If you weren't a mormon with the fallacious belief in the three-person mormon godhead, you wouldn't even have to ask that question.

My questions were rhetorical.

According to Acts 1:9-11, Jesus was taken up into heaven and will return like manner. He did not remain physically on Earth, performing miracles for everyone to see. Had He done so, that would be "proof" to everyone that He is the Son of God, who has all power, including power over death.

Of course, as every Christian should know, in this life we "walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7). Jesus promised that His disciples would receive power and the Holy Ghost after His ascension into heaven (Acts 1:8). Although we may not see Him, we can know that Jesus is the Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, by the witness of the Holy Ghost.

Likewise, we can know that the Book of Mormon is true, not by seeing the golden plates, but by the witness of the Holy Ghost.

You are asserting that God’s Spirit would affirm as true a book of fictional places, fictional people, and fictional events. And you even try to make the case that God proves The Christ by His Holy Spirit witness, yet ignore that God has given a myriad of physical proof to consult, yet there is exactly zero physical proof for the Smithian poorly written novel, the B of M. Well, I suppose the god of Mormonism, the god whom your founders taught had to ‘gain the attributes of godhood’ would affirm fiction as fact for Mormons, but the God Who’s name is I AM would not. ... And you wonder why a handful of Christians continue to oppose the demonic religion named Mormonism? Wow, just wow.

So, are you claiming that the golden plates were/are as real as Jesus Christ?

Thanks for clearing that up. The continual attempt by mormonism to downgrade Christ to fit the mormon template is really obvious in some posts here.

Mormonism claims "He WAS just a man who had to "work His way up" to Godhood.

And, when He returns, EVERY eye will see Him; NOT just JS and others in secluded places!

No... we can know that the Book of Mormon is FALSE, because there is NOTHING in it that has EVER been found on Earth.

The FULLNESS of the Gospel is NOT in it; the SACRED Temple Rites® of MORMONism are not in it; and SURELY not by the WITNESS of the HOLY GHOST - for even mere BEREANS looked to the SCRIPTURES to see if what they were being told was true, and did NOT rely on some vague FEELING they had for assurance.
