trumanmadsen“President Grant believed that intellectual reasons for refusing to investigate the church or for leaving the church are after ‘after the fact’ – and the fact is behavior.  When a person’s life is out of harmony with the truth he tends to find a rationale for his behavior.  He has received some light, but he tries to suppress it and invents plausible reasons to do so.  But he believed conscience will speak out in protest at our lives and our sins when we are out of harmony.  On the other hand, our conscience will ‘kiss’ us, as it were, when we honor the core of our hearts, which is truth.”

The increase in demonstrably measurable areas, such as endowed members with a current temple recommend, adult full-tithe payers, and those serving missions, has been dramatic. Let me say again, the Church has never been stronger.”

dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“As you accept the responsibilities to seek after truth with an open mind and a humble heart, you will become more tolerant of others, more open to listen, more prepared to understand, more inclined to build up instead of tearing down, and you will be more willing to go where God wants you to go.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf



“Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized.  In the first, it is ridiculed.  In the second, it is opposed.  In the third, it is regarded as self-evident.”
