Mormon Observations on “The Book of Mormon” the Musical – Making Things Up Again

All the posts in this series.

Go back to “Making Things Up Again”.

Adding to the Scriptures
“You’re recklessly warping the words of Jesus!”

It is not good to warp the words of Jesus, whether recklessly or not.

If you’re an individual who thinks that The Book of Mormon is adding to God’s word, you’re right! It most certainly does add to the word of God, as do our other standard works. But these additions are not the additions of men; they are the additions of God himself to his own words, and that is not prohibited by anything in the Bible (for more on this, see the post Adding to the Bible mentioned above).

But how can we ensure that, with God’s word in hand, we do not warp or misinterpret his words? This is another reason why prophets are so important. They help us to understand those things past prophets have spoken (I talk more about this in my post Of Paradigms and Prophets).
