19 truths and 1 lie

George Q. Cannon

I say to you that Satan would tell you nineteen

truths and would perform nineteen miracles to get

you to accept one untruth and to take a wrong step.

That is the kind of power he exercises. Do not be

deceived, my brethren and sisters. Try the spirits, and

see whether they are of God or not. Cling to the

authority of the Priesthood, which God sent His

messengers to bestow upon man. If you do so, I will

assure you, as a servant of God, you will be led back

into the presence of God and the Lamb.
