Stay on PathOur question today isn’t rhetorical, rather, it stems from a comment made by LDS apostle Dieter Uchtdorf at the October 2015 General Conference.

Couched in a long sermon, Mr. Uchtdorf said all members would benefit from asking themselves a series of questions to evaluate where they are in life. This way, he said, they’d also be better prepared to answer questions from non-members.

We’re taking a look at the key parts of his speech, and then we’ll ask our own set of questions!

Ensign, ‘It Works Wonderfully!,’ November 2015; “Is the Gospel Working for You? … Sometimes the truth may just seem too straightforward, too plain, and too simple for us to fully appreciate its great value. So we set aside what we have experienced and know to be true in pursuit of more mysterious or complicated information.

General Conference, ‘Approaching the Throne of God with Confidence’, October 201Mormon Decisions 104; “Embrace voluntary, wholehearted obedience as part of your life. Acknowledge that you cannot love God without also loving His commandments. The Savior’s standard is clear and simple: “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Selective obedience brings selective blessings, and choosing something bad over something worse is still choosing wrong. You can’t watch a bad movie and expect to feel virtuous because you did not watch a very bad one. Faithful observance of some commandments doesn’t justify neglecting others. Abraham Lincoln rightly said, “When I do good I feel good, when I do bad I feel bad” (in William H. Herndon and Jesse William Weik, Herndon’s Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life, 3 vols. [1889], 3:439).” – Jörg Klebingat

Follow the Prophets

Conference Report, “Follow the Prophets”, Oct. 1981, pp. 90–91; “If we really do love God, then indeed we must and we will love and revere his anointed ones… Of his faithful servants the Lord has said: These are they who overcome by faith. Wherefore, all things are theirs and they are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. These are they whose names are written in heaven, where God and Christ are the judge of all. These are they whose glory is that of the sun, even the glory of God, the highest of all.” – Mark Petersen
