Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Certainly Christ met with opposition from his youth up no different than Joseph Smith

Christ learned obedience by the things which he suffered. He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. How so? Because like Joseph Smith the adversary knew that he was to be a disturber of his kingdom, and he met with opposition as Joseph Smith did from his youth up, for example he had to flee into Egypt. But there was more than that. Certainly, while we don't have it recorded, and while he grew in favor with God and man, nevertheless, the great ones of his day would take notice of this obscure carpenters son whose circumstances necessitated his earning his means by his daily labor.
