Don't add to the Bible?

This is the argument given against The Book of Mormon.

I’m tired of people saying the Book of Mormon can’t have anything of value because the bible says not to add anything else to it. That’s what the Book of Revelations says, and John, who wrote it, was referring to the book he was writing, not to a compilation of books done hundreds of years later that we call the bible.

Years after John the revelator was dead, the bible was compiled. If you use your same argument as you use against the Book of Mormon, none of the books of the bible could be added to the Book of Revelations.

I believe in the Bible. We use the King James version.

I believe in The Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon talks about another group of people and God’s dealings with them and their belief in the Savior.

It talks about Christ visiting the people and his giving them the gospel.

Here is a quote from The Book of Mormon:
"For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God."

The Book of Mormon, like the Bible, is the word of God, given to help us keep his commandments and return to Him.

It's true.

    The bible was composed through many books. Revalations was one of these seperate books and was inserted together with many other books by King James to form the bible so when it says you cannot add to the word what it means is do not add to the book of revaltions so therefore the book of mormon is not a ripoff of the bible

  2. There is also a verse in Deuteronomy that says the same thing, so what about most of the old Testament. This is one of the weakest arguments against The Book of Mormon I have seen.
