God made provisions before the world was— for every creature in
all sin shall be forgivn in this world or world to com—— except one. Salvation for all men who have not committed a certain sin
can save every man who has not committd the unpardonable sin. cannot commit the unpdonbl unpardonable sin after the dissolution of the body—— Knowledge saves a man.—
no way for a man to come to undestadig understanding but giv his consent to the comandmet commandment—— Damnd by mortification.—— a lake as of fire of brimstone— as exquisite the disappointment of the mind of man——
why? must commit the unpardonable sin in this world. will suffer in the eternal world until he will be exalted.—
works of the devil. the plans the devil laid to save the world.—
Devil said he could save them all— Lot fell on Jesus.——
all sin &c fogen forgiven except the sin against the Holy Ghost.— Got to deny the plan of Salvation. &c— with his eyes open.— Like many of the apostates of church of the church of Jesus Christ.— of Last Days
Let All be careful.— lest you be deceived. best men brings forth best works. [p. [70]]
