If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. (John 15:18)
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. (Matthew 10:22)
And ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. (Matthew 24:9)
Jesus said: “I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world will HATE YOU.” Also “Blessed are ye, when men shall persecute you, and shall say ALL manner of EVIL AGAINST YOU falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven.” But “Woe, Woe, unto you, when ALL men shall Speak WELL OF YOU! for so did they unto the FALSE prophets which were before you.”
(John 15:18-19; JST Matt. 6:25) (Matt. 5:11-12; 3 Nephi 12:11-12) ( Luke 6:26)
"A Friend of the World is the Enemy of God."
“When the spirit of persecution, the spirit of hatred, of wrath and malice ceases in the world against this (LDS) people, it will be the time that this (LDS) people have APOSTATIZED and joined hands with the wicked, and never until then.”
Brigham Young (JD 4:327)
Lord’s Church is Overthrown ONLY by the Transgression of my people:
For the Lord hath said: This is my church, and I will establish it; and nothing shall overthrow it, save it is the *transgression of my people.
*Transgression = Sin - Sin = Apostasy, Blasphemy, Disobedience, Iniquity, Pollute, Trespass, Abomination, Bondage, Carnal Mind, Corruption, Natural man, Err, Wickedness etc…

On Leading people astray Brigham Young Said:
“I told the (LDS) people that if they would not believe the revelations that God had given,He (The LORD) would suffer the devil to give revelations,
Have I seen this fulfilled? I have.
I told the (LDS) people that as true as God lived, if they (LDS) would NOT have truth, they (LDS) would have error sent unto them and they (LDS) would believe it."
(Brigham Young -Deseret News, June 8, 1873; 2 Thes. 2:10-12)
“I am led, likewise, to preach the things of this world and to accept things that are NOT of God, how easy it would be for me to lead you astray! But I say to you, live so that you will know for yourselves whether I tell the truth or not.” Brigham Young (J.D. 18:248)
"Jesus answered them,
I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth." John 8:37-40
