Is Book of Mormon "BOM" really another testament of Jesus Christ?
Lot of christians say that the bible is the only word of God but what if BOM is also another testament of Christ that will give enlightenment and completeness to vagueness of some verses in the bible?
In John 10:16 Christ speaks of other sheep that he must visit. I can't imagine him visiting those people and them not keeping records. The Book of Mormon is the testament of Jesus Christ visiting the people on the American Continent after his ascension into heaven at Jerusalem. It is a translation of those records, and was translated by the power of God through a Prophet and published as the Book of Mormon.
Judging by the history of the founder I would say no it is not another testament. I don't mean to imply that my opinion in any way diminishes the value of those who are Mormon. It is simply that there is a litmus test for prophets which we have evidence was not passed.
The bible clearly states " if anyone brings you another gospel -- let them be accursed. (And stay away from them). MAKE YOUR OWN decision, remembeng they blatant state that it is "ANOTHER gospel".
Also you might look up joseph smith and you will he did not possess the character that God requires of His true messengers.
The Book of Mormon is called "Another Testament of Jesus Christ" in that it testifies to who Jesus Christ is, his atonement and sacrifice for humanity and by which we are able to receive redemption and eternal life. It compliments what the Bible says about who Christ is.

I think that the Christian religion would have been entirely different, if Apostle Paul hadn't screwed things up. It is my firm belief that if Christians really want to be Christ-like, they need to have a dual faith based, religious, belief system. As it is, how can any of us Christians...

I'm wondering how people feel about this subject around here.I truly believe that Mormons are sincere Christians, and that the majority of people who don't agree are simply ignorant to Mormon beliefs, or the Bible.I would like to hear, do you agree that Mormons are Christians? If so, why not, and...

Is Jesus Christ truly immortal, or was he simply an amazing man and a great prophet?Have you read the findings on the Council of Nicea and if so isn't there that the christian religion as we know it today truly began?
