Excerpt from Millennial Star, Vol. 77: December 16, 1915
Understanding that faith comes from reliable evidence, we can see that through the knowledge given in the Book of Mormon, we, as a people, are far in advance of those who have not yet come to regard it as a divine record.
We have yet to bring to our aid the strongest and most conclu sive of all evidence obtainable through any possible source - the Doctrine and Covenants, or the revelations given through Joseph Smith, the Prophet, concerning the will of God with respect to our actions in this dispensation. Here proof is given, further establishing the truth of the Bible and the Book of Mormon. All evidence is made fresh, facts are impressed more firmly; and then the characteristics and attributes of God, and the Christ, and likewise the Holy Ghost, are very simply and comprehensively explained. Consider the plain words as recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants, Sec. 110: 2-4: We saw the Lord standing upon the breast-work of the pulpit, before us, and under his feet was a paved work of pure gold in color like amber. His eyes were as a ﬂame of fire, the hair of his head was white like the pure snow, his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun, and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great water, even the voice of Jehovah, saying - I am the first and the last, I am he who liveth, I am he who was slain, I am your advocate with the Father.
