The Burning of Gefle, Sweden

Image result for city on fire
Mormon missionary John Forsgren prophesied in 1850 that Gefle, Sweden would burn to the ground, why?
a.                  They burned a picture of the prophet Joseph Smith
b.                  They burned a picture of Brigham Young
c.                   He wiped the dust off of his feet after being rejected
d.                  He noticed that too many children played with matches
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Return borrowed items
From the life of John Brown:   Sunday, the [July 1847] 25th, we held the first meeting in the valley. Had a very interesting time. All of the Twelve present spoke. Brother Kimball said we had been miraculously preserved and led by the spirit of God in answer to prayer and one who could not realize this was without faith in His divine power. The President said he wanted the brethren, in overhauling their wagons, to return everything that did not belong to them to the owner, as many things had been changed by the way; even the value of 6 ¼ cents, for if they retained it, it would leak out and be a spot in their character that neither time nor eternity could erase. They could not get rid of it until burned out in hell. He meant a dishonest principle.
