HEARKEN, O ye people of my church, for  verily I say unto you, that these things were  spoken unto you for your profit and learning;
2 But notwithstanding those things which are writ ten, it always has been given to the elders of my  church, from the beginning, and ever shall be, to  conduct all meetings as they are directed and gui ded by the Holy Spirit:
3 Nevertheless ye are commanded never to cast  any one out from your public meetings, which are  held before the world:
4 Ye are also commanded not to cast any one,  who belongeth to the church, out of your sacrament  meetings:
5 Nevertheless, if any have trespassed, let him  not partake until he makes reconciliation.
6 And again I say unto you, ye shall not cast any  one out of your sacrament meetings, who is earnest ly seeking the kingdom;
7 I speak this concerning those who are not of the  church.
8 And again I say unto you, concerning your con firmation meetings, that if there be any that is not  of the church, that is earnestly seeking after the  kingdom, ye shall not cast them out; [p. 111]
tremble: and all nations shall be afraid because of the terror of the Lord, and the power of his might; even so: Amen.
