Computers and Scriptures

Have you ever wondered why there is more than one book of Scripture?

Why couldn't Moses have written everythuing we need?

Why did other men, Prophets, continue to write more Scripture?

Well, it is kinda like a Computer.

This is a Motherboard.
A Motherboard is what keeps everything together and allows all the other computer parts to function.

This is a Video Card.
This individual Chip processes each pixel on the screen, and tells the computer what to show.

This is a Sound Card.
Everything you Hear comes from this.  Sometimes the Card is the problem, not your volume.

These are RAM sticks.
RAM stands for Readily Accessable Memory.
This is what determines how fast your computer can process things.

The Scriptures act much like a Computer.  Each individual Book of Scripture does what is needed, to help people learn and understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Not every book of Scripture details every single principle of the Gospel, so you must read all of them in order to make the Gospel Functional.

The Video Card could be considered 'Visions'.

"Where there is no vision, the people perish"

The Sound Card could be 'Hearing the Word of the Lord'.

"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God,
that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Lord."

The Motherboard is the Spirit, keeping everything together.  Without the Spirit we would not have our own personal testimony that the Scriptures are true, and it would be quite difficult to understand how each peace of Scripture fits in with the rest.

The RAM is our mind.  When we learn something from the Scriptures, we need to do whatever we can to remember what we learn, and Apply it into our lives.  It does no good to go to church or to read the Scriptures if we don't act upon what has been revealed.

So just like a Computer has many different parts that make it work, the Gospel calls for a Prophet to reveal the Will of the Lord in Modern times.  Just as the Children of Israel needed Joshua after Moses, and later Elisha after Elijah.  The Lord set Peter as the Chief Apostle, founding the church upon the Rock of Revelation, and after Christ's ascension Peter was the Prophet on the Earth.  The computer of the Gospel is now functioning under the Prophetic Guidance of Thomas S. Monson.
