Mormon Decisions 10Joseph Smith: The Choice Seer, Chapter 25; “Revelation, the Prophet taught, was to be immediate and personal. We have no right, he explained, to lay claim to promises made to another people in another time. As their curses are not our curses, so their promises are not our promises (see Ibid., p. 12). “Reading the experience of others, or the revelations given to them, can never give us a comprehensive view of our condition and true relation to God.

Could you gaze into heaven five minutes, you would know more than you would by reading all that ever was written on the subject.” (Ibid., p. 324; emphasis in original.)” – Joseph Fielding McConkie, Also see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 324
