Joseph Smith

Datum narození: 23. prosinec 1805
Datum úmrtí: 27. červen 1844

Joseph Smith ml. byl americký náboženský vůdce a zakladatel mormonismu. Smith stál u zrodu největšího exodu v USA, byl praktikovatelem polygamie, v 30. letech 19. století založil banku a ke konci svého života kandidoval na prezidenta USA. Roku 1844 byl zavražděn ve státě Illinois. Někteří mormoni jej dodnes považují za proroka, podobného těm z biblických časů.

„That which is wrong under one circumstance, may be, and often is, right under another.“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr., kniha Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 256 (11 April 1842)
1840s
Kontext: That which is wrong under one circumstance, may be, and often is, right under another. God said, 'Thou shalt not kill'; at another time He said, 'Thou shalt utterly destroy.' This is the principle on which the government of heaven is conducted— by revelation adapted to the circumstances in which the children of the kingdom are placed. Whatever God requires is right, no matter what it is, although we may not see the reason thereof till long after the events transpire.

„Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it. No man is a minister of Jesus Christ without being a Prophet.“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr., kniha Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 160 (2 July 1839)
1830s
Kontext: Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it. No man is a minister of Jesus Christ without being a Prophet. No man can be a minister of Jesus Christ except he has the testimony of Jesus; and this is the spirit of prophecy.

„You have to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr., kniha History of the Church

History of the Church, 6:306 (7 April 1844)
1840s, King Follett discourse (1844)
Kontext: You have to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one: from grace to grace FROM EXALTATION TO EXALTATION until you ATTAIN THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD.

„You don't know me; you never knew my heart. No man knows my history.“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr.

History of the Church 6:317 (7 April 1844)
1840s, King Follett discourse (1844)
Kontext: You don't know me; you never knew my heart. No man knows my history. I cannot tell it: I shall never undertake it. I don't blame any one for not believing my history. If I had not experienced what I have, I could not have believed it myself.... When I am called by the trump of the archangel and weighed in the balance, you will all know me then.

„I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr., kniha History of the Church

History of the Church, 4:461 (28 November 1841)
1840s
Kontext: I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.

„Deep water is what I am wont to swim in.“

—  Joseph Smith, Jr., kniha Doctrine and Covenants

Doctrine and Covenants, 127:2 (1 September 1842)
1840s
