Judas Goats lead sheep and goats to destruction, who are not worthy of eternal life.


  Judas, when he lost the faith, received the power of the devil, and betrayed the Son of God into the hands of murderers. Joseph Smith in like manner was betrayed into the hands of wicked men, who took his life. He was betrayed by apostates, by men whom he once loved when they were in our midst, and had the Spirit of the Lord. (Heber C. Kimball, J.D. 2:107)       The Prophet Joseph Smith elaborated on this strange mystical power that overtakes men, toan elder by the name of Behunnin:             When the Prophet had ended telling how he had been treated, Brother Behunnin remarked: "If I should leave this Church I would not do as those men have done: I would go to some remote place where Mormonism had never been heard of, settle down, and no one would ever learn that I knew anything about it."    The great Seer immediately replied: "Brother Behunnin, you don't know what you would do. No doubt these men once thought as you do. Before you joined this Church you stood on neutral ground. When the gospel was preached, good and evil were set before you. You could choose either or neither. There were two opposite masters inviting you to serve them. When you joined this Church, you enlisted to serve God. When you did that, you left the neutral ground, and you never can get back on to it. Should you forsake [39] the Master you enlisted to serve, it will be by the instigation of the evil one, and you will follow his dictation and be his servant." (Juvenile Instructor 27:492)
