If the Infidel Has Truth

on October 25, 2012

“Mormonism,” so-called, embraces every principle pertaining to life and salvation, for time and eternity. No matter who has it. If the infidel has got truth it belongs to “Mormonism.” The truth and sound doctrine possessed by the sectarian world, and they have a great deal, all belong to this Church. As for their morality, many of them are , morally, just as good as we are. All that is good, lovely, and praisemorthy belongs to this Church and Kingdom. “Mornonism” includes all truth. There is no truth but what belongs to the Gospel. It is life, eternal life; it is bliss; it is the fulness of all things ….” (Brigham Young, Quoted in Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Brigham Young, p 16)

Brigham Young, the second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, said that, “If the infidel has got truth it belongs to ‘Mormonism.’ ” The Utah People’s Party asserts that the things we have quoted and those we will quote from the teachings of Marcus Tullius Cicero are true. That being the case, they are part of our religion according to the principle taught by Brigham Young above. As far as we know, Cicero had no knowledge of the atoning sacrifice of our Savior. That being the case, Cicero was not a Christian, but he knew some truths that the citizens of every county should learn and practice in the twenty-first century and beyond.

Speaking of members of other faiths, President Young says two things. They “…have a great deal…” of truth and “…many of them are, morally, just as good as we are.” The Utah People’s Party urges all Latter Day Saints to take to heart these important teachings.
