Another week has passed us by and another week has dawned. We had a wonderful sacrament on Sunday. It was our fast meeting were our members were able to share with all who were gathered how the gospel of the Saviour touches their lives and how we can become closer to the Almighty. We were all given our new Doctrine and Covenants this Sunday. We now have the only Doctrine and Covenants to be approved by the Prophet Joseph Smith before his martyrdom. It truly was a fantastic meeting in which all present felt the spirit.

However, once again persecution has reared its ugly head. Persecution directed at our Prophet Matthew Gill and also at the Church it’s self. It seems that Satan is really giving us a buffering at the moment. Our Prophet has said that “In times of great joy and jubilation, when the work of the Lord is going forward from strength to strength Satan is at his most destructive. For it is his will to destroy the works of righteousness” We have once again received communication from a member of a sect of Mormonism that holds its headquarters in Utah in the United States of America.

The person who sent the letter to us did so with no other reason than to cause offence and to ridicule. It was my understanding that the LDS church promoted unity and understanding between itself and other denominations. It would seem that its members do not hold with this directive. Its members are nothing short of a disgrace. Our prophet has asked for dialogue to take place with these so called Christians so that we may come to a better understanding but as of yet nothing has been forthcoming. It seems to me that these people are only interested in causing hatred and have no interest in real Christian ethics. After trying to talk to the person responsible for the letter they refused point blank to talk to our representative, this only goes to show us that they are insecure about their beliefs. We welcome all those who wish to talk and discuss religion. The Latter Day Church of Christ wish to foster an atmosphere of love and understanding. We just wish to say that if any one wish's to know what The latter Day Church of Christ believes and what we are about then please come to us and we will be more than happy to sit and talk with you. After all the gospel of Christ is a gospel of love and good news not of hatred and ignorance. Maybe these people and the person who wrote the letter to us should look upon words spoken of by the Founder of Mormonism.

The Savior said, . . . "Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake; rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the Prophets which were before you." Now, dear brethren, if any men ever had reason to claim this promise, we are the men; for we know that the world not only hate us, but they speak all manner of evil of us falsely, for no other reason than that we have been endeavoring to teach the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Joseph Smith)

Look upon these words and hang your heads in shame.
