What I find amazing is that everyday all around us in every area it seems people are rearranging or revising truth!
And you come along thinking that no such thing took place in Ancient of Days!
We have the first 5 books of Moses which is a Digest of all the events that took place up to the time of Moses!
We have a gap between Malachi and Matthew of the written word!
The LDS has a record going back 600 BC which fill in much of the gaps!
The LDS is also promised that another 2/3rds of the Book of Mormon records will also come forth in the Lord time!
In the Jewish religion they have a promise that their concept of the Messiah will come and they do not believe the NT is valid which should offend them and I am sure the mainstream believe they don't have all the word!
Try being consistant in your thinking!
Who has removed "plain and precious things" from the Bible? According to 1 Nephi 13:26, the "great and abominable church" did. And, 1 Nephi 13:27 informs us, "all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men." The same chapter calls the state of these individuals an "awful state of blindness (v. 32)," which is to be remedied by other "records" being revealed to men which "shall establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken away from them" (v. 40).
Resty, I am consistant in my thinking.
