Power from Doctrine, Not from Compulsion — Wilford Woodruff (March 24, 1844)

In relation to the power over the minds of the mankind which I hold, I would say it is in consequence of the power of truth in the doctrins which I have been an instrument in the hands of God of presenting unto them & not because of any compulsion on my part I will ask if I ever got any of it unfair If I have not reproved you in the gate, I ask did I ever exercise any compulsion over any man. did I not give him the liberty of disbelieveing any doctrin I have preached if he saw fit, why do not my enemies strike a blow at the doctrin, they cannot do it it is truth . . .
