Warning from Elder James E. Talmage – 1916 General Conference

“There is a tendency among men to explain away what they don’t wish to understand in literal simplicity, and we as Latter-day Saints are not entirely free from the taint of that tendency.  Some people explain that prediction (about the Ten Tribes) is to be explained away in this way: ‘ A gathering is in progress, and has been in …

Fix Your Eyes on the Lord!

“Do it once. Do it daily. Do it ten thousand times ten thousand times.
