The Salt and the Light

Index to the installments/tracts of The Salt and the Light, including the titles of the individual sections.  The "revealing entity" is also noted, if applicable.

This series is partly in response to the flood of "revelations" sent from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS) to libraries throughout the world--including the one where I worked.  It is also in response to the scriptures I read in my childhood, having been raised in the [Salt Lake] Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, or "Mormons").

"Should the Lord Almighty send an angel to re-write the Bible, it would in many places be very different from what it now is. And I will even venture to say that if the Book of Mormon were now to be re-written, in many instances it would materially differ from the present translation. According as people are willing to receive the things of God, so the heavens send forth their blessings. If the people are stiff-necked, the Lord can tell them but little." (Journal of Discourses 9:311)
