We have been allowed to discard much of what prophets in this dispensation have taught because of the hardness of our hearts.
That is nothing new. Moses suffered ancient Israel to write writs of divorcement because of the hardness of their hearts. But from the beginning it was not so.
And it is critical that we realize of such truths that Zion cannot be built without them. We cannot build Zion on hard hearts. We will have to repent, and cleave to every truth we have rejected before we can begin to begin to build Zion in earnest.
Sure, we are accumulating large numbers now. That is fine. But we cannot build Zion until our old men see visions and our young men dream dreams. We cannot build Zion until we cease to live below our privileges for Zion is build on the graces of our God and on the feast of the gifts of the spirit.
And we cannot enjoy those until we reclaim the basic truths we have hardened our hearts against. We cannot build Zion while rejecting what the Father laid out in Eden. We cannot be redeemed and stand at the tree of life while rejecting the things God declared at that very place.
We will have to remember that we were commanded to multiply and replenish the earth, that God set the father at the head of the home, that the command to provide necessities was directed to Adam, that only when Adam and Eve are given in marriage may they cleave together as one flesh, that when God has put together man and woman then man should not put them asunder save it be for adultery, and we must not allow ourselves to forget what many now wish to now erase: that God created them male and female after the image of God.
The most direct route to Zion is the one of repentance. For the celestial city cannot be built, cannot even be begun, except on the principles of the laws of the celestial kingdom.
As Christ said in his day, so it is true of ours. We should not think Zion can be built by destroying the prophets. When Zion is finally built, we will look back and see that not one jot nor tittle of the prophets of this dispensation have passed away, but have all been fulfilled.
