Chapter 23 • Revelation, 16 April 1830 [D&C 22]
CHAPTER XXIII.
 
1 A Commandment unto the church of Christ,  which was established in these last days, in the  year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred  and thirty: Given in , New-York, April,  1830, in consequence of some desiring to unite  with the church without re-baptism, who had  previously been baptized.
BEHOLD I say unto you, that all old cove nants have I caused to be done away in this  thing, and this is a new and everlasting cove nant; even that which was from the beginning.
2 Wherefore although a man should be baptized  an hundred times, it availeth him nothing;
3 For you cannot enter in at the straight gate by  the law of Moses, neither by your dead works;
4 For it is because of your dead works, that I have  caused this last covenant, and this church to be built  up unto me; even as in days of old.
5 Wherefore enter ye in at the gate, as I have  commanded, and seek not to counsel your God.—  Amen.
