Lite coola citat från högt uppsatta mormoner (profeter och apostlar). Njut!

From: the Prophet Spencer W. Kimball

Topic:  Man is a god in embryo

The Prophet Spencer W. Kimball said in his book, Miracle of Forgiveness, pg. ix; “The scriptures point clearly to the high purpose of man's existence… through the modern Prophet Joseph Smith…having learned the drama and purpose of it all…Through him God has abundantly confirmed that man is the supreme creation…that man is the offspring of God; that for man, and man alone, was the earth created… and that, having within him the seeds of godhood and thus being a god in embryo, man has unlimited potential for progress and attainment.”
(Någon var visst lite hög på sin egna kuk när den kom på detta.)

From: the Prophet Brigham Young

Topic:  Blood atonement 
Brigham Young said this in Journal of Discourses 3:247; “You say, "That man ought to die for transgressing the law of God." Let me suppose a case. Suppose you found your brother in bed with your wife, an put a javelin through both of them, you would be justified, and they would atone for their sins, and be received into the kingdom of God. I would at once do so in such a case; and under such circumstances, I have no wife whom I love so well that I would not put a javelin through her heart, and I would do it with clean hands.

From: The Doctrines of Salvation

Topic:  Church Stands or Falls with Joseph Smith

Doctrines of Salvation, 1:188 it says; “Mormonism, as it is called, must stand or fall on the story of Joseph Smith. He was either a prophet of God, divinely called, properly appointed and commissioned, or he was one of the biggest frauds this world has ever seen. There is no middle ground.

From: the Prophet Joseph Fielding Smith

Topic:  Motherhood Brings Salvation

Motherhood lies at the foundation of happiness in the home…God has laid upon men and women very sacred obligations with respect to motherhood… In I Timothy 2:13-15, we are told that "Adam was first formed, then Eve…Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety." Can she be saved without child-bearing? She indeed takes an awful risk if she wilfully disregards what is a pronounced requirement of God…”
Gospel Doctrine: Selections from the Sermons and Writings of Joseph F. Smith, pg. 288.

 David O. McKay
“Although, I do not care much for a negro, still I have a warm spot in my heart for those beautiful singers.”

Brigham Young
“Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man mixes who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.”

Dallin Oaks, LDS apostle

 "Some things that are true are not very useful."
Boyd K. Packer

"The merciful companion to truth is silence. Some truths are best left unsaid."
Apostle Russel M. Nelson

“I remember years ago when I was a bishop I had President Heber J. Grant talk to our ward. After the meeting I drove him home … Standing by me, he put his arm over my shoulder and said: ‘My boy, you always keep your eye on the President of the Church and if he ever tells you to do anything, and it is wrong, and you do it, the Lord will bless you for it.’ Then with a twinkle in his eye, he said, ‘But you don’t need to worry. The Lord will never let his mouthpiece lead the people astray.’ ” (Conference Report, October 1960, p. 78.)
