Be Not Deceived, but Continue in Steadfastness

My scripture studies article “Be Not Deceived, but Continue in Steadfastness: D&C 26; 28; 43:1-7; 50; 52:14-19.”  Quote from the opening paragraph:

“Deception was a reoccurring problem among the members of the early church.  Between July 1830 through June 1831 the Lord gave at least five major sections of the Doctrine & Covenants to correct misunderstanding, false prophets, false leaders, false revelations and false spirits so that the members would not be deceived.  In most of these situations the sincere, faithful seekers found security in the Lord as he answered their vexing concerns.  For those that fell prey to the deceptions of Satan the Lord rebuked them sharply and then returned to them with increased love and compassion.  In some cases false spirits or disturbing spiritual manifestations were rebuked by Joseph Smith, who then taught by inspiration from God various keys to discern the truth.  In this article we will review the historical context of these various situations as a way to more fully appreciate the sections assigned to this lesson (D&C 26, 28, 43, 50 and 52) and integrate the revealed principles into our lives.”
