Journal of Discourses 6:34 “… I do not consider God is so anxious that we should be bloodthirsty men,,, … God designs we should be pure men, holding the oracles of God in holy and pure vessels; but when it is necessary that blood should be shed, we should be as ready to do that as to eat an apple.

Our look at this family tree had to be severely tamed – there are so many members of this clan who are notable figures in Mormonism, it’d be impossible to list all of them. For the sake of time and space, we’ve listed just a handful of who’s who!

As you might imagine, they’ve been instrumental in what makes the LDS Church what it is today. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 4:81 “I do not consider that one of my wives, or one of my children, has a right to partake of these emblems, until they make a full and proper restitution to me, if they have offended me. Why is this? Because I am their head, I am their governor, their dictator, their revelator, their prophet, and their priest, and if they rebel against me they at once raise a mutiny in my family.” – Heber C. Kimball, Salt Lake City, December 9, 1856 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 5:25-26; “I wonder if someone won’t go away and say that brother [Heber C.] Kimball and the authorities were misinformed. I can tell you they are not…I ask this congregation, and I adjure you in the name of the Lord to speak, if ever you heard brother Brigham, brother Kimball, brother Jedediah, or brother Wells say anything that was not strictly true. I answer, you never did.” Heber C. Kimball interrupts at this point: “If it were so, a man might be a Prophet one minute and a devil another.” – Patriarch John Young, Great Salt Lake City, July 12, 1857

salt lake mormon temple 2Journal of Discourses 2:106; “Jesus says, “Except ye are one, ye are not mine.” And yet the Christian world take a course to justify themselves in division, in strife, in animosity, in quarreling, in envy, in jealousy, in war and bloodshed. And yet they say they are one: I say THEY LIE. A man that says it, lies to me, and he lies to God. I say this to all the world, and to those who are passing through the city as emigrants; if you profess to be disciples of Christ, and have hatred to us in your hearts, I say you lie; in the name of the Lord God Almighty I say it. Do you not think He will sustain me in it? Yes, and all His faithful followers will too; and those who desire to be the disciples of Christ and to be one, will gather together.” – Heber C. Kimball, Salt Lake City, August 13, 1853
