I enjoyed reading the following, which is originally a blog post on "Mormon Chronicle", and I wanted to share it with the world. The truth according to God is not always popular with man. It may not even be always logical. But it is always right, and like the article says, time will prove it to be so.

This is worth pondering and learning about.  Enjoy.

“There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law. In any case that arises. . . one of two positions is necessarily true; that is, the thing is right within itself, and therefore deserves the protection of all law and all good citizens; or, it is wrong, and therefore to be prohibited by legal enactments; and in neither case, is the interposition of mob law, either necessary, justifiable or excusable.” (Abraham Lincoln, January 27, 1838; Collected Works 1:113)

In the Book of Mormon the Prophet Nephi exclaims: “O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm.” (2 Nephi 4:34)

Prophesying of our day, Nephi said, “They have all gone astray save it be a few, who are humble followers of Christ; nevertheless, they are led, that in many instances they do err because they are taught the precepts of men.” (2 Nephi 28:14)

Yes, it is the precepts of men versus the revealed word of God. The more we follow the word of God the less we are deceived, while those who follow the wisdom of men are deceived the most.
