How Can We Know that the Bible is  Accurate?

A Short History of Biblical Manuscripts and Translations

This program reviews in detail the extraordinarily inaccurate statements made about the accuracy of the Bible by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has misinformed and driven its membership away from the True Word of God.

The MOST Far-Reaching and the most Significant Doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is that you cannot Trust the Word of God found in the Bible. This lack of trust in the Bible is taught to Mormons 1) In their 8th Article of Faith and 2) Within the Mormon Bible Dictionary, under Bible / Old Testament / Dead Sea Scrolls: “The Dead Sea Scrolls, some of which are believed to be as early as the 2nd century B.C., give evidence that the Old Testament text was corrupted at least by that time.”

So here the Mormon Bible Dictionary states that the Dead Sea Scrolls were Corrupt! Yet they do not point out WHERE it is corrupt! Then in 1 Nephi 13:24-26 The Book of Mormon states that the Bible was pure and accurate up until the time of the Apostles. So even the Book of Mormon Contradicts Mormon Doctrine.

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
