Journal of Discourses 9:312; “All those who believe in their hearts and confess with their mouths that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet, at the same time trying with their might to live the holy principles Joseph the Prophet has revealed, are in possession of the Holy Spirit of God and are entitled to a fullness.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, July 13, 1862
1 John 4:2; “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God”.
Romans 10:9-10; “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Like yesterday, our reference today goes to show how the Church takes one, or two scriptures, and adds a couple of words to completely twist the meaning of what God said.
Brigham’s instructions aren’t about the gospel of Jesus Christ at all! These words do nothing but promote the gospel of Joseph Smith. How very, very sad.
Pray for those who still believe this because in reality, this is true Mormonism.
With Love in Christ;
