The Fruit of the Tree of Life

“Wherefore, the wicked are rejected from the righteous, and also from that tree of life, whose fruit is most precious and most desirable above all other fruits; yea, and it is the greatest of all the gifts of God. And thus I spake unto my brethren. Amen.” (1 Nephi...

GenCon Outtakes Vol. 2

Today brothers and sisters I will take for my text the 1st chapter, 6th verse from the book of Revelation–“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father: to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” It is altogether correct in...
