So, how could Gospel “authority” have left the earth, needing “restoration”? “…in the latter times some shall depart from the faith…”—1 Timothy 4:1 If only “some” would depart from the faith, how could a “complete apostasy” have occurred?

Further, former Church President Gordon B. Hinckley once said...

This essay will introduce the subject of nihilism and track the two main routes by which liberals can change into nihilists.

    May 21st. DIVINE REASONINGS OF FAITH "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33 Immediately we look at these words of Jesus, we find them the most revolutionary statement human ears ever listened to. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God." We argue in exactly the opposite way, even the most spiritually-minded of us - "But I must live; I must make so much money; I must be clothed; I must be fed." The great concern of our lives is not the kingdom of God, but...

But when you are baptized with the Holy Ghost, you find "clouds and darkness are round about Him."
