70 years ago today - Jun 30, 1952

A First Presidency letter to stake presidents and ward bishops that "we must always be on our guard against false teachings which destroy faith and lead the Church members into forbidden paths." The letter also cautions, "Officers should not be misled by an innocent looking face and a smoothly pious tongue." In a restatement of this letter on the 22nd of Feb. 1972, a different First Presidency drops the latter phrase.
