50 page pamphlet. Brother Scott states, "So I say again the evidences direct and indirect, that cluster around the restoration of the gospel is connected with the restoration of the house of Israel, redeeming them from their long bondage state and inaugurating them into the commonwealth that God purposes to inaugurate them in to and make them the chief of all the kingdoms of the world, and this all is involved in the great work in which you and I are engaged…I repeat, in conclusion, that it seems to me that the only safety that is unavoidable to this crisis, is our adoption in to the family of Abraham by the restoration of the gospel, and ultimately enjoy the blessings of God when that people shall have passed their troubles, and when Christ reigns from the rivers to the ends of the earth, when he whispers peace to the captives and opens the prison doors to them that are bound and lets the captives go free."

What historical narrative it contains is interlarded with sermons, admonitions, and prophecies."

Concerning Discussions In The Herald [from The Saints' Herald vol. 56], 1909 Concerning Discussions In The "Herald" [from The Saints' Herald vol. 56], 1909 (PDF)
see also The Saints' Herald
Excellent editorial written by Elbert A. Smith about why various points of view about issues should be shared in The Saints' Herald. He states, "A few thoughts now regarding discussion in general. There seem to be two extreme views held in the church regarding the appearance of discussions in the HERALD; and between the two the editors are in a position to acquire large quantities of valuable experience. One would have our readers given nothing but predigested foods, carefully selected by the editors,-sincere malted milk of the word, shredded whole wheat biscuits of life,-and fear that if the readers get any nuts to crack they will break all their teeth. The other would give them mince pie, pickles, sauerkraut, and nails. In our opinion the happy medium will be found in a mixed diet somewhere between these extremes; we do not care for predigested foods and we do not like pickles." And, "Some questions are timely and may be discussed with profit, providing the discussion is dispassionate. Other questions are not timely and can not be discussed profitably. Some have been agitated at length and may well rest. In the present case section 106 is important and will play an important part in the redemption of Zion. It has been discussed in certain quarters for a long time and we felt that the Saints in general might as well know what there was in the opposition. If the section will not stand investigation it ought to be investigated. If it will stand, it will emerge from the discussion stronger than before, and the fog will clear away. Publicity usually strengthens truth. Some have expressed a fear that the discussion would injure financial interests. In the Lamoni Stake, where perhaps the interest is keenest, the tithing receipts since it has been in progress are the best in years." And, "To those who are said to be about to withhold their means because of conflicting opinions on the law that have been published, if such exist, permit us to address a little advice that none will be likely to challenge: Don't do it! Few writers in these columns have ever attacked the institution of tithing itself. The difference is on the meaning of the word tithe, its application, and its relation to consecration of surplus, or on the law of surplus itself. The financial law is a divine law. It is your duty to understand and obey the law. If you withhold your means because you discover that two or more other brethren differ in opinion, you are doing what some do who refuse to be baptized because they discover that others differ concerning the method of baptism. They hesitate, give up the problem, hide behind a futile and foolish excuse, and are lost."

Sermon Of Presiding Patriarch Frederick A. Smith, delivered on May 25, 1919. He states, "Now, if you do not have the Spirit, what kind of spirit have you? If the speaker does not have the Spirit of God, then, my friends, what does that preaching mean to you? Have you ever thought about it? It is an important thing that you ought to think about. If he does not have the Spirit of God, well, you need not be very much afraid of him. If it is the Spirit of God, then you should pay heed to it: very carefully, too. In the thought I have before you to-night, that we be not carried about by every wind of doctrine, we want to carefully canvass the situation; and never, I presume, in the history of the world, has there been a time when there were as many, what we could call strange doctrines instituted and being promulgated in the world, as at the present time. We have had lots of them in the past, it is true, but never so many at any one time. I cannot help but think of the statement made by the Master of men when he was here upon earth, in which he made the declaration that the time would come that everything that could be shaken would be shaken, and we are pretty nearly in that period."

President Frederick M. Smith's Views On Revelation [from Zion's Ensign vol. 31], 1920 President Frederick M. Smith's Views On Revelation [from Zion's Ensign vol. 31], 1920 (PDF)
Remarks on revelation made by President Frederick M. Smith on October 6, 1918. He states, "At a certain time of my life it became necessary for me, especially since I was asked to accept a position that is unique among all the organizations of the world, to give considerable thought to this question of how God shall reveal himself to his people. There was a disposition at one time on my part to limit God as to how he should reveal his will. But I passed this point and have been able to say, If thou, oh God, art desirous of revealing thy will to us, or to me, be it far from me to say how. And so we still stand for one of the fundamental ideals of the church, and that is not only belief in God, but a sure and secure belief that God will reveal his will to us, and speak to us in his own language and in his own way."

26 pages. Tract by I. M. Smith. He states, "the principle it teaches is applicable to every revelation that God has ever given to man, whether the revelation be long or short, whether it contains ten words or ten thousand words. Man has no right to add to nor take from anything that God has given-has no right to do so now, never did have the right to do so, and never will have. You will remember the text says: 'If any man shall add to,' or 'take from,' etc., nothing said about what God proposes to do in the premises; there is nothing said about whether he will give more revelations, or whether he will withhold them. Mind you, he places this restriction upon man, and leaves himself free to do as seemeth him good."

40 pages. Discusses salvation. "I know it is a common idea, or at least it is one that is frequently taught, that there is nothing for man to do, so far as the salvation of his soul is concerned, only to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ…but while we believe that faith is absolutely necessary, and that it is impossible to please God without it, we also believe that there are certain works required on the part of men, which are just as essential, just as necessary to his salvation, as it is that he believe. Now, if you take the position that men are saved by faith alone, then it seems to me that you would have to admit that Satan himself will be saved, because the Apostle James has said: 'Thou believes that there is one God; thou doest well; the devils also believe, and tremble' So you see if you have nothing only faith to recommend you to God, you have the same that they have."

32 pages. Tract by I. M. Smith. He states, "On the day of Pentecost there was a miraculous display of God's power, causing unlearned Galileans to speak in languages they had never learned, but the only effect it seems to have had upon the multitude of unbelievers, was to cause them to marvel, some even going so far as to accuse them of being drunken. But while they stood in this bewildered, confused state of mind, Peter stood up and preached to them the gospel of Christ, the word of truth, and "when they heard these things they were pricked in their hearts," (Acts 2: 3 7), and began to inquire what they should do. Hence, you see that while a miraculous display of power may beget any amount of wonder and astonishment, it takes the word of truth to beget a gospel faith in the heart of man."

He makes a statement regarding Joseph Smith, Jr (his father) seeing an angel in the grove during the first vision experience, "I may be pardoned this morning if my discourse be somewhat discursive, and I review, as rapidly as I may, some of the things which have been done in the spiritual realm of controversy since this church was organized April 6, 1830. In the first place the statement made by the angel to him who was chosen as the earthly instrument by which the church should be represented abroad, and should find its organization, was that the declarations of belief, or the creeds, were an abomination in God's sight."

Sermon on polygamy given on November 7, 1920 at the RLDS Stone Church, Independence, Missouri, USA. Walter Smith states, "I have spoken to a great many people and I have talked with those who were living at Nauvoo, not in great numbers, because they were thinning out by the time I came along; but I have talked to quite a considerable number, all of whom testify personally to knowing that Joseph Smith was not responsible for this doctrine. Think of the ridiculous situation with which we are confronted. We meet people who testify that they were Joseph Smith's wives, but when we inquire deeply into the matter we find that the marriage ceremony takes place in Salt Lake City and that Brigham Young or some other person stood proxy for Joseph Smith. There is no way in the world to save a man's reputation from such calumny. It is really quite, ridiculous." 6 pages in length.
