October 12 – 1 John 5:6-7; “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
Today is another example of how the Church takes words that sound ‘Christian’ and adds just a small word here and there to confuse the masses. John said ‘Spirit is truth’. Joseph F. Smith said; ‘The Holy Ghost is the light of Christ, the Spirit of Truth’. Don’t be misled my friend! The Spirit is not intelligence that radiates His power from other places!
“President Joseph F. Smith said: “The Holy Ghost as a personage of Spirit can no more be omnipresent in person than can the Father or the Son, but by his intelligence, his knowledge, his power and influence, over and through the laws of nature, he is and can be omnipresent throughout all the works of God. It is not the Holy Ghost who in person lighteth every man who is born into the world, but it is the light of Christ, the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the source of intelligence, which permeates all nature, which lighteth every man and fills the immensity of space. You may call it the Spirit of God, you may call it the influence of God’s intelligence, you may call it the substance of his power; no matter what it is called, it is the spirit of intelligence that permeates the universe and gives to the spirits of men understanding, just as Job said. Job. 32:8; D. & C. 88:3-13.” Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 752.
