L. Tom Perry (Sunday am session)

Recommended Posts

Today we find ourselves in another war. A war of word, deed and thought.

Secularism is becoming the norm, and many of its beliefs and practices are in direct conflict with those that were instituted by the Lord himself for the benefit of His children.

Obedience to law is liberty.

A victory for the war in heaven was a victory for agency.

We should never underestimate Satan's will to succeed.

Each choice you and I make is a test to our agency. Our choice can determine liberty and eternal life or captivity and death.

One way to measure ourselves and previous generations is to follow the commandments.

As a culture we still follow 4 of the commandments. We disdain murder, stealing and lying.

As a larger society we dismiss the other six commandments.

Coveting has become far too common in life.

A strengthening of families is deteriorating at an alarming rate.

As we give up commitments and fidelity we remove the glue that holds our society together.

The sacred acts we use for procreation should only be between a man and a woman and within the bounds of marriage.

Man and women receive their agency from God but their liberty to eternal happiness is based on keeping the commandments.

We must not pick and choose which commandments we should keep but acknowledge all of His commandments.

The world changes constantly and dramatically, but God, His commandments, and promised blessings do not change

From L. Tom Perry:

"Each choice you and I make is a test of our agency. Whether we choose to be obedient or disobedient to the commandments of God is actually a choice between liberty and eternal life and captivity and death."

"Sin will always be sin. Disobedience to the Lord's commandments will always deprive us of his blessings."

"Men and women receive that agency as a gift from God, but their liberty in turn, their eternal happiness, comes from obedience to his law."

"The restored gospel of Jesus Christ never wavers, nor should it's stakes and wards, it's families, nor it's individual members. We must not pick and choose which commandments we think are important to keep."
