    You will not find what you said in the Bible.

    I know that. The Lord has so much knowledge that it seems absurd to me that all truth exists inside an easily misinterpretal book. After a while, it just becomes the blind leading the blind if there is no prophet to lead the church, but maybe I forgot the scripture where Jesus said, "No prophets shall come after me". Some doctrines you can find in the Bible, but I only believe in the Bible as far as it is translated correctly. I also know Jesus is still revealing to his prophets revelation.

    If the Bible speaks to a matter it is the Bible that is correct.

    What matter do you believe the Bible does not speak about?

    It is the sole authority for Christian teaching, instruction, and conduct.

    a man who is greatly admired or respected.

    "a former juvenile delinquent who would become a counterculture demigod"
    I believe that he is not. Many scriptures say that he is not. One of my favorite scripture is: Matthew 16:13-16 (NIV).

    "When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."

    What is one of your favorite scripture to back up your claim?

    Here is my second sets of scriptures to back my claim.

    "You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him. you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it." When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. "Look," he said, "I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."

    Acts 7:51-56

    Jesus is God.

    I do not have a reference but Thomas said of to Jesus my Lord and my God! Paul wrote Colossians 2:9 NASB. I believe Jesus to be the Son of God and that may mean that He is God.

    I find this scripture the best way to describe what I believe.

    21 And the angel said unto me: Knowest thou the meaning of the book?

    22 And I said unto him: I know not.

    23 And he said: Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew. And I, Nephi, beheld it; and he said unto me: The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many; nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles.

    24 And the angel of the Lord said unto me: Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew; and when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew it contained the fulness of the gospel of the Lord, of whom the twelve apostles bear record; and they bear record according to the truth which is in the Lamb of God.

    25 Wherefore, these things go forth from the Jews in purity unto the Gentiles, according to the truth which is in God.

    26 And after they go forth by the hand of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, from the Jews unto the Gentiles, thou seest the formation of that 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.

    27 And all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men.

    28 Wherefore, thou seest that after the book hath gone forth through the hands of the great and abominable church, that there are many plain and precious things taken away from the book, which is the book of the Lamb of God.

    29 And after these plain and precious things were taken away it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles; and after it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles, yea, even across the many waters which thou hast seen with the Gentiles which have gone forth out of captivity, thou seestóbecause of the many plain and precious things which have been taken out of the book, which were plain unto the understanding of the children of men, according to the plainness which is in the Lamb of Godóbecause of these things which are taken away out of the gospel of the Lamb, an exceedingly great many do stumble, yea, insomuch that Satan hath great power over them.
    (1 Nephi 13: 21-29)
    I hope that helps clarify what I meant. I don't think Christ neglected to tell us of the important doctrines by which we can be saved. We believe all that God has revealed, all that he does now reveal, and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

    I can't read this. I think that it comes from the Book of Mormon.

    You know if I died today and I was wrong, I wouldn't regret believing in it because if God loved me, he'd understand why I believed so much. If a flood happens, it's better to prepare yourself with something than nothing.
