This correspondence is called the Wentworth Letter. Joseph listened to his teachings and pronounced him a false prophet Smith, History of the Church, 2: —7. The Articles of Faith also answer questions regarding church organization, priesthood authority, and the presence or cessation of spiritual gifts, prophecy, seership, and revelation.
Spelling and capitalization have been modernized. This scripture composes what Mormons refer to as the standard works.
God's universal will to save finds direct expression in the church, and thus it encompasses both that which is of this world and that which is of the world to come, both past and present. Holy things are revealed in it—for example in the sacraments—and the Holy Spirit is at work within it.
Jesus Christ has always been the only one capable of making such a sacrifice. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion the New Jerusalem will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
We believe that the popular religious theories of the day are incorrect; that they are without parallel in the revelations of God, as sanctioned by him; and that however faithfully they may be adhered to, or however zealously and warmly they may be defended, they will never stand the strict scrutiny of the word of life.
In article 7, another open-ended article, the Prophet Joseph returned to the subject of the Holy Ghost, elaborating more on this third member of the Godhead.
It consists of those who will belong to the bride of Christ, and will thus only be revealed at the return of Christ.
Though all believers share in the holiness of the church, the narrower meaning of the "community of the saints" nevertheless has an eschatological dimension.
