Subject: [nazarene] Book of Mormon Gospel
Date: Mon, 04 Oct 1999 13:33:19 CDT
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
The phrase "another gospel" was added to the cover of the book by the LDS
Church in 1981.
There are over 100 denominations which use and accept the Book of Mormon,
the LDS church is just the larges (by far).
The Book of Mormon cannot be judged by the theology and actions of the LDS
Church, just as the New Testament cannot be judged by the theology and
actions of Catholicism or Christianity and the Tanak cannot be judged by the
theology or actions of Rabbinic Judaism.
The Gospel message of the Book of Mormon is:
1. We are all sinners, in a lost and fallen state.
(1Ne. 10:6; 2Ne. 2:21b)
2. The penalty for sin is death- an everlasting punishment.
(Mosiah 2:33; Alma 5:42)
3. Salvation comes by grace through faith. It cannot be earned.
(2Ne. 2:4b-6; 26:27; Alma 22:14a; 2Ne. 10:24)
