King Follett Discourse -- E

E — Element, no Beginning, no End

a. In the beginning, the head of the Gods called a council of the Gods; and they came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it [the inhabitants*]. 

b. When we begin to learn [in*] this way, we begin to learn the only true God, [We find out God*] and what kind of a being we have got to worship.

c. Having a knowledge of God, we begin to know how to approach Him, and how to ask so as to receive an answer [so that He will answer*].

d. [As soon as we begin to*] When we understand the character of God, and [we begin to know*] how to come to Him, [He begins to come to us.*]

e. When we are ready to come to him, he is ready to come to [receive*] us.

f. He begins to unfold the heavens to us, and to tell us all about it [before our prayers get to His ears*]. When we are ready to come to him, he is ready to come to us.    

a. Now, I ask all who hear me, why the learned men who are preaching salvation, say that God created the heavens and the earth out of nothing?

b. The reason is, that they are unlearned in the things of God, and have not the gift of the Holy Ghost; they account it blasphemy in any one to contradict their idea. If you tell them that God made the world out of something, they will call you a fool. [The reason is that they are unlearned.*] But I am learned, and know more than all the world put together. The Holy Ghost does, anyhow, and He is within me, and comprehends more than all the world: and I will associate myself with Him [it*].

c. You ask the learned doctors why they say the world was made out of nothing; and they will answer, “Doesn’t the Bible say He created the world?” And they infer, from the word create, that it must have been made out of nothing.      

d. Now, the word create came from the baurau which does not mean to create out of nothing; [What does baurau mean?*], it means to organize; the same as a man would organize materials and build a ship. Hence, we infer that God [Himself*] had materials to organize the world out of chaos — chaotic matter, which is element, and in which dwells all the glory. 

e. Element had an existence from the time he had.

f. The pure principles of element are principles which can never be destroyed; they may be organized and re­organized, but not destroyed. [Nothing can be destroyed.*] 

e. They had no beginning, and can have no end.
