The Contributor, Vol. 14, No. 9, p.460 “…it is not possible for a man to obtain salvation and exaltation without marriage, holy and eternal.

There should be created a sentiment and a faith in the hearts of all young Latter-day Saints in this principle and early marriages, because life is short. If we run out the three score years and ten allotted to man it is only a brief span, and we ought to commence our married life at a proper age. All men and women, I understand, should be married at least before they are twenty- four years of age.” – Francis M. Lyman, June 4, 1893 Continue Reading »


August 17 – John 8:44; “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” Continue Reading »

Encyclopedia of Mormonism, p. 1538 “For Latter-day Saints, the phrase “voice from the dust” speaks of the coming-forth of the Book of Mormon (cf. 2 Ne. 25:18; 26:16), which was translated from metal plates buried in the ground for fourteen centuries. As early as Joseph Smith, LDS leaders have consistently indicated that this phrase applies to the Book of Mormon (PJS, p. 307; Hinckley, p. 10). This distinctive phrase and others like it usually appear in a context that speaks of the need for repentance and of an accompanying voice of warning that will “whisper out of the dust” (Isa. 29:4).” – Daniel H. Ludlow, 1992 Continue Reading »

Gospel Through the Ages, pp. 19-21 “Jesus Christ, the only perfect man who has lived on this earth, was perfect because He obeyed all the principles and ordinances of the Gospel… As a reward for the valiant work of the Son of Man, He shall eventually—when this earth is celestialized—become its God, King, and Ruler …and the God who will be directly responsible for the administration of those laws will be none other than the holy Man of Galilee.” – Milton Hunter, 1945 Continue Reading »

Ensign (CR), May 1977, p.21 “We know that all truth does emanate from God and is therefore unchangeable, consistent, and unified. Consequently, not all Christian churches with their dissimilar teachings can provide a fulness of truth. My intent is to assert with testimony and persuasion of scripture the reasons there can be only one Lord, one acceptable faith, one baptism, and one true church. Then if any of you are convinced you are mistaken in your present beliefs, you should have the courage to investigate and the faith to change and follow the true path Christ has outlined that assures one’s eternal happiness.” – Delbert L. Stapley Continue Reading »
