Question Box: Gifts of the Spirit

Q. Do Mormons Believe in Spiritual Warfare and the Gifts of the Spirit?

Thanks for your questions.  I’m not sure what you mean by ‘Spiritual Warfare’, though.  Sorry.  If you’d like to resubmit a question and clarify, that would be great.

We do believe in spiritual gifts.  Joseph Smith was once asked about the beliefs and history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He wrote them a letter and at the end included a list of some of our basic beliefs.  These are now called the Thirteen Articles of Faith.  The seventh states our belief in spiritual gifts.

“We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.” (Article of Faith 7)
