How Do We Know Our Bible is Accurate? The Book of Mormon teaches that "plain and precious" teachings were lost from the Bible. This is why Mormons believe that Joseph Smith was called by God to restore these so-called missing truths through Mormonism. But Christ said "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24:35). Thus, nothing was lost from the Bible. Here in this video Chip shows us how everything that we now see in archaeology, verifies this fact, that our Bible is accurate and has been meticulously preserved.
