Mormon 1:1

Wanted to study some scriptures from the Book of Mormon again.  These are just some notes and thoughts as I read the verses.  

And now I, Mormon, make a record of the things which I have both seen and heard, and call it the Book of Mormon.

Some people's testimonies last a long long time.  Repetitious phrases and empty words sometimes hardly last until they are finished being spoken.  On the other hand a God inspired record can last hundreds of years and are even recorded in heaven (D&C 62:3).  It's interesting how oftentimes people's records of truth gain more importance and influence after they die. 

Mormon made a record of "things heard and seen".  The rest of this chapter shows this included temporal events but was in the context of spiritual things.
