"I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose." (Doctrine and Covenants 101:80)

"I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land . . . whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil." (Doctrine and Covenants 98:6-7)

"Even this nation will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground and when the Constitution is on the brink of ruin this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction." Joseph Smith (Joseph Smith Papers, LDS Church Historical Archives, Box 1, March 10, 1844; June 1976 Ensign, pp. 64-65)

The Gospel Key
To Our True Constitution


      The original title of this book was THE UNITED STATES HAS TWO CONSTITUTIONS—How to identify and promote the true Constitution.

      However, it seemed appropriate to change the title because readers tended to focus so much on the fact that the Supreme Court applies a "Constitution" of its own, different from that of the Framers, that I felt that many people missed the real message of the book.

      The real message of the book is to bring to the attention of Latter-day Saints the following:

      First, that the Framers' Constitution is based on gospel principles while the Supreme Court's "Constitution" is based on opposite principles, and

      Second, that because Latter-day Saints are accustomed to recognize and distinguish the two sets of principles they are uniquely qualified to understand and apply our true Constitution.
