Having a live online respectful conversation meeting with 3 Mormon Missionaries who were SHOCKED that Joseph Smith plagiarized the Holy King James Bible by copying from it verses and chapters into the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith not only plagiarizes the King James Bible by adding things from it word for word into the Book of Mormon from the King James Bible but he also copied the italicized words and wrote those in the Book of Mormon which are not found or written in the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts of the Holy King James Bible. What do Mormons/ Latter Day Saints believe about the Book of Mormon and the Bible? Is the Book of Mormon true or false? What does the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints believe and teach about the Bible, and how should Christians respond to the claims that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and companion to the Bible?
In this friendly debate interview with a Christian talking to 3 LDS Mormon Missionaries (Mormon Elders) on the plagiarism from Joseph Smith copying verses and chapters from the King James Bible into the Book of Mormon and claiming this it was divine inspiration of God. What is the evidence Joseph Smith plagiarized the King James Version Bible? Does Joseph Smith plagiarism of the King James Version Bible prove Joseph Smith is a false prophet? These Mormon Missionaries were shocked to find out Joseph Smith plagiarized the King James Bible in many places in the Book of Mormon.
Some of the examples of Joseph Smith plagiarizing the Holy King James Bible is Isaiah 2 through Isaiah 14 written in Book of Mormon in 2 Nephi 12 through 2 Nephi 24. Also Isaiah 53 is found in the Book of Mormon in Mosiah 14, John 10:16 written in 3 Nephi 15:21, and many other places. What makes this relevant and important that the italicized words contained in the King James Bible which were added by translators and not a part of the manuscripts is that they are found in many places in the Book of Mormon. The question is how did they get there? Why are the exact words which are not inspired contained in the Book of Mormon? The answer is Joseph Smith copied and wrote them down in the Book of Mormon to make it sound more Christian and appear to be the Words of God, and it proves Joseph Smith did not get divine revelation from God. One more point. It is possible that Joseph Smith did get some kind of angelic supernatural experience in which he claims he got revelation, but it was not from God. The Bible warns about false prophets (Matthew 7:15), those who preach another gospel whether people or angels (Galatians 1:6-9), and that there is another Jesus another gospel and another spirit (2 Corinthians 11:4). One thing is fore sure the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and the Bible, but it is a false testament that is not of God and is not another companion to the Bible.
It is important to remember that these young men are that, young men. They have not been in the real world yet and literally all of what they know and believe is most likely from birth about God, Jesus, gospel, Bible, and their books and their prophets. Be loving, gracious, patient, in prayer, and seek to have a conversation with them planting seeds helping them understand the Bible better and help them understand what they believe does not line up with the Bible.
This video is a good resource for Christians on how to effectively witness to Mormons and Mormon Missionaries, and have a respectful conversation planting seeds and Lord willing help them come to know the Jesus and gospel of the Bible. If you are a Latter Day Saint this video will shock you but it is shared out of concern to help you understand that you have been deceived by a false prophet, false gospel and false Jesus.
