Mormon - Chapter 7

Over and over again The Book of Mormon tells us the simple truth that the way to happiness is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and repentance.  It is plain and easy to understand and yet we so often fail to get it.  Endless happiness is a result of allowing the Atonement of Christ to work it's miracle in our lives.

Mormon tells us in this chapter that The Bible and The Book of Mormon support each other.
9 For behold, this is written for the intent that ye may believe that; and if ye believe that ye will believe this also; and if ye believe this ye will know concerning your fathers, and also the marvelous works which were wrought by the power of God among them.
It is interesting that he is so bold as to declare that if we believe the Bible we will also believe The Book of Mormon.  I've always looked at it the other way around, seeing that lots of folks seem to believe the Bible and yet reject "another testament of Jesus Christ."  It is not the Bible that teaches them to reject modern revelation, but rather the precepts of men.  I have never known a single person who honestly sought to know the truth of The Book of Mormon, who did not come to know of its truth.  If people who are honest believe the Bible, it will indeed affirm that the book Mormon here provides for us, is also of God.
