We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government, whereby one religious society is fostered and another proscribed in its spiritual privileges, and the individual rights of its members, as citizens, denied. 134:9

Trivia: In Section 124, who did the Lord say would heal the sick, cast out devils, and be immune to deadly poisons, and raise the dead?

John the apostle is still alive (like a flame or an angel)
Absurdity 7:1-8

1 And the Lord said unto me: John, my beloved, what desirest thou? For if you shall ask what you will, it shall be granted unto you.

The Lord said to me,

John, my beloved, what do you want? [1]

I'll give you whatever you ask for.

2 And I said unto him: Lord, give unto me power over death, that I may live and bring souls unto thee.

I said to him,

I'd like to live forever.

3 And the Lord said unto me: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, because thou desirest this thou shalt tarry until I come in my glory, and shalt prophesy before nations, kindreds, tongues and people.

Jesus said to me,

Okay, you'll live until I return in all my glory.

4 And for this cause the Lord said unto Peter: If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? For he desired of me that he might bring souls unto me, but thou desiredst that thou mightest speedily come unto me in my kingdom.

5 I say unto thee, Peter, this was a good desire; but my beloved has desired that he might do more, or a greater work yet among men than what he has before done.

Then Jesus said to Peter,

If my beloved dosen't die until I return,

what's it to you?

6 Yea, he has undertaken a greater work; therefore I will make him as flaming fire and a ministering angel; he shall minister for those who shall be heirs of salvation who dwell on the earth.

7 And I will make thee to minister for him and for thy brother James; and unto you three I will give this power and the keys of this ministry until I come.

8 Verily I say unto you, ye shall both have according to your desires, for ye both joy in that which ye have desired.

I'll make him like a flaming fire and an angel.
