Is the Bible sufficient? Yes! The doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture is a fundamental tenet of the Christian faith. To say the Scriptures are sufficient means that the Bible is all we need to equip us for a life of faith and service. But when we add to Scripture, we get into all sorts of theological trouble. Cults, movements and false teachers all have sprung up when we’ve strayed from the breathed-out, closed cannon of the Bible.
We do that ourselves when we read how-to books about being a better person, “how to hear from God,” or the many books out there about trips to heaven.
Today we’ve got some headlines to cover: Boy who “came back from heaven” recants story, rebukes Christian retailers. and, New Policy Forces Homeschooled Kids to Justify Their Religious Beliefs.
Up first, we’ll share some stories from the front lines of those who are ministering at LDS temples and with their Mormon friends, and sharing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. Joining us once again is someone who knows Mormonism from the inside out. James Walker is the president of Watchman Fellowship, and a former fourth-generation Mormon himself.
