“If”, part 2, Calvary Love by Amy Carmichael; ‘…if the cup of spiritual flattery tastes sweet to me, then I know nothing of Calvary love…’ Thou Givest, They Gather

 History of the Church 6:299-300; “We are now the most noble people on the face of the globe, and we have no occasion to fear tadpoles.

We are designated by the All-seeing Eye to do good, not to stoop to anything low. We are apt to suffer prejudice to get into our hearts on hearing reports. … The reason why I feel so good is because I have a big soul. There are men with small bodies who have got souls like Enoch. We have. We have gathered our big souls from the ends of the earth. The Gospel picks the big souls out of all creation, and we will get the big souls out of all the nations, and we shall have the largest city in the world.

Why?

Why did Smith say such things about Catholics and Protestants, while mandating the same principles on his own followers? We’re taking a look at what they’ve said over the years to paint a clear picture of when calling Christians and Catholics ‘the whore of Babylon’ actually began.

June 1 – Mormon salvation means taking God’s place.
