Conclusion

CONCLUSION

BRUCE R. McCONKIE

“All who read, ponder, and pray – in faith- are promised that they shall know by the power of the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is the mind and will and voice of the Lord, to all men every where, from this day onward as long as the earth shall stand.

But the Book of Mormon does more. It announces that the Bible is true. It also is the irrefutable witness that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God; that the Lord calls and inspires men today as he did anciently; that living prophets receive revelation in our day and time.

We believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.”
