How has having both the Book of Mormon and the Bible been a blessing to you?
Mormon’s abridgment of the record is for us. Mormon hides the plates in the Hill Cumorah except for a few plates which he gives to his son, Moroni. The Nephites fall and Mormon laments them. For the benefit of those who will read the record in the latter-days, Mormon outlines what we must do to be saved.
“Therefore repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus, and lay hold upon the gospel of Christ, which shall be set before you, not only in this record but also in the record which shall come unto the Gentiles from the Jews, which record shall come from the Gentiles unto you.”
Rachael D: I like Mormon 7:8-10, Mormon teaches us that the gospel of Christ is written in these records and in the Bible. The records are written that we may believe in Christ. If we believe then we should follow the example of the saviour. It is a blessing to have the gospel of Christ written down by prophets of God so that we can learn how to follow them.
