One of the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism is to receive truth, let it come from whence it may.
There is one principle which is eternal; it is the duty of all men to protect their lives and the lives of the household, whenever necessity requires, and no power has a right to forbid it, should the last extreme arrive..
The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it.
We should gather all the good and true principles in the world and treasure them up, or we shall not come out true Mormons.
I teach them correct principles and they govern themselves.
