knowledge and testimony come through obedience (Heber C. Kimball; John 7:17)
There are a great many things, probably, that are taught you from this stand—that is, from individuals. They are taught to you; and you, probably, have not got faith and confidence in them. Well, now, I do not care whether you have or not: if you will go and do as you are told, you shall have a knowledge, although you had not a particle of faith when you began. That is curious religion; but there is no knowledge on any other principle, only by obedience.
Heber C. Kimball
Journal of Discourses 6:30
If any man will
ado his bwill, he shall cknow of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or I speak of myself.
