“Wise gospel students do not build their philosophies of life on the quotations of individuals, even though those quotations come from Presidents of the Church.”
Bruce R. McConkie, Letter to Mr. Eugene England (Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 19 February 1981), 7.
“[A]lways keep your eye on the President of the Church, and if he ever tells you to do anything, and it is wrong, and you do it, the Lord will bless you for it … But you don’t need to worry. The Lord will never let his mouthpiece lead the people astray.”
Heber J. Grant via Marion G. Romney, General Conference Reports – October 1960 (Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 8 October 1960), 78.
