Mormon History, Jul 2, 1848

[Brigham Young Sermon] President Young made several remarks respecting our present position and prospects. He said in the name of Israel's God this people never would be down again if we would purge out the hypocrites and evil doers. He said that he would put truth to the line and righteousness to the plum line and he would annihilate evil doers. He said that he had little preaching to do, the people of these camps know their duty, he said that we all knew what was right therefore go and do it, when I get to the valley and get the saints together I will tell them things that they never thought of, he said he knew the law of God, there was laws where by all men could be saved except they had sinned against the Holy Ghost, there is a day coming when every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is the Christ to the glory of the Father, if there is anything impossible with God it is to count the kingdoms that will yet exist. Richard Ballantyne Journal. President B. Young bore testimony to the gospel and said that by keeping all the Commandments of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ which we have received we would be saved in the Celestial Kingdom of God and that their was laws and ordinances by which all could be saved except those who had shed innocent blood or sinned against the Holy Ghost'"And in relation to the Conception and birth of Jesus Christ Said that he was the son according to the flesh of the Eternal Father. And the natural heir to this world, and that to him all things should bow and acknowledge that he is God to the glory of God the Father. That the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was the Father of our Spirits but that according to the flesh we were begotten some other way. -- Clarion Creek, Nebraska [Heber C.
