  • LOL while I see your point totally, I still don't trust the book of mormon fully either

    all religious books have great values and lessons in them, but I honestly know that man wrote all of them so they are fallible

  • It's called having faith. It is THAT simple. You don't bash other religions and call yourself a Jesus believing anything, cause it's just hypocritical.

  • yup you are right vbruno its called faith
    Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (KJV)
    This is my faviorte verse
    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (KJV)

  • OP - to make your question even more substantial, the New Testament was written a hundred years after Jesus died. The Old Testament even longer after the actual events. The identities of some of the authors are still unknown. It is very curious.
