As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have a testimony that Joseph Smith was a prophet, called of God, to usher in this last dispensation. I have the privilege to teach Relief Society this week and it teaches us about Joseph and Hyrum Smith. https://www.lds.org/manual
As I watch this video I am flooded with emotion and gratitude for Joseph Smith and also for his brother Hyrum Smith and their fight to defend the truth they know. It reminds me of the general conference talk Elder Holland currently gave (April 2014), 'The Cost-and Blessings-of Discipleship'
(Elder Holland's Talk).
Elder Holland stated "With admiration and encouragement for everyone who will need to remain steadfast in these latter days, I say to all and especially the youth of the Church that if you haven’t already, you will one day find yourself called upon to defend your faith or perhaps even endure some personal abuse simply because you are a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Such moments will require both courage and courtesy on your part."
I will be showing this video as it brings a spirit of truthfulness, courage, and dedication.
Praise to the Man, our Prophet, Joseph Smith.
