Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 112-113 “… who can describe an angel of light? If Satan should appear as one in glory, who can tell his color, his signs, his appearance, his glory—or what is the manner of his manifestation?
Who can drag into daylight and develop the hidden mysteries of the false spirits that so frequently are made manifest among the Latter-day Saints?
We answer that no man can do this without the Priesthood…A man must have the discerning of spirits before he can drag into daylight this hellish influence and unfold it unto the world in all its soul-destroying, diabolical, and horrid colors; for nothing is a greater injury to the children of men than to be under the influence of a false spirit when they think they have the Spirit of God. History of the Church 4:571–581.”
2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
Believers don’t need a false priestcraft to discern evil. Believers have God’s Holy Spirit, and the Bible to guide, and warn of dangers that come from false teachers like Joseph Smith.
Sadly, Mormons are those whom Smith spoke of when it comes to being under the influence of false spirits. Indeed, believing in false teachers have given untold numbers of people a false sense of hope which is exactly what Mormonism is all about. Pray for those who believe this man’s conniving ways!
