Doctrine and Covenants 74

(November 1, 2013)
In all of the times I have read this Section, it has never before hit me the way that it hit me today that the Lord is telling Joseph Smith that Paul’s comments at the start were not doctrine, nor where they the commandments of the Lord.  He gave “them a commandment, not of the Lord, but of himself.”  I suppose that I have a view of the commandments we receive from prophets and apostles as absolute, and nearly infallible.  These words of the Lord demonstrate that belief is incorrect.
