John ... being filled with the Holy Ghost from his mother's womb ... was baptized while he was yet in his childhood, and was ordained by the angel of God at the time he was eight days old. 84:27

Trivia: In Section 41, God commanded the church to build a house for someone. Who was that person?

Try to write a commandment like Joseph Smith's
(Or a Surah like Mohammad's)
Absurdity 67:1-14

1Behold and hearken, O ye elders of my church, who have assembled yourselves together, whose prayers I have heard, and whose hearts I know, and whose desires have come up before me.

2 Behold and lo, mine aeyes are upon you, and the heavens and the earth are in mine bhands, and the riches of eternity are mine to give.

Behold and hearken, elders of my church.

3Ye endeavored to believe that ye should receive the blessing which was offered unto you; but behold, verily I say unto you there were fears in your hearts, and verily this is the reason that ye did not receive.

4 And now I, the Lord, give unto you a testimony of the truth of these commandments which are lying before you.

You wanted to receive my blessing,

but you were afraid, so you didn't get it.

5Your eyes have been upon my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., and his language you have known, and his imperfections you have known; and you have sought in your hearts knowledge that you might express beyond his language; this you also know.

You've seen Joseph Smith, Jun.

And you've heard his language and his imperfections.

6Now, seek ye out of the Book of Commandments, even the least that is among them, and appoint him that is the most wise among you;

So select the least commandment in the Book of Commandments [1], and let the wisest person among you

7Or, if there be any among you that shall make one like unto it, then ye are justified in saying that ye do not know that they are true;

write a commandment like it.

If you can do that, then you can say they aren't true. [2]

8But if ye cannot make one like unto it, ye are under condemnation if ye do not bear record that they are true.

9 For ye know that there is no unrighteousness in them, and that which is righteous cometh down from above, from the Father of lights.

10 And again, verily I say unto you that it is your privilege, and a promise I give unto you that have been ordained unto this ministry, that inasmuch as you strip yourselves from jealousies and fears, and humble yourselves before me, for ye are not sufficiently humble, the veil shall be rent and you shall see me and know that I am - not with the carnal neither natural mind, but with the spiritual.

11 For no aman has seen God at any time in the flesh, except quickened by the Spirit of God.

12 Neither can any natural man abide the presence of God, neither after the carnal mind.

13 Ye are not able to abide the presence of God now, neither the ministering of angels; wherefore, continue in patience until ye are perfected.

But if you can't do it, you will be condemned.

14 Let not your minds turn back; and when ye are worthy, in mine own due time, ye shall see and know that which was conferred upon you by the hands of my servant Joseph Smith, Jun. Amen.
