He commandeth that there shall be NO PRIESTCRAFTS; for, behold,
PRIESTCRAFTS are that MEN PREACH AND SET THEMSELVES UP for a light unto the world,
THAT THEY MAY GET GAIN and PRAISE OF THE WORLD;
but they seek not the welfare of Zion [pure in heart].
Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing;
wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment
that all men should have charity [see Grind the Faces of the Poor], which charity is love.
And except they should have charity they were nothing. (2 Nephi 26:29)

Soon to Fulfilled Prophecy on Mormonism
1 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and IT BROUGHT FORTH WILD GRAPES.
3 And now, O INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM [MORMON CHURCH], and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
4 WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE MORE to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, BROUGHT IT FORTH WILD GRAPES? (Isaiah 5:1–4)
God’s Judgment is Coming. His Favor Has Left
5 And now go to; I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I WILL DO TO MY VINEYARD: I will TAKE AWAY THE HEDGE thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and BREAK DOWN THE WALL thereof, and IT SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN:
6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but THERE SHALL COME UP BRIERS AND THORNS: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
7 For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel [Stewards of The Holy Book of Mormon], and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment [justice], but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry. (Isaiah 5:5–7)
