Do these judgments apply to us?

Thomas R. Valletta

“I have been hoping … that the sayings contained in that chapter would never apply to the daughters of Zion in our day; but I believe they will,” declared President Wilford Woodruff. “Some of the daughters of Zion do not seem willing to forsake the fashions of Babylon. … Think not, ye elders of Israel, ye sons and daughters of Zion, that we are going to live after the order of Babylon always. We are not. We shall be chastised and afflicted, and shall feel the chastening rod of the Almighty, unless we serve the Lord our God, and build up his kingdom” (Discourses of Wilford Woodruff, 226–27).
