And I will say, as I have before said, if guilt before my God and my brethren rests upon me in the least, it is in this one thing, that I have revealed too much concerning God, and his kingdom, and the designs of our Father in heaven. If my skirts are stained in the least with wrong, it is because I have been too free in telling what God is, how he lives, the nature of his providences and designs in creating the world, in bringing forth the human family on the earth, and his designs in creating the world, n bringing forth the human family on the earth, his designs concerning them, etc. If I had, like Paul, said—"But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant," perhaps it would have been better for the people.
