Comments

The 1845 Proclamation of the Twelve Apostles was a controversial document addressed to the kings of the world, the President of the United States, and other authority figures, and clearly states that the authority of God's kingdom rests with the Latter-day Saints.According to Crawley: "The proclamation declares that the kingdom of God is established on the earth, that its authority rests with the Latter-day Saints, and that all must repent of their sins and be baptized into the kingdom. To the kings and rulers of the earth it says, 'You are not only required to repent and obey the gospel...but you are also hereby commanded, in the name of Jesus Christ, to put your silver and your gold, your ships and steam-vessels, your railroad trains and your horses, chariots, camels, mules, and litters, into active use, for the fulfillment of these purposes.' The American Indians, it asserts, are a remnant of the tribes of Israel and must be educated and civilized, for they are to assist in building the New Jerusalem in America while the Jews rebuild the old Jerusalem. It concludes with a series of one-sentence statements summarizing the fundamentals of Mormonism."
