“Never mind the world nor what they can say or do, for they can only do what the Lord permits them. . . . We will send out the gospel to them, and continue to advocate the principles of truth, and to organize ourselves according to the order of God, and seek to be one---for if we are not one we are not the Lord’s and never can be, worlds without end” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: John Taylor, p. 60).
