There is no subject which is more ridiculed by the religious world, at the present day (May, 1854), than that of New Revelation . All Christendom profess to admit that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are still in existence , and that they are unchangeable in their attributes, and that there are just as many angels now as in ancient times; but to assert that any of these holy beings have communicated any New Revelation to man since the first century of the Christian era, is considered, if not blasphemy, something near akin to it. Now a religion that excludes New Revelation from its principles, is just the very religion that suits the devil: he is well pleased with it. He cares not how moral people may be, nor how genteel and polished in their deportment, nor how much they go to church, nor how many prayers they pretend to offer up, nor how pious they may be in every respect, if they will only disbelieve in New Revelation ; for he knows well that God has nothing to do, nor never had, with any religion that did not acknowledge Prophets, and Revelators, through whom He could speak and reveal His will to his sons and daughters. The devil knows that God never had a church on the earth without inspired men in it. No other church gives him any uneasiness. He likes to see them pray and be very sanctimonious, as long as he knows that they have no faith in New Revelation. The devil rejoices, and his angels are glad, when they look over their wide spread dominions, and behold countless churches and synagogues professedly built to the God of ancient revelation, and contemplate the hundreds of millions whom they have deluded with the idea that all New Revelation is unnecessary. So long as the devil can deceive the people with this anti-christian and unscriptural doctrine, he knows that he is sure of them. Orson Pratt, 1854
