Passage: Jacob 5:4 - Jacob 5:24
4 And he labored diligently that he might lead away the hearts of the people, insomuch that he did lead away many hearts.
5 And he knowing that I, Jacob, had faith in Christ which should come, Wherefore, he sought much opportunity that he might come unto me;
6 And he was learned, that he had a perfect knowledge of the language of the people; Wherefore, he could use much flattery and much power of speech according to the power of the devil.
7 And he had hope to shake me from the faith, notwith- standing the many revelations and the many things which I had seen concerning these things; For I truly had seen angels and they had ministered unto me,
8 And also, I had heard the voice of the Lord speaking unto me in very word from time to time, Wherefore, I could not be shaken.
9 And it came to pass that he came unto me and on this wise did he speak unto me, saying: "Brother Jacob, I have sought much opportunity that I might speak unto you, For I have heard and also know that thou goest about much, preaching that which ye call the gospel, or the doctrine of Christ;
10 And ye have led away much of this people, that they pervert the right way of God and keep not the law of Moses, which is the right way, And convert the law of Moses into the worship of a Being which ye say shall come many hundred years hence.
11 "And now behold, I, Sherem, declare unto you that this is blasphemy, For no man knoweth of such things, for he cannot tell of things to come."

14 And I saith unto him: "Deniest thou the Christ which should come?"
15 And he saith: "If there should be a Christ, I would not deny Him; But I know that there is no Christ, neither hath been, nor never will be."
16 And I saith unto him: "Believest thou the scriptures?"
17 And he saith: "Yea."
18 And I saith unto him: "Then ye do not understand them, for they truly testify of Christ;
19 Behold, I say unto you that none of the prophets have written nor prophesied, save they have spoken concerning this Christ;
20 And this is not all- It hath been made manifest unto me, for I have heard and seen; And it also hath been made manifest unto me by the power of the Holy Ghost;
21 Wherefore, I know if there should be no atonement made, all mankind must be lost."
22 And it came to pass that he saith unto me: "Show me a sign by this power of the Holy Ghost in the which ye know so much."
23 And I said unto him: "What am I, that I should tempt God to show unto thee a sign in the thing which thou knowest to be true?
24 Yet thou wilt deny it because thou art of the devil;
