Christ Suffered in Proportion to His Intelligence – Mormon Quotes

Journal of Discourses 8:115; A person possessing the power of the Gods has that power to sustain him in all his trials and sufferings. He has power and faith to endure unto sweating blood, to bearing thorns, and to being nailed upon a cross, as patiently as did our Saviour. Is this speaking disparagingly of his character? Not in the least. Many of our people have suffered unto death. Could a God do more? He could not. Could he suffer more? Only in proportion to his intelligence, faith, and power, which also proportionally sustain him in his sufferings.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 8, 1860

1 Corinthians 1:2325But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

I am so grateful I don’t have whatever power from the gods that Brigham Young is speaking about!  Their gods are nothing.
