The Book of Mormon has never guided me off the path to righteousness.

The Book of Mormon has never guided me off the path to righteousness.
.
There are many worldly things, and I’ve guided myself off the beaten path—not The Book of Mormon. When “controllable” things go horribly wrong, it’s usually 99.9% my fault. When I make choices, I need to take ownership—so do you.
.
Every time I’m indulged in studying The Book of Mormon, there is a different awareness in my life. I see things more apparent than usual. There is an undoubted sense of peace in my life. How can this be if the book were of the devil’s doing?
.
I would like those who believe the book is of the devil to sit down with me and listen to my life story. When I am done, I would like to gather their notes and see what wicked things I’ve done by abiding by the precepts of The Book of Mormon. I would like them to rip my character apart for all the horrible things they wrote down.
.
The only things that would be on their notepad would be things I may have participated in when The Book of Mormon wasn’t at the center of my heart. I’m lead to do good things. I’m asked to do hard things. I’m warned to love those who do wrong to me and love them regardless.

Find out for yourself. Moroni 10:3-5.
.
“Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how ​​​merciful​ the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ​​​ponder​ it in your ​​​hearts​.
​​​.
And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ​​​ask​ God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not ​​​true​; and if ye shall ask with a ​​​sincere heart​, with ​​​real intent​, having ​​​faith​ in Christ, he will ​​​manifest​ the ​​​truth​ of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
.
​​​And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may ​​​know​ the ​​​truth​ of all things.”
.
Stop listening to the world and listen to Him. I testify to you The Book of Mormon is the world of God. The Bible and The Book of Mormon complement each other like your left hand to your right.
.
Hear Him!
