“Why Did You Have to Take Them?”


Lucy Mack Smith


What did Lucy Mack Smith hear the Spirit say during her plea to Heavenly Father as to why Joseph and Hyrum were killed?

A)                 “I have taken them to myself so they can have rest”

B)                 “It’s Brigham Young’s turn to lead this Church”

C)                 “I have taken them to me to see if the Saints will follow those things that Joseph and Hyrum taught”

D)                 “They have finished their work that I have given them”


Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   Missionaries

Shortly after the Church was organized on April 6, 1830, all of Joseph Smith’s brothers, even fourteen-year-old Don Carlos, were ordained to be missionaries.
