What scriptures do they use in the House of Aaron? Does it include the Book of Mormon or other scriptures? Dr. John Conrad is chief high priest and will answer these questions.
GT: Let’s jump back to Scripture. So, it sounds like the Bible…
John: The Bible is our basis. The Levitical writings.
GT: The Levitical writings, so, that’s Glendenning.
John: Those are the revelations and some of those are epistles he wrote, that’s very much a part of what our belief system is. We probably don’t study them as much as we used to. But like this place here, Eskdale, came into being because there’s a writing, Levitical writings 241. It says, “Go into the lands of the earth and find a place where people,” basically, I’m really summarizing, “Where people will learn to live together, and learn to be consecrated, and there, they’ll be able to find the necessities of life.” So, I could say I didn’t believe them, but I’d have to back up and say, “Well, the harvest of that seed is surrounding me.”
John: So, I think it’s important to realize that we see the Bible as the basis, but that God can speak and that those are words, we believe, to us. I’d be the first to say I read some of the writings, and I don’t understand them.
I also asked him about the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants. Check out our conversation….
