The Three Nephites and the Doctrine of Translation

posted Mar 08, 2017 02:24:33 by GospelMama
I have been curious about translation since it has been mentioned here and I found this article very interesting.

"The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that “the doctrine of translation is a power which belongs to this [the] Priesthood. There are many things which belong to the powers of the Priesthood and the keys thereof, that have been kept hid from before the foundation of the world; they are hid from the wise and prudent to be revealed in the last times” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith 170; hereafter TPJS)."

That is a good primer for those who are new to the concept of translation. I'm pretty sure there isn't anything much more in depth than that because translated men and women don't exactly talk about their experiences.

Good article! Thanks for sharing. I was especially interested in point "5. Translated beings have knowledge and wisdom given unto them that exceed human perspective."
Love.
