The “apparent evolution in the scope” of the teachings of the Faith during 1844-1944
We perceive a no less apparent evolution in the scope of its
teachings, at first designedly rigid, complex and severe, subsequently recast,
expanded, and liberalized under the succeeding Dispensation, later expounded,
reaffirmed and amplified by an appointed Interpreter, and lastly systematized
and universally applied to both individuals and institutions.
