SCRIPTURE: “We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.” -Article of Faith 8, Pearl of Great Price. [source]
COMMENTARY: Any guesses as to why many translation errors in the King James Version of the Bible are also found in the Book of Mormon? If the Bible is not the word of God in places where the translators messed up, does that mean the Book of Mormon is also not the word of God in places where Joseph copied the errors from the KJV translation? I’m not sure how anyone could argue otherwise. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
