November 20 – Hebrews 11:36-38; “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.”
Acts 17:11; “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
Today’s post is a result of a couple of interesting quotes stemming from a PowerPoint Presentation I found in a Google Web-cache. You can read it online, or watch a Video of Mr. Neal Maxwell’s presentation which contains most of what’s included in the PPT, The BYU Youtube version is called, ‘A Wonderful Flood of Light’, but fair warning: it’s 45 minutes long!
OR, if those two formats don’t strike your fancy, you can purchase the book from Amazon. We found the book is actually a compilation of Joseph Smith quotes Mr. Maxwell really liked, and the subsequent extolling of Smith, none of which had anything to do with God’s word.

Journal of Discourses 6:6; “We say that God himself is a self-existent being. Who told you so? It is correct enough; but how did it get into your heads? Who told you that man did not exist in like manner upon the same principle? Man does exist upon the same principles. God made a tabernacle and put a spirit into it, and it became a living soul. [Referred to the old Bible.] How does it read in the Hebrew? It does not say in the Hebrew that God created the spirit of man. It says, “God made man out of the earth, and put into him Adam’s spirit, and so became a living body.
The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is coequal with God himself. I know that my testimony is true…” – Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, April 6, 1844
