Hosea Stout Utah’s Pioneer Statesman, p 234; “One of the great triumphs of Mormonism was the discovery that the Book of Mormon was indeed an authentic history of ancient North and South America. In a great speech delivered in the Tabernacle (January 2), Orson Pratt announced to the world that there was more evidence proving the authenticity of the Book of Mormon than there was for the Bible! The irony of this truth lay in the fact that non-Mormon scientists were making these discoveries!”
Conference Report, April 1941, p.49; “According to our teachings, Satan and an army of supporters were cast down to earth from the premortal spirit world. They are spirit brothers of ours, and are real persons having spirit bodies. As surely as we live they live also. They are trying to handicap and thwart the work of the Lord. Wherever the Saints are found there the devil is also. If Satan can overcome the Saints, he will have all the world subject to him. He is a deceiver, the father of lies, the source of evil, the enemy of all righteousness.” – Joseph F. Merrill
