The Word of God

Saturday morning, we had our preparation meeting. The subject for the week had been the Book of Mormon. Elder Hurley gave the talk on it and this is what struck me.
He summarized the whole week by listing some important points about the Book of Mormon.

1. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and testifies that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the World.

2. The Book of Mormon was Translated by Joseph
Smith through the gift and power of God.

3. Any one can know the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon by doing as Moroni directs in Moroni 10:4-5 which essentially says, read it and then ask God if it is true. God will tell you whether it is true or not.

I had always known these things, but had never listed them in this way. If the Book of Mormon is true then Joseph Smith is a Prophet and has restored the fullness of Christ's true church to the earth for this dispensation. I testify that it is true and Joseph Smith was the Prophet of the restoration.
