“I Command All Men ... That They Shall Write”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

In view of this statement and the following in verse 12: "And I shall also speak to all the nations of the earth, and they shall write it," the utter indifference to all sacred literature, except the Bible, is rather unfortunate. As Latter-day Saints we have accepted the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price as inspired guides to eternal life. But we also acknowledge our obligation to accept truth from whatever source it comes. All the sacred writings will some day be gathered together. (v. 13)
