Baptism For The Dead [from The Saint's Advocate vol. 3], 1880 (PDF) by W. W. Blair Article discusses baptism for the dead. "It is not commonly known that President Young taught and administered baptism for the dead in a very different way than Joseph did, This he admits, in part, while at Nauvoo, after Joseph's death, as may be seen by consulting his sermons in the Times and Seasons. And it is not commonly known to Utah Saints that Joseph taught that baptism for the dead could be done properly, only by revelation; that is, that no living person should be baptized for a dead one unless there was a divine revelation through 'the man of God;' (to say that the dead one desired, and was prepared for, such proxy baptism; but such is the fact. Faith and repentance, must precede baptism; and how can it be known that any dead person has the requisite faith and repentance except it is revealed through legitimate channel, 'the man of God?'"
Baptism - The Door To The Kingdom [Hear Ye Him #11 - Audio Sermon], 1953 (mp3) by Evan A. Fry 15 minute sermon by Evan A. Fry on Baptism. "About no other ordinance or doctrine of the Christian church is there so much disagreement, so much argument, or so much scoffing indifference, as there is about the ordinance of baptism...All Christians are agreed on one thing; that man is powerless to save himself, and that salvation is to be had only in and through the atonement of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Man cannot save himself. He is helpless, completely dependent on Christ for his salvation. Therefore he is in no position to dictate the terms on which he will be saved. Christ, the only person who can save him, dictates the terms. To try to change them to suit the individual fancy, or simply to ignore them scornfully and still expect a full salvation, is rebellion. It is an expression of the very attitude which sinful man must repent of and discard if he expects the atonement of Christ to be effective for him."
Bearers Of Christ's Authority [Hear Ye Him #25 - Audio Sermon], 1953 (mp3) by Evan A. Fry 16 minute audio sermon. Discusses who has authority to represent God. "I have not been able to discover a single case in the New Testament where the minister for Christ simply felt his personal call and went to work." And, "Jesus sought the will of his Father, and delegated that authority only as God revealed his will to him after a night of prayer. Notice again that it was not the men who decided on the basis of an inner call that they were to be the twelve. Jesus said, 'Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you' (John 15:16)."
Be Not Carried About With Divers Doctrines [from Zion's Ensign vol. 30], 1919 (PDF) by Frederick A. Smith see also Zion's Ensign 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."

The Book Of Mormon As Literature [from The Saints' Herald vol. 90], 1943 (PDF)** by Evan V. Shute see also The Saints' Herald 4 pages. Article originally published in The Saints' Herald in 1943. Brother Shute states, "What does the Book of Mormon claim to be? It is an abridgment many times repeated, a synopsis of a synopsis. It deals with the broad current of ancient American history rather than with its details. What historical narrative it contains is interlarded with sermons, admonitions, and prophecies." **This electronic publication has been created with the express approval of the original copyright holder, The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints (Community Of Christ)
The Burden Of Sin [Audio Sermon], n.d. (mp3) by Arthur Oakman 55 minute sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman of the RLDS Church. He states, "I think it is foolish of us to close our eyes to our adversary, and I think if we are to combat sin we must study its manifestations, recognize it for what it is. And we cannot do this in our own strength either, because it's in the very nature of sin to deceive the sinner."
