And now, O man, remember, and perish not.”

Ensign, General Conference. April 2008; “I long have been impressed with the truth that meaningful prayer requires both holy communication and consecrated work. Blessings require some effort on our part before we can obtain them, and prayer, as “a form of work…is an appointed means for obtaining the highest of all blessings” (Bible Dictionary, “Prayer,” 753). We press forward and persevere in the consecrated work of prayer, after we say “amen,” by acting upon the things we have expressed to Heavenly Father.” – David A. Bednar
New Era, “Balancing Church History”, June 2013; “Certainly, the world has changed in the last generation or two. The Internet has put all kinds of information at our fingertips—good, bad, truthful, untruthful—including information on Church history. You can read a great deal about our history, but it’s important to read about it and understand it in context. The difficulty with some information online is that it’s out of context and you don’t really see the whole picture.

Teachings of Presidents of the Church, chapter 3 Plan of Salvation; “The plan of salvation, or code of laws, which is known as the gospel of Jesus Christ, was adopted in the heavens, before the foundation of the world was laid. It was appointed there that Adam our father should come to this earth and stand at the head of the whole human family. It was a part of this great plan, that he should partake of the forbidden fruit and fall, thus bringing suffering and death into the world, even for the ultimate good of his children.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

February 28 – Matthew 16:13-16; “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptists: some, Elias; and other, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”.
The Athanasian Creed
This creed was named after Athanasius (293-373 AD) the man who fought tirelessly against attacks on the Trinity by Arian. Athanasius was the fourth century bishop of Alexandria and while he didn’t write this creed it was written upon the doctrines he fought to keep in the orthodox church.
Symbolum Apostolorum (Apostle’s Creed)
This creed arose from the earliest teachings of the apostles, but it’s not to be attributed to them directly. This creed dates back to the mid sixth century (circa 542 AD) and was used as a simple baptismal confession. There are several variations to this creed, but they’re all the same in essence and content.
