The Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) use the King James Bible as the official version of the Bible in English. However, they do have their own version of it. While the text is the same, there are a few special additions in the form of footnotes, summaries, a Bible Dictionary and other tools that help Mormons study the Bible. These tools are also valuable to non-Mormons who want to understand how Mormons view the Bible.
One of the most amazing hymns I’ve heard sung is the hymn, “I Believe in Christ.” You can listen to the song by going to the musical representation of the hymn. Simply click on “I Believe in Christ.”
For someone new to the Mormon church (officially known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), there might be an amazing amount of really cool stuff to learn.
I am a Mormon. I didn’t use to be. I belonged, as a child, to a different denomination. My parents were introduced to the church through a man my mother worked for.
With the conditions in the world being what they are, the scriptures become more and more a beacon of peace. I can’t tell you enough how much solace they bring – it doesn’t matter whether I’m feeling tired or discouraged or sad, the scriptures will restore my soul.
The Lord loves us. He desires to bless us. And one of the best ways we can find those blessings is by studying His word as contained in the scriptures.
President Henry B. Eyring stated:
I find some of the best study aids and resources for studying the scriptures can be found in the lives of others. How have others applied the truths contained within the living word of God? How have they stood faithful to the truths they understand?
For those who are new to scripture study, the scriptures themselves can seem intimidating. There’s a whole lot of tiny print in the scripture sets! But never fear, there are some terrific tools that will bring great enjoyment as you “feast” upon the word of the Lord.
