  • “I remember when sisters used to say, "Well, but we could buy it at the store a lot cheaper than we can put it up." But that isn't quite the answer, is it, Sister Spafford? Because there will come a time when there isn't a store. I remember long years ago that I asked a very prominent grocer who had a chain of grocery stores, "How long would your supply of groceries last if you did not have trucks to bring in new supplies?" And he said, "Maybe we could strech it out two weeks from our storehouses and from our supplies." People could get awfully hungry after two weeks are over.”

    (President Spencer W. Kimball, CR, April 1974, pp. 184-85) #awakentoourawfulsituation #spencerwkimball

  • “Whenever the God of heaven reveals His gospel to mankind, Satan, the archenemy to Christ, introduces a counterfeit...

    ...The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established.

    Since 1917 this godless counterfeit to the gospel has made tremendous progress toward its objective of world domination.

    Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” (Ezra Taft Benson)

  • "As a watchman on the tower, I feel to warn you that one of the chief means of misleading our youth and destroying the family unit is our educational institutions. President Joseph F. Smith referred to false educational ideas as one of the three threatening dangers among our Church members. ... parents can help expose some of the deceptions of men like Sigmund Freud, Charles Darwin, John Dewey, Karl Marx, John Keynes, and others."
    (Ezra Taft Benson, A Plea to Strengthen Our Families)

  • It is one of the most basic teachings in the Gospel - that there was a war in Heaven over agency. We, who were born into this world, chose and fought for agency. Ezra Taft Benson said, “Latter-day Saints should be reminded how and why they voted as they did in Heaven. If some have decided to change their vote, they should repent and throw their support on the side of freedom” (CR, Oct. 1961).

  • There are many ways to be in bondage. We are all somehow in bondage to something, but to not recognize one's bondage is part of the elusive trap of the adversary. When one rationalizes sin and addiction and when one feels they are somehow owed something, they become slaves to this adversarial agenda. One might publicly condemn sin, addiction, and even socialism, but still secretly and subtly live them.
