The Book of Mormon abounds with the idea that man can communicate with God. I’m writing as one who knows this is true having experienced it many times.
Joseph Smith said the Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion and that a man could get nearer to God by studying from its teachings than any other book (TPJS, p. 194).
With this thought in mind I purchased a $7 copy. I’m going to highlight those verses in the Book of Mormon that teach how to get nearer to God.
The word “communicate” means to have an exchange, a two-way “conversation”. When men communicate one with another they do so in many ways. When God and man communicate, it too is done in a variety of ways. The basic concept goes something like this. Either God or man initiates the communication process and the other responds.
The Book of Mormon provides numerous examples of this basic model of divine communication. By carefully studying these examples, we can increase our understanding of the process and apply what is learned with the goal of communicating more effectively with Heavenly Father.
I’m looking forward to prayerfully studying from the pages of the Book of Mormon, and writing about those teachings that the prophet Joseph Smith had in mind when he called it the most correct book on earth.
