Description

Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 3: A Monthly Magazine of Home Literature; July, 1882 Soon after the Gospel was established, in Kirtland, and during the absence of the authorities of the Church, many false spirits were introduced, many strange visions were seen, and wild enthusiastic notions were entertained; men run out of doors under the influence of this spirit, and some of them got upon stumps of trees and shouted, and all kinds of extravagances were entered into by them; one man pursued a ball that he said he saw flying in the air, until he came to aprecipice, when he jumped into the top of a tree, which saved his life; and many ridiculous things were entered into, calculated to bring disgrace upon the Church of God, to cause the Spirit of God to be withdrawn, and to uproot and destroy those glorious princi ples which had been developed for the salvation of the human family. But when the authorities returned, the spirit was made manifest, those members that were exercised with it were tried for their fellowship, and those that would not repent and forsake it, were cut off. At a subsequent period, a Shaker spirit was on the point of being introduced, and at another time the Methodist and Presbyterian falling-down power, but the spirit was rebuked and put down, and those who would not submit to rule and good order were disfellowshipped. We have also had brethren and sisters who have had the gift of tongues falsely; they would speak in a muttering unnatu ral voice, and their bodies be distorted like the Irvingites before alluded to; whereas, there is. Nothing unnatural in the Spirit of God. A circumstance of this kind took place in Upper Canada, but was rebuked by the presiding Elder; another, a woman, near the same place, professed to have the discerning of spirits, and began to accuse another sis ter of things that she was not guilty of.
