“[T]he time came when Paganism was engrafted into Christianity, and at last Christianity was converted into Paganism rather than converting the Pagans. And subsequently the Priesthood was taken from among men, this authority was re-called into the heavens, and the world was left without the Priesthood – without the power of God – without the Church and Kingdom of God.”

Joseph F. Smith – 6 February 1881, Journal of Discourses – Volume 22 (Liverpool, England: Albert Carrington, 1882), 44.
