Another Review of PtHG

Another Review of PtHG

Another review of Passing the Heavenly Gift. Enjoy. [My wife noticed this and put it up yesterday. I’ve now skimmed the review. Wasn’t worth really reading.

The First Presidency are the primary organizational leadership in the hierarchy of the church. (D&C 107: 22.) They are the presidency of the church.
