 Today we’re checking out two talks given at GC; one by Dallin Oaks, the other by David Bednar. As we’ve noted earlier, the main theme for this conference was addressing racism. However, true to form, they couldn’t miss the opportunity to throw in the obligatory false teachings.

4.Proving Oneself for Eternal Progression

General Conference, ‘We Will Prove Them Herewith’, October 2020 “…tests in the school of mortality are a vital element of our eternal progression. Interestingly, however, the word test is not found even one time in the scriptural text of the standard works in English.
