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.

„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.

„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.

„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.

„A man is saved no faster than he gets knowledge.“

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

History of the Church, 4:588 (10 April 1842)
1840s

„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

„Truth is "Mormonism." God is the author of it.“

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

History of the Church, 3:297 (20 March 1839)
1830s

„Element had an existence from the time he [God] had. The pure principles of element are principles which can never be destroyed; they may be organized and re-organized, but not destroyed. They had no beginning, and can have no end.... [T]he mind of man — the immortal spirit. Where did it come from? All learned men and doctors of divinity say that God created it in the beginning; but it is not so: the very idea lessens man in my estimation. I do not believe the doctrine; I know better. Hear it, all ye ends of the world; for God has told me so... We say that God himself is a self-existent being. Who told you so? It is correct enough; but how did it get into your heads? Who told you that man did not exist in like manner upon the same principles? Man does exist upon the same principles. God made a tabernacle and put a spirit into it, and it became a living soul.... The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is [co-eternal] with God himself. I know that my testimony is true... Is it logical to say that the intelligence of spirits is immortal, and yet that it had a beginning? The intelligence of spirits had no beginning, neither will it have an end. That is good logic. That which has a beginning may have an end. There never was a time when there were not spirits; for they are [co-eternal] with our Father in heaven.... I take my ring from my finger and liken it unto the mind of man—the immortal part, because it has no beginning. Suppose you cut it in two; then it has a beginning and an end; but join it again, and it continues one eternal round. So with the spirit of man. As the Lord liveth, if it had a beginning, it will have an end. All the fools and learned and wise men from the beginning of creation, who say that the spirit of man had a beginning, prove that it must have an end; and if that doctrine is true, then the doctrine of annihilation would be true. But if I am right, I might with boldness proclaim from the house-tops that God never had the power to create the spirit of man at all. God himself could not create himself.“
