D&C 42:6; “And ye shall go forth in the power of my Spirit, preaching my gospel, two by two, in my name, lifting up your voices as with the sound of a trump, declaring my word like unto angels of God.” – February 9, 1831



If you added a little melodramatic flair Mark 6:7 would sound much like what Joseph commanded his followers to do. Ah, but then we see how just six years later Smith would once again contradict himself by telling the elders they need to go out one by one.

HC 2:431; “…the Elders would go forth, and each must stand for himself, as it was not necessary for them to be sent out, two by two, as in former times, but to go in all meekness, in sobriety, and preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified…This I delivered by way of commandment; and all who observe it not, will pull down persecution upon their heads” – March 30, 1836
