Joseph Smith restored a literal interpretation, belief and reliance on scripture. Though many in the world today incorrectly believe “Mormons” do not believe in the Bible, every teaching, doctrine and principle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is firmly rooted in the Bible. In addition to turning our foundation back to scripture, Joseph Smith was inspired to restore doctrines that had been lost from mainstream Christianity. His translation (LDS, RLDS) clarified doctrine and improved the true meaning of the original authors of scripture. Additionally, the Prophet Joseph Smith received revelations clarifying portions of the Bible (such as D&C 76, 77, 91, and 132).
