“[T]o work with people of other faiths to improve the moral fabric of our communities, nations, and world and to protect religious freedom….we need to understand and comprehend ‘things which have been’ (D&C 88:79), with particular emphasis on events that were precursors to the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that still need to be protected.
[F]our major ‘things which have been’ [are:] Tyndale and the King James Bible; English common law and the U.S. Constitution; Scientific achievements, including the Industrial Revolution, the communications revolution, and advancements in medicine; [and] A return to Judeo-Christian moral principles.”
