Posts Tagged ‘Robert D. Hales’

 Melissa e-mailed me the meme of a Mormon quote that’s quite popular on FB. She mentioned the quote had no reference on where to find the original source so I went looking around and found this in a speech given by one of their apostles, Robert D. Hales.

Our question is this –

If you’re a true prophet of God wouldn’t you know your salvation is dependent upon the works of Jesus and not yourself?

Really now, if their commander in chief doesn’t have faith in what he’s doing, how are the followers supposed to have unquestioning faith?

Luke 18:11, 13; “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.”

 Mormon Today, ‘Elder Hales’ Advice on How to End Your Prayer Could Change Your Life’;  “When we end our prayers with “Thy will be done,” we are doing what the Savior did in the Garden of Gethsemane, for what we are saying is, “Whatever the test, whatever I’m to learn, I will always love Thee.” – Robert D. Hales

Witnessing Tip of the Day April 2April 7 – Role of the Holy Spirit. There are many ways in which God’s Holy Spirit works inside of us. One of those ways is the fruits of the Holy Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23. Another is the way in how He works inside of us on a daily basis, moment by moment, guiding us along in life. John 16:13; “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

robert halesEnsign, “The Eternal Family,” Nov. 1996, p. 65; “Because of the importance of the family to the eternal plan of happiness, Satan makes a major effort to destroy the sanctity of the family, demean the importance of the role of men and women, encourage moral uncleanliness and violations of the sacred law of chastity, and to discourage parents from placing the bearing and rearing of children as one of their highest priorities.” – Robert D. Hales

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, ‘If Ye Love Me Keep My Commandments,’ October 2014; “In the premortal Council in Heaven, Lucifer rebelled against Heavenly Father’s plan. Those who followed Lucifer ended their eternal progression—be careful who you follow!

Then Jesus expressed His commitment to obey, saying, “Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever.”1 … Because our Savior was obedient, He atoned for our sins, making possible our resurrection and preparing the way for us to return to our Heavenly Father, who knew we would make mistakes as we learned obedience in mortality. When we obey, we accept His sacrifice, for we believe that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws, ordinances, and commandments given in the gospel.4

Our Worthiness Brings Us Strength

Coming to Ourselves: The Sacrament, the Temple, and Sacrifice in Service”, General Conference, Apr. 2012; “Worthiness to hold a temple recommend gives us the strength to keep our temple covenants. How do we personally gain that strength? We strive to obtain a testimony of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, the reality of the Atonement, and the truthfulness of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the Restoration. We sustain our leaders, treat our families with kindness, stand as a witness of the Lord’s true Church, attend our Church meetings, honor our covenants, fulfill parental obligations, and live a virtuous life. You may say that sounds like just being a faithful Latter-day Saint! You are right. The standard for temple recommend holders is not too high for us to achieve. It is simply to faithfully live the gospel and follow the prophets.”—Elder Robert D. Hales
