Alma 51:1-4:

And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, they having established peace between the people of Lehi and the people of Morianton concerning their lands, and having commenced the twenty and fifth year in peace; Nevertheless, they did not long maintain an entire peace in the land, for there began to be a contention among the people concerning the chief judge Pahoran; for behold, there were a part of the people which desired that a few particular points of the law should be altered. But behold, Pahoran would not alter nor suffer the law to be altered; therefore, he did not hearken to those who had sent in their voices with their petitions concerning the altering of the law. Therefore, those which were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with him, and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land;

This is a good example of what we should not do. Just because we don’t like something in the law of God we can’t change it. This is what happened to the church on earth. One person wanted to change something here and someone else wanted to change something there and before you know it we have thousands of churches who believe stuff that is not even close to what Christ taught. People today go to a church where they teach what the person already believes, not what it should be where the go to church to learn what Christ taught.  Remember Christ is the one who wrote the gospel, not a man. How can we change it?
