This shall be a law unto you, that ye receive not the teachings of any that shall come before you [besides Joseph Smith] as revelations or commandments. 43:5

Satan stole James Covill from Jesus
AbsurdityIntoleranceInjustice 40:1-3

1 Behold, verily I say unto you, that the heart of my servant James Covel was right before me, for he covenanted with me that he would obey my word.

Things were good between me [Jesus] and James Covel. [1]

He said he'd obey me.

2 And he received the word with gladness, but straightway Satan tempted him; and the fear of persecution and the cares of the world caused him to reject the word.

But Satan tempted him and he rejected the word.

3 Wherefore he broke my covenant, and it remaineth with me to do with him as seemeth me good. Amen.

So he broke our agreement.

Now I have to decide what to do to him.
