High Esteem for Mormon Elders

Journal of Discourses, 4:40; “In the days of Joseph [Smith] it was considered a great privilege to be permitted to speak to a member of Congress, but twenty-six years will not pass away before the Elders of this Church will be as much thought of as the kings on their thrones.”


Ooops.  No one went forth referring to Mormon elders as kings.

Unbelievably, Young continued on with proclaiming Jesus Christ would be the president while others, meaning non-Mormons, will all go to hell.  Read on….

“…I desire them to let us alone… Let them attend to their own business, and we will build up Zion while they go to hell. Jesus Christ will be the President, and we are his officers, and they will have to leave the ground: for they will find that Jesus has the right of soil…I have frequently told you, and I tell you again, that the very report of the Church and kingdom of God on earth is a terror to all nations…” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, August 31, 1856

Colossians 4:6; “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

Do the words of the prophet Brigham Young sound godly?  That’s all you have to do. Compare these things with the Bible to determine if it sounds like a word from the Lord.

Is God’s good news a terror to all men or is it a message that God has provided in that God has sent His Son to die so you will be saved. Where in the gospel does it say that Jesus will be president because he has the right of soil?
