Discourse 1872-10-07
ELDER WILFORD WOODRUFF was the next speaker. He alluded to the departure from the true order of the gospel by professing Christians. It was almost impossible for them to believe that continued revelation from the Al- mighty was necessary. The faith of the Latter-day Saints, however, was that it is God's right to rule and dictate by revelation. The law of tithing was given by revelation, and no Saint could neglect to comply with it and retain the spirit of the gospel. It was the duty of all to assist in building temples in which to attend to ordinance per- taining to the living and the dead. None of the requirements of the gospel would fall to the ground, for all must be fulfilled. The speaker exhorted the people to draw near to the Lord, that he might draw near to them, and that they might be filled with the light of truth. He also bore testimony to the greatness and the divine nature of the latter-day work.
