Book of Mormon and BibleThis video uses testimonies of several different apostles of Jesus Christ to discuss the importance of The Book of Mormon in God’s plan to establish His doctrine and kingdom. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. It helps me feel closer to Jesus Christ and His teachings. It helps me understand the Bible better. I know it is true because of the Holy Spirit which has testified to me that it is good, right, and true. Elder Tad R. Callister, a disciple of Jesus Christ, uses an analogy in this video that makes it more clear as to why The Book of Mormon is so important:

The Bible is one witness of Jesus Christ; the Book of Mormon is another. Why is this second witness so crucial? The following illustration may help: How many straight lines can you draw through a single point on a piece of paper? The answer is infinite. For a moment, suppose that single point represents the Bible and that hundreds of those straight lines drawn through that point represent different interpretations of the Bible and that each of those interpretations represents a different church.

What happens, however, if on that piece of paper there is a second point representing the Book of Mormon? How many straight lines could you draw between these two reference points: the Bible and the Book of Mormon? Only one. Only one interpretation of Christ’s doctrines survives the testimony of these two witnesses.
