“Cursed Are All Those That Shall Lift Up the Heel against Mine Anointed”

Doctrine and Covenants 121:16

16 Cursed are all those that shall lift up the heel against mine anointed, saith the Lord, and cry they have sinned when they have not sinned before me, saith the Lord, but have done that which was meet in mine eyes, and which I commanded them.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell said:

“A little criticism of the Brethren, which seems harmless enough, may not only damage other members but can even lead to one’s setting himself up as a substitute ‘light unto the world’ (2 Nephi 26:29). Yes, happily, some such prodigals do come back, but they usually walk alone, unaccompanied by those they once led astray!”
