Passage: Moroni 7:52 - Moroni 8:19
52 Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail; But charity is the pure love of Christ, And it endureth forever; And whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with them.
53 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, That ye may be filled with this love which He hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of His Son Jesus Christ, That ye may become the sons of God, That when He shall appear, we shall be like Him- for we shall see Him as He is- That we may have this hope, That we may be purified even as He is pure. Amen.
1 An epistle of my father Mormon, written to me, Moroni. And it was written unto me soon after my calling to the ministry.
2 And on this wise did he write unto me, saying: "My beloved son Moroni, I rejoice exceedingly that your Lord Jesus Christ hath been mindful of you and hath called you to His ministry and to His holy work;
3 I am mindful of you always in my prayers, Continually praying unto God the Father, in the name of His holy Child Jesus, That He through His infinite goodness and grace will keep you through the endurance of faith on His name to the end.
4 "And now my son, I speak unto you concerning that which grieveth me exceedingly; For it grieveth me that there should disputations rise among you;
5 For if I have learned the truth, there have been disputations among you concerning the baptizing of your little children.
6 "And now my son, I desire that ye should labor exceedingly that this gross error should be removed from among you; For, for this intent I have written this epistle.
7 "For immediately after I had learned these things of you, I inquired of the Lord concerning the matter;
8 And the word of the Lord came to me by the power of the Holy Ghost, saying: 'Listen to the words of Christ your Redeemer, your Lord and your God;
9 Behold, I came into the world, not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance; The whole need no physician, but they that are sick; Wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; Wherefore, the curse of Adam is taken from them in Me, that it hath no power over them; And the law of circumcision is done away in Me.'
10 "And after this manner did the Holy Ghost manifest the word of God unto me; Wherefore, my beloved son, I know that it is solemn mockery before God that ye should baptize little children.
11 "Behold, I say unto you that this thing shall ye teach: Repentance and baptism unto they which are accountable and capable of committing sin; Yea, teach parents that they must repent and be baptized and humble themselves as their little children, And they shall all be saved with their little children; And their little children need no repentance, neither baptism.
12 "Behold, baptism is unto repentance to the fulfilling the commandments unto the remission of sins;
13 But little children are alive in Christ, even from the foundation of the world; If not so, God is a partial God, and also a changeable Being and a respecter to persons; For how many little children have died without baptism?
14 Wherefore, if little children could not be saved without baptism, these must have gone to an endless hell.
15 "Behold, I say unto you that he that supposeth that little children needeth baptism is in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity, For he hath neither faith, hope nor charity; Wherefore, should he be cut off while in the thought, he must go down to hell;
16 For awful is the wickedness to suppose that God saveth one child because of baptism and the other must perish because he hath no baptism;
17 Wo be unto him that shall pervert the ways of the Lord after this manner! For they shall perish, except they repent!
18 "Behold, I speak with boldness, having authority from God; For I fear not what man can do; For perfect love casteth out all fear; And I am filled with charity, which is everlasting love; Wherefore, all children are alike unto me; Wherefore, I love little children with a perfect love; And they are all alike and partakers of salvation;
19 For I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable Being, But He is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity.
