23 For the time speedily shall come that all churches which are built up to get gain, and all those who are built up to get power over the flesh, and those who are built up to become popular in the eyes of the world, and those who seek the lusts of the flesh and the things of the world, and to do all manner of iniquity; yea, in fine, all those who belong to the kingdom of the devil are they who need fear, and tremble, and quake they are those who must be brought low in the dust; they are those who must be consumed as stubble; and this is according to the words of the prophet.

Quotes for Discussion

Unrestrained passion, ungoverned appetite, envy, hatred, wealth, and power used to govern men and to crush them—these are the enemies of peace. They bring misery to the individual. They bring unhappiness in the home. They bring war and contention in the world, discontent, misery and death. They are the opposite of the peace which Christ came to give the world.

Classify them, and you will find that under one of those three nearly every given temptation…comes to us as (1) a temptation of the appetite; (2) a yielding to the pride and fashion and vanity of those alienated from the things of God; or (3) a gratifying of the passion, or a desire for the riches of the world, or power among men.

David O. McKay, Conference Report, Oct. 1911, p. 59
