[Wilford Woodruff]
G. Q. Cannon read the 9 ch of Heb & 10 ch 28, 29 verses on the Blood of Christ. John Taylor spok upon the Attonemet 46 minuts W Woodruff 9, G. Q. Cannon 21, & Presidet Young 30 Minuts. All spoke upon the Attonement to do away with the Herrisy which A Lyman had been preaching against the Atonemet.

President Young said There never was any world Created & Peopled Nor never would be but what would be redeemed by the sheding of the blood of the Savior of that world. If we are Ever Exhalted and Crowned in the presence of God we shall become Saviors of a world which we shall Create & People. ... Adam made this world and Suffered himself to take a body and subject himself to sin that Redemption & Exaltation might Come to man. ... It is an Eternal gospel and the same in all worlds and always will be to the Endless ages of Eternity. There never was a period but what worlds Exhisted & never will be, and they all have the same Gospel & Law of Salvation.

Amasa Lyman is rejecting the Blood of Christ. Has Cut himself off from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and he cannot be restored to it in this probation. He has had a chance to be a great Man in this Kingdom. He never was Joseph Smith's Councillor but was a Thirteenth Apostle for a long time.
