Jeffrey R. Holland, PBS Interview with Helen Whitney, Mar 2006; “All I can say is, however well-intentioned the explanations were [regarding origins of priesthood ban], I think almost all of them were inadequate and/or wrong […] It would have been advantageous to say nothing, to say we just don’t know, and, [as] with many religious matters, whatever was being done was done on the basis of faith at that time […] We simply don’t know why that practice, that policy, that doctrine was in place.” — Jeffrey R. Holland
General Conference, ‘The Joy of Redeeming the Dead’, Oct 2012; “Do you young people want a sure way to eliminate the influence of the adversary in your life? Immerse yourself in searching for your ancestors, prepare their names for the sacred vicarious ordinances available in the temple, and then go to the temple to stand as proxy for them to receive the ordinances of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost. […] I can think of no greater protection from the influence of the adversary in your life.” — Richard G. Scott
Hebrews 2:14; “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil”.
1 John 3:8; “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
Ensign, ‘Joseph Among the Prophets,’ June 1994; “There is another sense in which Joseph Smith was known to the ancients: he was schooled and tutored by them during his own mortal ministry. Save Jesus Christ only, the world has never known a more competent scriptural authority than Joseph Smith. It is one thing to read a book of scripture and quite another to be personally instructed by its authors. Who among the world’s scholars and religious leaders can lay claim to having stood face to face with Adam, Enoch, Noah, Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, Peter, James, and John? Who can speak with authority about life in ancient America because of lessons learned from Nephi, Mormon, Moroni, and no doubt other ancient American Hebrews? (See Journal of Discourses, 13:47; 17:374; 21:94, 161–64; 23:362.) Many of Joseph’s heavenly visitors laid their hands on his head and conferred their priesthood keys and authorities (see D&C 128:20).” – Robert Millet
