“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:57,58) – About A.D. 55.

• The Book Of Mormon = Plagiarism •
“Therefore, I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in good works, that Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent, may seal you his, that you may be brought to heaven, that ye may have everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power, and justice, and mercy of him who created all things, in heaven and in earth, who is God above all. Amen.” (Mosiah 5:15) – About 124 B.C.

Verses from the King James Version of 1 Corinthians, chapter 15, were copied and pasted into the Book of Mormon. These verses can be found in Mosiah, chapter 5. Details of what took place can be found below…

Christians would agree that we are called to be steadfast and unmovable, always abounding in the works of the Lord. At the same time, we would turn to 1 Corinthians, chapter 15, for that reference. This is because Paul wrote to the church in Corinth on this very topic. However, if you are a Mormon, they would not know which place to look, their Bible or Book of Mormon. This is because the same phrase is in both places. We see the reference from Paul in the Bible, and from King Benjamin in the Book of Mormon. What is odd here is that this supposed King Benjamin character was from 124 B.C. This was long before Paul’s ministry, which was around 60 A.D. It is written, “but thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:57,58) Pay close attention to the words in bold, for you will see the same phrase in a writing that supposedly predates Paul next. Plagiarism was definitely a factor in this.

The Book of Mormon sounds similar to the Bible because it includes hundreds of verses from the Biblical text. At the surface, Mormons may have a hard time knowing where the Bible is plagiarized in the Book of Mormon. Thankfully we have sites like “Christianity Vs Mormonism” (christvm.com) that have everything listed in a chart. This includes a reference from Paul’s writings. So a fictional character named "King Benjamin", somehow knew Paul around 124 B.C. It is written, “therefore, I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in good works, that Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent, may seal you his, that you may be brought to heaven, that ye may have everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power, and justice, and mercy of him who created all things, in heaven and in earth, who is God above all. Amen.” (Mosiah 5:15) The devil loves what we see in the Book of Mormon. This book takes people's attention away from reading the Bible, which is what he wants. Putting more attention to his man-made book was in his game plan from the beginning. Therefore, the Book of Mormon is not from God but from Satan. This is the truth of God. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will be called by You and do Your will also as it is in heaven. Not just to learn at church, but to anxiously look to You in our everyday lives. To be steadfast in the faith and unmovable in what You have taught us in the bible, not what we think is true. Too many people are unmovable in their own beliefs. This needs to be stopped in order for the Holy Spirit to lead them. I know that You are the one true God, who wants to lead us by the hand through the Spirit. How we can abound in good works when we live for You, Jesus. This labor is not in vain, for to live for You is where true joy comes from. There are many trials that come our way, especially when we are out in Your harvest. Sure, people may not experience this if they only go to church and keep everything they learn to themselves. This is what I call a person that is not born again, but dead in their faith. You know how dead my faith was for many years of my life. I had a form of godliness in me but denied Your power. Thankfully, I didn’t go off course for You to save me. Lead me now and forever. I love You. Amen.
