Journal of Discourses 2:314; “The laws that the Lord has given are not fully perfect, because the people could not receive them in their perfect fulness; but they can receive a little here and a little there, a little today and a little tomorrow, a little more next week, and a little more in advance of that next year, if they make a wise improvement upon every little they receive; if they do not, they are left in the shade, and the light which the Lord reveals will appear darkness to them, and the kingdom of heaven will travel on and leave them groping.” —Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 8, 1855
Psalm 19:7; “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”
Mr. Young’s grave error about God’s word should stand as a healthy reminder of why it’s important to stay camped in God’s word. Eight months before this statement, Mr. Young boldly proclaimed he hadn’t read the Bible in ‘many years’ because he’s just too busy and didn’t understand the meaning or spirit of it. See False Prophecies of the Mormon Church.
Take heed beloved, if you believe this man’s teachings you certainly aren’t following the God of the Bible.
