Journal of Discourses 3:48; “If I am not to have the privilege of speaking of Saint and sinner when I please, tie up my mouth and let me go to the grave, for my work would be done. It was for this that they killed Joseph and Hyrum, it is for this that they wish to kill me and my brethren; we know their iniquity, and we will tell of it when the Spirit dictates…” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 4, 1855
2 Corinthians 11:13-14; “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
Brigham must’ve had a commanding presence to convince so many to believe the lies that came from his mouth.
Joe Smith wasn’t killed because he exposed the sinful ways of others. In fact, Smith was killed because of his own sinful lifestyle of polygamy, and thievery, and that’s just the short version of his ne-er-do-well lifestyle.
Be sure you have the truth beloved!
With Love in Christ;
