Journal of Discourses 7:20 “These are my views, and the Lord knows that I believe in the principles of sanctification; and when I am guilty of seducing any man’s wife, or any woman in God’s world, I say sever my head from my body. These have ever been my feelings from the days of my youth. This is my character, and the character of President Brigham Young. It was the character of Joseph Smith and of Jesus Christ; and that is the character of the Apostles of Jesus, and that must be sustained by this people.” — Heber C. Kimball, Great Salt Lake City, July 16, 1854 (more…)

Thomas Woolsey Intro

November 3, 1805 – January 5, 1897

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 25:327-382; “Now let it be known throughout all Israel, as the word of the Lord to us for the present, through His servant who stands at the head, that a man who commits adultery, a man who has had his endowments, cannot be baptized again into the Church. Let it be known throughout all Israel, as the word of God through His servant, who stands at the head, that a man who has had his endowments and commitsCannon George Q whoredom, cannot now be received into the Church again. These must be cut off; because the law that was given in the early days of the Church concerning a man committing adultery once and being received back into the Church does not apply today. There has been a higher law since then, namely, the endowments, and men have taken upon themselves, and women also, sacred obligations in holy places. Therefore, hear it and understand it.” — George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, October 6-7, 1884

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses  3:265; “It has been strenuously urged by many, that this doctrine was introduced through lust, but that is a gross misrepresentation…

This revelation, which God gave to Joseph, was for the express purpose of providing a channel for the organization of tabernacles, for those spirits to occupy who have been reserved to come forth in the kingdom of God, and that they might not be obliged to take tabernacles out of the kingdom of God.” – Brigham Young, Provo, July 14, 1855

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 4:49-51; “I would ask how many covenant breakers there are in this city and in this kingdom. I believe that there are a great many and if they are covenant breakers we need a place designated, where we can shed their blood… And we have women here who like anything but the celestial law of God; and if they could break asunder the cable of the Church of Christ, there is scarcely a mother in Israel but would do it this day. And they talk it to their husbands, to their daughters, and to their neighbors, and say they have not seen a week’s happiness since they became acquainted with that law [plural marriage], or since their husbands took a second wife…” – Jedidiah Morgan Grant, Salt Lake City, September 21, 1856

Perrigrine Sessions

June 15, 1814 – June 3, 1893

Early Mormon PolygamistsThe addition of this entry to our series of Polygamy and Mormon Church Leaders reminded me of my own family in many ways.  One of  the main similarities was the oblivious mindset that’s employed for those living this ungodly lifestyle.

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The name of this week’s lesson was “I Will Betroth Thee unto Me in Righteousness” and it focuses on Hosea’s marriage to his adulterous wife Gomer to compare it with the idolatrous behavior of Israel.

The teacher is instructed to ask members on several occasions to explain what Israel was doing wrong and then compares all this with the way we reject Christ today.  Wow, if this isn’t rich I don’t know what is.
