Brigham Young, 2nd President of the Church, 1847–1877
What did Oliver Cowdery
(one of the Three Witnesses to the Book of Mormon) say? . .
. . A gentleman walked into his law office and said to him,
"Mr. Cowdery, what do you think of the Book of Mormon now?
Do you believe that it is true?" He replied, "No, sir, I do
not!" "Well," said the gentleman, "I thought as much; for I
concluded that you had seen the folly of your ways and had
resolved to renounce what you once declared to be true."
"Sir, you mistake me; I do not believe that the Book of
Mormon is true; I am past belief on that point, for I know
that it is true, as well as I know that you now sit before me."
Ezra Taft Benson, 13th President of the Church, 1985–1994
page of both the Doctrine and Covenants and the Book of
Mormon teaches about the Master—His great love for
His children and His atoning sacrifice—and
teaches us how to live so that we can return to Him
and our Heavenly Father.
Wilford Woodruff, 4th President of the Church, 1889–1898
I bear my testimony to
these things. The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the book of
Doctrine and Covenants contain the words of eternal life
unto this generation, and they will rise in judgment against
those who reject them.
