The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - Doctrine and Covenants 1:37-38


(11/07/02)
"Yet man's hope of gaining salvation is in direct proportion to his knowledge of God and the laws of salvation. No man can be saved in ignorance of Jesus Christ and the laws of the gospel. Man is saved no faster than he gains knowledge of God and the saving truths recorded in the scriptures. A fountain cannot rise above its source; a people cannot live laws of which they are ignorant, nor believe in a Christ about whom they know little or nothing. The Lord expects his people to learn the doctrines of salvation. 'Search these commandments' (D. & C. 1:37), is a decree which applies in principle to all revelations of all ages." Bruce R. McConkie, "Doctrinal New Testament Commentary," 3 vols. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965-1973], 1:201

"Concerning the principles we learn about, we need to remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is undeviating. As you know, man is continually seeking to rationalize the scriptures, fitting them to a here and now expediency or perhaps fitting them to meet a temporary convenience, but the Lord says in latter-day revelation: 'Search these commandments, for they are true.... What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself.' He concludes with an observation that should be taken as a guide for every young Latter-day Saint: '...whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.' (D&C 1:37-38.) Isn't it reassuring that we have access to day-to-day direction from living prophets?" Robert L. Simpson, "How to Gain and Hold onto Your Testimony," "New Era," Mar. 1972, p. 5-6

"Here then is the key-look to the prophets for the words of God, which will show us how to prepare for the calamities that are to come. For the Lord, in that same section, states: 'What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.' (D&C 1:38.)" Ezra Taft Benson. "God, Family, Country: Our Three Great Loyalties," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1974], p. 266

"It is a mistake to depend solely upon the Church organizations to give children a knowledge of the principles of the gospel. The primary and the final responsibility to bring up their children in light and truth rests with parents. There is no better place to find this knowledge than in the standard works." Marion G. Romney, "Learning for the Eternities," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1977], p. 124

(11/11/02)
"Section 1 of the Doctrine and Covenants is the Lord's preface to the book. The Doctrine and Covenants is the only book in the world that has a preface written by the Lord Himself. In that preface He declares to the world that His voice is unto all men (see D&C 1:2), that the coming of the Lord is nigh (see D&C 1:12), and that the truths found in the Doctrine and Covenants will all be fulfilled (see D&C 1:37-38)." Ezra Taft Benson, "The Gift of Modern Revelation," "Ensign," Nov. 1986, p. 79
