Moroni's Grammatically Correct Promise

Moroni 10:3-5

Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in yourhearts.
 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truthof it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
However, The Bible teaches us to not trust such spiritual answers

1 John 4:1

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Translation source documents are a matter of conjecture

The above quote is regarding the fragments of the papyri from which Joseph translated the Book of Abraham.  The image background of the Book of Mormon is a juxtaposition intended to spark discussion about the possibility that Joseph also may have gotten the translation of the Book of Mormon wrong.

“The relationship between those fragments and the text we have today is largely a matter of conjecture.”
