“The Spirit of God Wrought Upon Other Gentiles”

K. Douglas Bassett
(Conference Report, Oct. 1950, p. 64)
“It was the Lord that inspired that little band of people [Pilgrims] who crossed the mighty ocean and landed at Plymouth rock, because they desired to worship him according to the dictates of their own conscience. He watched over them and safeguarded their descendants and those who followed them to America, and in due time, there came an opportunity to establish liberty such as humankind had not known before.” (George Albert Smith, Conference Report, Oct. 1922, pp. 95-96)
