General Conference, ‘Strange Creeds of Christendom,’ October 1972; “At the time that Joseph Smith had that marvelous vision and saw that glorified Christ, he saw the same Jesus that came out of the tomb. …

There is not time to go into a lot of detail, but their [Christian] catechism says that their god has “no body; he has no parts; he has no passions.” That means that he has no eyes; he cannot see. He has no ears; he cannot hear your prayers. He has no voice; he cannot speak a word to the prophets. Some of them even say “he sits on the top of a topless throne.” How absurd! To me it seems that their description of the god that they believe in is about the best description of nothing that can be written.

…when he [Moses] went to lead the children of Israel into the promised land, he told them … ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.” (Deut. 4:28.)

That is exactly the kind of a god the whole Christian world was worshiping when Joseph Smith had that glorious vision…” – LeGrand Richards

1 Thessalonians 5:21 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”

LeGrand RichardsEnsign, ‘The Things of God and Man,’ November 1977, p, 21; “You remember how the whole world believed that the thief upon the cross went to heaven with the Savior because He said: “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43.) Now the men of this world, understanding things according to man’s wisdom, thought he went to heaven. But according to divine truth, he went only to paradise where the Savior arranged for the gospel to be preached to him to prepare him so that he would be worthy to stand with the sanctified and the redeemed of his people.” – LeGrand Richards

Mormon Decisions 10Interview by Wesley P. Walters and Chris Vlachos, August 16, 1978, Church Office Building; “The Lord has never indicatedLeGrand Richards that black skin came because of being less faithful. Now, the [American] Indian; we know why he has changed, don’t we? The Book of Mormon tells us that: and he has a dark skin, but he has promise there that through faithfulness, that they all again become a white and delightsome people.” – Apostle LeGrand Richards

Mormon Decisions 10Marvelous Word and a Wonder, p 67; “…(Isaiah 29:1-4.) Isaiah saw the downfall of Ariel, or Jerusalem, at a time far in the future, “add ye year to year.” Then he seems to have been carried away in vision to witness a similar destruction of the cities of Joseph, “and it shall be unto me as Ariel.” He describes how they would be besieged and forts would be raised against them. They would be brought down and would speak out of the ground. Their speech would be “low out of the dust”; their voice would be as one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground; and their speech would whisper out of the dust. Now, obviously, the only way a dead people could speak “out of the ground” or “low out of the dust” would be by the written word, and this the people did through the Book of Mormon. Truly it has a familiar spirit, for it contains the words of the prophets of the God of Israel.” – LeGrand Richards
