The LDS Church uses the Bible as one of several sources of Scripture. They believe the Bible to be the Word of God “as far as it is translated correctly” and only utilize the King James Version. The LDS Church considers the Bible as unreliable by claiming that human error must have occurred when it was “compiled, organized, translated, and transcribed.” As a result, many “plain and precious truths” have been lost. Joseph Smith “restored” the gospel by providing the missing parts that were lost. As a result, the Bible is translated correctly only when LDS Scriptures back it up.

Biblical Christianity teaches
The Bible is the inerrant and inspired Word of God. Everything we need to know for salvation and righteousness is contained in the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:15-17) Its historical accuracy, textual preservation, and archaeological proof point to the fact that the Bible we have today is the same Bible of the early Christian Church.
