Confliction about Intellectualism: ‘Think for yourself’ or ‘Do what we say?’… Do what we say:

“Any Latter-day Saint who denounces or opposes whether actively or otherwise, any plan or doctrine advocated by the prophets, seers, revelators of the church, is cultivating the spirit of apostasy. One cannot speak evil of the lord’s anointed…and retain the Holy Spirit in his heart. This sort of game is Satan’s favorite pastime, and he has practiced it to believing souls since Adam. He (Satan) wins a great victory when he can get members of the church to speak against their leaders and to do their own thinking.”
