 Leviticus 19:31 “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.”

 General Conference, ‘Deepening Our Conversion to Jesus Christ’, October 2021 “Studying the scriptures is an important part of understanding the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ. …Through this understanding, individuals build trust in His promises made in the scriptures, as well as in the promises and blessings of modern prophets. …

In studying the gospel, we are seeking to become a ‘new creature’ (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Teaching from the scriptures transforms people. The power of the Holy Ghost is manifest through them to positively change lives.

The Holy Ghost guides us toward truth and testifies to us of the truth…We should seek the companionship of the Holy Ghost. …

We must seek everything that invites the influence of the Spirit and reject anything that deviates from this influence.” — Arnulfo Valenzuela, General Authority Seventy (more…)

 General Conference, ‘The Things of My Soul’, October 2021 “Things of the soul are clarified and deepened by asking questions, preparing to hear promptings, lifting sights beyond the ways of the world and giving purpose to work in the gospel and life.

Follow God’s living prophet.” — Ronald Rasband (more…)

Holland

 General Conference, ‘The Temple and Your Spiritual Foundation’, October 2021 “The temple lies at the center of strengthening faith and spiritual fortitude because everything taught in the temple increases understanding of Jesus Christ. …

Ponder these three truths: 1. The Restoration is a process, not an event, and will continue until the Lord comes again. 2. The ultimate objective of the gathering of Israel is to bring the blessings of the temple to God’s faithful children. 3. As we seek how to accomplish that objective more effectively, the Lord reveals more insights. The ongoing Restoration needs ongoing revelation.” — Russell Nelson [emp. added] (more…)
