Mormon 4:66-68 - "66 And again I speak unto you, who deny the revelations of God, and say that they are done away, that there are no revelations, nor prophecies, nor gifts, nor healing, nor speaking with tongues, and the interpretation of tongues. 67 Behold I say unto you, He that denieth these things, knoweth not the gospel of Christ; yea, he has not read the scriptures; if so, he does not understand them. 68 For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and for ever; and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing."
Church of Christ Articles of Faith and Practice #10 - We believe in the principle of continuous revelation; that the canon of scripture is not full, that God inspires men in every age and among all people, and that He speaks when, where, and through whom He may choose. (Amos 3: 7; Acts 2: 17-18; 2 Pet 1 : 21 ; 1 Ne 1:82-83)
Church of Christ Articles of Faith and Practice #9 - We believe that in the Bible is contained the word of God, that the Book of Mormon is an added witness for Christ, and that these contain the "fullness of the gospel." (BC 44:13) (Ezek 37:15-20; 1 Ne 3:157-166, 191-196)
Using the Bible and Book of Mormon as our standard, with guidance from the Holy Ghost, each revelation must be considered singly and must stand on its own merit as being harmonious with the Bible and the Book of Mormon.
