The Greatest Worth of John Whitmer
D&C 15:6; “And now, behold, I say unto you, that the thing which will be of the most worth unto you will be to declare repentance unto this people, that you may bring souls unto me, that you may rest with them in the kingdom of my Father. Amen.”
Revelation to John Whitmer in Fayette, NY in June 1829. History of the Church 1:50.
John Whitmer was excommunicated in the Far West fiasco along with the rest of his family in April 1838. Clearly, this gospel wasn’t worth all that much to Mr. Whitmer.
