After considerable letter writing between a Mormon and Cephas Ministry the following ended the conversation:

"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:14)
Woe unto you, [ye] blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! (Matthew 23:16)

[Ye] fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? (Matthew 23:17)

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:5)

8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For [it is] a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. (Hebrews 13)

Jesus said it is "finished". I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. (John 17:4)
What we are to know is HIS WORD, since He is God Himself. Why would there be more??

'Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity [shall be] upon him." (Numbers 15:31)

And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak. (Numbers 22:38)
The word that anyone speaks in the name of God needs to be in the Holy Scriptures or it doesn't apply.

And the LORD said unto me, They have well [spoken that] which they have spoken. (Deuteronomy 18:17)

18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require [it] of him. 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?

22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that [is] the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, [but] the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18)

This proves that the Word of the Lord is true because Joseph Smith, Jr. who founded the Church of Jesus Christ and of Latter-day Saints died an untimely death. We have 52 false prophecies by Joseph Smith, Jr. to prove he was a false prophet.

22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king. (1 Samuel 15)

And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD [be] God, follow him: but if Baal, [then] follow him. And the people answered him not a word. (1 Kings 18:21)

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1)

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand. (Acts 4:4)

Why do we need anything else but simply believing what was written?
But the word of God grew and multiplied. (Acts 12:24)

So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)
