From the perspective of traditional Christianity, the claims of Mormonism are outrageous. Arguably their most outrageous claim is that the early Christian church, one or more of them, removed “many plain and precious parts” from the scriptures shortly after the death and resurrection of the Savior. What was left out when the New Testament was first put together many centuries ago? Who decided what was to be included? Upon what basis or criteria were some early Christian works deemed worthy while others were not? Perhaps more importantly, who authorized these scholars and clergymen to decided for all of us what is and is not scripture? How can we be sure that they were objective and unbiased in their scholarship? Was something that should have been included left out? Was anything that should have been left out included?
If we do not have answers to all of these these questions, can we be certain that our understanding of Christian doctrine is approved by the Savior? Those who feel that Mormons are not Christians because some of their claims are outrageous may be the ones who are truly outrageous, not the Mormons. If we are honest and humble followers of Christ, concern should be true or false, not orthodox or heretical.
I want to know what true scripture was left out of the Bible. How do I find out? Help me out here.
