1 Corinthians 1:18-20 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Journal of Discourses 21:39 “Salvation, in its largest aspect, consists in the proportion of truth received; men and women only are saved in proportion to the truth which they appropriate. An ignorant man will only obtain the salvation which belongs to the ignorant.” – Henry W. Naisbitt, Salt Lake City, November 23, 1879 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 20:30 “What we do not learn relative to the salvation of our souls which are our bodies and spirits, in this probation we will have to learn in the eternity which lies before us, for we cannot be saved without knowledge. “But what if we never get knowledge?” Then we never will be saved.” – Joseph F.

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 160; “Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it. No man is a minister of Jesus Christ without being a Prophet. No man can be a minister of Jesus Christ except he has the testimony of Jesus; and this is the spirit of prophecy. Whenever salvation has been administered, it has been by testimony. Men of the present time testify of heaven and hell, and have never seen either; and I will say that no man knows these things without this.” (more…)

History of the Church 5:387; “It is not wisdom that we should have all knowledge at once presented before us; but that we should have a little at a time; then we can comprehend it. … Salvation is nothing more nor less than to triumph over all our enemies and put them under our feet. And when we have power to put all enemies under our feet in this world, and a knowledge to triumph over all evil spirits in the world to come, then we are saved…” Joseph Smith, May 14, 1843 (more…)

New Era, ‘Testify of the Restoration,’ April 2017; “Yes, our message is most certainly the Atonement of Jesus Christ and all that it stands for, but … Take away Joseph Smith and the First Vision, take away the events which followed, take away a direct restoration from heaven, and what do we have? We don’t have much…

We cannot reject Joseph Smith, nor forget him, nor omit him, nor try to tell our message without him without also rejecting the message and dismissing the powers that he brought. He stands at the head of the greatest of all gospel dispensations… I testify that many plain and precious truths of the gospel and all of the priesthood keys of that gospel had been lost from the earth and had to be restored. … We have to testify of such a restoration, or we have no testimony at all!” – Jeffrey Holland

Journal of Discourses 15:370-371; “He sends forth his servants with the truth, and he makes this promise—he made it through Joseph Smith—If they will believe in Jesus Christ, repent of their sins, be baptized for the remission thereof by one having authority, they shall receive the Holy Ghost and a testimony from Him as to the character of the work in which they have engaged.” – George Quayle Cannon, Salt Lake City, March 23, 1873 [emp. mine]
