"I bear my solemn witness that these gifts are with the Church today. The sick are healed, the eyes of the blind are opened, the ears of the deaf are unstopped, the lame are made to walk. The gift of tongues blesses our missionaries and others the world over. The gifts of wisdom and knowledge are evidenced by the leadership of our people everywhere. Devils are cast out, spirits are discerned, the gift of faith is demonstrated on every side. Many mighty miracles give evidence that this is indeed his church, the church of Jesus Christ. All the gifts and powers and blessings that have always identified Christ's church are with the Church today." — James A. Cullimore, "Gifts of the Spirit," "Ensign," Nov. 1974, p. 27

"Among the sure signs of the true church of Christ are the accompanying spiritual gifts. This has always been from the beginning. When the authority of the priesthood has been found on the earth, it is accompanied by the manifestations of spiritual gifts." — James A. Cullimore, "Gifts of the Spirit," "Ensign," Nov. 1974, p. 27

"The lifeblood of the Church is the Holy Ghost functioning through the holy priesthood. The Church is guided in every move by revelation." — James A. Cullimore, "Grieve Not the Holy Spirit, Lest We Lose It," Ensign, May 1978, p. 26

"Divorce is usually the result of one or both not living the gospel. I suppose this is the same reason divorce was finally permitted in the time of Moses, as referred to by the Savior as he answered the Pharisees, when he said: 'Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.' (Matt. 19:8.) And so in our day members do not abide by the law of the gospel in its fullness, and, as in the day of Moses, divorce is permitted, when deemed necessary, although it was never intended to be.

"If, in marriage, both parties would make gospel standards and principles the basis of their marriage, few problems would arise they could not handle. When one or the other or both begin to compromise gospel standards, problems follow." - James A. Cullimore, "Marriage Is Intended to Be Forever," Ensign, June 1971, p. 93

“It matters not what our nationality, our race, our culture, our academic degree, or our political or social standing. We build security and strength in our lives by living the gospel. President Joseph Fielding Smith said: ‘And there is no cure for the ills of the world except the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our hope for peace, for temporal and spiritual prosperity, and for an eventual inheritance in the kingdom of God is found only in and through the restored gospel.’ ("Counsel to the Saints and to the World," Joseph Fielding Smith, Ensign, July 1972, p. 27.) 

“May I say to members of the Church everywhere, this is how we establish Zion where we live, by living the gospel, by being pure in heart, by being worthy.” - James A. Cullimore, “To Be in the World but Not of the World,” Ensign (CR), January 1974, p. 119

And then he gave us the real key to joy and happiness. He said: "But learn that he who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come." (D&C 59:23.) Peace comes as the Father witnesses unto us his divine approval of the things that we are doing. This peace is a basis of real joy and happiness, and it comes to us through the gospel of Jesus Christ. - James A. Cullimore, "Conference Report," October 1967, Afternoon Meeting, p.45
