Abstract

Some of the early saints in Kirtland, Ohio, incorporated overly-enthusiastic elements into their worship services which related to the Book of Mormon. Because misinterpreting the Book of Mormon was part of the problem for the saints in Kirtland, the Lord turned to the Book of Mormon to correct the error. Doctrine and Covenants 46 alludes to Moroni 10 to reaffirm that spiritual gifts are appropriate, but only if they are good, just, true, and bring people to Christ. This helped the saints to look at the scriptures in their overall context, which kept them from being deceived. The same is true today.
