109.Brigham Young's Remark?

"Brethren, this Church will be led onto the very brink of hell by the leaders of this people, then God will raise up the one `Mighty and Strong' spoken of in the 85th Section of the Doctrine & Covenants to save and redeem this Church."     
                                               by Brigham Young [??]

DURING the past 90 years, many have cited this startling remark. I have found it in a numerous books, pamphlets, unpublished sources, un-counted times on the internet, hundreds in private and public conservation, twelve times in Truth magazine published from 1936 to 1952, and now I find it in the five volume set The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young, published in 2009.

Although, those who cite this remark, seldom give a source. But, some have given one or more of the following: a date, an event, a location, who were there, who heard it, written in a diary, found in the Church History Library and now in
The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young.

To me there are some things to think about. 

Certainly, Brigham Young said many things which have been written, some which have been passed on orally, most never recorded and a number or statements have been attributed to Brigham Young, but not until 50 years after his death.

Mormon Doctrine: Mandatory and Forbidden

For various reasons many insist that there is much mandatory doctrine required of Mormons and much forbidden doctrine. Drawing from many sources and such enlightening examples as the Adam God theory and Polygamy, I demonstrate that, from its beginning, the LDS Church has had very little official doctrine and almost no mandatory or forbidden doctrine.
