Does the English text Book of Mormon have just as much authority as, say, the Greek text of Matthew's Gospel ? The New Testament part of the Holy Bible, that is to say the collection of volumes contained in, for example, the Authorised Version, from Matthew to Revelation, is compiled from thousands of manuscripts, either partial, fragmented or (rarely) ...

The authority given to the resurrected and glorified Christ includes his role as mediator for sinful humans, just as he also has the roles of Priest and King. Since ascending to heaven, sinful humanity still needs intercession, because they cannot approach a holy and righteous God. The authority granted to the Son of God includes his role as intercessor in ...

I think your question stems from a misunderstanding of the nature of authority. To have authority does not simply mean to have absolute control over something. Authority is often - even usually - given to someone by someone else, and is exercised on their behalf. An army officer has authority over his men, but he also receives his own orders and is expected ...

I'll assume this question is based on Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. The word "name", G3686 - onoma, is defined by Outline of Biblical Usage as: the name is used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is ...

The Deaf and Mute. God loves all people. Some cannot utter a word and use sign language, so pronunciation must not be a showstopper for God. A Different Jesus. The meaning behind the name – personality, character, teachings, actions and relationship to the Father, to Israel and its history (as savior) - is more important than the name. 4 For if someone ...

This can be misleading for all three equally have the one nature of Deity. But the three relate to each other in particular ways, as they have functions and roles within the one Being ...

First, the original text of what became known as “The Book of Mormon” was Reformed Egyptian hieroglyphics, plus Chaldaic, Assyriac and Arabic, inscribed on gold plates, Smith said, which had to be translated by him into English. Smith apparently kept them in a box about 8 inches by 8 inches, and 5 inches thick; a mass of gold that size would weigh about 250 ...

Does the English text Book of Mormon have just as much authority as, say, the Greek text of Matthew's Gospel or the Hebrew text of Genesis? There is always some meaning lost in any translation from one language to another. Given this fact, I'd say it has the same amount of authority as English translation of Matthew (JST version). It is also the closest ...

Lip and tongue and throat and mouth movements save no one. Letters, symbols, figures and numbers save no one. Jesus Christ the King of Israel, and the incarnate Son of God saves. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved. Now, does the name Yeshua save people? It means &...

Your question: According to the Bible how does one receive the gift of the Holy Ghost? Does one automatically receive the Holy Ghost after they accept Christ or does it have to be received through the laying on of hands as spoken of in Acts 8? There is some of both. The Holy Ghost is needed by all so they can know Jesus is Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:3) ...
