Watch the video above and talk about it with a friend or mentor.

Key Points:

  • Mormons Believe the Bible Is Not Sufficient
  • Mormons Believe the Bible Is Corrupted
  • Mormons Believe We Need Continuing Revelation

Talk About It
  1. Watch the video together or invite someone to summarize the topic.
  2. What is your initial reaction to this video? Do you disagree with any of it? What jumped out at you?
  3. Read Hebrews 1:1-2. What does it mean that God has spoken to us through his Son? (See How the Son reveals the Father).
  4. How does the Bible relate to that? (See Is the Bible God’s final revelation?)
  5. How do the Dead Sea Scrolls establish the reliability of our contemporary Bible translations? (See: Has the Bible been changed?)
  6. If someone claimed to have a new revelation or new scripture, how would you test the validity of that claim?
  7. How would it change the way you use the Bible if you knew it was incomplete or untrustworthy?
  8. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
