I am quoting God.. Allen. Yet Allen you have ignored my request to you. How do you know that the men who translated and transcribed the scriptures into the words you are quoting were sufficiently qualified to do it correctly. If you ascribe to them the gift of the Holy Ghost to protect them from error, are you not giving an even greater power of infallibility to these men, than we give to the POPE , which is very limited. You seemed to have missed this question sent previously. I would appreciate it being addressed, coupled with a natural follow on. which also was asked before. How then do you decide which book to follow. Can the Book tell you? Maybe they all do. The Mormonns say their book does, and their book was given them by Joseph smith who says an angel guided him to it. The only way I could trust a Book to be from God, and even then with some doubt , is to see it fall from the sky in much as the manner of the 10 commandments. Yet even in this God entrusted Moses , a man with authority to pass it on. Philip.
