Re: The rise, revelation, and symbols of the Nauvoo Temple

Satan and the occult strive to desecrate holy symbols. Seems I have heard some examples of this before. I have been told that Satan even mocks the Lord's Priesthoods, claiming that he has his own.

Re: Back when church leaders actually had some guts, Joseph Fielding Smith quote.

Unfortunately it isn't just the lefties in the church unless we include the Q15 in that group. Sadly, it is coming from the highest leaders in the church themselves.

First, how about starting out with Heber C. Kimball. He prophesied that the Saints’ stay in Nauvoo would be short-lived, which caused Sidney Rigdon, who knew of Heber’s prophetic gifts, to grieve. As a few church leaders first looked upon the area that would become Nauvoo, he said "It's a very ...
