145 years ago today - Mar 29, 1874 (Morning)

President Brigham Young arose and said if the people wanted the word of the Lord written, he could give it to them in this way. He had the feeling in his heart to avoid giving the will of God with a '"Thus saith the Lord.'" In this latter case, the curse of God would the more directly and speedily come upon those who would not obey. Where God gives His law, and it is not observed, the penalty must be paid. He concluded by saying when we are fully organized in the Order of Enoch, and partake of its spirit, we will bring everything we have on earth, and deed it over to our Father who is in Heaven. Be one, that you may indeed be the sons of God. -- St. George, Utah
