Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 6:96; “With regard to this particular point, I will say that you shall judge the matter and be my witnesses. Have we not learned enough with regard to the character of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, to at once believe, admit, and affirm that the Holy Ghost always has and alwaysbrigham young will operate precisely according to the suggestion of the Father?

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 6:96; “We believe that we have a correct idea of the character of the Son from the writings of the Apostles, so far as theybrigham young learned it.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 3:207 – 208; “I have taught you that the spirit is pure, when it comes into the tabernacle. The tabernacle is subject to sin, but the spirit is not. A great many think Brigham Youngthat the spirits of the children of men, when they enter the tabernacles, are totally depraved; this is a mistake.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 3:205; “If I ask [God] to give me wisdom concerning any requirement in life, or in regard to my own course, or that of my friends, my family, my children, or those that I preside over, and get no answer from him, and then do the very best that my judgment will teach me, he is bound to own and honor that transaction, and he will do so to all intents and purposes.” — Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, February 17, 1856
