According to the Book of Mormon, the Bible went through the hands of a “great and abominable church, which is most abominable above all other churches; for behold, they have taken away from the gospel of the Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious; and also many covenants of the Lord have they taken away” (1 Nephi ). Revelation is Christ-Centered () T he book of Revelation opens by telling us that it is about when it says,”The revelation of Jesus Christ” (Rev ). The little phrase “of Jesus Christ” is what is called an “objective genitive” in Greek grammar. This means that the book is a revelation about Jesus is the “object,” the main theme the book is intending to communicate. At the heart of Christian ethics is the conviction that our firm basis for knowing the true, the good, and the right is divine revelation. Christianity is not a life system that operates on the basis of speculative reason or pragmatic expediency. We assert boldly that God has revealed to us who He is, who we are, and how we are expected to relate to Him.
