Aaronic Priesthood restorexd by John the BaptistToday we’re looking at the way Mormonism was originally designed to operate. How did it come about? Under what, or whose authority does it operate?

salt lake mormon temple 2Mormon Doctrine, pg 410; “President Joseph F. Smith said: “What is a key?’ It is the right or privilege which belongs to and comes with the priesthood to have communication with God. Is not that a key? Most decidedly. We may not enjoy the blessings, or key, very much, but the key is in the priesthood. It is the right to enjoy the blessing of communication with the heavens, and the privilege and authority to administer in the ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ…You who hold the priesthood have the key or the authority, the right, the power or privilege to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ…” (Gospel Doctrine, 5th ed., p. 142.)”
