Now I have email questions about priesthood. Before setting this aside for more important things, let me add only: Priesthood has never been confined to one individual. Remember that from Adam to Enoch there were seven living generations with many unnamed priests. Every righteous son of the family of Adam held the priesthood. He led

A Clarifying Question

A Clarifying Question

I got this email asking for clarifications: Can you clarify these statements? Here Denver seems to be saying we can obtain salvation now. “You’re hedging up the way of your own salvation, and of the salvation of others when you say no one has the privilege in our day yet, to lay hold on salvation.

I received an email that made this observation and suggestion: _________________________________________ Your blog is the only site that nearly all who are taking part in this resurgent restoration have in common.

Recorder

I do not think I have any right to determine or appoint a recorder. There have been three different people who have asked me about being the central recorder. I have told all of them the same thing. It would be fine for them to proceed. I think they may all have some of the
