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."

by Henry A. Stebbins
see also The Gospel Banner
38 pages. Discusses claims about ancient civilizations in America and their relation to the Book of Mormon. Brother Stebbins states, "…the Book of Mormon is a history of God's dealings with a certain portion of the Hebrew race, an account of the wanderings and experiences of a colony which came to America before the Babylonish captivity. For the Lord had declared by Moses that he would yet scatter Israel 'from the one end of the earth even unto the other.' (Deut. 28: 64.)"

by S. W. L. Scott

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."

Save Yourselves [The Gospel Banner vol. 6 no. 3], 1899 (PDF) Save Yourselves [The Gospel Banner vol. 6 no. 3], 1899 (PDF)
by Isaac M. Smith
see also The Gospel Banner
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."

by George Derry
see also The Saints' Herald
Article on the ordination of Joseph Smith, Jr. and Oliver Cowdery by Peter, James and John to the Melchisedec Priesthood. "If language means anything, Joseph Smith was as much ordained and confirmed by the laying on of the hands of Peter, James, and John, to the Melchisedec priesthood as Joseph and Oliver were ordained to the Aaronic priesthood….God does not change his law concerning ordination nor his rule of conferring priesthood authority upon man."

Is Water Baptism Essential To Salvation?, [The Gospel Banner vol. 8 no. 1 extra A], 1901 (PDF) Is Water Baptism Essential To Salvation?, [The Gospel Banner vol. 8 no. 1 extra A], 1901 (PDF)
by Joseph Luff
see also The Gospel Banner
24 page tract on the necessity of water baptism for salvation. Brother Luff states, "To us, this question sounds about the same as would the inquiry, 'Is faith in God necessary?' We cannot understand why it should be asked by persons who have read the Bible carefully for themselves; but it is being asked, and that, too, by honest and intelligent persons. Hence we venture a very plain answer, and a few plain reasons for that answer. We shall use the Bible in so doing, believing that God's word will be taken in preference to ours. Our answer is, 'Yes, water baptism is essential to salvation.'"

48 pages. Sermon by President Joseph Smith III of the RLDS Church, delivered on September 2, 1900. 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."

38 page pamphlet. "That Christ's principal object in performing miracles was not for unbelievers is evident from the fact that he always required faith on the part of the recipient of the cure. Further, the fact that he was so secretive about his miracles in trying to keep it from being spread abroad in many instances, affords strong evidence that they were designed only for believers or for his disciples."

Kelley, Aggressive Defensive, etc.," and concluding with a pompous, 'I challenge you to read this Brochure.' The excuse offered for issuing this pamphlet, assigned, was because of a telegram being sent to the Senate Committee in the Smoot case, by some one of the Reorganized Church, in which it was alleged that the 'Prophet Joseph Smith did not introduce the revelations on polygamy or practice it;' with a reference to the president of the Reorganized Church and Wm. H. Kelley as having made 'Unmerited charges against the good people of Utah in general, and this Protestant in particular.'"

by J. W. Peterson

18 page tract published by the RLDS Church. J. W. Peterson states, "Because the faith of Christ has always been opposed by certain classes, the Latter-day Saints are not above their Master in having their cause misrepresented by both pulpit and press, and themselves frowned upon by those who are ignorant of their faith. Because of this misrepresentation, many persons who have heard or read only the reverse side, often ask themselves the question: 'Is it right to go and hear them?' It is right and honorable to hear any one claiming to have the truth, that one may know for himself whether or not the claim is true and not be dependent on biased rumor."

by William Lewis

Four page article on preaching and the use of notes. Brother Lewis states, "Preaching from notes is a custom very extensively practiced in the religious world. Some have their entire sermons written or in a printed form, which have been carefully prepared and revised from time to time. Almost invariably the minister, before presenting his sermon to the audience, asks the Lord to give him of his Spirit that he may present such thoughts as will be food for the assembly. In my judgment there is no consistency in asking the Lord to bring to his (the minister's) mind that which shall be food for the congregation, when he has before him all that he intends to present."

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)

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."
