I was reading the “Introduction” to the Book of Mormon and in the first paragraph third line, it says: “…and contains, as does the Bible, the fulness of the everlasting gospel.” My question: Does the Bible contain the fulness of the everlasting gospel? I had always understood that some of it was “lost or changed?” Thanks for your help to understand.

Dear Missionary,

There is much in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon that does not pertain to the fulness of the everlasting gospel, such as the accounts of wars and the iniquities of men. The fulness of the gospel may be considered to be the combination of all the laws and ordinances that are necessary for one’s salvation. If you had a testimony that the Book of Mormon was the word of God, which it is, there would be no question in your mind that the Bible also contains the fulness of the gospel, simply because the Book of Mormon says it does.
