J. Golden Kimball: “For the past month or so, I have been reading political platforms and promises, and pledges enough to last the people of these United States for a thousand years, if they are carried out...This is my platform: My faith is that God is the Father of all, and Christ is the Redeemer and Helper of all. I believe in Christ’s religion as He taught it, and I know that His doctrines never change. I further believe that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God, and that this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...” (J. Golden Kimball, His Sermons, December 1891-April 1938, edited by Bonnie Taylor, 133)
