Russell M. Nelson - Saturday pm session

Recommended Posts

We live to die and we die to live again.

Our faith now becomes part of our posterity’s faith later.

Satan constantly strives to influence us and makes us miserable.

We live in a time of turmoil.

We do not need to let our fears displace our faith. We can combat those fears by strengthening our faith.

There will be many who will pick which commandments they will keep and ignore the others that they will break. He called this the cafeteria plan to keeping the commandments. One must keep ALL the commandments.

God’s holy angels are ever on call to help us.

A commitment to be a full tithe payer is essential. Tithing is an ancient law from God. Tithing will keep your name enrolled in the people of God and will keep you protected in the vengeance and day of burning.

How you deal with life’s trials is part of the development of your faith.

Quoting President Monson “The future is as bright as your faith.”

I wondered who else caught the following statement to us by one of the Lord's servants:

"... difficult days are ahead. Rarely in the future will it be easy or popular to be a faithful Latter-Day Saint."

I'd like to hear some of the thoughts from forum members regarding this very pointed statement.

To paraphrase a friend’s sacrament meeting talk,

We say you shouldn’t drink or smoke. I don’t.

We say you shouldn’t swear or speak rudely. I don’t.

We say you shouldn’t break the law of chastity. I don’t.

We say you shouldn’t attend inappropriate parties. I don’t.

We say you shouldn’t watch inappropriate movies. I don’t.

You may think that one like me doesn’t ever have any fun? I don’t.

Sadly, it's popular today to be wicked. It's difficult to uphold our covenants and values when there is so much pressure in today's society to do otherwise. The worse part is, the world today is as good as it will ever be until Christ comes again. It is all down-hill from here.

Someone actually said that in church? That comes across that if they aren't doing the other things they can't have fun.
