Mormon Decisions 10Faith of a Scientist, p 23; “A prophet is wonderful because he sometimes speaks for the Lord. This occurs on certain occasions when the Lord wills it. On other occasions, he speaks for himself, and one of the wonderful doctrines of the Church is that we don’t believe in the infallibility of any mortal.” – Apostle Henry Eyring

Mormon Decisions 10The Seer, pp 134-135; “Each succeeding generation of Gods follow the example of the preceding ones: each generation have their wives, who raise up from the fruit of their loins immortal spirits: when their families become numerous, they organize new worlds for them…. [T]hey place their families upon the same….” – Orson Pratt,  1853

Mormon Decisions 10Mormon Doctrine, p 208; “See DEVIL, SERPENT. Dragons belong to the serpent family; they are fabulous monsters — often represented as winged serpents breathing fire. Traditionally fierce and relentless in combat, it is possible that later-age concepts of them grew from memories of the pre-flood dinosaurs. In any event, the term dragon was applied with great propriety by John to Satan. (Rev. 12; 13:2-4; 16:13; 20:2.) As the fiercest and most dreaded of serpents, the name is certainly appropriate for the most fierce and relentlessly wicked of all beings.” – Bruce McConkie

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 11:221; “Where did this commandment come from in relation to polygamy? It also came from God…When this system was first introduced among this people, it was one of the greatest crosses that ever was taken up by any set of men since the world stood…When I see any of our people, men or women, opposing a principle of this kind, I have years ago set them down as on the high road to apostacy, and I do to-day; I consider them apostates…” – John Taylor, Salt Lake City, April 7, 1866

Mormon Decisions 10“Minutes of the Meeting of the Council of the Twelve in Historian’s Upper Room,” April 5, 1860, 10 a.m; “I have heard brother Brigham say that Adam is the Father of our spirits, and he came here with his resurrected body, to fall for his own children; and I said to him, it leads to an endless number of falls, which leads to sorrow and death: that is revolting to my feelings, even if it were not sustained by revelation.” – Orson Pratt

Mormon Decisions 10Deposition of a Disciple, p 41; “A righteous people who trust in God are far more apt to be blessed with the kind of weather and food and brotherhood that makes famine less likely and sharing more likely than are people who have dismissed the Fatherhood of God and who then make an empty plea for the brotherhood of man. Those who live unrighteously will bring upon themselves the very calamities about which they are complaining in advance.” – Apostle Neal A. Maxwell

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, ‘The Strength to Endure,’ October 2013; “Our ability to endure to the end in righteousness will be in direct proportion to the strength of our testimony and the depth of our conversion. When our testimonies are strong and we are truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ, our choices will be inspired by the Holy Ghost, they will be Christ-centered, and they will support our desire to endure in righteousness.” –   Richard J. Maynes

Mormon Decisions 10History of the Church 3:228; “This poor man who professes to be much of a prophet, has no other dumb *** to ride but David Whitmer, to forbid his madness when he goes up to curse Israel; and this *** not being of the same kind as Balaam’s, therefore, the angel notwithstanding appeared unto him, yet he could not penetrate his understanding sufficiently, but that he prays out cursings instead of blessings. Poor ***!” – December 16, 1838

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, ‘The Keystone of Our Religion’, January 2004; “It is important to know what the Book of Mormon is not. It is not primarily a history, although much of what it contains is historical…The test for understanding this sacred book is preeminently spiritual. An obsession with secular knowledge rather than spiritual understanding will make its pages difficult to unlock”. – James Faust

Mormon Decisions 10Seeking the Spirit, p 88; “In our day three fundamental truths are essential to a valid testimony: first, that Jesus is the Christ; second, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God; and third, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true and living church on the face of the whole earth. All valid testimony must embrace the spiritual witness that Jesus is the Christ, for “there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God.” (2 Nephi 31:21.)”. – Joseph Fielding McConkie

Mormon Decisions 10Times and Seasons, Vol. 3, No. 47, April 1, 1842, pg 742-743; “The witch of Endor is no less singular a personage; clothed with a powerful agency she raised the prophet Samuel from his grave, and he appeared before the astonished king and revealed unto him his future destiny. Who is to tell whether this woman is of God, and a righteous woman? or whether the power she possessed was of the devil, and her a witch as represented by the bible?  it is easy for us to say now; but if we had lived in her day, which of us could have unravelled [unraveled] the mystery?

Mormon Decisions 10Noah and the Flood, pgs 1-2; “Few men in any age were as great as Noah. In many respects he was like Adam, the first man. Both had served as ministering angels in the presence of God even after their mortal experience. Adam was Michael, the archangel, but Noah was Gabriel, one of those nearest to God. Of all the hosts of heaven, he was chosen to open the Christian era by announcing to Mary that she would become the mother of the Savior, Jesus Christ. He even designated the name by which the Redeemer should be known here on earth, saying He would be the Son of God….” – Mark E. Petersen, Apostle

salt lake mormon temple 2The Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, Matthew – Revelation 2:113; “Who or what is God? Is he the incomprehensible, uncreated, immaterial nothingness described in the creeds of Christendom. A three-in-one nothingness, a spirit essence filling immensity, an incorporeal, uncreated being incapable of definition or mortal comprehension, an unknown God who does not appear to men?” – Bruce McConkie

Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, Oct. 2003, pg 92; “The Three Witnesses never denied their testimony of the Book of Mormon. They could not because they knew it was true. They made sacrifices and faced difficulties beyond what most people ever know. Oliver Cowdery gave the same testimony about the divine origin of the Book of Mormon as he lay dying. But in the times of trial, they wavered in their faith that Joseph was still God’s prophet and that the only way to come unto the Savior was through His restored Church. That they continued to affirm what they saw and heard in that marvelous experience, during long periods of estrangement from the Church and from Joseph, makes their testimony more powerful.” – Apostle Henry B. Eyring
