DENOMINATIONAL VIEW OF THE BIBLE by steve finnell
Mormons view of the Bible
According to the 8th Article of Faith, Mormons "believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly." The Bible is considered as a correct book, but contains passages either translated incorrectly and/or interpreted incorrectly, and is also missing passages. The most important aid to Latter-Day Saints when reading the Bible, and any other Scriptures is the guidance of the Holy Ghost.
Mormons are honest enough to admit they believe the Bible as long as it does not conflict with Mormon doctrine.
Most denomination believe the Bible is true as long as it is not contrary to the doctrine found in their creed books. The difference is they are not honest enough to admit their man-made creeds supersede the Bible.
Baptist/Calvinists do not believe, (Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)
Baptist/Calvinist believe, Acts 2:38 should have been written ".....Repent, and be baptized because you sins have already been forgiven. And you received salvation and the Holy Spirit the minute you believed."
Baptist/Calvinists do not believe, (1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrine of demons.(NKJV)
Baptists/Calvinists believe that, 1Timothy 4:1 should have been translated,"..Now the Spirit says once you are saved you cannot depart from the faith. And if you do depart you were never saved in the first place."
Denominations such as Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Methodist, Quakers etc. all believe that creed books and other records of church doctrine void the Bible if it contradicts denominational doctrine.
