History, 1838–1856, volume C-1 [2 November 1838–31 July 1842]

January 25 not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? Nay ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brother, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Cor. 6: 1–11.
Who, observing these things, would go to law, distressing his brother; thereby giving rise to hardness, evil speaking, strifes and animosities amongst those who have covenanted to keep the commandments of God— who have taken upon them the name of Saints, and if Saints are to judge Angels, and also to judge the world— why then are they not competent to judge in temporal matters, especially in trivial cases, taking the Law of the Lord for their guide, brotherly kindness, charity &c as well as the law of the land. Brethren, these are evils which ought not to exist among us. We hope the time will speedily arrive when these things will be done away, and every one stand in the office of his calling, as a faithful servant of God— building each other up— bearing each other’s infirmities, and so fulfil the law of Christ— William Marks
