long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Only when...

Only when things are investigated is knowledge extended; 
only when knowledge is extended are thoughts sincere; 
only when thoughts are sincere are minds rectified; 
only when minds are rectified are the characters of persons cultivated; 
only when character is cultivated are our families regulated; 
only when families are regulated are states well governed; 
only when states are well governed is there peace in the world.
