The Book of Mormon

Probably one of the best talks given in the history of General Conference. Elder Holland sure knows how to get a point across. I believe the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ. I know it teaches truth. I know that God will testify to the hearts of all its readers that it is correct. My testimony echos that of God's chosen disciples...
"For 179 years this book has been examined and attacked, denied and deconstructed, targeted and torn apart like perhaps no other book in modern religious history—perhaps like no other book in any religious history. And still it stands. Failed theories about its origins have been born and parroted and have died—from Ethan Smith to Solomon Spaulding to deranged paranoid to cunning genius. None of these frankly pathetic answers for this book has ever withstood examination because there is no other answer than the one Joseph gave as its young unlearned translator. In this I stand with my own great-grandfather, who said simply enough, 'No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so.'" 
If you question the Book of Mormon, if you don't know what it is, if you want to learn more, I invite each of you to watch this video. Let the Spirit touch your hearts to testify of the truth. Christ is standing at our door knocking. LET HIM IN!
