Maybe the whiskey just didn't sit well on a 5 year old's gut? I know that later in life he did drink, even in the Nauvoo period. Benjamin F. Johnson tells of Joseph going to his house and having a glass of wine or tea, while discussing the gospel. Of course, the WoW wasn't a commandment as yet.
K'aya K'ama, Gerald/gary Smith gszion1 @juno.com http://www .geocities.com/rameumptom/index.html "No one is as hopelessly enslaved as the person who thinks he's free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Sandra: You know something I think of alot and wonder if any of y`all do is that Joseph Smith would not even drink the whiskey they tried to give him to dull the pain when they worked on his leg, do we rely on medicine instead of priesthood blessings and our Heavenly Father too much? Just wondered what your feelings are on this? Sandra ________________________________________________________________ Sign Up for Juno Platinum Internet Access Today Only $9.95 per month!
