Bible Corrupted ?

 “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.” Joseph Smith Jr., Eighth Article of Faith

“I believe the Bible as it read when it came from the pen of the original writers. Ignorant translators, careless transcribers, or designing and corrupt priests have committed many errors. As it read, Gen. 6:6, "It repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth"; also, Num. 23:19, "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent"; which I do not believe. But it ought to read, "It repented Noah that God made man." This I believe, and then the other quotation stands fair. If any man will prove to me, by one passage of Holy Writ, one item I believe to be false, I will renounce and disclaim it as far as I promulgated it.”  Joseph Smith, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Section Six 1843-44, p.327







Bible is Inerrant, and Preserved

The Dead Sea Scrolls are solid proof that God perserved the Bible word for word as it was in ancient times. According to Joseph Smith the Bible was corrupted after Christ was on the earth, yet the Dead Sea Scrolls date before that time. Why is that important? Because the portions of the Bible found there in are the same word for word as we have it today. The Dead Sea Scrolls really are a "voice crying from the dust". No angel took them away. You can see them online, or in person if you care too.


Jesus said, “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matthew 5:18


 Jesus said that not even a comma or a period would pass away, much less whole principles, doctrines, or sacred saving ordinances.


 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Tim 3:16-17   


 Not partially furnished, he said "thoroughly furnished".


 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” Isaiah 40:8    


The word of our God shall stand "forever".


Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Ps 119:160 


 "Endures forever".


 “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27 Jesus trusted the integrity of the Bible.


Do you really believe that our loving Heavenly Father would leave His precious children with only a corrupt book to lead them? Why would He go to all that trouble to preserve the Book of Mormon and not do the same for the Bible? That is not the God that I know. He cares about even the little things in my life, I see His hand every day. We need to trust Him, and believe Him.
