Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 101: September 7, 1939
I need not dwell here upon the vagaries of thought which existed then and continue to exist today regarding the nature of God. There is nothing so deadening to religion in the present world as the uncertainty of Christian leaders when they speak in regard to the existence and nature of Deity.
Such vagaries and uncertainties do not exist in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through the personal experiences of Joseph Smith, God became a reality. Jesus of Nazareth became the Son of God whose resurrection was real and who exists today with a resurrected body of ﬂesh and bone. To Joseph Smith there was no slightest shadow of doubt. Eighteen years after his initial experience he wrote of that occasion: I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two personages, and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true. I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God and come under condemnation.
