When All Other Standards Will Fail – Orson Pratt

Orson_Pratt_engravingCalled Unto Liberty, 19th Century Sermons, Orson Pratt

The only way for us is to have a true standard, which must be from heaven—a standard ordained of God, which we can follow with the utmost confidence—a standard we can have faith in—a standard to which all human wisdom and human judgment must give way. Such a standard only will be eternal, and will prevail when all other standards will fail.
