Those who have real and sincere faith
in God are willing to take Him at His word; and with these the first
principles of the doctrine should long ago have been established;
much of the superstructure of gold and silver and precious stones
should already be erected, and the work be steadily progressing.
Such are able, if they are loyal and true to God, to discern between
truth and error. We ought to know what we believe and why we
believe it, and then should be bold and uncompromising in declaring
it; for “if the trumpet give an uncertain sound who shall prepare
himself to the battle?"
