September 20 – John 7:14-17; “Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?  Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.  If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” Continue Reading »

TodayinMormonHistory.com “– 175 years ago today – Sep 15, 1843 — William Clayton writes in his journal: “President Joseph told me he had lately had a new item of law revealed to him in relation to myself. He said the Lord had revealed to him that a man could only take 2 of a family except by express revelation and as I had said I intended to take Lydia he made this known for my benefit.

Times and Seasons, Vol. V. No. 15] CITY OF NAUVOO, ILL. AUG. 15,1844. [Whole No. 99, p. 618 “CITY OF NAUVOO, THURSDAY, AUG. 15, 1844. THE NEXT PRESIDENT…as our candidate for this high office, has been butchered in cold blood, for aught [ought] we know to the contrary, to prevent him from being elected, and the murderers running at large with impunity; and as we are not abolitionists and will not go against one half the interest of the nation-what shall we do as honest and consistent men? Shall we honor the “views of the powers and policy of the government,” as published by the now martyred Gen. Joseph Smith? We will.”” ~ JOHN TAYLOR, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR, August 1844.
