Simply Sunday

If you do not accuse each other, God will not accuse you.
If you have no accuser you will enter heaven.
What many people call sin is not sin;
I do many things to break down superstition,
and I will break it down.
~ Joseph Smith, Jr.

(There is no Gay Gospel Doctrine Class Lesson today, to allow for fall stake conference schedules.
Instead, I am featuring quotes by Joseph Smith.)

“If I revealed all that has been made known to me,
scarcely a man on this stand would stay with me."
"Brethren, if I were to tell you all I know of the kingdom of God,
I do know that you would rise up and kill me.”
~ Joseph Smith, Jr.

“One of the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism
is to receive truth, let it come from whence it may.”
~ Joseph Smith, Jr.

"Our heavenly Father is more liberal in His views,
and boundless in His mercies and blessings,
than we are ready to believe or receive ....”

~ Joseph Smith, Jr.


  1. Thank you for two wonderful "Simply" posts. You inspired me, and I copied your idea, to do somrpething similar on my blog.

    Keep up the superb posts. You are very gifted!

  2. thank you! I hope that you're well. I love Israel's interpretation of "somewhere over the rainbow" ... definitely THE song for my life:), also love the autumn painting, the table overlooking hills, the village in .... France? and of course ... fields of lavender:)

    sending you my best thoughts for a simply fabulous week!

  3. Thank you, Heather and Becoming, for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the posts!

  4. Oh, IP, two Simply's in two days. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    The pictures are beautiful. The music is moving. The words of the Prophet couldn't have been more inspiring...and comforting.

    (And, yes, your subtext made me smile...)
