But  by the transgression of these holy laws, man  became sensual and devlish, and became fall en man.
5 Wherefore the Almighty God gave his  only begotten Son, as it is written in those  scriptures which have been given of him; he  suffered temptations but gave no heed unto  them; he was crucified, died, and rose again  the third day; and ascended into heaven to sit  down on the right hand of the Father, to reign  with almighty power according to the will of  the Father, that as many as would believe and  be baptized, in his holy name, and endure in  faith to the end should be saved: not only those  who believed after he came in the meridian of  time in the flesh, but all those from the begin ning, even as many as were before he came,  who believed in the words of the holy proph ets, who spake as they were inspired by the  gift of the Holy Ghost, who truly testified of  him in all things, should have eternal life, as  well as those who should come after, who  should believe in the gifts and callings of God  by the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of  the Father, and of the Son, which Father, Son,  and Holy Ghost are one God, infinite and eter nal, without end. Amen. [p. 93]
