1 Nephi (LDS 10:11) (RLDS 3:13-15) And it came to pass after my father had spoken these words he spake unto my brethren concerning the gospel which should be preached among the Jews, and also concerning the dwindling of the Jews in unbelief. And after they had slain the Messiah, who should come, and after he had been slain he should rise from the dead, and should make himself MANIFEST, by the HOLY GHOST, unto the Gentiles.
1 Nephi (LDS 10:17) (RLDS 3:23-26) And it came to pass after I, Nephi, having heard all the words of my father, concerning the things which he saw in a vision, and also the things which he spake by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, which POWER he received by faith on the Son of God—and the Son of God was the Messiah who should come—I, Nephi, was desirous also that I might see, and hear, and know of these things, by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, which is the GIFT of God unto all those who diligently seek him, as well in times of old as in the time that he should MANIFEST himself unto the children of men.
1 Nephi (LDS 10:19) (RLDS 3:29-32) For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round.
1 Nephi (LDS 10:22) (RLDS 3:36) And the HOLY GHOST giveth AUTHORITY that I should speak these things, and DENY them not.
1 Nephi (LDS 11:27) (RLDS 3:71-74) And I looked and beheld the Redeemer of the world, of whom my father had spoken; and I also beheld the prophet who should prepare the way before him. And the Lamb of God went forth and was baptized of him; and after he was baptized, I beheld the heavens open, and the HOLY GHOST come down out of heaven and ABIDE upon him in the form of a DOVE.
1 Nephi (LDS 12:7) (RLDS 3:113) And I also saw and bear record that the HOLY GHOST FELL upon twelve others; and they were ordained of God, and chosen.
1 Nephi (LDS 12:18) (RLDS 3:126-127) And the large and spacious building, which thy father saw, is vain imaginations and the pride of the children of men. And a great and a terrible gulf divideth them; yea, even the word of the justice of the Eternal God, and the Messiah who is the Lamb of God, of whom the HOLY GHOST BEARETH RECORD, from the beginning of the world until this time, and from this time henceforth and forever.
1 Nephi (LDS 13:37) (RLDS 3:187-189) And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the GIFT and the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; and if they endure unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.
2 Nephi (LDS 26:13) (RLDS 11:78-79) And that he MANIFESTETH himself unto all those who believe in him, by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; yea, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, working mighty miracles, signs, and wonders, among the children of men according to their faith.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:4) (RLDS 12:5) And they shall contend one with another; and their priests shall contend one with another, and they shall teach with their learning, and DENY the HOLY GHOST, which GIVETH UTTERANCE.
2 Nephi (LDS 28:26) (RDS 12:31) Yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and DENIETH the POWER of God, and the GIFT of the HOLY GHOST!
2 Nephi (LDS 28:31) (RLDS 12:39) Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, or maketh flesh his arm, or shall hearken unto the precepts of men, save their precepts shall be given by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:8) (RLDS 13:10) Wherefore, after he was baptized with water the HOLY GHOST DESCENDED upon him in the form of a DOVE.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:12) (RLDS 13:15) And also, the voice of the Son came unto me, saying: He that is baptized in my name, to him will the Father GIVE the HOLY GHOST, like unto me; wherefore, follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:13) (RLDS 13:16-17) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, I know that if ye shall follow the Son, with full purpose of heart, acting no hypocrisy and no deception before God, but with real intent, repenting of your sins, witnessing unto the Father that ye are willing to take upon you the name of Christ, by baptism—yea, by following your Lord and your Savior down into the water, according to his word, behold, then shall ye RECEIVE the HOLY GHOST; yea, then cometh the baptism of FIRE and of the HOLY GHOST; and then can ye SPEAK with the TONGUE OF ANGELS, and SHOUT PRAISES unto the Holy One of Israel.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:14) (RLDS 13:18) But, behold, my beloved brethren, thus came the voice of the Son unto me, saying: After ye have repented of your sins, and witnessed unto the Father that ye are willing to keep my commandments, by the baptism of water, and have received the baptism of FIRE and of the HOLY GHOST, and can speak with a NEW TONGUE, yea, even with the TONGUE OF ANGELS, and after this should DENY me, it would have been better for you that ye had not known me.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:17) (RLDS 13:22-24) Wherefore, do the things which I have told you I have seen that your Lord and your Redeemer should do; for, for this cause have they been shown unto me, that ye might know the gate by which ye should enter. For the gate by which ye should enter is repentance and baptism by water; and then cometh a REMISSION of your sins by FIRE and by the HOLY GHOST.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:18) (RLDS 13:25-26) And then are ye in this strait and narrow path which leads to eternal life; yea, ye have entered in by the gate; ye have done according to the commandments of the Father and the Son; and ye have RECEIVED the HOLY GHOST, which WITNESSES of the Father and the Son, unto the fulfilling of the promise which he hath made, that if ye entered in by the way ye should RECEIVE.
2 Nephi (LDS 31:21) (RLDS 13:31-32) And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the HOLY GHOST, which is ONE GOD, without end. Amen.
2 Nephi (LDS 32:2) (RLDS 14:2-3) Do ye not remember that I said unto you that after ye had RECEIVED the HOLY GHOST ye could speak with the TONGUE OF ANGELS? And now, how could ye speak with the TONGUE OF ANGELS save it were by the HOLY GHOST?
2 Nephi (LDS 32:3) (RLDS 14:3-4) Angels SPEAK by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; wherefore, they SPEAK the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
2 Nephi (LDS 32:5) (RLDS 14:6) For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and RECEIVE the HOLY GHOST, IT will SHOW unto you all things what ye SHOULD DO.
2 Nephi (LDS 33:1) (RLDS 15:1) And now I, Nephi, cannot write all the things which were taught among my people; neither am I mighty in writing, like unto speaking; for when a man SPEAKETH by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST the POWER of the HOLY GHOST CARRIETH it unto the HEARTS of the children of men.
Jacob (LDS 6:8) (RLDS 4:12-13) Behold, will ye REJECT these words? Will ye REJECT the words of the prophets; and will ye REJECT all the words which have been spoken concerning Christ, after so many have SPOKEN concerning him; and DENY the good word of Christ, and the POWER of God, and the GIFT of the HOLY GHOST, and quench the HOLY SPIRIT, and make a MOCK of the great PLAN of REDEMPTION, which hath been laid for you?
Jacob (LDS 7:12) (RLDS 5:20-21) And this is not all—it has been made MANIFEST unto me, for I have heard and seen; and it also has been made MANIFEST unto me by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; wherefore, I know if there should be no atonement made all mankind must be lost.
Jacob (LDS 7:13) (RLDS 5:22) And it came to pass that he said unto me: Show me a sign by this POWER of the HOLY GHOST, in the which ye know so much.
Jacob (LDS 7:17) (RLDS 5:30) And it came to pass that on the morrow the multitude were gathered together; and he spake plainly unto them and denied the things which he had taught them, and confessed the Christ, and the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, and the ministering of angels.
Alma (LDS 7:10) (RLDS 5:19) And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.
Alma (LDS 8:30) (RLDS 6:38) And Alma went forth, and also Amulek, among the people, to declare the words of God unto them; and they were FILLED with the HOLY GHOST.
Alma (LDS 9:21) (RLDS 7:30-31) Having been visited by the Spirit of God; having conversed with angels, and having been spoken unto by the voice of the Lord; and having the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation, and also many gifts, the gift of speaking with tongues, and the gift of preaching, and the GIFT of the HOLY GHOST, and the gift of translation;
Alma (LDS 13:12) (RLDS 10:4-5) Now they, after being SANCTIFIED by the HOLY GHOST, having their garments made white, being pure and spotless before God, could not look upon sin save it were with abhorrence; and there were many, exceedingly great many, who were made pure and entered into the rest of the Lord their God.
Alma (LDS 34:38) (RLDS 16:237-238) That ye CONTEND no more against the HOLY GHOST, but that ye RECEIVE IT, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.
Alma (LDS 36:24) (RLDS 17:22) Yea, and from that time even until now, I have labored without ceasing, that I might bring souls unto repentance; that I might bring them to taste of the exceeding joy of which I did taste; that they might also be born of God, and be FILLED with the HOLY GHOST.
Alma (LDS 39:5) (RLDS 19:7) Know ye not, my son, that these things are an abomination in the sight of the Lord; yea, most abominable above all sins save it be the shedding of innocent blood or DENYING the HOLY GHOST?
Alma (LDS 39:6) (RLDS 19:8-9) For behold, if ye DENY the HOLY GHOST when IT once has had place in you, and ye know that ye deny IT, behold, this is a sin which is unpardonable; yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness; yea, I say unto you, my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain a forgiveness.
3 Nephi (LDS 9:20) (RLDS 4:49-50) And ye shall offer for a sacrifice unto me a broken heart and a contrite spirit. And whoso cometh unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, him will I baptize with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST, even as the Lamanites, because of their faith in me at the time of their conversion, were baptized with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST, and they knew it not.
3 Nephi (LDS 11:25) (RLDS 5:25) Having authority given me of Jesus Christ, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the HOLY GHOST. Amen.
3 Nephi (LDS 11:27) (RLDS 5:27) And after this manner shall ye baptize in my name; for behold, verily I say unto you, that the Father, and the Son, and the HOLY GHOST are ONE; and I am in the Father, and the Father in me, and the Father and I are one.
3 Nephi (LDS 11:32) (RLDS 5:32-33) And this is my doctrine, and it is the doctrine which the Father hath given unto me; and I bear record of the Father, and the Father beareth record of me, and the HOLY GHOST BEARETH RECORD of the Father and me; and I bear record that the Father commandeth all men, everywhere, to repent and believe in me.
3 Nephi (LDS 11:35) (RLDS 5:36-37) Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my doctrine, and I bear record of it from the Father; and whoso believeth in me believeth in the Father also; and unto him will the Father bear record of me, for he will visit him with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST.
3 Nephi (LDS 11:36) (RLDS 5:38) And thus will the Father bear record of me, and the HOLY GHOST will BEAR RECORD unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the HOLY GHOST are ONE.
3 Nephi (LDS 12:1) (RLDS 5:44-47) And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words unto Nephi, and to those who had been called, (now the number of them who had been called, and received power and authority to baptize, was twelve) and behold, he stretched forth his hand unto the multitude, and cried unto them, saying: Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of these twelve whom I have chosen from among you to minister unto you, and to be your servants; and unto them I have given power that they may baptize you with water; and after that ye are baptized with water, behold, I will baptize you with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST; therefore blessed are ye if ye shall believe in me and be baptized, after that ye have seen me and know that I am.
3 Nephi (LDS 12:2) (RLDS 5:48-49) And again, more blessed are they who shall believe in your words because that ye shall testify that ye have seen me, and that ye know that I am. Yea, blessed are they who shall believe in your words, and come down into the depths of humility and be baptized, for they shall be visited with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST, and shall receive a REMISSION of their sins.
3 Nephi (LDS 12:6) (RLDS 5:53) And blessed are all they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be FILLED with the HOLY GHOST.
3 Nephi (LDS 15:23) (RLDS 7:22) And they understood me not that I said they shall hear my voice; and they understood me not that the Gentiles should not at any time hear my voice—that I should not MANIFEST myself unto them save it were by the HOLY GHOST.
3 Nephi (LDS 16:4) (RLDS 7:27-28) And I command you that ye shall write these sayings after I am gone, that if it so be that my people at Jerusalem, they who have seen me and been with me in my ministry, do not ask the Father in my name, that they may receive a knowledge of you by the HOLY GHOST, and also of the other tribes whom they know not of, that these sayings which ye shall write shall be kept and shall be manifested unto the Gentiles, that through the fulness of the Gentiles, the remnant of their seed, who shall be scattered forth upon the face of the earth because of their unbelief, may be brought in, or may be brought to a knowledge of me, their Redeemer.
3 Nephi (LDS 16:6) (RLDS 7:30) And blessed are the Gentiles, because of their belief in me, in and of the HOLY GHOST, which WITNESSES unto them of me and of the Father.
3 Nephi (LDS 18:37) (RLDS 8:71-72) And the multitude heard not the words which he spake, therefore they did not bear record; but the disciples bare record that he gave them power to give the HOLY GHOST. And I will show unto you hereafter that this record is true.
3 Nephi (LDS 19:9) (RLDS 9:10) And they did pray for that which they most desired; and they desired that the HOLY GHOST should be GIVEN unto them.
3 Nephi (LDS 19:13) (RLDS 9:14) And it came to pass when they were all baptized and had come up out of the water, the HOLY GHOST did FALL upon them, and they were FILLED with the HOLY GHOST and with FIRE.
3 Nephi (LDS 19:20) (RLDS 9:20) Father, I thank thee that thou hast GIVEN the HOLY GHOST unto these whom I have chosen; and it is because of their belief in me that I have chosen them out of the world.
3 Nephi (LDS 19:21) (RLDS 9:21) Father, I pray thee that thou wilt GIVE the HOLY GHOST unto all them that shall believe in their words.
3 Nephi (LDS 19:22) (RLDS 9:22) Father, thou hast GIVEN them the HOLY GHOST because they believe in me; and thou seest that they believe in me because thou hearest them, and they pray unto me; and they pray unto me because I am with them.
3 Nephi (LDS 20:27) (RLDS 9:65) And after that ye were blessed then fulfilleth the Father the covenant which he made with Abraham, saying: In thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed—unto the pouring out of the HOLY GHOST through me upon the Gentiles, which blessing upon the Gentiles shall make them mighty above all, unto the scattering of my people, O house of Israel.
3 Nephi (LDS 21:2) (RLDS 9:87-88) And behold, this is the thing which I will give unto you for a sign—for verily I say unto you that when these things which I declare unto you, and which I shall declare unto you hereafter of myself, and by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST which shall be GIVEN unto you of the Father, shall be made known unto the Gentiles that they may know concerning this people who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, and concerning this my people who shall be scattered by them;
3 Nephi (LDS 26:17) (RLDS 12:10) And it came to pass that the disciples whom Jesus had chosen began from that time forth to baptize and to teach as many as did come unto them; and as many as were baptized in the name of Jesus were FILLED with the HOLY GHOST.
3 Nephi (LDS 27:20) (RLDS 12:33) Now this is the commandment: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be SANCTIFIED by the RECEPTION of the HOLY GHOST, that ye may stand SPOTLESS before me at the last day.
3 Nephi (LDS 28:11) (RLDS 13:23) And the HOLY GHOST BEARETH RECORD of the Father and me; and the Father GIVETH the HOLY GHOST unto the children of men, because of me.
3 Nephi (LDS 28:18) (RLDS 13:29-30) But this much I know, according to the record which hath been given—they did go forth upon the face of the land, and did minister unto all the people, uniting as many to the church as would believe in their preaching; baptizing them, and as many as were baptized did RECEIVE the HOLY GHOST.
3 Nephi (LDS 29:6) (RLDS 13:59) Yea, wo unto him that shall DENY the revelations of the Lord, and that shall say the Lord no longer worketh by revelation, or by prophecy, or by gifts, or by tongues, or by healings, or by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST!
3 Nephi (LDS 30:2) (RLDS 14:2-3) Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of your evil doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your whoredoms, and of your secret abominations, and your idolatries, and of your murders, and your priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your strifes, and from all your wickedness and abominations, and come unto me, and be baptized in my name, that ye may receive a REMISSION of your sins, and be FILLED with the HOLY GHOST, that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of Israel.
4 Nephi (LDS 1:1) (RLDS 1:1-2) And it came to pass that the thirty and fourth year passed away, and also the thirty and fifth, and behold the disciples of Jesus had formed a church of Christ in all the lands round about. And as many as did come unto them, and did truly repent of their sins, were baptized in the name of Jesus; and they did also RECEIVE the HOLY GHOST.
4 Nephi (LDS 1:48) (RLDS 1:57-58) And it came to pass that when three hundred and twenty years had passed away, Ammaron, being CONSTRAINED by the HOLY GHOST, did hide up the records which were sacred—yea, even all the sacred records which had been handed down from generation to generation, which were sacred—even until the three hundred and twentieth year from the coming of Christ.
Mormon (LDS 1:14) (RLDS 1:15) And there were no gifts from the Lord, and the HOLY GHOST did not come upon any, because of their wickedness and unbelief.
Mormon (LDS 7:7) (RLDS 3:39) And he hath brought to pass the redemption of the world, whereby he that is found guiltless before him at the judgment day hath it given unto him to dwell in the presence of God in his kingdom, to sing ceaseless praises with the choirs above, unto the Father, and unto the Son, and unto the HOLY GHOST, which are ONE GOD, in a state of happiness which hath no end.
Mormon (LDS 7:10) (RLDS 3:32-33) And ye will also know that ye are a remnant of the seed of Jacob; therefore ye are numbered among the people of the first covenant; and if it so be that ye believe in Christ, and are baptized, first with water, then with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST, following the example of our Savior, according to that which he hath commanded us, it shall be well with you in the day of judgment. Amen.
Ether (LDS 5:4) (RLDS 2:3) And in the mouth of three witnesses shall these things be established; and the testimony of three, and this work, in the which shall be shown forth the power of God and also his word, of which the Father, and the Son, and the HOLY GHOST BEAR RECORD—and all this shall stand as a testimony against the world at the last day.
Ether (LDS 12:14) (RLDS 5:15) Behold, it was the faith of Nephi and Lehi that wrought the change upon the Lamanites, that they were baptized with FIRE and with the HOLY GHOST.
Ether (LDS 12:23) (RLDS 5:23-24) And I said unto him: Lord, the Gentiles will mock at these things, because of our weakness in writing; for Lord thou hast made us mighty in word by faith, but thou hast not made us mighty in writing; for thou hast made all this people that they could SPEAK much, because of the HOLY GHOST which thou hast GIVEN them;
Ether (LDS 12:41) (RLDS 5:41) And now, I would commend you to seek this Jesus of whom the prophets and apostles have written, that the grace of God the Father, and also the Lord Jesus Christ, and the HOLY GHOST, which BEARETH RECORD of them, may be and ABIDE in you forever. Amen.
Moroni (LDS 2:2) (RLDS 2:2) And he called them by name, saying: Ye shall call on the Father in my name, in mighty prayer; and after ye have done this ye shall have power that to him upon whom ye shall lay your hands, ye shall GIVE the HOLY GHOST; and in my name shall ye give it, for thus do mine apostles.
Moroni (LDS 2:3) (RLDS 2:3) Now Christ spake these words unto them at the time of his first appearing; and the multitude heard it not, but the disciples heard it; and on as many as they laid their hands, FELL the HOLY GHOST.
Moroni (LDS 3:4) (RLDS 3:3) And after this manner did they ordain priests and teachers, according to the gifts and callings of God unto men; and they ordained them by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, which was in them.
Moroni (LDS 6:4) (RLDS 6:4-5) And after they had been received unto baptism, and were wrought upon and CLEANSED by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, they were numbered among the people of the church of Christ; and their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God, to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ, who was the author and the finisher of their faith.
Moroni (LDS 6:9) (RLDS 6:9) And their meetings were conducted by the church after the manner of the workings of the Spirit, and by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; for as the POWER of the HOLY GHOST led them whether to preach, or to exhort, or to pray, or to supplicate, or to sing, even so it was done.
Moroni (LDS 7:32) (RLDS 7:33-34) And by so doing, the Lord God prepareth the way that the residue of men may have faith in Christ, that the HOLY GHOST may have place in their HEARTS, according to the POWER thereof; and after this manner bringeth to pass the Father, the covenants which he hath made unto the children of men.
Moroni (LDS 7:36) (RLDS 7:38-40) Or have angels ceased to appear unto the children of men? Or has he withheld the POWER of the HOLY GHOST from them? Or will he, so long as time shall last, or the earth shall stand, or there shall be one man upon the face thereof to be saved?
Moroni (LDS 7:44) (RLDS 7:59-50) If so, his faith and hope is vain, for none is acceptable before God, save the meek and lowly in heart; and if a man be meek and lowly in heart, and confesses by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST that Jesus is the Christ, he must needs have charity; for if he have not charity he is nothing; wherefore he must needs have charity.
Moroni (LDS 8:7) (RLDS 8:7-8) For immediately after I had learned these things of you I inquired of the Lord concerning the matter. And the word of the Lord came to me by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST, saying:
Moroni (LDS 8:9) (RLDS 8:10) And after this manner did the HOLY GHOST MANIFEST the word of God unto me; wherefore, my beloved son, I know that it is solemn mockery before God, that ye should baptize little children.
Moroni (LDS 8:26) (RLDS 8:29) And the remission of sins bringeth meekness, and lowliness of heart; and because of meekness and lowliness of heart cometh the VISITATION of the HOLY GHOST, which COMFORTER FILLETH with hope and perfect love, which love endureth by diligence unto prayer, until the end shall come, when all the saints shall dwell with God.
Moroni (LDS 8:28) (RLDS 8:24) Pray for them, my son, that repentance may come unto them. But behold, I fear lest the SPIRIT hath ceased striving with them; and in this part of the land they are also seeking to put down all POWER and AUTHORITY which cometh from God; and they are DENYING the HOLY GHOST.
Moroni (LDS 10:4) (RLDS 10:4-5) And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will MANIFEST the TRUTH of it unto you, by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST.
Moroni (LDS 10:5) (RLDS 10:5) And by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST ye may know the truth of all things.
Moroni (LDS 10:7) (RLDS 10:7) And ye may know that he is, by the POWER of the HOLY GHOST; wherefore I would exhort you that ye DENY not the POWER of God; for he worketh by POWER, according to the faith of the children of men, the same today and tomorrow, and forever.
